Democracy is the best form of government because it represents the will of the majority, forces the government represents to think of the masses who will elect them only if they perform to their needs and not to their own vested agenda’s. People have thrown away the governments who were not delivering to the demands of the public. The demands of the public are concerning health, education, basic rights, liberty of expression and employment, etc. Human development is the most important factor of democracy and democracies ought to deliver on this.

The hospitals should be reformed according to the emerging needs and should be made transparent to the public.
