Can of worms opened. What is a democracy? The US does not elect its head of state. It elects members of the College of Electors who do that. The UK and Australia do not elect the heads of their state either. They are monarchies. long live the Queen! They don't even elect their respective Prime Ministers. And the UK does not even have a formal document known as "The Constitution".

So, do we really want to dive down the rabbit hole of discussing what democracy is, or can we just accept that our nations adhere to some vague notion of democratic processes? At least all three I mentioned elect representatives of the respective lower houses by popular vote.
