Abstract


Тhe paper discusses the treaty status of political parties at the EU level, from the Maastricht treaty, when the political parties became, for the first time, a treaty category, all the way to the last, the Treaty of Lisbon. In addition to the analysis of the "party article" and its subsequent genesis, special attention was paid to the struggle of Europarties (transnational party federations) for independence from the political groups in the European Parliament. In this sense, as one of the most important steps along the way, particularly emphasizes the need for legal regulation of party funding at the European level, because it is one of the most important preconditions for the realization of their treaty roles - they contribute to forming a European awareness and to expressing the political will of the citizens of the Union.

Keywords
