Sabia and Verona has seen many different political parties during its existence.

Free Suyu Front

The "logo" of the party was a squared banner, based on the banner of the Tawantinsuyu.

The Free Suyu Front (Sabian: jaresuiuhorói; Old Sabian: Jarəımən Cűyu Mekən) was an anarchist[5] movement and political party, originally created as an anti-government group in January 2013, following the victory of the Unity Party in the 2012 general election. On 21 January 2013, it was officially registered as a political party, and signed the Karasal Treaty becoming the third political party in the Kingdom and entering in the national unity government as mandated by the treaty.

Its name derived from Tawantinsuyu, the name used by the Inca Empire's people to refer to their nation. It was led by Hidram Cerwyn and conformed of anarchists, radicals and former members of the Socialist Party. It was mostly present in the Bal area, a predominantly Socialist prefecture. Shortly after the group's foundation, Cerwyn was declared a "threat to national security" by the Kóvérsz government, and accused of having participated in the November 2012 revolts against the government. The FSF was temporarily banned until Cerwyn signed the Karasal Treaty.[5].

The FSF was involved in a controversy when it was uncovered that Kóvérsz's Socialist Minister for Education and Welfare had been an undercover member of the FSF. Though by the time the Minister's involvement with the group was discovered, the FSF was already an official political party, Schubert-Moss' activities dated back to the foundation of the group and continued through the period in which the party had been banned by Sabioveronese authorities. Further investigation revealed the FSF had, during its time as a banned group, colaborated with the Socialist Party in anti-government activities. Schubert-Moss, Hidram Cerwyn and Napoléon Bleuberrie (leader of the Socialist Party) were all charged and put to political trial in the Courts under charges of acting against the government and violating the Karasal Treaty. Eventually, all the defendents were declared innocent.

The FSF would, even after the contoversy, nominate Schubert-Moss as their Prime Minister-candidate for the May 2013 elections[6]. It received 18.8% of the votes and two seats in the Courts, the smallest party at the time.

On June 10, 2013, a Dual Congress of the Free Suyu Front and the Strawberry Party was held, and leaders of both parties agreed to merge the FSF and XAM into a single party by the name of Roots - Earty Party. This marked the dissolution of the FSF.

Strawberry Party

The Strawberry Party (Sabian: Arrugaki; Old Sabian: Arreak mekən) was an environmentalist political party inspired by the social ecology theory founded by then-Governor of Sabia and Verona Tarik Kârjasary in early 2013. Despite being short-lived and never having attained relevance in national politics, the Strawberry Party remains relevant for being the first and so far only party in Sabia and Verona to be founded by a human citizen, and to have actively encouraged participation by human and plush toy citizens equally.[7] It was also one of the first "GUM-sceptic" movements in the Kingdom, opposing Juclandian membersip in the organization.

Following the May 2013 general election, the Strawberry Party earned 3 seats in the third Courts, a minister in the national unity government of Napoléon Bleuberrie (Ryam Piper, appointed Minister for the Environment) and a Lt. Governor (Valentina Giallosso of Tegula).

During its short existence, it often collaborated with the Free Suyu Front, and before the September 2013 election the two parties merged to form the Roots Party. It also collaborated closely with the Pashqari People's Party.[8]

The party stood for greater freedom and civil liberties in the Kingdom, for Juclandian unity and peaceful coexistence, and it was in opposition to Osez Kóvérsz and his Unity Party. In the May 2013 election, the Strawberry Party received 21% of the overall vote, two votes more than the FSF.

Pashqari People's Party

The Pashqari People's Party (Pashqar: ﭘاشقاری ﻣاشطارا ﻣالیک; Pashqari Mäshtharah Mälik; Sabian: Pâshkarik Géntimeâs Mekân), represented by the letter P was a Pashqar-speaking miority and mainly socialist party. It was partly due to the preassure of the party that bill #045, granting the Pashqar language special status in Sabia and Verona passed.

The party was headquartered in Tegula, one of the two municipalities of Verona. It was formerly in alliance with the Strawberry Party[8] and is then belonged to the Progressive Coalition alongside the Roots Party and the Initiative for Democracy. It's the smallest (and youngest) political party in Sabia and Verona after the now deceased Righteous Faith League. The party is officially secular, although most members are adherents to the Church of the Pahun[citation needed].

The PMM seeks, among other things, officialising the Pashqar language and equalising its level to that of the Sabian language. As well, the party would be in favour of renaming Verona to Pashqaria. Although Pashqari people don't think of themselves as an ethnicity, the party supports the idea of a "Pashqari Nation", with territorial borders that include Tegula and the south of Abrelia. The party has environmental views and proposes the creation of National Parks surrounding the Veronese (Pashqari) larger green areas, as well declaring them "natural heritage". The PMM also seeks to legalise some (not all) of the substances outlawed by the Drug Policy of February 2013. Although the party is mostly operational in Tegula and Abrelia, Welïdh seeks for members and general support in Sabia, especially in larger Municipalities such as Salisse and Caenia.

The Party's colours are Black, Green and Red, the colours of Pashqaria. The party has used two logos since it was founded. The first one consisted simply of the word "وېلیده" written in green. The second one consisted of a green star leaning left with the name of the party written under it in green. Both logos were designed by The third and current logo consists of a simple square with round edges and the Pashqari colours with the name of the party written in Pashqo-Arabic. Party members may use either the Pashqaria flag or the flag of the Party, which consists of a modified 1:2 horizontal version of the Pashqaria flag, that instead of the white star bears the name of the Party. Traditionally, the colours of the Pashqari flag hold their own meaning. Black represents ink, a symbol of wisdom. Green represents nature and connection to Earth. Red represents bravery and pride. The star in the centre represents the connection to the sky and its white colour represents the Pahunnia and Fäkhism.

The party was created with the Tegula Essay by Rhaegal Marlaryen and Lukas Pondstone, both Pashqar-speaking activists and residents of the Tegula Municipality in Verona. Originally, the Ministry for Home and Demographics refused to validate the Tegula Essay claiming the Party lacked the number of necessary members to be created. By the time it finally obtained the necessary number of members, the May 2013 elections were a few days ahead, yet the party refused to participate (being later known that it was not possible for the party to parciticipate anyway, due to the small lapse of time between the Party's creation and the elections). From the beginning, tensions between the PMM and the far-right Righteous Faith League grew, both claiming each other's existence was unconstitutional. The party celebrated a triumph when the municipality of Tegula made the Pashqar language official, as approved by the City Council and ratified by the Lt. Secretary of the Municipality, Valentina Giallosso[9]. On July 27, 2013 it became part of the Progressive Coalition. The Progressive Coalition won the September 2013 elections and became the government coalition. The PMM won 3 seats in the Courts. In 2014, Lukas Pondstone became the Leader of the party. For the March 2014 election, Welïdh nominates Shzël Ashaqür as their candidate, and carry two legislative districts at the Chamber of Deputies.
