KORWiN (Poland)

Coalition for the Renewal of the Republic – Liberty and Hope (KORWiN), since 8 October 2016 known also as Liberty (Polish: Wolność),[8] is a free market-capitalist, paleolibertarian and hard Eurosceptic political party in Poland established in 2015 by Janusz Korwin-Mikke as a result of his removal from Congress of the New Right, his former party.[9] Among the party's other members are Przemysław Wipler, who held a seat in the Polish Sejm and Robert Iwaszkiewicz, Member of the European Parliament. The party's Polish name was originally a backronym of the founder's name Korwin-Mikke, who took part in the 2015 presidential election.[10]
