The Communist Party of Luxembourg (Luxembourgish: Kommunistesch Partei Ltzebuerg, French: Parti Communiste Luxembourgeois, German: Kommunistische Partei Luxemburg), abbreviated to KPL or PCL, is a political party in Luxembourg.

Ali Ruckert is the current chairman of the party.


Founded on 2 January 1921 in the town of Niederkorn, the KPL was launched, making it one of the oldest parties in Luxembourg.

Following the end of the Second World War, the party joined the National Union Government (1945 – 7). Its first minister was Charles Marx. After Marx's death, in a car accident in 1946, he was replaced by Dominique Urbany. However, after the death of the leader of the LSAP, the coalition collapsed. With the principle of an all-inclusive government gone, the KPL was excluded from the next government, and never returned another member to the cabinet.

In 1964, the United States State Department estimated the party membership to be approximately 500.[1] In legislative elections held in the same year, the party registered 12.4% of the vote, and won 5 of the Chamber of Deputies' 56 seats. The party's representation in the Chamber peaked at the following election, with six deputies, but fell, until the KPL lost its last remaining deputy in 1994.

In 1999, many party members were co-founders of the Left (Luxembourgish: Di Lnk). Accordingly KPL members ran on the Di Lnk lists in the 1999 and 2000 elections and no separate KPL lists existed. After disputes between leading KPL members and a majority within Di Lnk shortly before the 2004 elections the party again ran separate lists. A number of Di Lnk members were subsequently expelled from the Communist Party.
