The Communist Party of India (Marxist) is a far-left political party in India. It is one of the national parties of India. The party emerged from a split from the Communist Party of India in 1964. The CPI(M) was formed at the Seventh Congress of the Communist Party of India held in Calcutta from 31 October to 7 November 1964. As of 2018, CPI(M) is leading the state government in Kerala and has representation in the following Legislative assemblies in the states of Kerala, West Bengal, Tripura, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Odisha and Maharashtra. As of 2018, CPI(M) claimed to have 10,00,520 members. The highest body of the party is the Politburo. The CPIM, which was previously connoted as a national party due to its nationwide presence- incurred disastrous losses in the general elections of 2014 and 2019. In the 2019 general elections, not only was the CPIM reduced to single digits but also did it lose prominence and power in India's political map, with Kerala being an exception.
