What Is an Elite Democracy?

Answer

The Elite Democracy theory states that a small group or minority, consists of members of the economic elite and policy-planning networks, have the most power and that this power is independent of a state's democratic elections process. Which means that elections can be easily cheated and people can't do anything. This is just a theory and not based on facts.
