Explanation for Democratic and Undemocratic Countries

The Supreme Court of India’s decision binds all other courts in India. Neither the executive nor the legislature can control the Indian judiciary. The government or ruling party cannot control the judges of the Indian courts. Read the points given below to have an understanding of democratic and non-democratic countries:

  • Country S: It is undemocratic because the Ministry of Finance should not have the power to decide on the direction of the nation’s economy. The finance ministry may seek advice from the central bank on economic policy. Nevertheless, the finance minister is a member of the government, and since the government is chosen by and answerable to the people, it can be said to be a representative of the people.
  • Country R: The State Department can assess the positive and negative geopolitical implications of signing treaties with other countries and take appropriate action, but requesting permission from those countries to accept a treaty is undemocratic and goes against the will of the people who elected the government to power. R’s country is therefore not democratic.
  • Country P: The task of the army chief is to safeguard the borders from external aggression. The government may consult and receive input from the commander of the military when approving laws relating to the military. The ultimate powers rest with the government in a democracy, and the army chief has no right to prevent the lawmakers from passing military-related laws in parliament. Therefore, country P is undemocratic.
  • Country B: It is democratic as it highlights that the constitution has powers given to the judiciary. Importantly, it also shows that the judiciary is independent and is an essential indicator of a country’s democracy.
