Free Democrats (Norway)

Fridemokratene is an organization formed by former members of the Norwegian Progress Party in 1994. Because of inner tension, the 1993 election halved the Progress Party (6.3 percent and 10 representatives). In 1994 four representatives of the "libertarian wing" broke out, formed an independent group in parliament, and founded a party more ideologically consistent libertarian, Fridemokratene. The Free Democrats no longer participate in elections and function merely as a think tank and organization for Norwegian libertarians, regardless of their political allegiance.

  • 1994-1996 Ellen Christine Christiansen
  • 1996-1998 Heidi Nordby Lunde
