The Popular Social Party participated in the elections of 1956 but failed to enter the parliament. In the elections of 1958 it participated with other right-wing in the Union of Populars and elected 2 MPs.

Political program[edit]

Its main political program, as it was claimed, was social and economic justice. The party suggested social reforms and a new organization of the Greek production.
