Political democracy has mainly developed in respect to the rights for electing and being elected in recent centuries. But by the rise of new social movements, political democracy is inclined to different. issues. nonetheless, it would seem that the development of democracy is in such a way that it does not oppose the current political premises in advanced industrial societies, nor does it reject the present socio-economic models. Thus this study argues that new social movements are conservative mainstreams, because they lack an advanced socio-economic alternative. meanwhile, new social movements, from the functional point of view, have a reinforcing role of maintaining political democracy, in final analysis, therefore, the new social movements, in terms of their nature, belong to the conservative forces.
