Freedom Party (Slovakia)

Freedom Party (Slovakia)

The Freedom Party ("Strana slobody") was a political party in Slovakia.

It was founded by some members of the Democratic Party in March 1946 as a party mainly for Catholics. It was headed by Vavro Šrobár and won 3 seats in the Czechoslovak parliament in the 1946 election.

When the Communists took power in Czechoslovakia in February 1948, the party joined the National Front. Its newspaper was called "Sloboda" (Freedom).

After the Velvet Revolution, in 1990, the party adopted a new, Christian programme, but remained without any importance in Slovak politics.
