Bulgarian Communist Party


Bulgarian Communist Party
   Having been created in 1919, the Bulgarian Communist Party (Balgarska Komunisticeska Partija—BKP) held office from 1944 until the collapse of communism in Bulgaria in 1989/90. Under its uncompromising leader Vulko Chervenkov, the BKP embraced Stalinism. From 1954 to 1989 the tutelage of Todor Zhivkov saw the party remain close to the Soviet Union and mirror the policies of Nikita Khrushchev, Leonid Brezhnev and Mikhail Gorbachev accordingly. By 1990 the BKP had become as obsolete as the communist system surrounding it, and re-formed as the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP). A splinter faction retained the BKP name and now forms part of the Coalition For Bulgaria alliance, victorious in the general election of June 2005.
