Left-wing Politics
LEFT-WING POLITICS supports social equality and egalitarianism , often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality . It typically involves a concern for those in society whom its adherents perceive as disadvantaged relative to others (prioritarianism ), as well as a belief that there are unjustified inequalities that need to be reduced or abolished (by advocating for social justice ). The term left-wing can also refer to "the radical , reforming , or socialist section of a political party or system". The political terms "Left" and "Right " were coined during the French Revolution (1789–1799), referring to the seating arrangement in the Estates General : those who sat on the left generally opposed the monarchy and supported the revolution, including the creation of a republic and secularization , while those on the right were supportive of the traditional institutions of the Old Regime

List Of Political Ideologies
In social studies , a political ideology is a certain set of ethical ideals , principles, doctrines , myths or symbols of a social movement , institution , class or large group that explains how society should work, and offers some political and cultural blueprint for a certain social order. A political ideology largely concerns itself with how to allocate power and to what ends it should be used. Some parties follow a certain ideology very closely, while others may take broad inspiration from a group of related ideologies without specifically embracing any one of them. The popularity of an ideology is in part due to the influence of moral entrepreneurs, who sometimes act in their own interests. Political ideologies have two dimensions: * Goals: how society should be organized. * Methods: the most appropriate way to achieve this goal.An ideology is a collection of ideas

Power-sharing
CONSOCIATIONALISM (/kənˌsoʊʃiˈeɪʃənəlɪzəm/ kən-SOH-shee-AY-shən-əl-iz-əm ) is often viewed as synonymous with POWER-SHARING, although it is technically only one form of power-sharing. Consociationalism is often seen as having close affinities with corporatism ; some consider it to be a form of corporatism while others claim that economic corporatism was designed to regulate class conflict , while consociationalism developed on the basis of reconciling societal fragmentation along ethnic and religious lines. The goals of consociationalism are governmental stability, the survival of the power-sharing arrangements, the survival of democracy , and the avoidance of violence . When consociationalism is organised along religious confessional lines, it is known as confessionalism , as is the case in Lebanon

Local Government In The Republic Of Ireland
In Ireland , local government functions are mostly exercised by thirty-one local authorities, termed County, City or City and County Councils. The principal decision-making body in each of the thirty-one local authorities is composed of the members of the council, elected by universal franchise in local elections every five years. Irish Local Authorities are the closest and most accessible form of Government to people in their local community. Many of the authorities' statutory functions are, however, the responsibility of ministerially appointed career officials termed Chief executives . The area under the jurisdiction of each of the authorities corresponds to the area of each of the thirty-one Local administrative unit (LAU 1) Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics

By far the largest contributor to green in nature is chlorophyll , the chemical by which plants photosynthesize and convert sunlight into chemical energy. Many creatures have adapted to their green environments by taking on a green hue themselves as camouflage . Several minerals have a green color, including the emerald , which is colored green by its chromium content
