  • Liberal religious - formed from socially liberal Valtinist members of the party, this wing of the party has a fair amount of "cross-over" with the SDP on social issues
  • Moderate religous - formed from the more socially moderate or pro-Hansa Valtinist members of the party that tend to be much more aligned with the center ground of the political spectrum
  • Liberal Secular - the smallest overall faction, formed from former Centrists who are socially liberal. There is a fair amount of overlap with SDP
  • Moderate Secular- formed from former Centrists who are secular and pro-Hansa or more socially conservative. there is a fair amount of overlap with Valiant
