There are two types of democracies majorly:

Every member of the society participates directly in the decision-making process. It is feasible when the number of people is less, but it isn’t a very feasible if the number of people is large.

All members of the society vote for leaders to represent them in the decision making and actions of the political process. It is a feasible option when the number of people is very large.

 

In a democratic country, people with the right to vote can vote for the party and the politicians they want to represent them in political decision-making at the national, regional and local level. The politicians or parties that receive the most votes, i.e. a majority of the votes, are those that are allowed to have the biggest say in decision-making.

The elected politicians represent the voters and are the system is therefore called representative democracy. Representative democracies are now a common form of government in the world.

What is monarchy?

A monarchy is a form of government in which total sovereignty is invested in one person, a head of state called a monarch, who holds the position until death or abdication. Monarchs usually both hold and achieve their position through the right of hereditary succession (e.g. they were related, usually the son or daughter, of the previous monarch), although there have been elective monarchies, where the monarch holds the position after being elected: the papacy is sometimes called an elective monarchy.
