|Split from||Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan|
Komala or Komalah (Kurdish: کومه له) is a Kurdish political party in Iran (see Iranian Kurdistan). The word Komele in Kurdish is derived from Komel (Society) and means "association". Komala is the Kurdish branch of the Communist Party of Iran.
In 1967, Komala was founded and struggled against the government and policies of Shah for 12 years until 1979. In 1983 Komala formed a political organization with other Iranian Marxist and socialist groups called the Communist Party of Iran.
Currently, Komala's spokesperson is Ebrahim Alizadeh, who is at the same time the first secretary of Komala.
