Liberalism in the Czech Republic

Résumé
This article gives an overview of liberalism in the Czech Republic. 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 is not necessary that parties label themselves as a liberal party. When liberalism started in the Czech lands, they were member states of Austria-Hungary. Liberals in the region started as part of the conservative nationalist National Party (Národní strana) or Old Czechs, but from 1874 they formed their own party: the National Liberal Party (Národní strana svobodomyslná), also known as the Young Czechs. Czech liberals usually do not call themselves liberals, but prefer labels such as progressive or even national socialist (which has nothing to do with the German variant). The liberal movement is currently unsuccessful in this country. Liberal parties are small or in decline and are unable to cooperate. They were unsuccessful at the 2004 European elections. At these elections the European Democrats (Evropští demokraté) proved to be a liberal alternative, but it joined the EPP. 1874: Liberals in Bohemia seceded from the National Party and formed the National Liberal Party. 1889: A faction of the National Party joined the National Liberal Party. 1897: The ⇒ Radical Progressive Party seceded from the party. 1899: The ⇒ Czech State Rights Radical Party seceded from the party. 1900: A faction seceded as the ⇒ Czech People's Party. 1918: The party merged with the ⇒ Czech State Rights Radical Party, the National Party and others into the mainly conservative Czech State Rights Democrats (Česká státoprávní demokracie), renamed in 1919 as the Czechoslovak National Democracy (Československá národní demokracie). 1924: Allies of president Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk left the party to form the ⇒ National Labour Party. 1934: After the party developed into a national-conservative party, it joined the National Unification (Národní sjedonocení).
