The Democratic Socialist Electoral League was a minor Australian political party that operated from 1998 until its voluntary deregistration in 2001.[1] It supported a broadly socialist platform.

Policy

The Democratic Socialist Electoral League espoused a left-wing position on most issues, including privatisation, the environment, immigration and civil rights.[2] The party also had a comprehensive preferencing arrangement, supporting the Greens and some other left-wing groups. It differentiated itself from the Greens by claiming that the latter had no clear economic policy.[2] It supported Labor over the Liberal Party, and was particularly opposed to the rise of One Nation.[2]

The party had links to the Marxist Democratic Socialist Perspective[3], which, after the DSEL's deregistration, contested elections as part of the Socialist Alliance.
