An extra-parliamentary opposition is a political movement opposed to a ruling government or political party that chooses not to engage in elections. Many social movements could be categorized as an extra-parliamentary opposition.


The German New Left movement Au├čerparlamentarische Opposition (APO, Extraparliamentary Opposition) is one of the best known examples of this phenomenon. The APO challenged the grand coalition of the Social Democratic Party and the Christian Democratic Union, which controlled 95 percent of the seats in the Bundestag between 1966 and 1969.

The Italian Far Left movement Lotta Continua (LC - Continuous Struggle) is one of the best known examples of this phenomenon in Italy.

United States

The Tea Party movement and Coffee Party USA of the later 2000s and early 2010s are two ongoing examples of extraparliamentary political movements which do not seek to engage in an election but instead support specific candidates of other, larger parties.
