Borgerligt Centrum ("Civil Centre") was a Danish political party founded on 6 January 2009, by MP Simon Emil Ammitzbøll,[2] a former member of the Social Liberal Party. The party describes itself as a "centre right party founded on liberal and humanistic values".[3]

On 16 June 2009, Ammitzbøll officially disbanded the party, and attempted to join the other small centre party in the Danish Parliament, Liberal Alliance.[4] He officially declared the party dead,[5] and the only seat they have had in parliament was thus lost. However, the party which had been created behind him defied his attempt to disband the party and elected a new leader, Jeppe Søe.[1]

On 28 June 2009, the party threaten to sue the founder, who still had access to the member lists, the signatures (needed to run for election), the domain name, among other things.[6]


According to the party's website, the party has three key issues:[3]
