On Qi extra recent episode the question was asked, "how many Legal political parties does china have"
the answer was given as 8 including the communist party.

This is incorrect as the Communist party of china does not exist as a legal party. this was discovered when a pro democratic activist tried to sue the party. He eventually received the reply that you can not sue the party because it does not exist.

this was recently mirrored when the greek finance minister tried to argue that Greece had a legal right to be in European meetings involved with bailout discussions. When Excluded, Yanis Varoufakis asked for legal clarification and received the reply that the EU does not have a legal status.

The possible fact that a political party itself is no legal entity doesn't imply that the political party cannot be legal (i.e. allowed).

A legal union, a legal entity by choice, in Varoufakis' EU:

Wikipedia wrote:
A union may acquire the status of a "juristic person" (an artificial legal entity), with a mandate to negotiate with employers for the workers it represents. In such cases, unions have certain legal rights, most importantly the right to engage in collective bargaining with the employer (or employers) over wages, working hours, and other terms and conditions of employment.

In other circumstances, unions may not have the legal right to represent workers, or the right may be in question. This lack of status can range from non-recognition of a union to political or criminal prosecution of union activists and members, with many cases of violence and deaths having been recorded historically.

A government can be both a legal entity and not a legal entity, depending on the type of activity.

The principle of "juristic person" is not applicable to the formation of a legal party.
All you can say of the EU and the chinese communist party is that they are not necessarily illegal.
But if Both organisations state for themselves that they are not a legal entity and are therefore not 'suable' or even required to publish minutes then I stand by what I have said here.
The communist party is not one of the 8 legal parties.

And English is not the official language of UK or USA (a fact mentioned in another QI episode).
