Democratic country

21 September 2012, 12:08
As a democratic country, South African political parties should let the citizens select the leaders of their choice. In a democratic state, citizens' voice is heard by the government and/or the political parties in order for them to deliver that which is needed by them (citizens).

We cannot call ourselves a democratic country when the the ruling party is taking decisions on our behalf and/or without our concern. The country that practices this form of government is and will not be classified under democratic states.

Our ruling party ANC for example, only apply the rules or the characteristics of a democratic state when and only when it suits them and their pockets.

Not all citizens' wishes will be the same views and in favour of the president and the ruling party, thus I say the leader sometimes has to listen to us the ordinary citizens.  

It is time South Africa starts practicing democracy, not only in papers but also in normal living condition.
