The party chairman was Werner Schleese. He resigned in April 2006. The current chairman is Dieter Rolle.
The KPD publishes a monthly newspaper, Die Rote Fahne (The Red Flag). The youth wing is known as Kommunistische Jugendverband Deutschlands (Young Communist League of Germany), which was founded 2002.
Ahead of the 2005 Bundestag elections, the party unsuccessfully appealed for an electoral union with the German Communist Party (DKP) and the Left Party. This provoked a split, resulting in the formation of the Communist Party of Germany (Bolshevik), which disbanded itself in 2011. The KPD's line can be described as Stalinist, with some influence from North Korean Juche and Songun doctrines, which are enthusiastically supported by the organisation.
The party is preparing to contest the Bundestag elections in September 2013.
