The Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova (Romanian: Partidul Socialiştilor din Republica Moldova, PSRM) is a socialist political party in Moldova. Between 2005 and 2011 it was known as the Party of Socialists of Moldova «Motherland» (Partidul Socialiştilor din Moldova «Patria-Rodina», PSMPR).
The PSRM was founded in 1997 by members of the Socialist Party of Moldova. The Founding Congress took place on 29 June 1997 in Chişinău. Veronica Abramciuc and Eduard Smirnov were elected as co-chairmen of the new party.
In 2011, Igor Dodon, former member of the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova, joined the party and was elected chairman on 18 December of the same year. Subsequently a Socialist Group, which includes three former representatives of the PCRM, was set up in the Parliament.
The PSRM participated in the Moldovan parliamentary elections in 1998 and 2001 without success. In the 2005 legislative elections the party won as part of the Electoral Bloc Motherland 4.97% votes, what didn't allow it to jump over the electoral threshold of 6.0%.
In the 2009 legislative elections in April and July and the 2010 legislative elections it supported the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova. Its leader, Mrs. Veronica Abramciuc, was included in the PCRM candidates list.
