The Peruvian Communist Party (in Spanish: Partido Comunista Peruano) is a communist party in Peru. It was founded in 1928 by José Carlos Mariátegui, under the name Partido Socialista del Perú (Socialist Party of Peru). In 1930 the name was changed to PCP. PCP is often identified as PCP [Unidad], to separate it from the Communist Party of Peru.
The main political base of the PCP is currently located at Plaza Ramón Castilla, Lima and is led by Roberto De La Cruz Huama. PCP publishes Unidad (Unity) and Nuestra Bandera (Our Flag).
