DKP leaves the European Left

The German Communist Party (DKP) agreed upon ending its observer status at the Party of the European Left (EL).

ICP, 1st March 2016

According to the soL new portal, The German Communist Party(DKP) declared that it has ended is observer status at the Party of European Left (EL) by a decision at the 21st Congress of DKP.

The reason of the termination of the observer status is said to be EL's approval of the EU system, which communists struggle to overcome. “EL had also approved a protective responsibility for the military interventions to countries violating human rights, in the past" said the decision.

"The EU has always been an imperialist entity form the beginning. Today imperialist leader countries are using the EU in their competition with US. Yet this union plays a role in sustaining the hegemony within Europe and securing the exploitation of the periphery countries."

said DKP leader Patrik Köbele in an interview at Die Welt.

DKP had joined EL as an observer as a CEC decision in 2005. In its latest congress last November Patrik Köbele and the CEC led by him were elected by majority vote. (See the link for the story on ICP)

We state that this decision has nothing to do with the ELP member or observer parties. The decision will neither improve relationships with those Communist and Workers' Parties in Europe who had never been close to the ELP, nor it will deteriorate the relations with the Communist Parties who are still members or observer members of the ELP. It has only to do with our place in that organization, and with its objectives and possibilities to enforce them in the imperialist European Union.
