Interest groups refers to an organized group of people in a population that pushes for a given point of interest or opinion on public matters like political motion. The 21st century has seen rapid uprising of interest groups on several matters including political, social, environmental, health activities among others. On the other hand, social movement is an organized group of people whose motive is to resist or change social status in a civilization (Ibarra, 19). Representative democracy is a governmental setting in which citizens elect eligible persons to hold legislative public offices and represent them on political matters. Both social and interest groups play many roles on representative democracy over years.
