What Is a Political Party?

According to Britannica, political parties emerged in their contemporary form in Europe and the United States in the nineteenth century, along with the electoral and parliamentary systems, which evolved in tandem with parties. It is described as a collection of people who have banded together to gain and wield political power. In a more simple definition, a political party is a group of like-minded people that band together to run for office and control the government.

The main aim of a political party is to have its party candidate contest and win elections. There are three types of political parties, which are;

  • Ideological parties
  • Class parties and
  • Mass parties.

Most of the political parties always have party rivals or anti-parties and this makes it more like a competition and struggles for power.

Political parties also have their functions in society; socializing the people and educating the masses is part of their functions.

The kind and structure of the Nigerian system allow for a multiparty system, yet it does not allow for a single party to run for any election without opposition. This is why the list of political parties in Nigeria is far too long.

So, below is a list of all Nigerian political parties that I have compiled for you.
