Disadvantages of Multi-Party System

1. Multi-Party is usually unstable and in perpetual flux.

2. It encourages coalition government (two or more parties forming the government) such governments are often weak.

3. The parties in multi-party system represent specific sections of the community, the system entrenches ethnic or sectional consciousness. National consciousness is then slow to develop.

4. Multi-party system is expensive since each party has to maintain its offices.
