15 September 2011 - International Day of Democracy

The UN General Assembly in 2007 with the general resolution A/62/7  encouraged Governments to strengthen national programmes devoted to the promotion and consolidation of democracy, and also decided that 15 September of each year should be observed as the International Day of Democracy.
The2011's theme will focus on the role of Parliaments in dealing with people's needs and requests and a number of events will be organized by the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
The 2011 celebration is very important also in relation to the protests for democracy and more freedom which  united people in a number of Arabic countries.
