Elections stop being perceived by the society as a real mechanism of influencing the state policy and decision-making. In addition, one of the fundamental principles of democracy, i.e. the possibility of will-expression through mass-meetings and acts of protest, and the former confidence (as well as experience) of the society in this possibility is eliminated.
