General

Political parties in the modern sense have existed in Nhoor since the late 19th century. Originally there were just two: the Monarchist Party (Monarcīa̦nhoch pw Cwstana) and the Opposition Party (Cwstana jan So̦rhicanhorej). The latter of the two was soon joined by various other opposition parties, such as the Workers' Party of the Dominion (Cwstana qo Onnubecāsa̦qo), the Party of Liberties (Cwstana qo Esaswnoqo), and the Severance Party (Cwstana qo Morhireqo). After the general elections of 1923, another party than the Monarchist Party became the largest one in parliament for the first time in Nhoor history. After the Opposition Party won the elections themselves with enough seats to form the government in 1970, they changed their name into Party of Agrarians and Fishermen (Cwstana qo Curhisorhanoqo s Jo̦qhuroqo), whereas the Severance Party was declared illegal in already in 1930 and operated through the more moderate Republican Party (Gerchrunw̦ch pw Cwstana).

After 1978

In 1978, the constitution was changed and the current form of government was adopted, which saw parliament elected indirectly by the provincial parliaments, which were each allocated a number of seats based on the number of inhabitants of their province. Initially there were only fourteen provinces; in the 1989 elections the number of seats per province was changed to make room for the new province of Īnōsy after Almorea's lease on that island had expired in 1983; although a province in its own right from that year, the provincial parliament of Īnōsy voted together with Orleqh in the elections of 1985. The transformation of the Zascheīd archipelago in two new provinces as of 2021 will cause another redistribution of seats as per the next parliamentary elections.

Since 1978, the following parties have entered parliament on one or more occasions. Political parties can contest the elections on the national level if they participate in at least one third of the provinces (5; from the next elections on, this will be 6 as the number of provinces has increased to seventeen in 2021) representing at least one third of the total amount of seats in the national parliament (67).
