Trinidad and Tobago has a two-party system, which means that there are two dominant political parties, with extreme difficulty for anybody to achieve electoral success under the banner of any other party. Currently the two major parties are the ruling People's National Movement (PNM) and the opposition and the People's Partnership (a coalition of the United National Congress, Congress of the People, Tobago Organization of the People, and National Joint Action Committee).
Note: Colour codes are used for ease of recognition of political parties in data tables and figures. For older parties the colour is not necessarily indicative of the colour used by that party at the time.
