Summary/Abstract: In every society the actors of the institutional culture have their own patterns of discursive and practical behaviour. This approach for analysing the social processes is encouraged by seeking the space of interaction between the role and the identity of social existence. We direct our research towards the functioning of a part of the political elite of the Republic of Macedonia – the Member of Parliament and its opponent – public opinion. So far, in the scholarly research, Parliament has been less interesting as an institution than as a carrier of concentrated political power and authority for regulating social relations. Consequently, the socio-political research, which is concerned with the power of society groups, rarely treats the question of the representatives separately; they are usually analysed as part of the political elite or the elite of power. We shall try and make the necessary distinction and locate some of the specifics of the institution representative, because every social occurrence is connected to the society structure in one way or other.
