The party was founded in 1910. Its main leader and spokesman was Dr Emilio Frugoni, a prominent advocate of socialist ideas in Uruguay. Its central organ was the newspaper Germinal, later superseded by El Sol.
The party was a member of the Labour and Socialist International between 1932 and 1940. In 1951 it joined the Socialist International, which it later left in 1960, and rejoined it in 1999. In 2017 the party once again withdrew from the Socialist International and joined the Progressive Alliance.
It is currently led by Gonzalo Civila.
