What are some examples of plebiscite democracy

Direct democracy

DD (also: plebiscitary democracy) describes a democratic form of rule in which the political decisions are made directly by the people (eg in popular assemblies and by referendum (referendum / referendum)) and only the execution and implementation of the decision of an authority be left. Basic maxim of the d. D. is to let the will of the people flow into political decisions as unadulterated as possible. A distinction must be made between two variants: a) the aspirations of the (socialist) council systems and b) the model of the d. D. in Switzerland (CHE). Furthermore, direct democratic elements (referendum, referendum or referendum, etc.) are provided in various constitutions and laws (e.g. German federal states (federal state) and municipal codes; US federal states). The d. D. The CHE is characterized by the fact that, in addition to the direct democratic elements (popular initiative, referendum), there are also representative elements (e.g. parliaments) (therefore also called semi-direct democracy). The basic idea of ‚Äč‚Äčthis hybrid form is to give up the majority principle (representative democracy) in exchange for a much higher participation of minorities in the decision-making process, i. H. to strengthen the principle of comprehensive negotiations, the search for compromises and political exchanges.
