In a democracy leaders are elected by the people and political decisions are decided by said leaders and voters, In a dictatorship the Dictator is either elected in a democracy and changes the government into a dictatorship or assumes power by overthrowing the last government. In a Dictatorship almost everything is decided by the dictator with no civilian representation in the government.
