According to an article in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette (No. GN 28, 20 July 2011), the party is seeking to change its name to “The Communists.”
The party’s official abbreviation will remain the same.
The Alliance formed in 2009 and consists of several communist political parties and groups, including the Communist Party of Australia.
The Communist Party was founded in 1971 as the Socialist Party of Australia.
The Communist Alliance contested the seat of Sydney in the 2010 Federal Election.
