Democracy is seen to be good in principles but not in practice because of the following reasons :
(i) The decision making process in democracy is time-taking, whereby justice delayed is justice denied.
(ii) The tyranny of the majority overrides the will of the minority.
(iii) Corruption and red-tapism dominates the functioning of democracies.
(iv) An illiterate and uninformed electorate fails to give itself a legitimate and accountable government.
(v) The role of charismatic leaders and dynastic politics dominates political cultures.
