In a democracy, political equality is ensured means that even the poorest and the least educated have the same status as that of the rich and educated and everyone has an equal right, no person can be denied of their right on any basis.
Social equality is when nobody is ill-treated or discriminated on the basis of caste, creed, colour.
Economic equality is when people do not starve in poverty, and everyone has basic amenities of life.
So, providing socio-economic equality is more important than ensuring political equality. A person who does not get food for living and house to live in would never be interested in getting political equality because for him/her satisfying his/her basic needs is a priority. So, giving equal right to vote would be of waste.
Hence political equality is always followed by socio-economic equality.
