IdeologyEdit

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]
