Albanian Party of Labor

Albanian Party of Labor
   The Albanian Party of Labor (Partia e Punës e Shqipërisë—PPSh) was inaugurated in 1941 as the Albanian Communist Party, changing its name seven years later. The PPSh was dominated by a steadfast adherence to democratic centralism, and the cult of personality constructed around untouchable leader Enver Hoxha. From 1978, courtesy of its ultra-orthodox approach to Marxism, the party offered ideological inspiration for Chinese Communist Party members loyal to the doctrines of Maoism. With the introduction of democracy in Albania, the party reinvented itself as the social democratic Socialist Party, and as of 2005 once again found itself forming a government.
