Spanish Communist Workers' Party (1921)


Spanish Communist Workers' Party (1921)

Partido Comunista Obrero Español ("Spanish Communist Workers' Party") was the name of a communist party founded on April 13 1921 by the "terceristas", who had been trying to persuade the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) to join the Comintern. When the PSOE Congress voted to join the Vienna International and refused Bolshevism, the "terceristas" broke away.

A new Communist Party of Spain was founded on November 14 1921 through an act of merger of Partido Comunista Español and Partido Comunista Obrero Español. The unified PCE soon adhered to the Comintern.

Later, in 1973 a group led by Enrique Líster broke away from PCE and formed a new party with the name Spanish Communist Workers Party.
