dc.description.abstractEnglish: The concept of democracy places the power to choose in the hands of the majority of a country’s voters over the age of eighteen and of sound mental health. Inherent in ideal democratic choices is a proper grasp of the issues on which decisions have to be taken, followed by the exercising of choices. A democratic choice is well-nigh impossible if the voter is confronted with issues couched in a language which he is unable to decode. In South Africa, ideal democracy, inclusive of the majority of citizens, will only begin to emerge when (and if) African languages are used across the entire political landscape.en_ZA

dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Die begrip van demokrasie plaas die besluitnemingsmag in die hande van die meerderheid van die kiesers wat ouer as agtien jaar is en wie se geestesgesondheid nie bevraagteken kan word nie. ’n Inherente aspek van ideale demokratiese keuses is ’n behoorlike begrip van kwessies waaroor besluite geneem moet word; hierna volg die uitoefening van daardie keuses. ’n Demokratiese keuse is haas onmoontlik indien die kieser gekonfronteer word met kwessies wat verskuil gaan in ‘n taal wat hy/sy nie kan dekodeer nie. In Suid-Afrika sal ’n ideale demokrasie, wat die meerderheid burgers insluit, slegs te voorskyn kan tree wanneer (en indien) die Afrikatale oor die hele politieke spektrum gebruik word.en_ZA
