What is a Democracy?
A democracy is a system of government where the people have a say in all the decisions pertaining to the nation. The people in a democratic nation have the authority to decide the legislation or to choose government servants to do so.
The idea of democracy has been changing over the years. The oldest form of democracy was more of a 'direct democracy.' The most common form of democracy is the 'indirect democracy' or 'representative democracy,' where elected people represent a group of people.
