History

MLKP was formed in September 1994, through the unification of Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist - Hareketi (TKP/ML-Hareketi) and Communist Workers Movement of Turkey (TKİH). TKP/ML-Hareketi was the larger of the two. Both groups came from the pro-Albanian camp. The unity process of negotiations between the groups had started in 1989. Initially MLKP called itself 'MLKP-Kuruluş' (MLKP-Foundation).

(TKP/ML (YİÖ)) merged into the party, and the name was changed to MLKP.

Later the same year a split occur, and the Communist Party - Build-up Organization (KP-İÖ) is formed.
