  Political status of Taiwan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The political solution that is accepted by most of the current groups is the status quo : that is, to leave Taiwan's status the way it is, as a de facto independent state, without making a formal declaration of independence.
The status quo is accepted in large part because it does not define the legal status or future status of Taiwan, leaving each group to interpret the situation in a way that is politically acceptable to its members.
At the same time, a policy of status quo has been criticized as being dangerous precisely because different sides have different interpretations of what the status quo is, leading to the possibility of war through brinksmanship or miscalculation.

 Political correctness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Political correctness is a term used to criticize what is seen as misguided attempts to impose limits on language and the range of acceptable public debate.
They argue that the political criticism of diction may inhibit freedom of speech, particularly the expression of opinions that risk offending some group; comparisons are sometimes made to George Orwell 's newspeak.
Some on the political left reject the conservative definition of the term when applied as a blanket political epithet to all liberals and leftists, but do believe that there is indeed a political correctness which has become a problem on the left.

 Political Philosophy [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Political rationalism emphasizes the employment of reason in social affairs: that is, individuals ought to submit to the logic and universality of reason rather than their own subjective or cultural preconceptions.
Nonetheless, between individualists (who emphasize the sacred status of the individual) and collectivists (who emphasize the sacred status of the group) exist a panoply of schools of thought that derive their impetus from the philosophical shades — the gray overlapping areas, which are today found in the perpetual disputes between individualists and communitarians.
Politically, socialists claim that the free market system (capitalism) should be replaced or reformed, with most arguing for a radical redistribution of resources (usually to ‘workers’ — i.e., those socialists deem who do not presently own anything) and for the state or some form of democratic institution to take over the running of the economy.

 [No title]
Having had their political power-sharing proposals rejected (Canada's final constitution does not provide a political role for indigenous governments in the confederation) indigenous nations still claiming sovereignty have now the alternatives of seeking political association with a state or seeking total independence.
The political vacuum into which indigenous nations have been thrust is analogous to the conditions experienced by the Timorese peoples when Portugal withdrew from East Timor, in the 1970's, after a long period of colonial occupation.
Even though an indigenous nation may seek bi-lateral negotiations as a means of peacefully defining their political status in relation to the State of Canada, and the other nations of the world, there is no guarantee that the State of Canada or the other nations will be as responsible.

 Political status of the West Bank and Gaza Strip - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The political status of the West Bank and Gaza Strip is one of the most violently disputed issues in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The Israel - PLO Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements (the DOP, better known as the Oslo accords), signed in Washington on 13 September 1993, provided for a transitional period not exceeding five years of Palestinian interim self-government in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
Direct negotiations to determine the permanent status of Gaza and West Bank had begun in September 1999 after a three-year hiatus, but have been derailed by the al-Aqsa Intifada that broke out in September 2000.

 Political Status for Irish Republican Prisoners Petition
Under the hidden agenda of that Agreement, the political status gained by Billy McKee and his comrades on hunger strike in Belfast Jail in 1972, and won back once more after it had been removed by the British government in 1976, was withdrawn again for new prisoners.
It is a continuation of the 'normalisation' (ie criminalisation) process begun by the British in the Six Occupied Counties in the mid 1970s -- To treat the political conflict caused by the British occupation as a series of criminal incidents to be dealt with by the police and the normal justice system.

Plebiscites have been held on the political status of Puerto Rico, but the results are seen as inconclusive for a number of reasons.
11/14/93 Results of the political status plebiscite (which was authorized by the legislature and governor of Puerto Rico) were 826,326 votes for commonwealth (48.6%), 788,296 for statehood (46.3%), and 75,620 for independence (4.4%).
A major provision of the bill is the call for a plebiscite to be held in Puerto Rico by December 1998, at which voters would indicate their political status preference for either commonwealth or full self government (i.e., independence/free association or statehood).

 HUNGER STRIKE COMMEMORATIVE WEB PROJECT: HISTORICAL SURVEY OF POLITICAL STATUS STRUGGLE
We should not forget that the campaign to remove Political Status was part of an original Political package, which included the Northern Ireland Convention, a ceasefire leading to a general ending of hostilities, and the phased release of Internees.
British propaganda at this period attempted to establish that the military and political struggle that had been going on over the last decade in the 6 Cos had ceased to exist, and that the British were only faced with the conspiracy of a few criminals.
They attempted to put a bogus respectability on the torture carried out on the political prisoners, that had preceeded their appearance before the court, in addition to this the Diplock courts were meant to give a legal facade to the Criminalisation policy.

 The need to align political status with emotional reality
The need to align political status with emotional reality is the core, the essence of the dilemma that keeps Puerto Rico etched in indecision.
When political status and emotional reality are out of joint, psychological dislocation results and persistent unease prevails.
The political party that correctly senses this, and properly presents the case for P.R. independence, could gain valuable leverage with the key Hispanic vote in the U.S. Another potential source of support could be the many Puerto Ricans attending stateside colleges and universities.

 USCIS Political Asylum and Refugee Status
Firmly resettled means that the alien was offered residence status, citizenship, or some other form of permanent resettlement by another country and traveled to and entered that nation as a consequence of his or her flight from persecution.
While an applicant granted only withholding of deportation may remain in the country and obtain employment authorization, this status will not lead to permanent residence, and the USCIS can still attempt to deport the alien to a third country that might be willing to accept the alien.
(2) If the applicant is in status, and the officer wishes to deny the case, the applicant must be sent a notice of intent to deny, which sets out the reasons why the officer intends to deny the case, and gives the applicant at least ten days in which to rebut the notice.

In 1947, Karachi was made the capital of the new nation of Pakistan.
At that time Karachi was a city of only 400,000 people, and its growth accelerated as a result of its new status.
Although the capital later moved to Rawalpindi and then Islamabad, Karachi remains the economic centre of Pakistan, accounting for a large portion of the GNP of the nation and a large chunk of the nation's white collar workers.

 Political status of Taiwan - Pictures   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The political status of Taiwan is controversial due to questions about whether Taiwan should remain part of the Republic of China, become part of the People's Republic of China, or become an independent Republic of Taiwan.
When given a choice between the three options of independence, status quo, or unification, typical results of recent polls show 20% in favor of independence, 15% in favor of unification, and about 50% in favor of status quo.
Poll results also tend to be extremely sensitive to how the questions are phrased and what options are given, and there is a tendency by all political parties to spin the results to support their point of view.

The report, "The Status of Women in the States 2000," gives New York state an overall grade of B-minus on its report card for women's economic equality, earnings and employment.
Intended to provide policy-makers at the state level with relevant information necessary to address women's issues, the report establishes baseline measures for the economic, political and social status of women in the state of New York.
Ironically, the study further points out that New York has the highest ranking for women's access to institutional resources in politics because the state has a Commission for Women and a bipartisan Legislative Women's Caucus, where elected officials hold formal meetings to discuss issues that are critical to women, their families and their work.

These Maratha chiefs well understood that the restoration of the true theo-political status of the Golden Temple was an integral part of their Grand National project of regaining liberty of the people and the freedom of India.
Throughout the remaining British period, till 1947, the Sikhs zealously guarded the theo-political status of the Golden Temple and throughout, never hesitated to assert their right to use it and its precincts for the integrated Sikh activities of a theo-political character.
