Socialist Front, The
Barisan Sosialis
Registered: 1 September 2010
Symbol: Five-point star
Set up by former RP chairman Ng Teck Siong and WP candidate Chia Ti Lik, it bears no relation to Barisan although its name is the English translation of the once powerful party. Before the 2011 General Election, it was divided on whether to send candidates, contest under other party tickets or run as independents, causing its leaders to fall out and Lim to resign. After years of inactivity, Lim appeared to have returned to the party when he showed up alongside Chia in 2015 to confirm their non-participation in the coming GE.
