The Parti Socialiste also known as the Socialist Party or Social Democrats, was the most powerful left-wing political party in the Vannoisian Empire. The party is the main opponent to the right-wing Union pour un mouvement populaire. It grew out of the trade union movement and socialist political parties of the early nineteenth and late eighteenth centuries and has been described as a broad church; the party contains a diversity of ideological trends from strongly socialist, to more moderately social democratic.
As of 2016 it was the second largest party in the National Assembly behind the Union pour un mouvement populaire. The party was led from 1999 to 2006 by Prime Minister Maximilien Astier, who won just one election in that position before being removed by popular vote on 15 July, 2014, due to the ongoing Vannoisian Governmental Scandal of 2014.
The Party was founded in 1932 following the dissolution of les Communistes de Vannois and the original Socialist party by then-Emperor Francis III. It was created in Libéliard by the Socialist philosopher Arsène Flandin, and formed around the Lord Jean-Jacques Viermont, Count Migor. The party merged into Vannois d'Abord in 2017 after VP split from the party in mid-2016.
