ABSTRACT
The article examines the implications of a democratic manifesto signed by Georges Marchais, secretary of the French Communist Party, and Italian Communist leader Enrico Berlinguer, as of March 2006. The French Communist Party has always been a pillar of Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy and fidelity to the Russian government. The manifesto was signed after a visit to Moscow by Marchais with the party's chief liaison officer, Jean Kanapa, in autumn 1975. It is speculated that the move was approved by the Russian government since Kanapa is one its important links to the French Communist Party. Marchais presented the new program of democratic and national communism under the French colors during his party's congress in Paris in February 1976.
