Why did political parties form during George Washington's presidency?
George Washington was the first president and the Constitution that formed the United States was only 8 years old. Washington was a great hero who won the revolution and helped draw up the Constitution. People were willing to let him make the decisions. However, when he left office, diverse ideas about the direction of the US government began to emerge and so people started forming parties to elect the candidates that favored their views.
