The International of Left-wing Parties (ILP) was a political international containing parties of varying left-wing positions, for the purposes of preserving left-wing politics and making official statements on behalf of all members.
Plans for a socialist international started in February 2015 between Rilgar Ompastre, Joseph Puglisi, and Michael Ònff. The three discussed via Skype, planning a "paleosocialist" international which rejected New Left ideologies, which focus less on economic issues and more on social issues. Ònff and Ompastre criticized modern Left ideas, such as multiculturalism and identity politics, arguing they were divisive and detracted from labor interests. The project was eventually scrapped.
On 16 April 2015, a new Skype room was opened, initially containing Ompastre, Ònff, and Maxxwell I of Zelcia Royaume, with the purpose of planning a broader organization, which would accept most Left-wing parties, as defined by a Charter member parties would need to ratify. The new project was primarily driven by the concerns of the original organizers that the political Right had become unchecked in the MicroWiki Community and the Left needed unity in order to improve Left-leaning states.
On 28 May 2015, the ILP was officially established when the founding parties ratified the ILP Charter. The Assembly of Delegates continued to meet on Skype until until 4 July 2015, when it moved operations to the MicroWiki Forums.
