Theatrical Democracy and France Presidential Election

Abdullah Murat Tuncer [9]

Abstract: While the turnout rate in the second round of the election was 34.3 percent, 65.7 percent of registered voters did not vote. The recent elections in France raise serious concerns for the future of democracy. The same was true of the Brexit elections. Are citizens voting less important than their tax payments? To live and maintain democracy, a significant majority of voters must vote, such as at least 70%. Otherwise, it means the theater of democracy or theatrical democracy rather than democracy. In a Democracy, the opinion of the majority should matter, not the majority of the voters. Moreover, democracies are regimes where the rights of the minority, not only the majority, should be protected. Democracies should not be the tyranny of the majority.

Keywords: France Presidential Election, Democracy, Theater of Democracy, Citizenship, Elections, Ballot in Europe, Theatrical Democracy
