Democracy is a form of government or political system where the people retain the power to decide who governs them and for what period of time. Components of democracy include freedom of assembly, minority right, right to life, consent and freedom of speech. Ideally, democracy exists in two forms: direct democracy and representative democracy. Whereas in direct democracy the people directly decide their own affairs, representative democracy is a system where the people donate their sovereignty to elected leaders to govern on their behalf and is manifested in institutions like parliament, judiciary and the executive. ‘To make democracy work, we must be a nation of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain’-Louis L’Amour.
