This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.
Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:
- Democracy means the leader in a party with the most votes is in control but they still have to answer to their political party and the voters.
- In a dictatorship there’s just one leader who has total control over the party and country.
- The speaker in parliament has the most important job because he has to control all 120 people in the beehive.
