It left the party in 2005. It was a candidate in the parliamentary elections in 2008 as a part of the alliance "The Left". At the elections of the Chamber of Labor in Vienna, it was a candidate in an alliance with the ATIGF (Austrian section of the Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist) as "KOMintern" and got 0.7% and one seat. In 2013 the Communist Initiative disbanded and the Party of Labour of Austria was founded.
