SECTION B (50 MARKS)

4. Read the following passage carefully and then answer the questions that follow:

A non-democratic government is a form of government that normally does not come into power by popular election. It is the government which gets into power without majority will and peoples legitimacy. In most cases, this government results from coup detat, manipulation of election process or changing a democratic government into dictatorship after a leader has attained power through elections. Adolf Hitler of Germany was an example of a person who led his country using dictatorship style. He had come to power through popular election eventually changed into a dictator thereafter.

In this kind of leadership only one person or a small group of people who are either economically powerful or with many supporters control the government. Also they are responsible for decision making in the society. A good example of a non-democratic government is totalitarian like that of Hitler or Mussolini of Italy. Other examples of authoritarian or dictatorship governments are like those of former Zaire under Mobutu Seseseko and Uganda under Idd Amini. The basic feature of non-democratic governments is the absence of democratic principles.
