The LPRP was established on 22 March 1955 by former members of the Indochinese Communist Party.

- Lao People's Revolutionary Party

However, the Comintern argued that the communist movement should be promoted in the whole of French Indochina (including Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam) rather than only in Vietnam, therefore it urged the Vietnamese Communist Party to transform itself into the Indochinese Communist Party.

- Indochinese Communist Party

A post-independence civil war began, which saw the communist resistance, supported by the Soviet Union, fight against the monarchy that later came under influence of military regimes supported by the United States.

- Laos

Four years later, Laotian members of the party founded the Lao People's Party.

- Indochinese Communist Party

During the First Indochina War, the Indochinese Communist Party formed the Pathet Lao independence organisation.
