Abstract:The present article deals with the theory of Afro-Marxist parties (AMP), based on the example of the Working Party of Ethiopia (WPE). The author proposes a new three member typology of the formation of AMP, namely (1) differentiation of mass Revolutionary Democratic parties, (2) unification of various Marxist -Leninist and the Revolutionary Democratic groups, and (3) unification of revolutionary Marxists and democrats accepting scientific socialism. The history of the WPE in comparison with the other AMP (MPLA-PT, FRELIMO, PCT and PRPB) is all the more interesting because Ethiopia's revolutionaries attempted to establish its revolutionary avant-garde in two ways. While the first attempt (unification of the various Marxist-Leninist revolutionary and democratic groups) ended unsuccessfully, the WPE was founded by unification of revolutionary Marxists and democrats accepting scientific socialism. The article examines in detail both variants of WPE origin, including the causes of the initial failure and the decision based on the unification of individuals. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum.
