A multi party system is dominant in Uttar Pradesh with a predominance of multiple smaller regional parties. The Election Commission of India registers parties to contest state as well as national elections. The party needs to have undertaken some sort of political activity for 5 consecutive years in oder to gain recognition as State Party. The party must also send minimum 4 per cent quota to the lower house of India, i.e. the Lok Sabha or 3.33 per cent to the State assembly. If in case, the party fails to fulfill the above conditions, it can gain recognition by garnering at least 6 per cent of total votes in either state elections or national elections that are polled in its contesting candidates.

The Election Commission of India automatically recognize the party as a national party if the party gets recognition in 4 or more states. There are various symbols offered by the Election Commission of India. A party can choose any of the available symbols. Every state of India along with union territories have a elected government unless President's rule is imposed.
