The Kurdistan Communist Party/Iraq (Kurdish: حزبي شيوعى كوردستان / عيراق, Arabic: الحزب الشيوعي الكوردستاني / العراق) is a Kurdish political party, formed in 1993 when the Iraqi Communist Party branch in the Kurdish areas was formed into a separate party. The party is led by Kamal Shakir.
In both the January and December 2005 Iraqi legislative elections the party was part of the Democratic Patriotic Alliance of Kurdistan. The party has a women's wing, the Kurdistan Women's League, the leader of which Nahla Hussain al-Shaly was murdered in Kirkuk in 2008.
