Democracy is better than any other form of government. It gives equal rights and freedom to every individual. But also, he has some demerits. Let's take a look at some of them. 

Here are the demerits of democracy:

 1. Unstable Government Many political parties are allowed to criticize the government and its policies. Sometimes this leads to the fall of the ruling party and re-election in the country. This gives instability to the government.

 2. A slow and inefficient government. The most common demerit of democracy is that its functioning is slow. The decision-making process involves lengthy debates and deliberations in Parliament. It takes a long time before decisions are made.

 3. Incompetence Democracy gives every individual the right to express his concern. Therefore, everything the world focuses on personal interests and not on collective interests. This sometimes leads to incompetent and erroneous selections of government candidates.

 4. Role of Money in a Democracy Money plays an important role in elections. It takes a lot of money to organize demonstrations, public meetings and speeches. These candidates are chosen in the elections, who can raise a lot of money for the party.
