AKEL stands for Anorthotikon Komma Ergazemenou Laou.
The Progressive Party of the Working People - AKEL was created on April 14, 1941 and constitutes a continuation of the Communist Party of Cyprus (Koumounistiko Komma Kyprou - KKK) whose founding Conference was held on August 15th, 1926, in Limassol.
AKEL is a left wing party based on Marxist-Leninist principles, taking into account current international political and economic developments.
