International Day of Democracy

“The Power to question is the basis of all human Progress”- Indira Gandhi


International Day of Democracy is observed on September 15th every year globally.

International Day of Democracy is observed globally to mark the importance of democracy and create awareness among people about democratic rights. The history of the International Day of Democracy dates back to the year 2007 when the United Nations General Assembly passed an Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) to observe the day. The first International Day of Democracy was celebrated on 15 September 2008. Equality is the foundation stone of democracy. People should be treated equally in any democratic country irrespective of their age, sex, gender, and social status. Equal rights are critical to democratic governance.

According to Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes the freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive, and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.” A democratic country is one where people have a say in everything that is happening in the country. No person or any higher authority has a right to suppress the voice of common people.
