The major functions of a Political System are:
Political Socialization: Political socialization is the deliberate inculcation of political information, values and practice by instructional agents who have been formally charged with this responsibility. A broader political socialization would encompass all political bearing formal and informal, deliberate and unplanned at every stage of the life cycle, including not only explicitly political learning but also nominally non-political learning that affects political behaviour, such as the learning of politically relevant social attitudes and the acquisition of politically social attitudes and the acquisition of politically relevant personality characteristics.
Interest Articulation: The interest groups seek to promote:the interests of its members through collective representation. It tries to influence Government action towards the solution of its problems and needs. Interest aggregation involves sorting out different interests and accommodating them in the political polities. Political communication is an important political function which causes the flow of information. Making rules, rule application and rule adjudication done by legislature, executive and judiciary respectively are other important political functions.
