The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in today’s democratic societies has always two sides: the well-intended, which is the expansion of the democratic participation, and the bad-intended, the one that causes concentration. This research analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of the use of e-democracy and claims that the integration of electronic democracy within a country will be based on the effective use of the political-democratic institutions, on the legitimate frame that will control the use of electronic democracy, and on the technological background that describes the country.
