"As we approach the 2024 national elections in South Africa, participatory democracy becomes even more crucial in our endeavour to establish a fair and all-encompassing society. These elections serve as a significant opportunity for us, as conscientious citizens and leaders, to actively engage in shaping the future of our nation.
Participatory democracy plays a vital role as a fundamental pillar in our pursuit of creating a just and inclusive society. It goes beyond the traditional concept of representative democracy, where elected officials make decisions on behalf of the people. Instead, participatory democracy emphasises the active involvement and direct engagement of citizens in the decision-making processes that shape their lives." (Daily Maverick)
