Hello, Tessa! Welcome to Quick Quiz, Here is the first question: "Who is involved in Direct democracy? Who is involved in Representative democracy?"
I believe that in Direct democracy, people can vote directly for what they want; they are the ones involved. In Representative democracy the citizens vote on representatives to vote on their behalf.
"What is the difference between Direct democracy and Representative democracy?"
Representative democracy is when a representative is elected to represent a group of citizens on behalf of their votes. Direct Democracy is when people directly vote as individuals.
"When did Direct democracy begin? When did Representative democracy begin?"
Direct democracy began around 500 B.C. and Representative democracy began around 508 B.C.
"Where did Direct democracy begin? Where is Representative democracy used today?"
Direct democracy began in Athens, Greece. Representative democracy is used today in places like Switzerland, Uruguay, Canada, the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
Wow, Tessa! You're doing fantastic! You only have 2 questions left. "Why did Direct democracy happen? Why is it best for Representative democracy to be used today?"
Direct democracy happened because of how the Ancient Athenians voted their government to be this way. The citizens did not nominate representatives to vote for them; they voted as individuals, which is how we got Direct democracy. It is best for Representative democracy to be used today so that representatives that have experience in the government state can bring up the votes to the officials and principals.
