Democracy is not magical solution for all problems. Democracy has many defects. Eventhough it ensures people the right to take their own decisions, it does not guarantee that all descisions will be good. Since so many people are consulted their will be a delay in descision making. A democratic government is unstable as there is constant change in leadership. Electoral competition leads to corruption. therefore we can conclude that democracy is not a magical solution to all problems but is better than other forms of government.

A democratic government is considered to be an achievement of the modern world. It is better than many other forms of government, like the other forms of government it also have some problems but does not possess a magical solution for all of them. To support the statement i would like to provide some of the points -
 (1) It has not ended poverty in countries in 60 years in many parts of the world.
 (2) Democracy as a form of government only ensures people to take their decisions but doesn.t guarantee that those will be good. People can make mistakes even the people involved in decision making process who doesn't know the best interest of the people.
(3) It leads to frequent changes in the government so representatives can't work with a fearless hand.
(4) In democracy ruling party pressurise even journalist and judges.
(5) Politicians don't care for nations they think only for self interest.
