Communist Party of Albania (1991)
The Communist Party of Albania (in Albanian: Partia Komuniste e Shqipërisë, PKSH) is a communist, and anti-revisionist Marxist-Leninist, political party in Albania. The party was formed in 1991, as a split from the Albanian Party of Labour which converted itself into the Socialist Party of Albania. It upholds Enver Hoxha and Hoxhaism. The party was led by Hysni Milloshi until his death in 2012.
Nexhmije Hoxha is a member of the party.
In 1998, the PKSH became the first communist party post-1991 to legally register at the Electoral Commission.
In 2002, a fraction of PKSH split and merged into the refounded Albanian Party of Labour.
In the 2005 parliamentary elections, the party gained 8,901 votes (0.7%) on the proportional list.
In a 2006 unification congress, the Communist Party of Albania, Albanian Party of Labour and smaller communist parties merged in Communist Party of Albania. 300 members of these parties participated in this congress and Hysni Milloshi was the leader of the unified party.
PKSH publishes Zëri i së Vërtetës ('The Voice of Truth').
The youth wing of the party is known as Communist Youth of Albania.
