(English) This is an essay. It expresses the opinions and ideas of some Wikimedians but may not have wide support.

A WikiParty, apparently, is a faction that declares itself as having a certain common position on the Wikipedia power structure. Some deplore these as evidence of factionalism. Others consider them very necessary to achieve regime change in a peaceful way. There is no clear consensus yet.

What is clear is that no community above a certain size has been governed without either a religious hierarchy or such "political" structures.[citation needed]

Another type of Wiki party is a political party based on wiki. Some more ideas about this: The Wiki Party, by Guaka.
