In class 2 we have been finding out all about democracy.

The British Parliament, like many other Parliaments around the world, is based on a system called 'democracy'.

But what exactly is democracy?

Democracy means that ordinary people have a say in what the Government does. It's a system that allows voters to decide how their country or community should be run, and who should represent them.
