Communist Labour Party of Turkey/Leninist (in Turkish: Türkiye Komünist Emek Partisi/Leninist) is an illegal communist party in Turkey. TKEP/L was founded on September 1, 1990, following a split in the Communist Labour Party of Turkey (TKEP).

Whereas TKEP had started orientating itself towards legal work, TKEP/L wanted to continue armed struggle. It formed an armed wing, the Leninist Guerrilla Units (Leninist Gerila Birliği). LGB carries out occasional attacks, but does not engage in regular guerrilla warfare. The latest major action by LGB was on December 19, 2000 when LGB attacked a MHP party office in Istanbul. One MHP member was killed and three injured. The attack was vengeance for the killing of two TKEP/L prisoners.

TKEP/L has an organization inside the Turkish prisons, and TKEP/L prisoners have taken part in death fasts mobilized by various revolutionary groups.

The youth wing of TKEP/L is called 13 March Young Communist League (13 Mart Genç Komünistler Birliği).
