Is Australia a 100% democracy? No.<quoted text>
Only problem being that as a result of having a monarchs, Barefoot argues that countries are not democracies.
Is that the case for Australia? Are your Constitutions, parties and elections all meaningless?
The Commonwealth/Federation has its own constitution as do the states and they have their own G-Gs.
You cannot directly vote for the PM unless you are resident in their electorate. The parties decide who their candidate for PM is, even if you are a member of a party you do not get to say who the candidate for PM is unless you are 'connected'.
In the end the G-G decides if a potential government will be sworn in, not the voting public.
Although such situations have never caused problems, legally speaking this is true.
So you cannot say Australia is a democracy in classic terms, it may have democratic principles but is not a democratic state.
