  • fair and free elections ... ( oppurtunity for ol )
  • citizens are allowed to rebuke the govt. if the law-making isn 't just ..ppl. too have their voice in the law and decision makin thru protests ..
  • Fair disturbtion of goods when it comes to govt. welfare schemes as ol citizens can acess to ol the schemes and programmes implemented by the govt.

no democracy doesnt lead to a just distributon of goods and oppurtunities among its people as there are lots of economic inequalities among the  people . the country's national income is concentrated in the hands of a few elite while the poor have nothing to depend upon . democracy just ensures political equality and not economic equality,,

hope it helps..:)

 no ,   it doesnt lead to just distribution of goods and opportunities

1 it also leads to distribution of people and leads to social n economic inequalities

2 some ultra rich people enjoy huge facilities  , wealth n have good share in total income

3 whereas the people at bottom level  are poor n unwealthy and even feel difficult to make medical , schooling etc .  facilities available for them  ......

in bangladesh half of the country lives in poverty and in many under developed countries people get food from foreign food supplies 

hence it has lead to distribution of people not only goods and opportunities

 In actual life, we find that democracy does not lead to just distribution of goods and

opportunities.
Arguments:
1. Although individuals have political equality, we find growing economic inequalities.
2. A small number of ultra-rich enjoy a highly disproportionate show of wealth and incomes.
3. The income of those at the bottom of the society is declining so much so that it becomes
difficult to meet their basic needs, such as food, clothing, housing etc.

Although the poor constitute a large proportion of voters, yet democratically elected governments do not provide them opportunities on equal footing. 3x1=
