The Liberal Party was founded by the English-speaking member of the Landsting, Sean Renwick, in opposition to the Language Law Bill introduced to the Landsting on 5 December 2019. The bill, which gave the Norwegian language precedence over English in government business and titles, divided the assembly and created two blocks, the anti-Language Law Liberal Party the pro-Language Law Demirelian National Alliance.
The Liberals are a centrist, social liberal political party. The party espouses freedom and liberty along with necessary government intervention and protection of the citizens. Though supportive of the Demirelian monarchy, the Liberals favour a higher degree of constitutional monarchy than the system currently in place, wishing to restrict some of the monarchy's Powers. A core tenant of the party is its support for the rights and use of the English language an it’s speakers within Demirelia. The Liberal Party opposes Norwegianism, and believes the English language and English culture should play an equal part in Demirelian government and society as Norwegian.
