The Communist Party of Georgia (Georgian: საქართველოს კომუნისტური პარტია; Russian: Коммунистическая партия Грузии) was the founding and ruling political party of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic.

Georgia was incorporated into the Soviet Union as the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic after 25 February 1921 when the Red Army entered its capital Tbilisi and installed a communist government led by Georgian Bolshevik Filipp Makharadze. After the 1924 August Uprising in Georgia the country was incorporated into the Transcaucasian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic until 1936. During its period as a Soviet Socialist Republic it was ruled by the First Secretary of the Georgian Communist Party including; Samson Mamulia, Lavrentiy Beria, Candide Charkviani, Vasil Mzhavanadze and Eduard Shevardnadze.[1]

On August 26, 1991, by the decision of the Georgian parliament, the Communist Party was banned.[2] Its political descendant is the Communist Party of Georgia which was formed in 1992.
