Communist Party of Ecuador
Partido Comunista del Ecuador
|Winston Alarcón Elizalde
|Juventud Comunista del Ecuador
The Ecuadorian Socialist Party split in 1931 over the issue of joining the Third International, and the newly formed PCE decided to join the Comintern while the PSE did not. The PCE formed an alliance with the Ecuadorian Indigenous Federation formed in 1944.
The PCE faced conflict following Khrushchev's Secret Speech in 1956. It endorsed armed revolution at its Congress in 1962 but expelled members in 1964 who tried to form a guerrilla force. The PCE continued its alignment with the Soviet Union and purged members who supported the CPC, leading them to create the Marxist–Leninist Communist Party of Ecuador.
