Kenya as  an independent country has enjoyed some level of peace and stability politically until recently. The politics in Kenya encourage a multi-party system which has been in effect since 1992 but this also  has recorded a drastic decline in the recent time. Basically, Kenya’s political system is something that could be regarded as a two-party system in terms of characteristics, since two dominant political parties in Kenya c.q. coalitions have dominated since the last general elections in 2007. On the contrary to what a lot of people think, Kenya actually has a multi-party system that dates as far back as 1992 with one of the ruling coalitions consisting of several parties. As of 2007, there are more than 160 registered political parties in Kenya, however with the implementation of several Political Parties Acts that came on 31 December 2008 act, the number was drastically reduced and on 30 April 2012, twenty-four political parties were issued registration certificates while 22 others had applied for registration. We’ve decided to come up with a comprehensive list of Kenya political parties, so glance below to see a comprehensive list of political parties in Kenya with registration certificates.
