THE Socialist Party of Malaysia (PSM) is holding its 20th Annual National Congress on 13-15 July 2018. PSM has been consistently putting its efforts in building a left alternative for Malaysia, and defending the people from the savage attacks of capitalism through continuous organisation and mobilization of the grassroots masses. Its commitment is to build people’s power from below to fight for Socialism.

The recently concluded general elections in Malaysia witnessed a regime change at the Federal level through ballot boxes for the first time in the history of Malaysia. The shifting of power to a new coalition of political forces has opened up democratic spaces for progressive politics, yet there are new challenges awaiting the people.

PSM participated in the general election with more candidates compared with previous elections, but it did not manage to win any seat at the Federal as well as state level. Anyhow, we hope, these electoral setbacks will not hinder its effort to build socialist alternative in Malaysia. PSM has resolved to continue to organise from below to fight for a more democratic, equitable, just and emancipative society.

PSM is also continuing to build its relationship with left-wing organisations worldwide in order to strengthen the struggle against global capitalism.

The Central Committee of the CPI(ML)Red Star extends revolutionary fraternal greetings to the 20th Annual National Congress of the PSM and hope it shall be completed successfully. 

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
