Abstract. There are three main ways of political communication implemented in the communicative space: through informal contacts, through socio-political organizations (institutions) and through the media. Communicative space represents a specific form of vital activity of society, in which the possibility of the organization of social relations and interactions of individuals, social groups and institutions of government and society are realized through communication. Hence, political communication allows reflecting the specific content of functionally delineated and spatially defined communicative processes in the public administration system, where social and political information is being qualitatively transformed. In this regard, it is important to analyze the spatial characteristics of political communication, to identify the main elements and dynamics of political communication in conditions of socio-political transformations and the development of the information society. The term of ‘Information-communication’ here refers to specific mass-media activity related to the search and transmission of actual social information in digital form to a mass audience and thereby serving as an information communicatorship.

Keywords: social communication, political communication, political space, a space of political communication, information and communication, mediacracy
