Winston Churchill said “It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.”
in my opinion, i accept that even the election is not all of democracy, but without it, the prerequisite of democracy cannot be.
however; i think deputation or nomination cannot be democracy, never be related any way, any how. and whom put that as democracy, they are just liars.
there are no need for prerequisite on democracy more than respect, if you have no respect on people opinion, there is nothing be called democracy, it’s nothing there.
