Det Liberale Folkeparti (Liberal People's Party, DLF) is a free market liberal party created in 1992 by some of the members of the Old Liberal People's Party. During the 1990's, some of Fremskrittspartiet's members perceived it to have become less liberal and joined DLF as well. In 2001, however, when five members of parliament representing Fremskrittspartiet were expelled from the party, they tried running under that name too. These had represented the nationalist wing of the party, and bought the rights to the party name from Tor Ingar Østerud for a cup of coffee. The court did, however, judge in favour of the liberalists. DLF has since become increasingly more market liberal, a promoter of market liberal principles and laissez-faire capitalism. ...more on Wikipedia about "Liberal People's Party (Norway, 1992)"
Det Liberale Folkeparti (Liberal People's Party, DLF) was established because of a split in the Norwegian liberal party Venstre in 1972. They couldn't agree on Norwegian participation in the European Union. The new party was called "Folkepartiet Nye Venstre". They later had to change their name because Venstre protested against this name. The new name became "Det Nye Folkepartiet". The name was changed in 1980 to "Det Liberale Folkepartiet". At the time of the split, 9 of Venstre's 13 members of the Storting joined the new party. But at the 1973 election, they only won one seat, from Hordaland. In 1977 they lost this seat, and never managed to enter parliament again. The party's popularity went down throughout the 1980s. In the local elections in 1987 Venstre and DLF ran on common lists in several counties and municipalities. In 1988, it was decided to officially end the party and merge with Venstre. In 1992 some of the old members decided to recreate DLF. Until 1988 DLF was, like Venstre, a social liberal party. ...more on Wikipedia about "Liberal People's Party (Norway, Old)"

Nasjonal Samling (Norwegian for "National Gathering" or "National Unification") was a fascist party in Norway before and during World War II, founded on May 17, 1933 by Vidkun Quisling and Johan Bernhard Hjort. The strongholds of the party were among people with a "national attitude" in the inner parts of the country, specifically in Telemark, and in the area around the capital Oslo. In the 1930s it cooperated closely with the Norwegian Centre Party (then known as the Agrarian Party) against expropriations of farms among other things. In addition the party played an important role in the development of both National romanticism and anticommunism in Norway, and the party was generally sympathetic to Germany and Italy. It was the fastest growing party before the war, though it never had larger support than 2.5 percent. By the end of the war it had 45,000 members. Famous members included former Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Hundseid and opera singer and Minister of Domestic Affairs Albert Viljam Hagelin. Novelist Knut Hamsun however, though sympathetic to the party's policies, was never a member. ...more on Wikipedia about "Nasjonal Samling"
