DEMOCRATIC INSTABILITY

Introduction

Democratic instability is not lack of democracy but having a democracy that is not stable;
it can be referred to as a weak democracy. Democracy means a government system where every
citizen is considered an eligible member of the state and is represented by the elected member.
The citizen has the right to choose the member who they feel comfortable that will represent
them in the way they desire or according to their needs. Political instability comes in when the
country is a multiparty state and the winning party forms the government. The winning parties
always have the majority and mostly they consist of the majority ethnic groups.
The majority group could also belong to a particular ideology, economic classes or even
belonging to a particular political or military philosophy. In whichever case, there is always a
minority group that feels the government is not considering them and this leads to democratic
instability. Democratic instability can lead to the rise of grievances by the citizens who feel
oppressed. Europe by the beginning of the Second World War was faced by various
dictatorships. Very few countries kept democracy during this time. The countries around
Germany seriously restricted political freedom so that they could ensure that Germany did not
invade their country because when the German troops who were with weapons passed through
their territory they would always bring chaos in the stable countries (Mann, 2004).
Only three countries attempted democracy, Sweden, Denmark, and Switzerland. These
countries could hold a free election but they were always restricted by the dictatorship of the
fascists. The United Kingdom had no outside pressure disturbing its government thus it remained
the only free country but still Oswald Mosley’s a fascist had restricted censorship and oppressed
the opposing ideas and views. Thus we can conclude that there was no complete democracy even
