The Aus Democratic Socialist Party (also known as the Australian Democratic Socialist Party), is a Political Party of Australia.

The Australian Democratic Socialist Party (ADSP) was formed after many on the eRepublik Australian Forums took part in the Political Compass Test which helped people find what political orientation and ideology they were.
After several members had completed the test and reported their results Cottus Arci joined those of like political mind together in a separate forum and we commenced discussions on the idea of forming our own party.
After much discussion, ideas and decisions, the Australian Democratic Socialist Party (ADSP) was officially formed on the 9th December 2008.
The ADSP found that another Party, the Australian Labour Party had been formed not long before us, however, the 2 Party's Ideals were very similar. With this in mind, discussions commenced regarding the 2 Parties merging and it was finally agreed that the merger would occur and took place officially on the 15th December 2008 at the Official Party President Elections when Cottus Arci became the Party's First Official President.
A New Direction
In December of 2009, the ADSP members voted to refresh its image, and change it to People's Democracy.
