Elections are the most important tool of indirect democracy through which people elect their representatives who in turn make laws for them. This requires a mechanism by which people can choose their representatives at regular intervals and change them if they wish to do so. This mechanism is called an election. Therefore, elections are considered essential in our times for any representative democracy. In an election the voters make many choices:
- They can choose who will make laws for them.
- They can choose who will form the government and take major decisions.
- They can choose the party whose policies will guide the government and law making
