There are four kinds of political parties, democratic parties, non-democratic parties, ideological parties & nonideological democratic parties. Democratic parties are open to anyone, and are not ideological. Nondemocratic parties are ideological highly unified and organized, found in counties of dictatorships, ideological parties are those that adhere to an ideology. Nonideological democratic parties are characterized as alliances of many different ideologies but some common interest, not structured or unified.
In a parliamentary form of government, political parties do not run for prime minister and the office of prime minister is not contested directly. Canada has approximately 20 registered political parties, which tend to cover the political spectrum, but only four political parties have elected members to the House of Commons in recent years.
