This article lists all political parties in Brunant. Brunant has a multi-party system; seven parties have seats in Congress. Due to the amount of parties receiving substantial support, it is next to impossible for one party to achieve a majority in either house of Congress, so coalitions are made between the various political parties, which usually includes either the Christian Democratic Union or the Social Democratic Party (or both), the two largest parties.

Like many European countries, Brunant has a high amount of small, regional and radical parties.

History of political partiesEdit

Political parties first sprung up in the mid-1850s as part of the democratic reforms under King Cristian I. Initially they were more like formal political coalitions than parties, only being cemented as such following the Liberal Revolution in 1881.

The two big parties from the 1850s to the mid-20th century were the Liberal Party and the White Party. Both dominated the political sphere until the 1930s and remained significant until their demises or reforms after World War II.
