Political Parties

A party is a registered association entered into the party register kept by the Ministry of Justice. Parties are non-profit associations whose main purpose is to influence public issues. One usually becomes a member through a local branch.

In Finland political parties have existed for a hundred years. Until 1969 their position was unofficial. Act on Political Parties (10/1969) enacted in that year changed this.
