In Brazil, we have the law "9096" of 1995 thats control the creation and
functioning of political parties. By the law, we have this steps to a
political party creation:

1) One fundation meeting with 101 or more people of 1/3 of brazilian states
(1/3 of 26 states = 8 states); The acta of meeting is registered on TSE
(Superior Electoral Court) with a statute that regulates the functioning of
party and a program that define its politics. The status is written: What is
the party b)  How it works. Parties in Brazil register two main documents:
the party program and the statute. Here we have a relative freedom to write
a statute and a program only ensuring that it complies with the
constitution. I think is possible register other documents like a
declaration of principles in TSE too. The party needs a address in the
capital of Brazil: Brasilia.

2) In this point, the party is registered, but not completely. It starts a
"Support Campaign" that pick signatures of minimum number of 0.5% the
previous election for the Chamber of Deputies. Now its is about 500 mil
signatures. The signatures are on paper, you can not use electronic

3) The signatures have submited to TSE to confirmation. The TSE issue a
certificate that allows the party participate in the elections and have
space on radio and tv, and receive a share of the party fund. The party is
completely registered and participate in the elections.

Best regards,

The Brazilian Pirate Party
