  Radical Party (France) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Radical Party (Parti Radical or Républicains Radicaux et Radicaux-Socialistes, Radical Republicans and Radical Socialists), was a major French political party of the early to mid 20th century, originally considered radical due to its anti-clericalism.
Radicalism was already a well-established movement in France before the Radical Party itself was established in 1901 in wake of the Dreyfus Affair.
In the early 1970s, the party, under the leadership of Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber, again made tentative moves to the left, but stopped short of an alliance with Socialist François Mitterrand and his Communist allies, leading to a final split in 1972, when the remaining left-wing Radicals left the party, becoming eventually the Parti Radical de Gauche.

 French political landscape in turmoil
The parties of the ruling coalition--Parti Socialiste (PS), Parti Communiste Français (PCF), Mouvement des Citoyens (MDC), Parti radical de gauche (PRG) and the Greens--have a tiny advantage with 36.5 percent of the vote and 676 deputies.
At every level of the party there were advocates and opponents of working with the FN who used every opportunity on television and in other media to put forward their arguments.
The fact, however, that established parties are suddenly breaking apart and politicians who only yesterday were regarded as the cream of society are slugging it out, cannot be explained away by simple "personal ambition" and the usual haggling for posts and sinecures.

 Left Radical Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Left Radical Party (Parti Radical de Gauche or PRG) is a minor French centre-left, social-liberal party with moderate views, formed in 1972 by a split from the Radical Republicans and Radical Socialists Party, once the dominant party of the French left.
The PRG, originally known as the Movement of Left Radicals (Mouvement des Radicaux de Gauche), retains some support among middle-class voters and in traditional Radical areas in the south-west, but it only gains parliamentary representation by courtesy of the Socialist Party, with which it has been in close alliance since 1982, often running joint lists.

France's first Marxist party, the French Workers' Party (Parti Ouvrier Français), founded in 1880, claimed to represent the proletariat; its constitution was drafted largely by the radical labour leader Jules Guesde with input from Karl Marx (who wrote the preamble), Marx's son-in-law Paul Lafargue, and Friedrich Engels.
In the legislative elections of 1945, the party emerged as the second largest in the country, winning 23 percent of the vote and 146 seats in the Chamber of Deputies, and it entered a coalition government with the PCF and the Christian Democratic Popular Republican Movement (Mouvement Républicain Populaire).
However, party membership soon began a steep decline, dropping from about 300,000 in 1945 to 140,000 in 1951, and in subsequent elections in the 1940s and '50s the SFIO averaged only about 15 percent of the vote, though it continued to participate in a number of governments.

 biology - Left-wing politics
In politics, left-wing, political left, leftism, or simply the left, are terms that refer (with no particular precision) to the segment of the political spectrum typically associated with any of several strains of socialism, social democracy, or liberalism (especially but not exclusively in the American sense of the word), or with opposition to right-wing politics.
The more ardent proponents of radical revolutionary measures (including democracy and republicanism) were commonly referred to as leftists because they sat on the left side of successive legislative assemblies.
For example, the Democratic Leadership Council (in which Bill Clinton was active) is generally considered to form the right wing of the U.S. Democratic Party (which outside the US is considered to be right of center), but in terms of the whole country he was generally perceived as being on the moderate left.
