conflict since May 68 and, under duress, abandoned it. He became the most unpopular Prime minister of the Fifth Republic (French Fifth Republic) (challenged only by Édith Cresson). In spring 1997, President Chirac dissolved the National Assembly but lost the legislative election. Alain Juppé was succeeded by the Socialist Lionel Jospin. Furthermore, Juppé left the leadership of the RPR. Another critique is that, in countries historically dominated by one religious tradition, officially

avoiding taking any positions on religious matters favors the dominant religious tradition of the relevant country. They point out that even in the current French Fifth Republic (1958–), school holidays mostly follow the Christian liturgical year, even though Easter holidays have been replaced by Spring holidays, which may or may not include Easter, depending on the years. However, the Minister of Education (Minister of Education (France)) has responded to this criticism by giving leave to students for important holidays of their specific religions, and food menus served in secondary schools (Education in France) pay particular attention to ensuring that each religious observer may respect his religion's specific restrictions concerning diets. To counter the traditional influence of Christian festivals educationalists in line with market forces have often promoted references to Santa Claus, Valentines and Halloween, particularly at primary school level. - 1959 8 January Charles de Gaulle became the first president of the Fifth Republic (French Fifth Republic), whose new constitution greatly increased the President's powers (as opposed the Third (French Third Republic) and Fourth Republics (French Fourth Republic), in which the office of President of the Republic was a largely ceremonial and powerless one). - Origins Cohabitation was a product of the French Fifth Republic, albeit an unintended one. This constitution brought together a potent presidential (President of France) position with manifold executive powers and a prime minister (Prime minister of France), responsible before Parliament (Parliament of France). The president's task was primarily to end deadlock and act decisively to avoid the stagnation prevalent under the French Fourth Republic; the prime minister, similarly, was to "direct the work of government", providing a strong leadership to the legislative branch and to help overcome partisan squabbles. Observations *Some Scholars contend that French Fifth Republic usually operates under a presidential system, but when in cohabitation, this effectively changes, at least in terms of domestic policy, to a parliamentary system, in which the prime minister controls the legislative agenda and the president's powers are limited to foreign policy and defence. *A common problem during cohabitation is that each leader wants his or her own policies to be carried out so that the public is positive toward their strategies and will be elected when the time comes. Because each party is in competition, there is little room for progression since the friction between both sides holds each other back. Whilst leaders of the same political spectrum help each other in decision-making when in power simultaneously, cohabitation can lead to a decline in national authority and make the country appear outwardly insecure. Senators are elected indirectly (indirect election) by approximately 150,000 officials ("grands électeurs"), including regional councilors, department councilors, mayors, city councilors in large towns, and members of the National Assembly. However, 90% of the electors are delegates appointed by councilors. This system introduces a bias in the composition of the Senate favoring rural areas. As a consequence, while the political majority changes frequently in the National Assembly, the Senate has remained politically conservative since the foundation of the Fifth Republic (French Fifth Republic), much to the displeasure of the Socialists (French Socialist Party), Gilles Le Béguec, ''Les socialistes et le Sénat'', Parlement s , Revue d'histoire politique, n° 6 2006 2, pp. 57–72, L'Harmattan, ISBN 2200921163 This has spurred controversy, especially after the September 2008 senatorial elections Foccart was an initiator of what would become known as the ''Françafrique'', a term borrowed from Félix Houphouët-Boigny, president of Côte d'Ivoire, by François-Xavier Verschave. This expression would survive until François Mitterrand's 1981 election (French presidential election, 1981) and the first socialist (French Socialist Party) government of the Fifth Republic (French Fifth Republic) (founded in 1958), in particular with Mitterrand's son, Jean-Christophe (Jean-Christophe Mitterrand), nicknamed "Papamadi" ("Papa-told-me"). A century after Napoleon III's reign, new housing needs and the rise of a new voluntarist Fifth Republic (French Fifth Republic) opened a new era of Parisian urbanism. The new era rejected Haussmannian ideas as a whole to embrace those represented by architects such as Le Corbusier in abandoning unbroken street-side facades, limitations in building size and dimension, and even closing the street itself to automobiles with the creation of separated, car-free spaces between the buildings for pedestrians. This new model was quickly brought into question by the 1970s, a period marked a rediscovery of the Haussmann heritage: a new promotion of the multifunctional street was accompanied by limitations in the building model and, in certain quarters, by an attempt to rediscover the architectural homogeneity of the Second Empire (Second French Empire) street-block.

imported from India) and indigenous animism. The Pyu and Mon (Mon people) kingdoms of the first millennium were Buddhist, but the early Bamar peoples were animists. According to traditional history, King Anawrahta of Bagan adopted Buddhism in 1056 and went to war with the Mon (Mon people) kingdom of Thaton in the south of the country in order to obtain the Buddhist Canon (Tripitaka) and learned monks. The religious tradition created at this time, and which continues to the present day, is a syncretalist mix of what might be termed 'pure' Buddhism (of the Theravada school) with deep-rooted elements of the original animism or nat worship (Nat (spirit)) Commons:Category:Bagan Wikipedia:Bagan

Emancipation Emancipation Jewish culture was dominated by religious tradition. As most Rabbinical authorities believed that the Second Commandment (Ten Commandments#Jewish interpretation) prohibited much visual art that would qualify as "graven images", Jewish artists were relatively rare until they lived in assimilated European communities beginning in the late 18th century.
