It is generally a one-party system, although sometimes there are multiple parties, but with one dominant party which the other parties almost invariably support (i.e. the old East Germany). Political leaders rise up through the bureaucracy; elections offer little or no real choice. Internally the… party operates on the principle of democratic centralism, which means that public expressions of dissent from the party line are not allowed. The economy in a communist state is dominated by state-owned and state-run enterprises, although there is also generally some degree of social or co-operative ownership and of small-scale private ownership.. Contrary to popular belief, communism does not completely operate as a "evil, all-powerful government". A communist government operates well under poverty-stricken countries, providing equal rations of food and property to all. Essentially "take from the rich; give to the poor", a communist nation equalizes the class of all the citizens. Communism was popular during post-World War II times as most of the Asian countries involved struggled to rebuild. Famous examples included China, which became the People's Republic of China. China was struck by widespread poverty after the invasion by Japan in World War II. Operating under a communist government, it was able to reassure its population, and provide food, water, and shelter to every citizen. However, in countries such as the United States, communism would not operate well, as most citizens are well above poverty. The United States economy and stature as the world's superpower prevents it from needing a communist government like other nations, and allows it to continue its democratic and free enterprise policies. The United States despises communist nations (and vice-versa), as both do not understand the governments that best suit the other. (MORE)
A system of government where the government plans and controls the economy. Also all citizens are deemed equal. A communist state is a sovereign state with a form of government characterized by single-party rule or dominant-party rule of a communist party and a professed allegiance to a communist id…eology as the guiding principle of the state. In a true communist state you give what you can to the state for distribution, keeping only that required to satisfy your needs. In a socialist state, laughingly called communism, the state takes all your pigs and gives you back the ears. (MORE)
No. The government in Australia at present is Labor, democratically elected by the Australian people in 2007.
No. Japan is currently governed by the Democratic Party of Japan, a center-left/classical liberal party. But some countries that are communist are North Korea, Cuba, etc
Communism, as the name suggests, provides a communal pot of goods and services that everyone on the country has access to, despite social status. The Government's job, hypothetically, is to make sure all of the goods and resources are distributed evenly and that everyone who has put into the pot,… has access to the goods. Communist governments make sure that factory workers get their pensions farmers meet their quotas and that food is readily available wherever it may be needed. Communist leaders can either be appointed or elected, but their goal is to make sure that all members of society are reciting their goods and moneys fairly despite social stature. However, giving the government that much power has often led to the system breaking down for corrupt officials, and although not always, communist governments are often times absolute and ruthless when people start to fight them. Many communist governments view a protest as "mutiny or treason" The following nations have/had a sense of a communist regime in one way or another: China, Vietnam, Laos, North Korea, Albania, Yugoslavia (Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, Herzegovina), Czechoslovakia (Czech Republic and Slovakia), the USSR (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Azerbajian, Armenia, LAtvia, LIthuania, Estonia, Finland, Kazakhstan, Uzbeckstan, Tajikstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyikstan), Chile, Argentina, Peru, Grenada, Bulgaria, East Germany, Spain, Romania, Moldova, Libya, Angola, Congo Bra, Congo Kinsh, Papua New Guinea, Zimbabawe, Somalia, Venezuela, Cuba, Guatemala, and a few others have been infiltrated by communist for very short spans. Many other nations do have communist parties and sometimes do get elected within their democratic societies. (MORE)
They have appointed RaÃºl Castro as president as of 2008 February24. RaÃºl was acting president as of 2006 July 31, due to healthproblems with his brother Fidel. Yes Cuba is still communist.
They don't really chose a system. In the Soviet Union for example, there were constant power struggles. It started off with Lenin taking power through leading the revolution that put the Bolsheviks into power. Then after Lenin's death, Stalin won the power struggle against Trotsky. The rest went thr…ough power struggles as well. In Cuba, Castro has held power up until recent illnesses. Looks like it's going to the family now. (MORE)
Technically speaking, no one ever set up a communist state as Karl Marx defined communism. Vladimir Lenin, after the October Russian Revolution, set up a socialist state in Russia, expecting that at some time in the future it would become a true communist state. It was referred to as a communist sta…te because he had the name of the Bolshevik Party changed to the Communist Party in 1918. (MORE)

Any political party can inscribe itself to be electable. If they reach a certain percentage of votes in their internal elections (when Uruguayan citizens can vote) they can be electable then in the National Elections. Nowadays (December 29th, 2009) a Communist Party exists inside a political party a…nd that political party was an option in the National Elections that were held this year. However, they didn't reach 1% of the votes so they won't have any representation in the next parliament. (MORE)

The first communists were the first creatures that set up a cooperative environment with each other each being able to take advantage of the skills of the other in order to assist each other in survival. in fact communism was around long before man kind was. To avoid confusion the communism that has… been forced upon us by the dictators from the start of the 1900 of coarse is not communism but dictatorship. (MORE)
A personal view: We in UK are not, we are governed by the Civil Service, we may or may not vote to change or keep a political party in power, but the powers of the Civil Service are unchanged and unaffected by who we do or do not vote for. You might, as I suggest, tell me we have Democracy, well whe…n our votes have power to influence who has political control in the nation state, or even at the most basic level, then I might agree. Quite when the election of MPs was achieved from a meaninful representation of the populace, now that's not easy to judge. Women over 21 only got the vote in parity with men in 1928, over 30 in 1918. Prior to that I believe men had to be property owners at some time or other, so quite when all men over 21 had the vote is sometime in the 19th century.... looks like its 1884 for property owners, and 1918 for all men. But that still doesn't establish the first time, it depends on the criterion needed really. (MORE)
Yes, China is a communist country. Founded in 1921, the Communist Party of China has ruled all of mainland China since they won the Chinese Civil War against the Kuomintang.
A 'Communist government' is a self contradictory term. in Communism, there is no government. What you probably mean is 'socialist government'. There is no set title for a leader of a socialist government.
Depending on the country, election system etc. In the UK and America, we first hold local elections for our MP's (UK) called a General Election which is a 'Two Party System' (like America) even though we have the Liberal Democrats as a 3rd party but it's mostly the 'New' Labour Party and the Conserv…atives (Tories to UK).. The finally to the General Election is that the leader of the winning party is then invited to Buckingham Palace and asked by the Queen if they can form a Government, and if they can they will do but this is if they have an overall majority, if they don't have a big enough majority, a coalition may be formed between the second highest political party.. In America it's slighty different because it's the Presidential rac which takes centre stage like it is at the moment with Obama vs Mc Cann but it's all up to the 50 states to vote for their next President, then after a President has been inaugurated into office, they can choose of course their own Vice - President then the local elections for the State Representatives begin to represent their home states eg of this is Arnold Schwarzenegger - Governer of California.. If you need any other countries, please ask me. (MORE)
The president or prime minister in a communist government isusually ceremoniously elected. In communist regimes, there isusually one dominant political party which has a great deal ofcontrol over elections. The dominant party (usually "the CommunistParty") will appoint the candidate that fits with t…heir ideology.The candidate they chose is usually someone who has great power andinfluence in politics and society and is popular in the Communistparty. The Communist party then uses its power and influence in thegovernment to assure that their candidates wins the election. It isnot uncommon for elections in communist countries to be completelyrigged by the Communist party. Generally speaking, the secretary ofthe internal communist party has a great deal of influence and may,for all practical purposes, create a situation where he or shebecomes the only viable candidate to lead the government. It is important to note, however, that the few remaining communistgovernments in the world- China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos, andVietnam have their own constitution and set of laws, thus there wayof appointing a national leader is likely to vary depending on thecountry.

China, North Korea, and Cuba. . In addition, Vietnam and Laos are Communist countries. Most political scientist classify North Korea as "Communist-in-name-only"; functionally, they are a hereditary dictatorship run by a small oligarchy. China (mainland, aka People's Republic of China) is al…so not what is typically thought of as a Communist government. While they have many broad characteristics of (and originated as) a traditional Communist government, they are also a unique fusion with pure representative republic and traditional Chinese imperial government forms. So, while at first glance they are Communist, a closer look reveals a very unique (and very complex) form of government. (MORE)

It's actually an interesting question. The Chinese government claims to be communist, although their current policies bear little resemblance to communism as it used to be practiced in the USSR or other communist nations. China has a mixed economy, with both communist and capitalist elements. A more… accurate description of the Chinese government would be that it is a self-perpetuating oligarchy. (MORE)

There was no one. There was no historical example if a non-communist system switched to communist ever by elections. Fundamental of communism the one-party-only theory, so after the switch there are no real elections.

In ideal terms, communism is a system in which there is no private ownership; everyone gets the same amount of award. It was supposed to eliminate social classes and make everyone equal, but instead, some people stopped working due to a lack of it to earn, collapsing the economy.

Absolutely none. A true communist state, according to Karl Marx's definition, would not even have a government. As Marx put it, after capitalism was replaced by socialism, the society would gradually evolve into a true communist state. As it did so, all distinctions between social classes would d…isappear. As those disappeared the need for one class to repress the others would also disappear. Once society evolved into a single class of people there would no longer be a need for government to create laws to repress other people. Government, or state, would simply wither away and disappear. Today's so-called "communist" governments are not true communist at all. The Soviet Union was in some ways farther away from true communism than the capitalist states of the West because of the total repression of the citizens that that and other "communist" governments practice. If there is a "role of the government in communist states" it would actually be in socialist stage during the transition from socialism to communism. Immediately after the overthrow of capitalism, Marx stated a "dictatorship of the proletariat" would be needed in order to ensure that all vestiges of capitalism are wiped out. This "government" takes control of the means of production for the proletariat as a whole and keeps the country on the road to communism. As far as government's role in today's so-called communist states, it is simply to ensure that the country is run the way that the political group then in control of the country wants it to be run. As far as the economy of that country goes, the government becomes a central planner determining what is to be produced and what is to be supplied without regard to free market forces as in a capitalist state.

All major parties in Switzerland support a capitalist economy. Switzerland has a very democratic system of government. Switzerland is a confederation of 26 semi-independent cantons. A canton is equivalent to what is called a state in English-speaking federal countries. As many decisions as p…ossible are made at the cantonal level. Each canton has its own constitution, parliament, laws and court system. Most of the cantons were once independent countries, and in many ways continue to act as such. As well as regular elections, Switzerland has a form of "direct democracy" where any decision can be put to a referendum. A petition is started, signatures are collected and if enough signatures are collected there has to be a referendum which is binding. A referendum can be at the federal or cantonal level. Switzerland has a collective head of state, the seven-member Swiss Federal Council. The president is the presiding member of this council. Elected by the Federal Assembly for one year, the President of the Confederation chairs the meetings of the Federal Council and undertakes special representational duties. Primus inter pares, the President has no powers above the other Councillors and continues to head his or her department. Traditionally the duty rotates among the members in order of seniority and the previous year's Vice President becomes President. The official title is "President of the Confederation" (German: BundesprÃ¤sident(in), French: PrÃ©sident(e) de la ConfÃ©dÃ©ration, Italian: Presidente della Confederazione, Romansh: President(a) da la Confederaziun).

That depends on which communist government you are asking about,which you don't say and the period of time.
Whether or not an election is held is not determined by howcommunistic a government is. Some Communists believe in open elections, some Communists believein a single leader, and other Communists do not believe in anoperable government.
