  1. Hi Aigars,

    I have to thank you for featuring Parlament on your website! 🙂 I really really appreciate it! I’ve tried to do my best and it just warms my heart to see my work appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    1. That’s why this list is for. Please feel free to choose the right theme to start with. Personally I would go for Political Press because it feels premium and has this political style that you can’t confuse with anything else.

  2. Hello, thank you for the list of Best Political WordPress Themes.

    There is a list of free themes for city council websites?

    Best recards, and thank you again.

    1. Cesar,

      Thank you for your question!

      There aren’t any read-made city council themes out there because it is way too specific niche. However, most of above listed themes could be easily tweaking (without coding knowledge but by using drag and drop editors that comes with these themes) to be used for city council. If now you can check these multipurpose themes that are even more flexible and are ready to be used for any niche websites.

  3. Hi, I am looking for a simple yet creative template for my personal website where i would like to talk about myself, hobbies along with whats happening around the globe, i have gone thru your articles and instantly became your fan, looking forward for some nice suggestions…

    1. It sounds more that you are looking for some blog theme such as these. That way you will be able to structure your content and provide with regular updates to your readers. Above listed themes are better suited for political campaigns and static website that are not going to work that well for blogging.
