The New Communist Party of Yugoslavia (Serbian: Нова комунистичка партија Југославије, Nova Komunistička Partija Jugoslavije) (NKPJ) is a Marxist-Leninist party in Serbia registered as a citizens group.
The NKPJ was formed in 1990. Its General Secretary is Branko Kitanović (sr), a writer and a translator. The Party has a youth section, the League of Yugoslav Communist Youth (SKOJ) formed in 1992. The NKPJ follows the theories of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin and considers China, Vietnam, DPRK, Laos and Cuba socialist countries. The NKPJ is strongly against Titoism but is of the opinion that Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRJ) was a socialist country until 1990. The NKPJ's goal is the reunification of SFRJ.
The New Communist Party of Yugoslavia boycotted the last parliamentary elections in Serbia (January 21, 2006), because of its position that the electoral law violated the fundamental democratic principles and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 2010 the party was removed from the list of registered parties after failing to re-register under the new electoral law.
Due to the removal from the list of registered parties NKPJ decided to boycott the 2014 parliamentary election as well as all local elections  and not join any coalitions. They have been interrupting several meetings of other parties urging for boycott of the elections and claiming they are illegal.
The Young Communist League of Yugoslavia is the youth section of New Communist Party of Yugoslavia (NKPJ).
