Liberalism was organized in Brazil since 1831 in a traditional way as the opposition to conservatism. With the republican revolution of 1889 organized liberalism disappeared. Some liberal parties were founded in twentieth century. Since 1966 liberalism was best represented by the Democratic Movement. After multi-partism became a fact, more parties labeled themselves as liberal, but the word was also used by moderate conservative forces. At the moment three parties name themselves liberal, but the Liberal Front Party (Partido da Frente Liberal) is a conservative party, member of the International Democrat Union. The Liberal Party (Partido Liberal) can be considered a liberal partiy. The centrist Brazilian Democratic Movement (Movimento Democrático Brasileiro) takes a liberal position the spectrum.
