States with restrictions on political parties

Some states have laws against some types of ideologies that parties are not allowed to follow. Though it exists more of these, these are a few of them:

  • Afghanistan - the American puppet regime have banned to form political parties breaking the Sharia laws in that country.[citation needed]
  • Iran - all candidates must be approved by a Shiite cabal.
  • Israel - only parties that recognize the right of Israel to exist are allowed to participate in elections, or negotiations.
  • South Korea - parties supporting the North Korean government are banned.
  • United States of America - the national, or state-wide, character of most elections strongly handicap candidates from any minority party.[2] Only candidates of the Democratic Party and the Republican Party have a reasonable chance of winning the majority of the votes in an election resulting in a de facto two-party state.[3]
