Paraguayan Communist Party (in Spanish: Partido Comunista Paraguayo) is a communist political party in Paraguay. PCP was founded on February 19, 1928. Later it was recognized as a section of the Communist International. It was brutally suppressed during the military regimes of the country. It gained legality for a brief period in 1936 and then again in 1946-1947. After the fall of the Alfredo Stroessner regime the party re-emerged as a legal party.
PCP was a founding member of United Left (IU) in 2002, but later it withdrew in 2003. However a fraction of PCP, Movimiento por la Recuperación Democrática del Partido Comunista Paraguayo, chose to continue to work within IU. The withdrawal was motivated by differences over electoral strategy and candidature.
PCP publishes Adelante (Forward).
