Except CPSU and CCP what were the biggest communist parties of the world that time (1947-85) by membership?
I know 3rd was indonesian communist party before it crushed, with 2 mil. members.

Your data on the 3rd place is wrong. In SFRY, with the population of 24 million people, there were more than just 10% communist party members alone.

According to Wikipedia, it had about 2 million members which I find too small a figure.

However, this is a sort of a semi-official figure posted here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/League_of ... issolution

According to Wikipedia the Romanian Communist Party had 2.6 million members in 1976 and 3.3 million members by 1983.

By the late 1970s the Polish United Workers' Party had an estimated 3.5 million members.
