- 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
