Alderman is the term used to qualify he who rules or directs . The notion can be used as a synonym for regent . Its etymological origin is found in Latin, as can be certified by verifying that it is composed of two parts of that language: the verb "regere", which means "to rule", and the suffix "-dor", which is equivalent to " agent".
According to context , a regent can be a person who performs different functions or occupies a certain position. In the field of theater, television and cinema, the councilor is the one who should organize visual effects and movements ordered by the director of the work.
Thus, for example, in the different television programs, in addition to directors, presenters, sound technicians or cameras, there is the figure of the councilman. This, among many other functions, is responsible for maintaining direct contact with the public, to make it participate as requested in the course of the space as well as to applaud.
A ruler can also be the Mayor of a population . In this case, the councilor is the one who holds the main authority and directs the public administration of the district in question.

Moreover, even in those, in the voting where there is a need to break, it will be the one that will give the decisive vote.
But the function, work and election of the councilor is different in every corner of the world. Thus, for example, in Finland it is not voted by citizens but appointed by a public office since it is an executive officer.
Regidor, on the other hand, can be a councilor. This individual has the responsibility of taking care of a specific sector of the administration of his city, such as health or culture . This kind of ruler, therefore, promotes the development of a certain area.
In ancient times, alderman was also the officer who was dedicated to direct the politics and the economy of some locations. The ruler in the Old Regime he was the individual who ruled his municipality; in Spain , by extension, the mayor is still called a councilman. Instead, in countries like Mexico and Chile , the notion was associated with the councilors.
