Liberala partiet ("the liberal party"), is a classical liberal political party in Sweden. It was founded in 2004. The leader of the party is Emil Tisell. The official name of the party is Liberala Partiet, however in the election process they are referred to as Klassiskt liberala partiet to avoid confusion with Folkpartiet liberalerna.[1][2] The party has its headquarters located in Stockholm and regional representatives in Gothenburg, Malmö, Uppsala, Eskilstuna and Kalmar.

Ideology[edit]

The following quote is taken from the English information section of the party's official website:

We in Liberala partiet (Classical liberal party) are classically minded liberals. We believe in a society where individuals are given power over their own lives. A society that gives priority to the individual, where duty cannot be imposed, and individuals cannot be made victims of a forced collective. Free and sovereign individuals are free to shape their own relationships and associations with other free and sovereign individuals.[3]
