Montenegrin branch of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia
The League of Communists of Montenegro (Serbo-Croatian: Savez komunista Crne Gore, SKCG) was the Montenegrin branch of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia, the sole legal party of Yugoslavia from 1945 to 1990. Under a 1974 SFR Yugoslavia constitution, greater powers were devolved to the various republic level branches.
The league was originally known as the Communist Party of Montenegro (Serbo-Croatian: Komunistička partija Crne Gore, KPCG). In 1952, the Communist Party of Montenegro was renamed the League of Communists of Montenegro in line with the party's name change on the Yugoslav federal level.
During the early 1990s, the collapse of communism and growing ethnic tensions between the Yugoslav republics led to the federal party's breakup.
On June 22, 1991, the League's Montenegrin branch formally dissolved and its direct successor became the newly created Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS). In essence, the new party continued right where the old one left off, as its entire membership stayed the same.
