Hi.
I have a question concerning the American history, and I don't know if it's the right place or not. My question is about the political parties in America. Are the political parties part of the legislative branch?
Thank you in advance.

kunsusuki Are the political parties part of the legislative branch?
The Constitution of the United States defines the structure of the US government as being divided into three branches: the executive, the legislative and the judicial. It defines the roles, responsibilities, and offices in each branch and the balance of political power among them. Political parties are not mentioned at all in the constitution.

The political parties don't really belong in a branch. People in each branch of government are affiliated with different parties, but the parties are independent organizations that seek to put people in office.
