The Democratic Socialist Electoral League was a minor Australian political party that operated from 1998 until its voluntary deregistration in 2001. It supported a broadly socialist platform.


The Democratic Socialist Electoral League espoused a left-wing position on most issues, including privatisation, the environment, immigration and civil rights. The party also had a comprehensive preferencing arrangement, supporting the Greens and some other left-wing groups. It differentiated itself from the Greens by claiming that the latter had no clear economic policy. It supported Labor over the Liberal Party, and was particularly opposed to the rise of One Nation.

The party had links to the Marxist Democratic Socialist Perspective, which, after the DSEL's deregistration, contested elections as part of the Socialist Alliance.
