Summary/Abstract: The essence of democracy is to enable citizens to participate in the decision-making process. In order to actively participate in the process of democratic decision-making, it is necessary to have an own view on certain issues. Based on the freely formed and expressed attitude of contemporary democracy, they ensure a consistent and clear application of the will of citizens in the process of making key political decisions. Bosnia and Herzegovina faces great challenges today. Citizens do not have the possibility to exercise passive voting rights under equal conditions. Normed human rights and freedoms are not exercised in practice. Citizens do not have a developed political culture and in a kind of vicious circle that is a consequence of material endangerment do not engage in political processes.The paper analyzes elements that influence the impossibility of carrying out socio-political processes in a democratic spirit, in a way that fits modern democratic countries.
