In conformity with the democratic principle, namely the principle of national sovereignty, all functions of State power are not exercised only by way of representative bodies, but some of the "dimensions:" of that power may be exercised by citizens directly, in a referendum and through people's initiative.
In general, the Constitution of Serbia does not know of the principle, and accordingly, the institutionalization, of the collective sovereignty, either on the ethical or class foundations for establishing a collective.
This rationalization of parliamentarism is dictated also by the present-day social situation in Serbia, which is going to last for some time, but it does not at all, just as in the Constitution of the Fifth French Republic, challenge the existence of the essential core of parliamentarism. /facts/constitution.html

 Andrew Peyton Thomas on Iraqi Sovereignty on National Review Online
It would be more helpful to explain to Iraqis what we mean by the notion of sovereignty in Western political theory, as they will soon be absorbing these democratic traditions in one form or another.
Yet even by this definition, the regime that will come into being after June 30 will be marked by consensual divided power — or, if we relent and use the imprecise term of the moment, divided sovereignty.
If a majority of Iraqis consciously reject democratic traditions, there will be nothing left for us to do but leave them to their own devices and confine our efforts there to our own national self-protection. /comment/thomas200405200923.asp

Accepting national sovereignty, in turn, demands accepting of the principle that power resides in the nation, which means the totality of individual citizens, irrespective of race, religion, belief, gender, occupation, etc. This equality of all citizens before the laws is a necessary condition for the removal of any legal basis for inequality and discrimination.
