Abstract: Civil society has been revived over the last two decades. It has become one of the most attracted areas of study and become one of the key concepts in development, politics and international aid (McDuie-Ra 2009). The concept has gained particular significance as an attempt to analyse and instigate grass root democratisation through widespread political participation. In this context, the study attempts to understand how civil society works within the system of democracy especially within the purview of electoral politics. Elections have been defined as a mechanism where people can elect their representatives. Elections give power to the citizens and enable them to choose their representatives and enable them to take decisions on their behalf. Without elections, democracy cannot be based on wishes and aspirations of the citizens
