Why Are Minor Political Parties Important?

Answer

Minor political parties are important because they are able to take very clear stands on controversial issues whereas most major parties cannot. A candidate from a minor party can also play the role of a spoiler in an election where the two major parties are very evenly matched. Minor parties can take enough of the votes from one of the major candidates to cost them the election. Minor parties have also managed to reform many aspects of political life by acting as critics when necessary.
