Last updated 26 Aug 2017

Representation, in a political sense, describes how some individuals will stand in for others, or groups of others, for a certain time period.

The term representation is normally referring to representative democracies, in which constituents elect an official who speaks for them in the legislature. 

Voting rights to select representatives in the government are generally only granted to citizens of that country, although some democracies have extended that to others.
