Social Democratic Party of Macedonia
|This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
the Republic of Macedonia
Established in 1990, the SDPM was the first political party to register in Macedonia, with Slavko Milosavlevski becoming its founding president. It contested the 1990 parliamentary elections, at a time when Macedonia was still part of Yugoslavia. It received 1.6% of the vote in the first round and 0.2 in the second, failing to win a seat. It also ran in alliance with the Union of Reform Forces in some areas, but the alliance failed to win a seat.
The SDPM did not contest the 1998 elections, but returned to run in the 2002 elections. However, the party received just 0.3% of the vote and failed to win a seat. The 2006 elections saw the party increase its vote share to 0.9%, but it remained seatless. In the 2008 elections its vote share fell to 0.65%, as the party again failed to win a seat. In the 2011 elections the party's vote share fell to just 0.2%. The 2014 elections saw it receive 0.4% of the vote, but it remained seatless.
