The history of political parties in Indokistan spanned from 2010 to 2013, though the country existed until 2016. First politicl parties were established in the First Republic in 2010, and political parties survived until the collapse of the Third Republic in 2012.

Political parties established prior to the Revolution reviving their activities. The Communist Party, mainly blamed for atrocities during the Communist government, had its activity prohibited and its assets frozen by the new government. Communist Party prohibition ended in February 2011, as the government allows the party to resume its activity.

All political parties during this period participating on the Indokistani only parliamentary election in March 2011 to form the Farhangrad Parliament, resulting on plurality for the National Party. Later protests by citizens, accusing government bias against Islamic Party, resulting on the cancellation of the results. The Parliament later composed by equal number of seats allocated for all parties, while the National Party successfully maintained its plurality because of the Nationalist Prime Minister's uncontested seat.

In May 2011, political parties began to change their images, taking massive political development and consolidation as chance to establish their changes to attract supporters towards their political parties. National Party was changed to United Republican, and formerly-banned Communist Party was changed to People's Social Party. Islamic Party became the only political party to not to change their identity.
