The Socialist Unity Party of Germany (German: Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands, SED), built up in April 1946, was the overseeing Marxist– Leninist[2] political gathering of the German Democratic Republic from the nation's establishment in October 1949 until the point that it was broken up after the Peaceful Revolution in 1989. 

The GDR was a one-party state[3] however other institutional mainstream front gatherings were allowed to exist in collusion with the SED, these gatherings being the Christian Democratic Union, the Liberal Democratic Party, the Democratic Farmers' Party, and the National Democratic Party. The SED made the educating of Marxism-Leninism and the Russian dialect necessary in schools.[4] In the 1980s, the SED rejected the progression strategies of Soviet pioneer Mikhail Gorbachev, for example, perestroika and glasnost, which would prompt the GDR's detachment from the rebuilding USSR and the gathering's destruction in the fall of 1989. 

The gathering's overwhelming figure from 1950 to 1971, and successful pioneer of East Germany, was Walter Ulbricht. In 1953, an uprising against the Party was met with brutal concealment by the Ministry of State Security and the Soviet Army. In 1971, Ulbricht was prevailing by Erich Honecker who managed a steady period in the advancement of the GDR until the point when he was compelled to advance down amid the 1989 upset. The gathering's last pioneer, Egon Krenz, was unsuccessful in his endeavor to hold the SED's hang on political administration of the GDR and was detained after German reunification. 

The SED's for some time stifled change wing assumed control over the gathering in the fall of 1989. With expectations of changing its picture, on 16 December it renamed itself the Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS), surrendering Marxism– Leninism and turning into a standard popularity based communist gathering. It got 16.4% of the vote in the 1990 parliamentary decisions. In 2007, the PDS converged with Labor and Social Justice (WASG) into The Left (Die Linke), the fifth biggest gathering in the German parliament following the 2017 government race.
