== VETO ==
According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in FAVOUR."
According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the privilege of veto power. This power has been intensely controversial since the drafting of the UN Charter in 1945. The United States and Russia would probably NOT ACCEPTED the creation of the United Nations WITHOUT the veto privilege. Fifty years later, the debate on the existence and use of the veto continues, reinvigorated by many cases of veto-threat as well as actual veto use."
== DEMOCRACY ==
According to Democracy Building, the key elements of democracy are:
- Guarantee of basic HUMAN RIGHTS to EVERY INDIVIDUAL person vis-à-vis the state and its authorities as well as vis-à-vis any social groups (especially religious institutions) and vis-à-vis other persons
- Separation of Powers between the institutions of the state
- Freedom of opinion, speech, press and massmedia
- Religious liberty
- General and EQUAL RIGHT to vote (one person, one vote)
- Good Governance (focus on public interest and absence of corruption)
Could you find the basic differences between the two words above? Whether the veto right still relevance in present era and future? Whatever your answer, yes or no, please give your opinion with the polite words. Personally I will answer "no", how with you?
