Reader feedback: Very little choice

Re: No handshaking between ruling partners, Volume 11, Number 11, March 21-March 27, 2005

We have got four parties that formed a coalition. Apart from leaning to the right, they have very little in common.

Democratic government should be by representatives who are elected by the people of a country, organized according to the principle that everyone has a right to be involved in making decisions and that everyone in a society is equally important, no matter how much money they have or what social class they come from.

What keeps these parties in power is very little choice the voters! Unfortunately the parties steer bills through parliament that are mostly beneficial to them. We have witnessed many such bills already.
