Socialist Democracy Party (Sosyalist Demokrasi Partisi, SDP) is a left-socialist party in Turkey. Most of its members were formerly in an opposition grouping within ÖDP, named Sosyalist Eylem Platformu (Socialist Action Platform). They defended closer ties with pro-Kurdish DEHAP and radical left and campaigned against privatisation and European Union membership. Their views were seen "too conservative" by most ÖDP affiliates and they left the party in 2001.

In 2002, SDP was founded. They didn't participate in elections of 2002 and 2004 but they supported left-wing electoral alliances. In the summer of 2005, they announced a Sosyalist Forum for negotiations of a broader unification, which proved to be futile. At 2007 elections, they declared support for the independent candidates of Democratic Society Party. Akın Birdal who was elected to the Parliament in 2007 is the honorary chairman of SDP.

Following a major internal strife, a number of founding members, including Mihri Belli, a prestigious name of the Turkish left, resigned in 2008. In 2009, Filiz Koçali, the only female party chairperson of Turkey at that date, declared her resignation and the party activity continues for socialism.
