Greek Left ((ギリシア語:Ελληνική Αριστερά), Elliniki Aristera, abbreviated EAR) was a Greek leftwing political party.
It emerged, in January 1987, from the split in the Communist Party of Greece (Interior) into the Communist Party of Greece (Interior)-Renewing Left and the Greek Left. Its ideology was Eurocommunism.
In December 1988 Greek Left signed a common report with the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) about the current political situation.〔«Από το 12ο ως το 13ο Συνέδριο του ΚΚΕ - Ντοκουμέντα» ("From the 12th to the 13th Congress of KKE - Documents"), published by the Central Committee of the KKE, pp. 150-170〕 This was the first step in the creation of Synaspismos, a coalition of parties, in February 1989. The common report was written by Mimis Androulakis and Giannis Dragasakis of the KKE and Grigoris Giannaros and Dimitrios Papadimoulis of the Greek Left. It was published in ''Rizospastis'' on 8 December 1988.
Greek Left was the main power in Synaspismos, after the KKE.
Its leader was Leonidas Kyrkos and its general secretary, from 1989 to 1992, was Fotis Kouvelis.
The Greek Left participated with Synaspismos in three parliamentary elections, once in the local elections and once in the elections for the European Parliament in 1989. In 1992 it merged into Synaspismos when the latter transformed from a coalition to a single party.
