The political fusion experiment between a social liberal party and a conservative party is slowly heading towards its end. It has members that are former members of the Danish Social Liberal Party and members coming from the
Conservative People’s Party. The founder is the Danish-Palestinian politician, Naser Khader, a leading
proponent of peaceful co-existence of democracy and Islam. How’s that going for him is not clear but it is clear
however that his party now is heading towards a complete disaster. Background to this is the exit of a front figure
(besides Khader), Gitte Seeberg. She left the party in protest against the party’s status as a right-wing party, which
conflicted with her own desire to form a centrist party rejecting the influence of the Danish People’s Party.
It usually always ends up like this for parties being built upon populism or personalism (in this case, around Naser Khader).
Especially because a populist Party needs to satisfy as many as possible, not following a special ideology, and instead
having a more “strategic” Party program. This will inevitably end up in them being unable to render all supporters satisfied.
Furthermore, the whole existence of the Party is quite unnecessary due to the fact that is branded itself as a “new”
social liberal Party, a middle road between right-wing and left-wing, but fact is that all major parties in Denmark advocate
social liberal policies, at least economically (which is good, and totally the opposite to the Swedish situation).
