Solution

Differences between political parties and pressure groups:

  • Unlike pressure groups which try to influence the government’s policies, political parties are groups of people which come together to contest elections and hold power in the government.
  • While pressure groups tend to wield power, if any, without responsibilities, political parties aim at direct control or share of political power of the State.
