Can government operate without parties

Question asked by: s11035598

Asked on: 05 May 2008

Well, practically governments are composed of parties, for instance in the UK you have the Labour and Conservatives (also a few tiny ones like the Liberal Democrats) and in the States you have Republicans and Democrats (are there any others over there?)

But parties in general are what form government. This is because one person can't do everything themselves in modern day, large and complex countries with the state having many things to manage, so parties are needed in order to do this.

Of course you could be a dictator but they have some notional party of supporters behind them even if that exact language isn't used to describe them!
