When they say that political sovereignty resides within the people, or the people are politically sovereign, is that the same idea as popular sovereignty? Or are they completely different ideas?

I just want some clarity on this so that I don't mess up with my explanations of sovereignty.

So parliamentary sovereignty is the idea that parliament is the ultimate and supreme law making power in the land. Sovereignty of the people is the idea that people send representatives in order to create a parliament and government. This all comes into the idea of popular sovereignty. Overall, the idea of popular sovereignty is the principle that the authority of a state and its government is created and sustained by the consent of its people, through their elected representatives, who are the source of all political power.
