SOLUTION
The Characteristics of democracy are:
1) Elected representative : The people among themselves elect representatives who would govern them.
2) Civil liberties : Civil liberties such as freedom of speech, expression, etc are provided to the people.
3) Independent judiciary : The judiciary is free from the control of the executive and hence results in a more democratic resolution of disputes.
4) Organised opposition party : An organised opposition party is an essential part of the democracy as it keeps a check on the government.
5) Rule of law : Rule of law prevails in a democracy and no one is above the law. The law is supreme and all citizens are equal in the eyes of the law.
