Conservatism can be described as a social or political philosophy that advocates or
promotes traditional social institutions. Conservatism has property rights, tradition, authority,
hierarchy, and organic society as its central tenets. The role of Conservatism is to seek the
promotion and preservation of property rights and social institutions such as parliamentary
government and religion for the purpose of promoting social continuity and stability. The

criteria," these conditions include: “acceptance of EU legislation, a free market economy, respect
for the rule of law, and stable democracy”3. The first step to becoming an EU member involves
