Parti Liberal Sosialis
Founded: 5 February 1956
Registered: 24 May 1961
Dissolved: 10 September 1963
Symbol: Torch & hand
A merger of PP with many lawyers and DP with many wealthy businessmen to consolidate the elite's position after a poor showing in the 1955 General Election. Despite becoming the largest and most resourceful party after merging, its political fortunes remained dull. In 1958, several batches of members left to establish SPA along with former members of LF and WP. After the 1959 polls, more crossed over to SPA. Before the 1963 GE, it was dissolved by its remnant members led by Mrs Felice Leon-Soh. Some of them stood as independent candidates in that GE without success.
