Service Description

A party is an association of citizens that seeks to influence the political decision-making process throughout the Federal Republic of Germany or in a federal state on a permanent or long-term basis and to participate in the representation of the people in parliaments.

A party must, according to the overall picture of the actual circumstances, in particular

  • the size and strength of its organization
  • the number of its members and
  • according to its public image

The foundation of a new party is subject to federal legal requirements, about which the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) and the Federal Returning Officer provide information.
