HistoryEdit

First government and founding (1992-2001)Edit

Founded in 1992 for the first election, the Socialist Labour Party is the joint oldest party with the Libertarian Capitalist Party. In 1995, the party began to lurch more left wing, and having less tolerance of advocates of the Third Way, resulting in the formation of the Alternative Social Party in 1996 just before that year's election. The party won elections in 1992 and 1996 but lost the 2001 election, due to then leader of the ASP Yowt Crent's criticism of the party's 1995 left wing policies, stating the party was penalizing "modern social democrats" (met with much criticism from other parties). After controversial privatisation of the country's bus service resulting in it being split into 2 routes, the ASP's popularity declined. The new routes controversially served a mansion in the Upper Wealth Area parliamentary constituency, and there was no regulation of bus fares, resulting in the average bus ticket costing more than the hourly minimum wage.

In opposition (2001-2005)Edit

This was met with much criticism.

In government (2005-present)Edit

Aided by the unpopularity of the ASP, the party won the 2005 election, and held control in the 2009 and 2013 elections.
