Party of the Communists of Catalonia


Party of the Communists of Catalonia

, chairman of PSUC and leader of the pro-Soviet section, had been expelled from PSUC, accused of fractional activities. When PCC was constituted Ardiaca was elected chairman of the new party.

In 1984 PCC merged into the Communist Party (later renamed the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain, PCPE), and it became its regional wing in Catalonia. However, the party soon broke the bonds to PCPE and reconstructed itself as an independent party. Instead PCPE formed a new Catalan branch, the Communist Party of the Catalan People ("Partit Comunista del Poble Català").

In 1987 PCC took part in the formation of Initiative for Catalonia (IC), a broad coalition of leftwing parties led by PSUC. In 1989 it left IC. In the 1993 elections it contested on IC lists as part of the electoral coalition of IC-Greens. In 1998 PCC and PSUC viu formed the United and Alternative Left (EUiA), which became the new Catalan referent of the Spanish United Left (IU) following the break between IU and IC. PCC is the largest party inside EUiA.

The main organ of PCC is "Avant". Every year the party holds a festival for its newspaper, "Festa d'Avant". The theoretical organ of PCC is "Realitat".

The youth wing of PCC is the Collectives of Young Communists - Communist Youth ("Col·lectius de Joves Comunistes - Joventut Comunista").
