Social Liberal Party is a conservative Brazilian political party led by Jair Bolsonaro, despite what its name suggests. The party has changed its political ideology several times since its creation. ideologically connected to the libertarian and objectivist right. It was founded with moderately liberal ideas, who argued that the federal government should spend on healthcare, education, security, energy and other basic industries, but that would total space for other sectors would be dominated by the private sector.

However, since 2015, taking advantage of the fact of the party being small and insignificant, the libertarian internal tendency LIVRES (in English: FREE) decided to make an ideological reformulation in the party, leading the party to a more right-wing liberalism, keeping the moderate social ideas, but turning the party fiscally conservative and advocate of limited government.[1]

The party shifted further to the right, especially on social issues, when Jair Bolsonaro took control over it.

The party is a right-wing party, as it takes conservative positions on both economic and social issues. Previously, it took social liberal positions, but it has since shifted.

According to its official website, the party supports the American model of federalism.[2]
