Civics

In a ________ the government has to explain its actions and defend its decisions to the people.


ANSWER

Democracy


SOLUTION
Democracy.
Democracy ensures that decision making will be based on norms and procedures. The citizen can check whether the government is working in accordance with the correct procedures or not. They have the right to examine the process of decision making. This factor is often missing from the non-democratic government. This process of accountability and transparency is an essential feature of democracy, where the government has to explain its action and defend its decisions to the people.
