Please note: On 30th April 2011 two parties, the National Conciliation Party (PCN) and the Christian Democratic Party (PDC) were both disbanded by the Supreme Court for failing to reach` the minimum level of votes in the 2004 presidential election. A 2005 decree allowed the two parties to continue, but the Supreme Court stated that the decree was unconstitutional. Both parties can stand again, but have to meet the qualifications of a new party. We have included the PDC in the list of parties because there is evidence of continued activity. The PCN does appear to have been disbanded despite having 11 members of the Legislative Assembly.
