Understanding the essence of democracy in the context of principles

Citizens have a responsibility to uphold and support these principles.
A representative democracy is an indirect democracy where sovereignty is held by the people representatives. A liberal democracy is a representative democracy with protection for individual liberty and property by rule of law, a democratic system of government in which individual rights and freedoms are officially recognized and protected, and the exercise of political power is limited by the rule of law. It emphasizes the separation of powers, an independent judiciary and a system of checks and balances between branches of government. There are many principles that characterize liberal democracy.
For example – рarticipation of citizens. Democracy allows the people a voice in choosing their government and their future. In representative democracy, it means they get to choose who represents them and have a free voice to express their opinions and desires. Citizen participation is the foundation that makes democracy strong.Participation is more than just a right – it is a duty. There are lots of different kinds of participation including: voting, debating issues, protesting against the government, paying taxes, and serving on juries.
