The Communist Alternative Party (Partito di Alternativa Comunista, PdAC) is a communist political party in Italy. Its leader and founder is Francesco Ricci.

History[edit]

In April 2006 some members of Communist Project, a trotskyist faction within the Communist Refoundation Party (PRC), left the party and launched the PdAC, which was officially founded on 7 January 2007. In June 2006, the Communist Project itself left the PRC under the new name of Communist Workers' Party.

At the 2008 general election the party, that candidated Fabiana Stefanoni as Prime Minister of Italy,[1] obtained only 1,993 preferences and the 0.01% of the vote for the Chamber of Deputies (the party presented its list in the only circumscription "Lazio 2").

At the 2013 general election the party, with Adriano Lotito as candidated, presented its list in the only Apulia and it obtained 5,196 preferences and the 0.02% of the vote for the Chamber and 5,176 preferences and the 0.01% of the vote for the Senate.
