On thursday morning, Party and government leaders led by President Bounnhang Vorachit laid a wreath at the Monument of Unknown Soldiers on the occation of the 63rd anniversary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (22 Mar 1955-2018) to show respect and gratitude to the deeds and fearless spirit of Lao ancestors and warriors who sacrificed for the freedom of the nation and Lao people.
President Bounnhang and his delegation also visited Kaysone Phomvihane’s Museum to lay a flower bouquet at the foot of beloved Kaysone Phomvihane’s statue to respect for his devotion to leading a revolutionary war against the invation of foreign imperial powers to seize victory, bringing peace to the Lao multi-ethnic people.
The Lao People’s Revolutionary Party has its origins in the Communist Party of Indochina founded by Ho Chi Minh in 1930. The ICP was entirely Vietnamese at its inception but grew throughout French Indochina and was able to found a small “Lao section” in 1936.
On March 22, 1955, at its First Party Congress, the Laos’ People’s Party or Phak Pasason Lao was officially proclaimed. The First Party Congress was attended by 25 delegates representing a party membership of 300 to 400.
