Why did S Vietnam's leader refuse to hold democratic elections?

South Vietnam is technically still controlled by North Vietnam so they are communists which is the opposite of democracy. Since North Vietnam wants to stay in control, a North Vietnam leader is chosen to be the leader of South Vietnam so all of Vietmnam would refuse to hold democratic elections since they are both communists basically, even though most of South Vietnam wants to be democratic. Answer. South Vietnam's leader refused to hold elections in 1956 after the agreed partition of Vietnam in 1954 even though elections were part of the agreement signed by both parties in Geneva. The agreement was for elections in North and South Vietnam but it was considered at the time by the South Vietnam government that, such was Ho Chi Minh's hold on the north, any elections could not be democratic there and as there were so many sympathisers for the north in South Vietnam, President Ngo Dinh Diem felt he would loose an election.
