The Party of Alenka Bratušek (Slovene: Stranka Alenke Bratušek) is a political party in Slovenia. The party was founded on 31 May 2014 as the Alliance of Alenka Bratušek (Zavezništvo Alenke Bratušek, ZaAB).[5][6] The party was formed by Alenka Bratušek, who resigned as Prime Minister of Slovenia on 5 May 2014,[7] and other former members of Positive Slovenia.

Among the founding members were incumbent MPs Maša Kociper, Jerko Čehovin, Jani Möderndorfer, Maja Dimitrovski, former MP Peter Vilfan, ministers Roman Jakič and Metod Dragonja.[8] Present were also several guests: former Mercator retail group chief executive Miran Goslar, Verjamem party leader Igor Šoltes, MEP Tanja Fajon and Social Democrat MP Matjaž Han, Zares party president Darja Radić and the Democratic Party of Pensioners of Slovenia's Gorazd Žmauc.[9]

The party won 4.34% of the vote in 13 July 2014's Slovenian parliamentary election - and four seats in parliament.[10]

On 21 November 2014, the party became a full member of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe grouping in the European Parliament.[11]

On 21 May 2016 the party was renamed as the Alliance of Social Liberal Democrats.[12] On 7 October 2017, the party again changed its title to include the founder's name in preparation for the upcoming parliamentary elections, becoming the Party of Alenka Bratušek. The party's Secretary General Jernej Pavlič stated that the name was changed to improve name recognition.[13]
