From what I understand, a direct democracy is just like a democratic republic but without the middle people. In other words, instead of voting for people who vote for people to vote for people, you vote directly, so I think a president rules but the way of voting is different.

Everybody. Direct democracy means you vote directly on the issues instead of through representatives.
