Formed on 2 June 1993 in Banja Luka, it served as one of the first democratic alternatives to nationalist government of Republika Srpska. After the signing of the Dayton Accord, the party became a vocal opponent of the government of Radovan Karadžić and the Serbian Democratic Party.
Its subsequent coalitions with the increasingly-nationalist Alliance of Independent Social Democrats and Democratic People's Alliance have, however, diminished its standing as a leftist and multi-ethnic party.
It only contests elections in Republika Srpska and the Brčko District, currently serving in the governing majority in the former. SP secured its second-ever seat in the House of Representatives at the 2018 general election.
