Best Answer

The reality was that Pericles steered Athens into a radical democracy where the people met in assembly and made the decisions. They were the government. Between fortnightly assembly meetings, an elected council of 50 carried out the decisions of the assembly.

Pericles called himself 'First Citizen' and had to persuade the people in assembly to approve any proposals he put forward. Others also put forward proposals to the assembly in parallel of competition. Pericles won some, lost some. He did not rule. That's what the democracy was all about - demos = people kratos = power - people power.
