The SDCP is the oldest active party in Estmere, having been founded in 1901. It was first founded as the Estmerish Section of the Workers' International, and organised with the trade union movement, but the core of the party merged with co-operativists and municipal socialists in the aftermath of the Great Collapse and rebranded, with the left splitting off into the modern day ESWI. Though a not an official successor, it effectively subsumed the ILC and the CRP, with those MPs taking the SDCP whip. The circumstance of its creation made the SDCP unique from other social democratic parties, with a distinctly co-operatist ideology. The SDCP became the second major party in the aftermath of the Great War, but was overtaken by the resurgent Reform Party in the 1980s; while they have recently again overtaken Reform. The party returned to power in the 2021 election. The party is currently led by Zoe Halivar, who is seen as a member of the soft left of the party.

The modern SDU was founded in 1960, as a merger of the Sotirian democratic Sotirian People's Party and the conservative National Democratic Party, which were considered the parties of the High and Low Churches respectively. This created a big tent party of the right, with social conservatism as its defining feature. The two traditional wings were joined by a monetarist faction in the 1980s. The SDU led a number of governments after its formation, and has consistently been considered a major party. Previously leading a current coalition government with the Reform Party from 2016 to 2021, the party was returned to opposition in 2021. It is currently led by Reginald Wilton-Smyth, who originates from the National Democratic wing of the party, but is considered to be a right-wing populist.

In 1978, the Progressives split from the SDCP, opposed to their economic shift to the left and perceived abandonment of social reform. They were joined by the remnants of the Radical Liberals and the Constitutionalist Party, in addition to some moderate defectors from the SDU, together merging into the Reform Party in 1980. The party won its first electoral test in 1981, overtaking the SDCP and SDU and forming the first Reform government. The party also governed alongside the SDCP in the 2000s, but has recently been overtaken again by the SDCP. The party is considered to be social liberal and progressive, with a strongly Euclophilic stance. Jim Reynolds is the current leader of the party, elected in 2021. He is seen as a unifying figure.

Focusing on green politics, the Greens were founded in 1972, and were first elected to office in 1982 in opposition to proposals for nuclear power. The party gained further prominence in the succeeding decades, with factions espousing eco-socialism and green liberalism emerging in the party. The party is considered to be progressive and Euclophilic. The party has two co-leaders, at least one of which must be a woman or non-binary. The current co-leaders are Sara Hall-Brookes and Nathan Coutanche, who were elected on a watermelon ticket.

Founded in 1914, the Estmerish Section of the Workers' International is a minor left-wing party in Estmere. It was founded in opposition to the proposed merger and rebranding that led to the SDCP, which its members saw as too reformist and moderate. The party was influenced by OSAI and SGIO, and adopted a platform of council socialism. The party experienced a mild revival in the aftermath of the Great War, but from then on ESWI entered a period of decline. A second revival was experienced in the 1990s, as the party adopted a Euclosceptic stance and a number of defections from the more moderate SDCP. Since then, it has been overtaken by the Greens as the main left-wing party. It is currently led by Ted Barnes, a former militant union boss. In Estmere's overseas territories, ESWI stands aside for and supports sister parties BKMI in Kingsport and SRFSWI in St Roberts and Fleming.

The SCCA was founded in April 2021 in anticipation of the upcoming election, in which the party gained representation for the first time and surpassed the Party of the Swathish as the sixth largest party. It was founded as a merger of the existing Countryside Party and the new Senior Citizens Alternative, which was an SDU splinter founded in response to the missing pensions scandal. The party campaigns for pensioners' interests, with an agrarian and social conservative platform more broadly. Dorris Tippery, a former SDU minister, has served as party leader since its foundation.

It has never participated in a national government, but is currently a junior coalition partner in the Weald. It has been led by Aelfwin Stringer since 2009.

Estmere First was founded in 1991 as a nationalist reaction to the nearing implementation of the Euclozone. The preceding Shilling Party merged with the Anti-Federalist Party and defectors from the SDU to form a new right-wing populist party of the right, emphasising Estmerish nationalism and Euclosceptism. The party's single issue was an opposition to the adoption of the Euclo, but after it came into force in 1995, the party moved to a generally Euclosceptic and nationalist position. George Avery, the youngest of the Avery brothers, resigned the leadership after the 2021 election in which the party lost national representation, and party chair Anthony Pebbles is the current interim leader.

Operating as the Kingsport affiliate of the SDCP, the KSCP is one of the most prominent parties in the territory. It was founded in 1971 by trade unionists in order to contest elections to the Kingsport Territorial Council, and gained support from the mainland SDCP, with which the party affiliated formally in 1989. Candidates in Kingsport run on behalf of both the KSCP and the SDCP, and KSCP members have membership of the wider SDCP. The party is considered centre-left, and since the 1997 sovereignty referendum has officially been an Estmerish unionist party. The youthful Adi Harjo currently leads the party, and has been considered a rising star in the wider Estmerish labour movement. The party formed a coalition government following the 2017 election.

Kingsport United is both the largest opposition party and the largest party without a national affiliation in Kingsport. It traces its routes to the 1997 sovereignty referendum, where it was founded as an Estmerish unionist campaigning and pressure group, aiming to organise among the island's large Badi community. The group registered as a political party in 1999, and quickly overtook the SDU as the largest party of centre-right unionists. The party has a liberal conservative platform, and is popular among local businesspeople. Prominent local businessman Purnama Budi has led the party since 2011.
