Upside down government

In a typical democratic election the political parties present a set of policies that they want to implement and try to persuade the electorate to vote for them. They see themselves at the top and the voters beneath them. That’s upside down government.

If the voters really had some kind of say then a set of policies considered important to the electorate would set the agenda and the political parties would effectively make a case that they were best able to deliver. The voters would be on top and the politicians serving them.
