Question

You are living in a democratic country called X. You choose your representatives through free and fair elections. However, a law has been passed recently that prohibits women to vote in the forthcoming elections. In other words, a democratic government has nullified women's right to vote. Legal experts say the law is unconstitutional.

As a citizen, which of the following options would you choose to peacefully oppose the law and express your dissent?


A
Conduct a coup d'état to overthrow the government.
loader
B
Conduct re-elections to replace the existing government.
loader
C
Organise public protests asking the government to repeal the law.
loader
D
Organise an insurrection against the government.

Solution

The correct option is B Organise public protests asking the government to repeal the law.
In this case, protests are the most viable method for citizens to voice their dissent. Protests are a peaceful form of expressing discontent or resistance in a democracy. In a healthy democracy, the government must listen to protestors and enter negotiations.
