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 People's National Movement and the People's Partnership (United National Congress, Congress of the People, Tobago Organization of the People, National Joint Action Committee and Movement for Social Justice). The PNM has governed Trinidad and Tobago from 1956-86, 1991-95, and 2001 to 2010, and currently serves as the official Opposition.The UNC governed from 1995-2001 and has been a leading member of the People's Partnership Government since May 2010.
