The party was established on 24 June 2017 by the merger of the Party for Sustainable Development of Slovenia (TRS) and Initiative for Democratic Socialism (IDS).

The party is a successor of the left-wing electoral alliance, the United Left. In the first parliamentary elections in 2014, we succeeded in obtaining 6 seats in the national assembly, a result that we improved to 9 MPs in 2018. The Main focus of our struggle was anti-privatisation campaigns in the context of the financial crisis, improvement of minimum wage laws and workers' protection in cooperation with trade unions, anti-imperialism and opposition to NATO membership, as well as numerous actions for protection of the environment from local to state level.

Levica's most recent campaign is aimed at stopping a 780M euros investment in the military during the pandemic.

Upon joining, Violeta Tomić, Chairwoman of the Council of The Left, said:

"We in the Left consider international cooperation one of the most important tools in the promotion of progressive ideals. We are thus happy to join Progressive international as a platform of global progressive integration, cooperation and solidarity. This form of organisation is desperately needed in times of global menace of far-right and unbridled activities of multinational corporations."

Help us build the Movement

The Movement connects, supports, and organizes progressive forces around the world.

In just a few months since launch, the Movement has published over 20 statements from our members, drawing crucial attention to uprisings in Serbia and Belarus and denouncing moves to curtail democracy in Bolivia, Ecuador, and Guatemala.

With over 40 member organizations from more than 25 countries — including trade unions, parties, alliances, and associations, collectively representing millions of people — the Movement is fast becoming a truly planetary front. This work is only possible thanks to you.

Help us build this common front. Donate to the Movement.
