Left Socialists throw in the towel

VS – or the Left Socialist Party/Association – has decided to disband.

The Left Socialists (VS), who are part of the Red Green alliance of parties, have chosen to disband.

The decision, taken at an annual general meeting in Copenhagen yesterday, was passed by 14 votes to one, now merging its members with the Red Green Party.

The Red Green Group Chairman Per Clausen, who has been a member of the Left Socialists since 1971, says the Left Socialists no longer wished to be a party within a party, but to use their energies to strengthen the Red Greens.

“We don’t think there’s any point in keeping an association alive when there hasn’t been any activity of note for years,” Clausen says, adding the grouping wanted to signal that the Red Greens are where political discussions take place.

Clausen’s statement comes almost a year to the day after the Eastern High Court declared that his party had been dissolved in 1998 – something the Left Socialists denied at the time.

“Rumours of our death are greatly exaggerated,” the party said on its website, adding it had two MPs – Per Clausen and Finn Sørensen – and accusing the court of character assassination.

The Left Socialists were founded in 1967 as a split-off party from the Socialist People’s Party (SF). In 1989 it was one of the three groups that formed the Red Green Alliance, along with the Communist Party and the Socialist Workers Party. In 1998, the party chose to change its status from a party per se, and to become an association.

As a party, the Left Socialists were represented in Parliament with up to six seats between 1968 and 1987, apart from elections in 1971 and 1973.
