Politics is considered to be concerned with power

Politics is considered to be concerned with power, the power to make decisions, to control resources, to control other people’s behaviour and often to control their values. All the politicians throughout ages have achieved success thanks to their “skilful use of rhetoric”, by which they aim to persuade their audience of the validity of their views, delicate and careful use of elegant and persuasive language Jones and Peccei, 2004. As politics is a struggle for power in order to put certain political, economic and social ideas into practice. In this process, language plays a crucial role, for every political action is prepared, accompanied, influenced and played by language Schaffner, 1996. It is widely conceived that language and politics are interconnected; language is for instance, considered the vehicular expression of politics. It is the means by which politics or political discourse and ideas are widely disseminated.
