Youth can play a coordinative role to ensure people’s participation and transparency in democratic society. Youth can play a leading role in the assurance of human right of all citizen and progress of an individual, society and whole nation. Since youth can easily adhere to different knowledge, skills, and concept, the government shall intake youth in the mainstream as a supporting element. Everyone’s voice and will is addressed dignifiedly only in a democratic environment. To strength democracy into a more strong, beautiful and people-centric governance system, the youth shall be provided with inclusive opportunities and those opportunities shall be invested in democratization. If and only youth get the opportunity to lead and contribute on transparency, accountability and good governance of society, democracy in the real sense can be achieved.
