Participatory democracy is the process of collective decision making combined with elements from both direct and representative democracy. Citizens have the power to choose on which policy proposals arise, and politicians choose the role of the policy that will be implemented. Whereas representative democracy is a type of democracy founded on the principle of elected officials representing a group of individuals, as opposed to direct democracy. Participatory democracies create opportunities for everyone to make a contribution to the decision making. It usually does not tend to assume a lack of time, knowledge or will in an individual citizen to contribute towards policy making. It is a wide ranged political theory that also incorporates many and strives to create a political system that allows people to participate in politics in a direct manner. Representative democracies represent the most successful democracies in larger populations, it tends to show more efficient ruling. It is both presidential system and parliamentary system of a government where larger democracies usually follow. The united states represent representative democracy the best. People in the USA vote for elected officials who create laws, but they don’t create laws or vote for them directly themselves. It’s a Federation of states that share local governments and a strong central government. Such as the states are equal among a group that consists of the federal government. The structure and power source are defined by a certain legal constitution, a legal document with policies and limits by what a state is governed which states it is constitutional. It represents representative republic or representative democracy. Yes, two democracies can co-exist, because participatory democracy is the combination of both direct and representative democracy. Participatory democracy is not the same as direct and thus it is not in conflict with representative democracies. Participatory democracy is distinguished from a direct democracy by its belief that a citizen must participate in public policy-making, and not just consulted on the acceptance of certain bills. Whereas representation also exists but it is limited to certain delegations only.
