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 only sporadically on the island.[2] In general, except for the PCC, the other parties receive funds and support from organizations based in Miami, and connected to the anti-Communist organizations and agencies of the U.S. government, like USAID or through the American embassy in Havana. Their militants are few, and they are frequently part of several parties.

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