  USSR: Communist Party: Politburo - Archontology.org
The 28th congress of the Communist Party decreed that the Politburo will include a representative of each constituent republic of the Soviet Union and that all its members will be equal in their rights.
According to the new regulations, whenever a first secretary of the party organization of a constituent republic was dismissed, his successor had to enter the Politburo at the next Central Committee plenum [3].
Successors of Gumbaridze (Georgian Communist party), Pogosyan (Armenian Communist party) and Polozkov (Communist party of the Russian SFSR) were never elected to the Politburo.

  Communist Party of the Soviet Union - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In theory, supreme power in the party was invested in the Party Congress, however, in practice the power structure became reversed and, particularly after the death of Lenin, supreme power became the domain of the General Secretary.
This was both an attempt to "proletarianize" the party and an attempt by Stalin to strengthen his base by outnumbering the Old Bolsheviks and reducing their influence in the party.
In other republics, communists established the Armenian Communist Party, Communist Party of Azerbaijan, Party of Communists of Kyrgyzstan, Communist Party of Ukraine, Communist Party of Belarus, Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova, Communist Party of Kazakhstan and the Communist Party of Tajikistan.

Communist Parties first started to be widely established across the world in the early 20th century, after the creation of the Communist International by the Russian Bolsheviks.
Many other Communist parties, especially in Europe, were created in the 1910s and 1920s as the result of factional splits within most of the socialist parties that existed at the time.
The Communist Party of the United States was considered within the political mainstream during the 1930s and 1940s, but the advent of the Cold War led to McCarthyism, a vigorous anti-Communist political repression movement in America during the 1950s which effectively marginalized the American Communist Party.

 Bibliography on Party Politics in USSR, 1950-1962
In brief, the literature on party politics in the Soviet Union was abundant, and the problem for the indexers was one of selecting rather than locating material for the file.
Similarly, there are frequent discussions of "party workers and activists" (code 330) owing to the high degree of activity shown by party members, who are apt to lose their membership if they do not work for the party.
Party officials stand in third place among the contributors, which conforms to the observation that many of the items in the file are government documents.

The main obstacle to the socialist perspective in Albania is represented by the Socialist Party.
The Communist Party of Albania is rapidly developing, but one must consider that in the last years it has been in a state of complete illegality and subject to fascist repression; recently two members of the Central Committee were condemned to three and a half years in prison for the simple possession of political documents.
The Communist Party of Albania, which held its Congress in the summer of 1996, follows the general line outlined by the great Marxist-Leninist Enver Hoxha, the line of revolution for socialism, and with this aim it calls to the struggle all the patriotic forces which are fighting for liberty, independence and sovereignty.

 EurasiaNet Eurasia Insight - Play President of the (Defunct) Communist Party of the USSR for a Day! Part I
Even before the outbreak of a civil war in 1992, visits by foreigners to Abkhazia were discouraged -- the primary reason being the region was home during the Soviet era to several military and research facilities, including a unique institute where they (allegedly) tested various hideous diseases on monkeys and other primates.
Abkhazia was also known as a part of the Soviet Riviera, a place where the communist elite came to play, either frying hide on the pebble beaches of the Black Sea, plucking fruit from the low-land orchards or meandering through the towering mountains, cut by dozens of blue-ribbon trout streams and roaring rivers.
Happily, the main road is generally safe, the war having been relegated to visual memory to the left and right: scores--nay, hundreds--of partially or wholly burnt out buildings, many of which appear to have been quite pleasant before getting whacked with a GRAD missile or blast of a T-72 tank.
