Explain ‘the challenge of expansion of democracy’ by stating three points.
Most of the established democracies face the challenge of expansion.
- Challenge of expansion involves applying the basic principles of democratic government across all the regions, different social groups and various institutions.
- Ensuring greater power to local governments, extension of federal principle to all the units of the federation. Women and minority groups etc. fall under this category of challenge.
- This means, less and less decisions should remain outside the arena of democratic control.
- Most countries including India and USA face this challenge.
