Hungarian League (1848-1855): A centre-right party aimed at the former territories of the Kingdom of Hungary, it was disbanded after the purge as 'responsible for the Hungarian Uprising'.
Pan-Danubian Party (1848-1860, formerly the Slavic and Romanian Liberal Party): A centre-left party based around the notions of equal rights and a programme of both moderate liberalism and federalism, it was powerful at its peak but faded with the recession of the radical threat later merging into the Federal Democratic Party.

Free Market Party (1855-1860; formerly the Southern League of the Balkans and Danube): A liberal party that advocated free trade in particular. It had a reasonable following along the Adriatic Coast, but had no real influence over Federal politics. It merged with Liberalno-Demokratyczna to the Free Democrat Party.
Liberalno-Demokratyzyna Party (1860): A liberal party supportive of civil freedoms and small government. It didn't even survive a year, merging into the Free Market Party within six months of its founding.
Zentrum (1854-1863): A centrist party which advocated equal rights but not at the expense of states' rights. It may have become the 'state party of Carniola' but ultimately it failed to have a major impact on the Federal stage.
Pan-Carolingian Party (1863-1864): A pan-European party centered around the legacy of Charlemagne, the PCP was founded mainly as a political vehicle for its founder Joachim von Kirchberg. Dissolved as soon as he took up a Consulate-General in the colony of Melilla.

The Danubian Workers' and Laborers' Party (1884-1885): The first openly Communist Party in the Federation, and the only party that calls for violent revolution in its charter; its founder, Evzan Kanelos, was arrested for dissidence shortly after its founding, which shortly thereafter led to the dissolution of his party.
New Martial and Security League (1880-1886): A radical conservative party that advocated the abolition of the states in favour of a unified and centralised Danubian state. It supported the policies of its namesake, the original MSL (which was disbanded following the defeat of the rightist coup in 1860). It was forced to disband during the Faberist inquisition.
Constitutional Union for Peace and Prosperity (1885-1887; formerly the Danubian Peace and Prosperity Party): A centrist party built on traditionally liberal policies. Interestingly enough, it was born from the ashes of the first Communist Party and by Oighrig Kanelos, brother of imprisoned radical Evzan Kanelos. Under Alp Mustafa, the party merged with the non-Italian elements of the Constitutional Union; after negotiations CUPP joined the Constitutional Union. Leader: O. Kanelos (1885-1886), A. Mustafa (1886-1887)
Danubian Peoples' Party (1883-1887): While running for the position of Governor of Bosnia, the prominent Serbian politician Vladimir Aleksandar formed a party to represent the workers, as well as religious and cultural minorities, among other people.
