Last June 30th parliament elections were held in East Timor and there are
quite a few changes: There are new parties, others disappeared, yet others
changed names — and there are new and changed flags, too!

New parties in Timor-Leste and new party flags.
Here are some
pics of the flags of the parties which are taken place at elections in
J. Patrick Fischer, 31 May 2007
Main sources for the official flags used this election are the
ETAN page, and
leaflet in Tetum with a short campaign statement from each party, complete
with flag, Vota ba partidu ne’ebé ita hakarak
At the Parliament website, some parties
(not necessarily the larger) have their own page: some of these show either
their flag or logo. Interesting that the
paper (image available also
shows most party logos as flags. This is never done in
Portugal, and as far as I know party flags are not a big issue
in Australia either (these two being the foreign
countries that most influenced the Timorese electoral process). This relative
popularity of party flags is surely something that evolved locally,
perhaps also influenced by Indonesian practice.

I am not at all very surprised to witness the disappearence of most parties
who run for the 2001 elections.

At least some parties will go further. I am collecting informations as far as possible about the timorese elections via internet. These are the candidates for presidential elections:
In the presidential election of 2007.04.07, the ballot paper identified candidates with a flag design, along a photo and full name, as usual:
East Timor is preparing for elections, as a step on the way to independence. Party flags are appearing, as can be seen from news photos like these:
Adding to the 16 parties (PDC,
PDM, ASDT and
individual candidates also run to the August 2001 elections, of which
two are identified by means of their personal ex-libris — I know
nothing of these being used on flags…

UNTAET’s Regulation No. 2001/2:
Quite iteresting, isn’t it? It seems that Falintil/CNRT-derived flags are to be reserved for the new national symbol…
On the election of a constituent assembly to prepare a constitutionA political party … shall be deemed to be registered … if the Chief Electoral Officer is satisfied … that the political party does not have a symbol which is the same as or similar to the flag of another nation, any currently used mlitary symbol or insignia, the Falintil symbol, or the National Council of East Timorese Resistance symbol …
for an independent and democratic East Timor
It allows symbols based on the red-yellow-black
arrowhead flag, entirely connoted to the most radical independentist
tendencies. But I guess it would have been hard to avoid it with anything
short of a direct reference…
Jorge Candeias, 28 Apr 2001
Another party in the news is the National Unity Forum FUN, another
anti-FRETILIN-party. I am not sure, if it is the
same party like the Movement for National Unity MUN, a daughter of the street
gang organization Colimau 2000, which I found in some reports
before. Colimau 2000 had important roles in the ethnical clashes in
2006 in Timor-Leste. It is suspect of criminal actions like robbery, extortion
and arson. Colimau 2000 has it center in the districts of
Ermera and Bobonaro in
the west of the country.

At the official blog of U.D.T., a new party is announced to have been created in June 2007 («yesterday», they say on an undated page?): The Liga Democrática Progressiva (“Democratic Progressive League”, though the correct word in Portuguese would be "Progressista"), joins all six smaller parties, which recieved no seats in the Parliament:
