PUBLIC ELECTION AS AN IMPORTANT PART OF DEMOCRACY

Abstrakt:

Public election is an important element of modern democracy. It is an achievement of democracy built on the State power sovereignty. This power is derived from the sovereignty of citizens, thus enabling citizens to participate in governance. Governance can be direct or indirect, based on a functioning system of regular free elections. The present article points to a change in preferences and degree of use of the right to participate in the presidential election as a voter. It also maps the current situation and expectations of Slovak citizens in relation to the new Head of State. For this purpose, we conducted an opinion survey in which we followed the respondents' attitude to the issue of the Head of state. Therefore, we try to draw conclusions from the results in this article.
