"Democracy is becoming the first choice of the people of South Asia." Justify the statement.
Despite the mixed record of the democratic experience, the people in South Asia share the aspiration for democracy. A recent survey showed that there is widespread support for democracy in the South Asian countries. Ordinary citizens view the idea of democracy positively and support the institutions of representative democracy. They prefer democracy over any other form of democracy. It was earlier believed that democracy could flourish and find support only in prosperous countries. In that sense, the South Asian experience of democracy has expanded the global imagination of democracy.
