Political Parties in Afghanistan

Published 7th February, 2011

Afghanistan does have political parties, some of which have been around for some time. However the current political climate in the country still sees a great deal of flux with parties merging, disappearing and new parties arising at the whim of tribal and other influential leaders.

For this reason we give below a list of some of the political parties but do not propose to give greater detail until the country has completed its current transitional flux.
