Variable V193: Representative vs. direct

Literal Question


Two people talk about different forms of democracy. Which of these two opinions rather expresses what you think?

The first opinion:
'I am in favour of a representative democracy, i.e. with partliamentary elections by the people and political decision-making by the parliament, which also accepts the responsibility for these decisions. In most cases the members of parliament have more information.'

The other opinion:
'I am in favour of a direct democracy, i.e. that as much political decisions as possible are made in referendums. This way decisions are made in the interest of the people'.
