List of political parties in Cuba

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Cuba

This article lists political parties in Cuba. No party is permitted to campaign or endorse candidates for election, including the Communist Party. Candidates are elected on an individual referendum basis without formal party involvement, though elected assemblies predominantly consist of members of the dominant party alongside non-affiliated candidates.[1]

As a result, political rallies by opposition parties occur sporadically on the island.[2]

Cuban law also stipulates that it is punishable to receive funds from a foreign government for purposes of a political organization.[3]
