Robert: I love democracy. The power is given to the people. The news today shows that dictatorships cannot last. People want freedom.
gglo67: Constitutions are laying down rights and obligations to give more freedom to the citizens of a country.
Robert: Well some countries still have parliamentary monarchy, but the executive power is in the hands of the government.
gglo67: Nowadays, modern governments are instated with new ministries to meet citizens' needs.
Robert: The ministry of the environment has an important role in the fight against climate change.
gglo67: Just like the ministry of finance that dealt with the crisis. Modern politics no longer ignores the voice of the citizen.

you should pay attention to the pronunciation of the word "government" ("o" isn't always read like "o-sound").

There is always an issue with the word "ignore", you read it in italian style, so "n" is softened, although it doesn't have to be like this!
