2)    It lays down the ideals that form the basis of the kind of country that its citizens aspire to live in.
3)    It serves as asset of rules and principles as the basis by which the country has to be governed.
4)    It provides rules to safeguard the interests of minorities and prevent any kind of domination by the majority on minorities.
5)    It lays down rules that guard against the misuse of power by any politician leader.
6)    It also provides rights to its citizens and protects their freedom.

Q.3: What would happen if there were no restrictions on the power of elected representatives?
Solution: In democracy people choose their leaders so that they can exercise power responsibly on their behalf. But there is always the possibility that these leaders might misuse their authority as per their wish which can not be allowed in democracy. This misuse of authority can result in gross injustice and breakdown of democratic system. Hence as a safeguard against the misuse of power by our political leaders it is necessary to have restriction on their power.
