Of course! But let's start with something to eat. What would you like?
Hi, could you tell me what democracy is? I have a I&S homework that should be finish tomorrow and I really don’t understand what democracy is.
Democracy is a popular system of governance. That means that you are allowed to vote for what you want to change in your society.
Thats interesting, tell me more!
Now we are in Athens in Greece. It was here every thing started with democracy. The word "demokratia" is greek and means "role of the people".
Women and slaves were not allowed to vote at that time. Crazy, isn't it?
Oh! I did not know that.
Okey, listen here. Direct democracy is the first type, that means that people living in the country can make decisions on the laws. For example, people in a country vote yes or no to join EU. The second type is representative democracy, that means that people vote for persons that will make a change in the country.
Do you know that there are two types of democracy?
No I don't.
Free and fair elections means that you can vote on what you like without cheating. Individuals and human rights are respected that means that people can talk and vote on what they like.
Would you like to hear some important parts of democracy?
Okey, thank you so much for explaining what democracy is. Let's go home.
