The parliamentary parties are highly important subjects in the context of the Electoral Funds and Expenses. As such they benefit from public funds, and at the same time they can draw on the funds collected over the years. Parliamentary parties are considered the ones that, in the previous parliamentary elections, have won and hold at least one MP seat in the Assembly.

In the 2009 Parliamentary Elections, parliamentary parties are DP, SP, SMI, PJIU, RP, SDP, AEP, DA, HRUP, DCP, SDY, and LDU. The weight carried by these political parties in terms of electoral funds is considerable, for in the 2009 electoral campaign they held 91.2% of the total funds.

As indicated by the data, the Demo-Christian Party in its financial sheets has declared 0 Leks funding received from the state budget. However, this political party is entitled to automatically benefiting public funding from the state budget, in view of it being a parliamentary party. It is unclear whether this is a case of the electoral subject's failure to report any collected funds, or whether in utter violation of the law this political party has received zero funding from the Public Funds. In either case, a serious violation of the law has occurred in this case.
