Chilean Socialist Party (1987–1990)

The Chilean Socialist Party (Spanish: el Partido Socialista Chileno (PSCH)) was a political party in Chile, that self-identified as left-wing and which existed legally from 1988 to 1990. It has been claimed that it was formed as a tool for gathering support for the Pinochet dictatorship during its last years; the party used the traditional logo of the Socialist Party of Chile, a party then illegal.[1] The leader of the party – Juan Carlos Moraga – has denied he formed the party to defend the dictatorship.[2]

The party has been characterized as a "political Frankenstein" and a puerile attempt.[3]
