Political system

A political system is a system of politics and government.

It is usually compared to the legal system, economic system, cultural system, and other social systems.

However, this is a very simplified view of a much more complex system of categories involving the views: who should have authority, how religious questions should be handled, and what the government's influence on its people and economy should be.

There are several definitions of "political system": A political system is a complete set of institutions, interest groups (such as political parties, trade unions, lobby groups), the relationships between those institutions and the political norms and rules that govern their functions (constitution, election law).

A political system is composed of the members of a social organization (group) who are in power.

A political system is a system that necessarily has two properties: a set of interdependent components and boundaries toward the environment with which it interacts.

A political system is a concept in which theoretically regarded as a way of the government makes a policy and also to make them more organized in their administration.

A political system is one that ensures the maintaining of order and rationality in the society and at the same time makes it possible for some other institutions to also have their grievances and complaints put across in the course of social existence.
