Within Ecosystem City® one of the main cycles on society level is that of democracy. A cycle is a closed process, where the final and initial state of the system is the same.

Democracy is the cycle where the people, the citizens, the inhabitants of a municipality, province, country or federation elect their representatives and give them the mandate to form a government which can take care for the common good, the public domain.

The cycle, in a majority of countries is repetitive every 4 to 6 years. Before every new election an evaluation is or has to be part of the process to make-up the balance in promises and predication and to possibly make new choices. True evaluation in general though in general is not favourite by sitting or possibly outgoing representatives and kept low profile.
