The Iraqi Communist Party (in Arabic: الحزب الشيوعي العراقي) is a leftist political party in Iraq. It was established in 1934.
The Iraqi Communist Party was involved in many of the most important national uprisings and demonstrations of the 1940s and 1950s. It suffered heavily from 1978 under the repressive regime of Saddam Hussein, but remained an important element of the Iraqi opposition, and was a vocal opponent of the United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after the Gulf War of 1991.
In 1993 the Kurdish branch of the party was transformed into a semi-autonomous party, the Kurdistan Communist Party.
