Democratic values cannot be sustained and defended otherwise than through democratic and liberal leadership as an educational goal and political principle that does not allow us to use people as mere tools for our domination. This goal and principle is a potent reminder of the priority of free, fair elections and representation over power politics and domination of cliques.  Democracy is far from a sort of “democratorship” whose sole essence is revealed in the “50 + 1” logic. Instead, it appears in fundamental respect for minorities, clearly understanding that political majority is nothing but a constantly changing coalition of minorities. In a working democracy, a long-term, unchangeable, and fixated majority simply does not exist. For this reason, democracy is hardly possible not only without smooth and transparent transition of power, but without consulting and cooperating with all moderate political forces, including one’s own opponents.
