The Peruvian Communist Party (Spanish: Partido Comunista Peruano, abbr. PCP) is a communist party in Peru that was founded in 1928 by José Carlos Mariátegui, under the name Socialist Party of Peru (Partido Socialista del Perú, PSP). The party changed its name in 1930. In contemporary Peruvian politics, the party is often referred to as the PCP (Unity), to distinguish it from other communist parties that have splintered from the original party, such as the Communist Party of Peru (Red Fatherland), the Communist Party of Peru (Marxist–Leninist) and the Communist Party of Peru (Shining Path).
The main political base of the PCP is currently located at Plaza Ramón Castilla, Lima and is led by Roberto de La Cruz Huamán. PCP publishes Unidad (Unity) and Nuestra Bandera (Our Flag).
