ABSTRACT:
Democracy rests on the principle that all sane people should have an equal share in shaping their country’s laws. The representative or parliamentary form of democracy whith whoich we have been so familiar and which has stood the test of the time for centuries is now increasingly getting challenged by the new wave of direct democracy. This paper attempts to understand the contents, nuances and variations of direct democracy as they have emerged from the days of Athens to contemporary times. We also look at some of the obvious pros and cons of the experiments with direct democracy and how t is poised in today’s world to meet the problems and opportunities of our political life.
