Political Party: Founding Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

A party is an association of citizens who want to influence the formation of political will and participate in the representation of the people in parliaments permanently or for a long time in the confederation or in a country. It must provide a sufficient assurance of the seriousness of that objective, in the light of the overall picture of the facts, in particular the size and strength of its organisation, the number of its members and its emergence in public. The creation of a new party takes place in accordance with federal law, about which the Federal Ministry of the Interior and the Federal Returning Officer inform.

Further information can be found on the website of the Federal Statistical Office (The Federal Returning Officer) and the Federal Ministry of the Interior.
