The Socialist Party (Serbian: Социјалистичка Партија/Socijalistička Partija) is a social democratic political party in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The party was formed on 2 June 1993 in Banja Luka, 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.[1]
