There are mainly three types of party systems. They are:

  • One-party system: Only one party is allowed to control and run the government. For example, in China, only the Communist Party is allowed to rule.
  • Two-party system: Only the two main parties have a serious chance of winning a majority of seats to form a government. The United States of America and the United Kingdom are examples of a two-party system.
  • Multi-party system: More than two parties have a reasonable chance of coming to power either on their own strength or in alliance with others. Thus in India, we have a multiparty system.

Today, America is a multi-party system. The Democratic Party and the Republican Party are the most powerful. Yet other parties, such as the Reform, Libertarian, Socialist, Natural Law, Constitution, and Green Parties can promote candidates in a presidential election.
