The essay considers how constitutional principles related to political parties shape the discussion about electoral laws and their compatibility with the Constitution, or fail to do so. In fact, this discussion is clearly centred around the principle of equal suffrage, and it often struggles to encompass the relevance of political parties for electoral laws properly. The essay focuses on the reasons of so problematic an interaction.
