Merger

In 2005, the Labour Party merged with the governing Gibraltar Social Democrats, retaining the GSD name and leadership.[1] This move was deeply unpopular with many, especially within the GSD, and caused many high profile members to leave, including GSD Deputy Leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Keith Azopardi and executive member Nick Cruz, who both went on to form the Progressive Democratic Party in 2006.
