we explore the idea that democracy is only meaningful when citizens demand their rights, and how politicians, administrative bodies, and the judiciary must work to protect these rights. We delve into the role of citizens in democracy, the accountability of politicians and administrative bodies, the importance of the judiciary, the need for civic education, the dangers of authoritarianism, and more. Through dialogue and debate, citizens can ensure that democracy remains a vital part of society, empowering individuals to participate in the decision-making process and hold their elected officials accountable.
Democracy is a form of governance that is based on the will of the people. It requires a certain set of values and principles to be in place to ensure that it functions as it should. These include free and fair elections, separation of powers, a free and independent press, civil society, education, transparency and accountability, and a respect for human rights. By upholding these values, we can ensure that democracy functions properly and serves the needs of citizens.
