The New Communist Party of Yugoslavia (Serbian: Нова комунистичка партија Југославије/Nova Komunistička Partija Jugoslavije (NKPJ)) is a communist party in Serbia The NKPJ was formed in 1990. Its General Secretary is Branko Kitanović, 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 Cuba and North Korea to be socialist states while considering Laos, China, and Vietnam to have socialist leanings. The NKPJ is strongly against Titoism but is of the opinion that Tito's Yugoslavia was a socialist state until 1990. The NKPJ's goal is the reunification of Yugoslavia as a communist state.
The party boycotted the 2007 parliamentary election, because of its position that the electoral law violated 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 interrupted several meetings of other political parties urging for boycott of the elections and claiming they were illegal.
