Political parties are illegal in the state of Kuwait. They have not been legalized since independence in 1961. Nonetheless, the constitution itself does not prohibit parties.

Candidates for election (e.g., to the National Assembly of Kuwait) stand in a personal capacity. In practice, however, several political groups act as de facto parties:

The Kuwaiti Democratic Forum
The National Democratic Alliance
The Popular Action Bloc
The Justice and Peace Alliance
Hadas
The Kuwaiti Ba'ath Party
The National Islamic Alliance
The Islamic Salafi Alliance
