The official definition of a representative democracy says governments must represent a broad range of interests and needs, including people who don’t share the same religion or social class.
In practice, governments often do the opposite: they often make policies that benefit a tiny minority of citizens and benefit their own elite.
The idea of representative governments is often taken for granted, but there is some doubt as to whether it actually works.
How is representative government defined?
The idea that governments should be accountable to a broader range of people than the ruling elites is not an uncommon one.
It was the basis of the modern European Union, which was founded by the European Parliament in 1973.
However, in the past decade or so, some political scientists and social scientists have questioned the idea of a parliamentary democracy and suggested instead that the idea should be seen as an inclusive democracy, or a representative republic.
The European Parliament was the first such institution, and has since become a part of the European Union.
The first constitution in the modern era The European Union was established in 1949, when the country of the newly independent Czechoslovakia had a democratic transition and the Soviet Union was defeated in World War II.
At the time, it was a parliamentary republic.
After the Czechoslovak transition, the country was transformed into a republic under the Treaty of Trianon.
In the 1990s, the parliament elected the current leaders of the countries of the EU.
They are not elected by popular vote, but by a series of rounds of voting called a “presidential election”.
The parliament then decides the prime minister and other members of the cabinet, who have the power to change the constitution and the rules of government.
At this point, it’s up to the governments to decide what laws they want to implement.
The current prime minister, Petr Necas, has been elected in 2017.
He has been in power since 2018, and he has a majority in parliament.
Necas’ government has been popular, although it has failed to deliver major reforms, like reforming the public sector.
Some countries with representative governments, like Greece, have been successful at implementing the reforms they’ve made.
Other countries with less-popular governments, such as Hungary and Finland, have also tried to implement reform.
How does representative democracy work?
The term representative democracy refers to the concept that governments have a responsibility to represent the majority of the people, regardless of their religion or class.
The principle is that governments must give the people what they want, and in the end, they should not be able to dictate what people should be allowed to do.
In theory, representative democracy should be a good thing.
For instance, it could help to lower crime rates, provide health care for everyone and alleviate poverty, says Andrew O’Brien, a political scientist at the University of Southampton.
But there are some limits.
Most recently, in March 2017, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that Hungary violated the right to equal protection of the law by implementing a series (mostly cosmetic) changes to the country’s constitution.
In a landmark decision, the court ruled that the constitution was a “representative” and thus could not be changed.
The decision was made by the Hungarian Constitutional Tribunal, which is made up of judges appointed by the government.
It has since been accused of politicizing the judiciary, as it is appointed by and is not subject to the rule of law.
What should I know about representative democracy?
Representation is a concept that is deeply rooted in European history, O’Briensays.
In ancient Rome, for instance, the term was used to refer to the political representation of the senate and the lower house of parliament, and it meant that all the members of a government had a say in the composition of a parliament.
As the 19th century progressed, the idea that a government could make decisions for the people by choosing a group of elected representatives was seen as a way to represent their wishes and concerns.
It is no surprise that the term representative has gained popularity in recent years, as social media has allowed for greater political participation.
The concept of representative democracy is also seen in other Western democracies, such to the United States, Australia and Canada.
In Australia, representatives have a lot to fear from the populist right, which has called for a return to the monarchy.
It’s not just in Australia, however.
In 2016, the UK’s Conservative Party was forced to withdraw from the European elections because it did not abide by the “representation clause” in its electoral laws.
The term is also used in Australia’s new Brexit government, which wants to repeal the countrys European Union membership.
How can you help?
Representational democracy is not a new concept in the United Kingdom.
In 2004, the then prime minister John Major used the term “republican republic” to describe his government’s policy towards the UK.
In Britain, the government is expected to negotiate new EU membership terms with Brussels.
The prime minister is also
