The Socialist Party of Aotearoa is a minor political party in New Zealand. It was formed in 1990 through a split in the Socialist Unity Party, led by G. H. Andersen. The current leader of the party is Brendan Tuohy.
The party publishes a monthly newspaper called Red Flag. It operates the Workers' Institute of Scientific Socialist Education (WISSE).
The party is best known through the influence of its late founder Andersen, a well-known trade unionist who served as president of the Auckland Trades Council, national secretary of the Socialist Unity Party, and president of the National Distribution Union.
