The year 2006 was a benchmark year in Brazilian politics, as the country conducted both Presidential and Parliamentary elections. It will be interesting to understand the forces, and political movements that led to the elections in this country. Brazil has had a multi-party system for most of its history, and this multi-party system is one of the most developed systems in the world. Voting is compulsory for all literate people in the age group of 18 to 70, but is optional for illiterate people, and those above 70 years.

The October elections of 2006 saw Brazil being represented by 21 political parties in the Chamber of Deputies. Of these 21 parties, there are some parties that are more important than the others. Since the end of dictatorship in 1988, partisan breakdown has been one of the key features of Brazilian political life. The four major parties that stand out in Brazil are: Workers' Party, Brazilian Social Democracy Party, Brazilian Democratic Movement Party and Democrats.

The aim of this document is to provide an overview of the Brazilian political parties that had the maximum influence in the 2006 elections. This document will shed light on their history, influences and field of action. It will first consider the political parties that garnered maximum votes in the 2006 elections, followed by parties that did not gather as many votes. Though some parties did not receive many votes, their history in politics is worth presenting.

The presentation of the principal parties begins with the Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT). This (PT) is one of the biggest parties in the political life of Brazil in 2006. It is a left-wing party which was formally established in 1980 in Sao Paulo. Among the actors in its construction there is a strong union influence (intellectuals and workers) but also left church (liberation theology, ecclesiastical base communities, etc.).. The country's current president, LuisInacio Lula da Silva was one of the founding members of the group and is its honorary president despite some distance that he has taken with the party since coming to power.
