Hi Josef,

It depends on which country you want to set it up...However, here are a couple of guides which might be of some interest and help...

see url: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7963814.stm

I have never set up a political party myself, but have been a member of a number of UK ones over the years and once studied the subject for a while, including the law of incorporated and unincorporated associations. In the UK anyone can set up a political party or any kind of party without any formalities. It is just a question of inviting people who one thinks will support it, organising a meeting and if there is sufficient support for adopting a political programme, creating and adopting a constitution and creating an organisation which will represent the views, opinions and beliefs of the membership.


In the UK, one can even stand in elections for local councils, area councils, national governments, etc., without being registered as a party, as an independent. However, parties which register with the Electoral Commission can have the name of their party as well as the individual name of the candidate placed upon the ballot paper. Registered political parties have to comply with the law of the land, particularly on financial accountability, both internally and externally.

If I can be of any more help...let me know...:-).
