1. Challenge of expansion would include political reforms that would ensure basic principles of democracy at every level. For example, Right to Information Act ensures the people know about the proceedings of the government.
2. Challenges of deepening democracy can call for political reforms that would strengthen the participation of the ordinary citizens so that power doesn’t remain in the hands of the influential.
3. Challenges to democracy are not fixed just like political reforms are fixed. But both support certain principles like the division of power, representation of the citizens and follow of democratic principles of equality and justice. For example, Nepal’s struggle for democracy.
