The concept of rule of law implies a legal system that is equal for all citizens, with precise and applied
mechanisms for control over its function and institutions that guarantee and implement the rule of law. Respect
for the rule of law concept is a key prerequisite for democracy and respect for human rights, as well as main
condition to enable institutional and procedural grounds for social inclusion of citizens.
A country is considered to be democratic if it offers equal opportunities for progress for everyone, provided
progress is based on just and defined criteria that are strictly applied and not on grounds of somebody’s power in
society or support by certain person or group. If progress is not based on rules, but rather on affiliation to certain
power centres, the percentage of exclusion of others who lack access to such opportunities would be very high.
Accordingly, the rule of law would be replaced with the rule of somebody’s will. In this paper are presented and
elaborated original unpublished results from the public opinion research conducted in 2011.
