On July 8th and 9th, 2021, the Federal Electoral Committee determined which of the associations as parties within the meaning of Section 2 (1)Political parties law are to be recognized. You can then run for election with state lists if you can show sufficient support signatures by July 19, 2021.

At that time, nine parties were represented in the Bundestag or in a state parliament with at least five members based on their own election proposals. Therefore, they did not have to report their participation and do not require any support signatures. These are: CDU , CSU , SPD , FDP , Die Linke , GRÜNE , AfD , Free Voters and BVB / Free Voters . The federal electoral committee also recognized 44 parties with notices of participation. This means that 53 parties can take part in the 2021 federal election for the time being.

Associations whose party status has been rejected by the federal electoral committee can lodge an appeal against the decision with the Federal Constitutional Court in accordance with Section 18 (4a) of the Federal Electoral Act . The Federal Constitutional Court can then recognize them as parties.
