This article gives an overview of liberalism in Slovakia. It is limited to liberal parties with substantial support, mainly proved by having had a representation in parliament. The sign ⇒ denotes another party in that scheme. For inclusion in this scheme it isn't necessary so that parties labeled themselves as a liberal party.
Liberalism has never influenced politics in Slovakia. The neoliberal Alliance of the New Citizen (Aliancia Nového Občana, observer LI, member ELDR) campaigns on a relatively liberal platform.
