Challenges to Democracy

Question:

What are the challenges faced by democratic governments?

Answer:

Democratic governments face the challenge of expansion. The basic principle of a democratic government has to be established across all the regions, different social groups and various institutions. Greater power should be delegated to local governments. Federal principles have to be extended to all the units of the federation. Women and minority groups should be included in decision making. Strengthening of the institutions and practices of democracy should happen so that people can realise their expectations of democracy.
Different societies have different expectations from different democracies.So, each country has to deal in a unique way to face the challenge, people in that particular country face. If this is to be done peoples' participation is necessary and the control and influence of the rich and powerful people have to be toned down.
