The Alliance of Independent Social Democrats (Serbian: Савез независних социјалдемократа (СНСД), Savez nezavisnih socijaldemokrata, SNSD) is a Serb political party in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Its president, Milorad Dodik, is the President of the Republika Srpska.

History

The party grew out of the Independent Members of Parliament Caucus of the National Assembly of the Republic of Srpska to become the Party of Independent Social Democrats. In December 1999 Social Liberal Party of Republic of Srpska merged into the Party of Independent Social Democrats. After local elections 2000 Nikola Špirić's Democratic party for Banjaluka and Krajina merged into it too. In 2002, it united with the Democratic Socialist Party,[2] a splinter party of the Socialist Party of Republika Srpska. After the unification, the party changed its name to Alliance of Independent Social Democrats. In August 2002 the New Labour Party of Republika Srpska merged into the Alliance of Independent Social Democrats.

The SNSD was suspended from Socialist International in 2011 for continuing to "espouse a nationalist and extremist" line.[3] It was later expelled on 4 September 2012.[4]
