Political party governance

Political party governance

Under representative democracy the political party is the way people organize to choose representatives. The detailed choice of officers, candidates, and eligibility for membership, are political party governance issues.

Because many officers of the party itself are conflicted in such questions as a leadership race, the governance of a political party is a difficult matter. Strict protocols must apply to questions of nomination for candidacy, membership eligibility, and election and/or the removal of party officers, especially if they are seen to be favouring one candidate or another in a leadership race in an unfair way.

Under a one party system like in the Peoples Republic of China, the ruling party is governed by the top bosses who are answerable to no one.
