Is genuine democracy possible in a country with only two political parties? If not, why not?
Theoretically yes. In practice since both parties want to get into power they will tend to converge to offer what they think the electorate wants. The same thing holds if there are more than two parties
How many political parties did the home of democracy have, the Greek States?
Constitutional Democracy ultimately takes the shape in the Governing Houses of a bipartite system. The party in power and the opposition. Being from India, I have seen how a multiparty democracy works. Many will say that multiparty assures that the interests and prejudices (not in the negative sense of the word) of the minority people of the demography are presented better with the option to have parties that focus on these. However, I have noted these smaller parties, only play pawn to the larger parties and often confuse and dilute the urgency of issues and prevent timely government action by unnecessarily dealing under the table for petty promises and benefits. A tripartite system is best, where all the three parties have a clear mandate and can not play hand in glove to undermine the citizens interest without the fear of electoral punishment. The two parties in opposition will always be acting watch dog for the citizen on the actions of the other to prevent sell out on any policy that is against the democratic or national interest.
