Socialist Popular Alliance Party The Socialist People's Alliance Party
: حزب التحالف الشعبي الإشتراكي
Hizb Al-Tahalof Al-Shaeby Al-Ishtiraky
) is a leftist
party in Egypt
formed shortly after the Egyptian Revolution of 2011
. Its membership comprises many leftist organisations, mainly former members of the Tagammu Party
(the only formal leftist party under Hosni Mubarak
's reign) who resigned, later joining the party after a split over the party's position on the November 2010 parliamentary elections.
The party has been officially recognized on 3 September 2011.
In November 2013, hundreds of members attempted to resign from the party over party elections as well as a lack of separation from the policies of the state; however, the resignations were rejected by party head Abdel Ghafar Shokr.
The former members created the Bread and Freedom Party
in late November 2013.
A 32-year-old member of the party named Shaimaa Sabagh was shot in the head and killed by police in Cairo on 24 January 2015.
