Tunisian Communist Party (Arabic: الحزب الشيوعي التونسي al-Ḥizb ash-Shuyū‘ī at-Tūnisī ; French: Parti communiste tunisien) was a political party in Tunisia. PCT was founded in 1934, as the Tunisian Federation of the French Communist Party and was later converted into an independent organization. The party was banned by the Vichy regime in 1939 but, in 1943, it was able to operate legally again. It was banned again in 1962 and legalized in 1981. In April 1993, PCT abandoned communism and changed its name to Ettajdid Movement.
