In a democratic society, the power ultimately lies with the people. Elected officials are put in place to serve the public and make decisions that reflect the will of the people. However, it is crucial to understand that democracy is not a one-way street. Those who hold positions of power must be held accountable for their actions, and citizens have the right to question and challenge those in authority.
Unfortunately, there are those who misunderstand the nature of democracy and believe that once an individual or party is elected, they have the right to make decisions without any opposition or questioning. This is not the case. In fact, democracy is designed to be adversarial. The very foundation of a parliamentary democracy is built on the concept of opposition and protest. The role of opposition parties is to challenge the decisions and actions of those in power, and this is an essential aspect of ensuring that the government is held accountable.
In a healthy democracy, citizens have the right to express their opinions and concerns, and they should feel free to do so without fear of retribution. Peaceful protest and civil disobedience are important tools in holding those in power accountable. It is only through these means that people can have their voices heard and influence the decisions that affect their lives.
