Democracy comes from which Greek word?


The term democracy is derived from two ancient Greek words, Demos, meaning people, and Kracia, implying to rule.

That is Demos + kracia = demoKracia, or people’s law.

Democracy is a type of government in which people directly exercise power or even have the option of choosing members from within themselves to form a governing body, contrasted with systems of government like absolute monarchy.
