National Progressive Party (Finland)

The National Progressive Party (Kansallinen Edistyspuolue) was a liberal political party in Finland from 1918 to 1951. Famous members of the party included Kaarlo Juho Ståhlberg and Risto Ryti, the first and fifth Presidents of Finland, and Sakari Tuomioja.

Edistyspuolue finished its existence in spring, 1951, as most of its active members had joined Finnish People's Party (Suomen Kansanpuolue). A minority group including Sakari Tuomioja founded Vapaamielisten Liitto.
