It is the people's own government and keeps in mind the wishes and needs of the people. If the people do not find the working of the government efficient they can change the government. In a democratic form of government every party has an equal chance to win the election. Thus, we can say that every willing citizen has equal chances.

Elections do cost money; however, having a Republican Democracy is important and it is the most efficient form of government. This type of government allows its citizens to vote into office the leader that they feel will do the best job at the given time. This way, if there is a bad leader, he will not get re-elected.
When the voice of the people is allowed to rule over the decisions of a government established to govern that people it will, in most cases, provide the best form of government. There are times when a benevolent monarch would do well for the people, but his children are not likely to do so. Even a tyrant can be a good governmental leader, but again it isn't something that is likely to continue through generations. With a Republican Democracy there is the highest likelihood of continually successful governing of the people without loss of rights.
I believe that a Republican Democracy is the most efficient form of government, because it allows for debate and discussion, prior to elections and roles being filled in the government. It allows for a variety of opinions to develop and be worked on, instead of only one-sided power. People as a whole should have control over the government, and this allows for the government to determine in an efficient manner the needs and wants of the people.
Though we can vote for someone to represent us in the government, that does not mean that they will believe the same things we do, or do what we thought they would. Though it is unlikely to change I believe something such as an expanded, more people-oriented congress, could be implemented.
The Republican Democracy form of government is the most efficient when one considers that it presents a balance between the popular will and the services and work being performed by the government. Although other forms of government may seem or may have seemed in the past to be more efficient, by getting the participation of the people and giving them a meaningful voice, a Republican Democracy is better able to provide stability which is an important element of efficiency in the long run. Efficiency should be measured in the long run and across the board and not just in any single instant in time.
In this form of democracy there is total freedom to the people. There is no king, no queen. The whole power lies in the hands of the people. The politicians are also the servants of the people. Since giving the power to the people who are the real force, I support this.
The United States has a republican democracy, and it has grown to one of the wealthiest nations in history. Democracies tend to be more prosperous than dictatorships. The republic form of democracy counters the tendencies of democracies to degenerate into mob rule. The republican rules state that certain rights, such as freedom of religion, cannot be overturned. This example has been found in Turkey and Egypt, where secular democracy is being eroded by a population shifting to fanatical Islam - and Christians and religious minorities lose their rights in each election because of the popular will.
While there could be a better model of government, this one is the best we have had thus far since it ensures participation of the people in decisions that affect their lives. Of course there are flaws in the present system, like the outdated electoral college, but the idea of a government of, by, and for the people is still the ideal.
A liberal democracy works harder to guarantee the human rights of its citizens. I think they are often misconstrued to be in conflict with capitalism and financial prosperity but this is simply not the case, just because there is emphasis on justice and fairness, does not necessarily imply a communist regime dressed up in sheep's clothes.
Obscene inequality and injustice undermine democracy and stability (and all the other goodies that go with them), this has and will always be so; if people don't get that now then we are in more trouble than I originally suspected. No democracy will ever succeed or be exempt from serious threat in a world where there is such a tremendous gap between those who have and those who have not.
The most efficient government that ever existed was between 1933 and 1945. The principle of this government was the leadership principle. The country under this government was true to the name of efficiency, mustering the maximum amount of resources for its cause. The leader of this country was Adolf Hitler. Its cause was an evil cause. Germany, under her efficient leadership, sowed maximum evil. Be glad that our Republic Democracy restrains the government through inefficiency, or else we would suffer under a revolution with each passing President.
Winston Churchill said that democracy was the worst way to govern, except for all the rest. Democracy is inherently inefficient. It was designed that way by the founding fathers of our country. They did not want too much power to be placed in the hands of any ruler. A dictatorship is always a more efficient way to govern, but who would want to live under one?
While the Republican Democracy was once a great success, it has not led to true democracy in a very long time. Today, money plays an enormous role at all levels of government, and voters have very few options. If large amounts of money are required to make an impact on the government, then it is less efficient than forms of government in which citizens do not need to be wealthy to make a difference.
The most efficient form would be a dictatorship, because everything would get done fast and effectively, because all the choices are made by one person, instead of all decisions being put to a vote.
Our republican democracy form of government encourages debate and citizen input. These are two factors that slow the government's ability to respond to situations, or to make significant changes. There are other forms of government that are much more flexible, because they don't have the same elements of influence and input. Those elements were selected by our nation's founders, because they were valued more than efficiency was.
The Republican Democracy is not efficient by any means, but it is the most effective form of government. The Republican Democracy is slow to act as it gathers the voice of all the people, and it is cumbersome in doing so. It is, by design, conservative in the sense that changes require majority or greater acceptance. Yet it is the most effective form of government: This is true regarding the durability of shared decision-making, the guarantee of freedoms and the ascription of responsibility. This form claims the moral high ground on the basis of social ethics, particularly human rights. See especially Reinhold Neihbur's classic text, The Children of Light and the Children of Darkness.
While Republican Democracy may have a moral advantage, it is not very efficient. Elections are expensive, slow and encourages politics. Politics are necessary to be elected, but it does not automatically lead to the best decisions. Sometimes unpopular decisions are more efficient in the long run than an opportunistic, short-term decision.
