Models of Representation:
1.Delegate Model of Representation
People elect representatives and it is the job of elected representatives to express
the opinions.
2.Trustee Model of Representation
People elect representatives to exercise their judgment about what is in the best
interest of the people that elected them.
3.Descriptive Model of Representation
Representation depends on \being something rather than doing something. The
representative does not act for others; he'stands for' them, by virtue of a
correspondence or connection between them, a resemblance or reaction" (Pitkin
