A country that has been under constant control from others finally has the chance of receiving real democracy. The only problem would be how far are the people of Antegria willing to go to receive it. Tyrants who didn’t see the importance of the civilians having a say so basically ran the governmental system before. Now there is an opportunity to allow citizens to freely voice their opinions. I don’t believe the people want to be ruled by one party that considered bias or mistrusting. I believe it would be beneficial to allow this country to be independent and work towards having a democracy that includes everyone regardless of ethnicity, age, gender etc.

One could ask what ethnicity has to do with anything but since there is 56% Antegrian I feel the results would be a tad skewed and not including the other ethnicities within the country.

I would not include the Electoral College because I believe it allows those who don’t deserve to win a chance to
