United Communist Party (Netherlands)
|United Communist Party|
Verenigde Communistische Partij
|Official colours||Red Yellow|
The VCP broke away from the NCPN because of dissatisfaction with the centralistic command structure of the party, as well as disagreement about whether or not the party should follow a policy of compromise within the city council of Reiderland, in which the NCPN was then represented.
In the 2006 elections VCP got 707 votes in Scheemda (10%), but lost one of their two seats.
In 2009 the VCP won 1,138 votes (8.5%) and two seats in the new municipality of Oldambt.
Politically, the VCP is a straightforward Communist party and sees a communist society as its ultimate goal and Socialism only as a stage towards it, with the class struggle as the method to reach this goal. The party is organised along democratic centralist lines.
