  Highlight six characteristics of a democratic government



                     This question was popular and straightforward. So, most candidates who
                      attempted it performed well and they scored good marks. However,
                      some candidates unfortunately dwelt on mere mentioning of the points
                      without elaborate explanation of their ideas and scored low marks.

                       high marks:

                        (i)         There should be majority rule.
(ii)        Tolerance of opposition.
(iii)       Protection of minority interest.
(iv)       provision and guaranteeing of Fundamental Human Rights.
(v)        Respect for the rule of law.
