Popular Unity Party (Portugal)


Popular Unity Party (Portugal)

Popular Unity Party (in Portuguese: "Partido de Unidade Popular") was a political party in Portugal. PUP was founded in December 1974 by the Mendes fraction of the Communist Party of Portugal (Marxist-Leninist).

After the 1975 elections PUP was renamed Portuguese Marxist-Leninist Committee ("Comité Marxista-Leninista Português").

In 1976 CMLP merged with the Portuguese Marxist-Leninist Communist Organization and the Organization for the Reconstruction of the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) to form the Portuguese Communist Party (Reconstructed).
