Working Notes from the Session of the CPSU CC Presidium on 5 November 1956
(Re: Point VIII of Protocol No. 52)
On the Party in Hungary(1)
(Khrushchev, Zhukov, Molotov)
Today this question need not be considered. The old name (HWP) will not be suitable.
The name must be in accord with Marxist- Len. content.
Cde. Zhukov consult with secretaries of the provincial party committees.
Cde. Molotov it would be important to preserve the old name of the HWP.
Cde. Voroshilov through the CC we should hold a conference of the party aktiv and consult about the name of the party.
Cde. Malenkov we don't need to consider it right now.
Cde. Kaganovich consider it organizationally, in essence.
1 This brief session produced few results. The formal protocol for the session (in TsKhSD, F. 3, Op. 14, D. 73, L. 4) simply reads: Defer consideration of the matter.
