Advantages of representative democracy

  • Advantages of representative democracy
    • Elected representatives are expected to use expert knowledge over emotional conclusions
    • Representatives of different parties can mediate the different interests of society and different groups within society
    • Can protect minorities from the 'tyranny of the majority'
    • The demands of different sections of the public are usually incoherent and don't add up to a logical programme of policy
      • Representatives can collate and convert them into a better plan
