  Political Parties in Jamaica
Jamaica has a two-party system, the major parties being the Jamaica Labour Party and the People's National Party. A large number of minor parties have cropped up and disintegrated in the past, with very few (if any) actually winning seats in Parliament. Over 46 political parties have been formed since independence in August 1962.
