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 general elections, have won and hold at least one MP seat in the Assembly. In the 2011 Local Government Elections, parliamentary parties are DP, SP, SMI, PJIU, HRUP, and ARP. The weight carried by these political parties in terms of electoral funds is considerable, for they hold 98% of the total funds.
