* Christian Democrats[=/=]Right-wing Populists[=/=]Agrarians: ''Centro Democrático Social - Partido Popular (CDS-PP)'' (Democratic and Social Center - People's Party), had a more populist streak during the Manuel Monteiro and Paulo Portas eras (the latter, more the first mandate and the first part of the second).

During the Portas era (''idem''), also adopted an Agrarian discourse around the ''lavoura'' ("tillage") and started visiting lots of farmers' markets while campaigning (Portas himself was called ''Paulinho das Feiras'', "Little Paul of the Farmers' Markets"), which still does today.

* Conservatives: ''Det Konservative Folkeparti'' (The Conservative People's Party): Somewhat unusually, they exist in Denmark and a Christian Democratic party doesn't. They are small and these days more or less locked into an alliance with ''Venstre''.

* Conservatives: ''Det Konservative Folkeparti'' (The Conservative People's Party): Somewhat unusually, they exist in Denmark and a Christian Democratic party doesn't. They were formed as merger of ''Højre'' ("The Right"), who represented the landed aristocracy and Church of Denmark, a moderate (i.e. more to the right) faction of ''Venstre'', and the ''De Frikonservative'' ("The Free Conservatives"), who were opposed to ''Højre'''s main party line and wanted unity between the moderate sectors of Højre and Venstre around a new tax reform they had proposed, but not getting it they split; they would influence ''Venstre'' in not implementing universal suffrage for local elections, but would later split with them of a new democratic constitution, taking that moderate faction of ''Venstre'' with them. They are small and these days more or less locked into an alliance with ''Venstre''.

* Classical Liberals: ''Venstre, Danmarks liberale parti'' (Left, Denmark's Liberal Party): Usually just called ''Venstre''. Got its paradoxical name because when the party was founded the 19th century, it represented the left wing of liberal bourgeoisie against ''Højre'' ("The Right"), the landed aristocracy and Church of Denmark. Later on the workers got in on the game and were further left than ''Left'', and ''Høyre'' died out with the aristocracy, and merged with...

** '''Identitarian movement/Neo-Fascists''': A more sophisticated Far Right movement than the typical street thug Neo-Nazis, even though they advocate pretty much the same ideas. Some would call them pseudo-intellectuals. Still in its very early stages and with no big parties belonging to this subcategory to this date.

* '''Regionalists''': This is Europe, after all. Regionalist parties exist in various forms and range from advocating secession to demanding autonomy. Vary wildly on their other political platforms, ranging from left-wing (e.g. the Republican Left of Catalonia) to center-left/social-democratic (e.g. the [[BritishPoliticalSystem Scottish National Party]]) to center-right (e.g. the New Flemish Alliance) to right-populist (e.g. the Italian ''Lega Nord'') to far-right (e.g. the ''Vlaams Belang'' or "Flemish Interest").

* Classical Liberals: ''Centerpartiet (C)'' (Centre Party). Formerly the Agrarian Party, the party has within the last two decades gone from being the tired old useful idiots to the Social Democrats without any passion other than to maintain the status quo: to the (by rhetoric) most ideologically driven pro-business party led by a young woman (Annie Lööf) with AynRand as her favorite author and UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher as her political inspiration. This shift of gear makes them an easy target of parody. They also compete with the Green Party for the environmentalist vote, even though the Centre’s proposals are clearly more the result of greenwash corporate lobbyists than any genuine concerns

* '''Agrarians''': In countries that are less industrialised, or for various historical reasons, there are parties defending the interests of the farmers. They're usually less urban counterparts of one of the parties above - when farmers are poor but numerous, Agrarians will be effectively left wing, treating them as a kind of workers, but when the farmers are effectively businesspeople, agrarians will be more liberal economically. Since farmers tend to be more conservative than the city folk, the Agrarians also are more socially conservative and religious - but quite often they'd get along with Greens. If they survived industrialisation, they typically have some "basic" power base - farmers tend to vote for farmers, after all.

all. In the Scandinavia and the Baltics, historically agrarian parties tend now to be the main centrist parties with a slight classical liberal and pro-environmental tendency.
