Political discrimination in politics

Other Names:
Active political prejudice in politics

Discrimination by the dominant or governing party may be practised against the adherents of political parties which are considered to be subversive or against the interests of the state, and may also take the form of banning political parties and intimidating their members and supporters, manipulating the ballot in a 'free' election, or refusing the right of elections (such as in an absolute monarchy). It serves to maintain existing inequality and injustice and may lead to subversive activities, violence or revolution.
