The Party of Labour of Albania (PPSH), sometimes referred to as the Albanian Workers’ Party (AWP), was the ruling and sole legal party of Albania during the communist period (1945-1991). It was founded on 8 November 1941 as the Communist Party of Albania but changed its name in 1948. The party was dissolved on 13 June 1991 and succeeded by the Socialist Party of Albania. For most of its existence, the party was dominated by its First Secretary, Enver Hoxha, who was also the de facto leader of Albania.
