Democracy means equal participation in decision making. The idea of democracy says that every member of the society has an equal say in deciding the government which would rule over them.
In organizations like United Nations, if there are only a few countries which possess the power to take decisions which are binding on other nations as well then surely it is not going to be a democratic way of taking and implementing decisions.
The five countries, USA, China, Russia, France, and the United Kingdom, have been given special powers in the making decisions related to war and peace and these countries are called five permanent members in the Security Council. Any decision taken by Council can be made invalid or rejected by the intervention of even any one of these five countries. Sometimes they have also used their power to force the UN to bend to their dictates. Often the great powers can be seen imposing their decisions on the other developing and underdeveloped countries for their own sake. Hence the idea of democracy by these powers is left behind in order to pursue goals and policies meant for their development only.
Each and every country has its own issues which should be solved on every cost and democratically. Those countries, developing or underdeveloped, should be considered before imposing the decision on it so that the problem and obstacles can be solved to the maximum extent possible.
Hence only a few countries should not have to say in decision making for the democratic functioning of the institution.
