the framer believed that political parties were factions. a faction is usually a dissatisfied group formed within a larger group. the framers thought that factions might fight to promote the interest of their own members. they feared that the strongest faction would control the government. in such a case, government would not protect equal rights and interests of all the people. instead the government would promote the interests of the party in power.
Factions or political parties came to be because they were against the expectations of the framers of the Constitution
Absolutely not. Parties are not even mentioned in the Constitution. Parties were a result of differing political views, though not mentioned in the constitution, they are not banned either.
The unexpected rise of political parties

Nobody outlawed political parties in the US. The framers of the Constitution did not anticipate their formation and Washington did not like them. Congress outlawed the American Communist Party while Eisenhower was President.
The Framers feared both the despotism of a monarch and the tyranny of a fixed popular majority. We have problems today understanding this fear because what they made has given way to the rise of political parties and the steady march toward a more inclusive and direct electorate.
They thought that government leaders would rise above personal interest in working gather for the sake of the will
The "framers" of the constitution did not intend for political parties to be created, however the "right vs. left" divide forced it. This same divide has been true throughout history since the dawn of civilization. Its not that democracy encourages political parties. Democracy just allows political parties to be formed, but often when one or two political parties share the vast majority of funds or power, they are able to outspend "third party" candidates by huge amounts and essentially control the entire government.

Washington stressed that the US would split itself apart and lose its sense of unity if everyone split off into political parties.
They detested them, for the most part, and believed that they would be the nation's downfall, even as they began to appear in the beginning of Washington's presidency.
The political arrangement preferred by the Framers was that of a republic, rather than a pure democracy, for example. Thomas Jefferson was one of the framers of the US Constitution.
Political parties usually have their basis in shared political ideologies and objectives. In the United States the two major political parties are the Republican and Democrat parties.
No. There is no mention of political parties in the Us Constitution. They did not exist in the US when the Constitution was written and I don't think most of the framers even thought about the possibility of their formation.
