Summary/Abstract: This report does not analyse the whole range of implications of parties and elections relationship and impact on political representation and constitutional government but concentrates on comparative constitutional and paraconstitutional interrelationship between parties and elections and of the international standards on the role of parties and elections to the representative government as provided in mainly the Venice commission documents. To avoid redundancy by repetition and the situation when my comparison attempts of the emerging national models and best practices would be tantamount of bringing water into a well I will limit my which should be considered as a part of the whole treatment of the issue by the speakers of the present panel. My report is based on the international and especially European standards established mostly in the soft law instruments of the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe and OCSE ODIHR. Without any doubt issues of parties and elections relationship and its impact on political pluralism, inter party and intraparty democracy in comparative perspective deserve special attention but for the present purposes and fear from excessive length I will limit myself.
