Conclusion

This book illustrates that no governmental system can represent a perfect embodiment of people’s power. The voice of the people, their proper representation in government, the separation of powers between legislative, executive and judicial branches, the accountability of the rulers and the transparency of the government are all well-established positive postulates, but they are always nuanced in historical and cultural specifics. Democracy has different meanings for different communities, and it is certainly not without deficiencies as a mode of ruling. Yet there seems to be little normative alternative. As Winston Churchill once said, “Democracy is the worst form of government except all other forms that have been tried from time to time.”
