Write an essay to answer the following question:
‘Democracy is when the people rule the country.’ Critically assess whether this statement
constitutes an adequate description of modern democracy. Provide evidence with reference to
the politics of Hong Kong.
How should you interpret this question?
This question is based on Politics Units 3, 5 and 6.
It tests your understanding of the various versions of democracy, and expects you to contrast
the direct democracy in ancient city-states with the representative democracy of modern
times. You are required to state clearly your view regarding this statement on democracy.
Pay attention to the values and institutional settings in representative democracy, such as
legitimacy, accountability, civil rights protection, electoral mechanisms and policy-making
procedures. Then, you need to explain to what extent Hong Kong fits the criteria stated, and
judge in what ways the polity of Hong Kong can be considered democratic and representative.
Please place your discussion in an analytical framework, rather than presenting it in a purely
descriptive manner. You are encouraged to go beyond the course materials in answering this
