A political party is a key component of the democratization process. Political parties can equally be abused by the political system, members and environmental structures within which the party is situated. This study investigates the understanding of the political party, so as to correctly review multipartism, democracy and electioneering in Kenya. It purposes was to locate the function of political parties in democratic governance, examine the problems encountered by political parties in the process of building and sustaining competitive political systems and look back at the conditions that have led to a resurgence of multiparty democracy.
