    Political rights enable people to participate in the political process, including the right to vote freely for distinct alternatives in legitimate elections, compete for public office, join political parties and organizations, and elect representatives who have a decisive impact on public policies and are accountable to the electorate. Political rights are measured on a one-to-seven scale, with one representing the highest degree of freedom and seven the lowest.
