Confederate States of the Caribbean || Political Parties

Politics in the Confederacy has since 1940s been dominated by three major parties. The Conservative Party, representing isolationist social conservatism; the Progressive Party, representing interventionist, social progressive politics; and the Workers', representing labour and trade unions. As a presidential democracy without the capacity for coalition governments, any party with the highest number of votes can take power provided they control beyond a threshold of 5% of all votes. The Confederacy is not quite as much of a two-party system as some other American states however, as other parties have significant support and their aid is often high in demand in parliamentary sessions.

The Confederacy follows a proportional representation-based voting system, allowing for small parties to be more advantaged than they would be in most of the Americas given their FPTP system. Followed are a list of major and otherwise important parties active in the Federal Politics of the Confederate States of the Caribbean.
