  4. The basic premise of democracy is the idea of consent, i.e. the desire, approval, and participation of the people of the country in the formation of the government and its functioning. The individual or the citizen is the most important person and all government institutions need to have the trust of the citizens.
  5. In a democracy, the government is formed after elections. After the elections, a list is prepared which indicates the winner of each Lok Sabha seat. These winners become the Members of Parliament (MPs). The political party with the majority of these MPs forms the government. Since there are 543 seats in Lok Sabha, a party must secure at least half i.e. 272 seats in Parliament to form a government. Sometimes, no single political party is able to win 272 seats on its own and get the majority to form the government. In that situation, two or more political parties with similar concerns join together to get the majority and form a Coalition Government.
