Communist Initiative

From ProleWiki, the proletarian encyclopedia

The Communist Initiative was an orthodox Marxist-Leninist organisation in Austria.

It was founded in 2004 as a faction of the Communist Party of Austria (KPÖ). It left the party in 2005. It was a candidate in the parliamentary elections in 2008 as a part of the alliance "The Left". At the elections of the Chamber of Labor in Vienna, it was a candidate in an alliance with the ATIGF (Austrian section of the Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist) as "KOMintern" and got 0.7% and one seat.

In 2013 the Communist Initiative disbanded and the Party of Labour of Austria was founded.
