The Egyptian Communist Party (Arabic: الحزب الشيوعي المصري) is a political party in Egypt, formed in 1975 by a number of members of the former Egyptian Communist Party. Under the regimes of Presidents Anwar Sadat and Hosni Mubarak the new Communist Party faced state repression and was barred from running in elections. The party however continued to operate underground until the overthrow of Mubarak in 2011.[1] Despite having CPE members allegedly killed and imprisoned under Mubarak, the party have since been involved in mobilizing workers in 2011.[2]

The party is led by Salah Adli.[3]
