World marks International Day of Democracy Today

Today is International Day of Democracy.

On the occasion of International Democracy Day, UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon has reiterated the need for governments to rededicate themselves to the tenets of democracy, respect and dignity for all.

He draws attention to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, which in his view must be underpinned by a strong and active civil society that includes the weak and the marginalised.
