The Conservative People’s Party (Det Konservative Folkeparti) was founded on the basis of its predecessor, Højre (Right), but also on the Free Conservatives and a moderate faction of the Liberal Party (Venstre).

Today, the party is built on a strong belief in the virtues of the free market, and with the traditional focus on social responsibility and conservatism in cultural areas. The Conservative People’s Party is currently supporting the one-party minority government under the Liberal Party.
