Single-issue political parties
Single-issue political parties are political parties that enter candidates in elections in order to push a single issue, rather than a comprehensive set of policies. A single-issue political party is not the same as a pressure group which works with (or against) existing political leaders and parties and advocates change through public campaigns and in the media, but does not seek election.
