I'm for more parties and government being formed by coalitions rather than two useless/ good for nothing, and corrupt parties that are increasing moving at total opposite sides of the spectrum.

Get rid of all of them, except the revolutionary Marxist-Leninist-oriented Communist Party.

Political parties are useful in which they have a role and serve an important function of representing a majority of people’s political views in government.

Ideally- Get rid of them.

Realistically- Create more and allow more parties to compete with each other.

Even if we got rid of parties we would still see the development of factions and other things. They're just too natural and imbeded into our society. That included they do serve useful purposes.

That's not true. The Communist Party of the Soviet Union prohibited factionalism, and the rule was enforced. In the end of the 1920's Trotsky had violated this rule and was consequently removed from the party.

Trotsky was mainly removed because of his dislike of Stalin and how he thought he betrayed the revolution.

Trotsky was farther right than Stalin, and was called a half Menshevik by Lenin. Any reasonable assessment would conclude that Trotsky was betraying the revolution, especially when he violated the rules of the party against factionalism.
