The Communist Party of Belarus (Belarusian: Камуністы́чная па́ртыя Белару́сі, Kamunistychnaya Partyia Belarusi; Russian: Коммунистическая партия Белоруссии, Kommunisticheskaya Partiya Belorussii) is a political party in Belarus, that supports the government of president Alexander Lukashenko. It was created in 1996. The leader of the party is Tatsyana Holubeva.

The party suggested merging with the Party of Communists of Belarus (PKB) on July 15, 2006. While the Communist Party of Belarus is a pro-presidential party, the Party of Communists of Belarus is one of the major opposition parties in Belarus. According to Sergey Kalyakin, the chairman of the PKB, the so-called "re-unification" of the two parties was a plot designed to oust the opposition PKB.[2]

As a member of the world Communist movement, the CPB enjoys relations with other communist parties in the region and throughout the world to a much greater extent than the PKB, which many in the region have considered "pro-Western."

The KPB obtained 5.99% and 8 seats during the 13 and 17 October 2004 Belarus House of Representative election.
