Capitalization of 'The Left' and 'The Right'?

2

Example "The Left regrouped and took another vote.  The Right were outnumbered and defeated". In politics where referring to factions within a party, should the terms be capitalized? And also should the word 'party' be capitalized, when referring to political parties, eg the Labour party or The Labour Party?
