Popular sovereignty is a governmental basis by which all political power is exercised on behalf of the people, with authority granted by election. It can be integrated into a constitutional oligarchy, multiple sovereignty, or as a stand-alone sovereign authority. Republicanism is the political philosophy which favors the elimination of hereditary monarchy in favor of popular sovereignty.
