Philippine Democracy Assessment: Free and Fair Elections and the Democratic Role of Political Parties
This book critically examines two indicators of Philippine democracy, namely, elections and political parties. It looks closely at the democratic principles and values of participation, authorization, representation, accountability, transparency, responsiveness, and solidarity as these coalesce into the Philippine electoral institutions. The assessment powerfully scrutinizes these universal principles of democracy as they are embedded in a complex web of politics and culture, which makes reforms challenging indeed. Democrats and scholars of democracy will find this book worthwhile.
