In 2001, Party for Socialist Power changed its name to Communist Party of Turkey (Türkiye Komünist Partisi, TKP) and Güler was elected as the chairman of TKP. In the 9th Congress, he quit this post in accordance with the congress decisions for rejuvenation and a political leap forward. 29-year-old Central Committee member Erkan Baş replaced him.
