Depends on what one defines as democratic, I guess. The process for selecting DHB Community Directors from candidates who put themselves forward includes:
Before any person is appointed as a director in accordance with paragraph (5) he or she must be interviewed by, and the Board must consult with, a panel comprising the Board’s chair and three members of a committee of the Board to be known as the Nomination Committee, the chair of the Dover Port Users Group, the chair of the Port & Community Forum, one elected member of the Dover District Council, one elected member of Dover Town Council, the Member of Parliament for Dover and the chair of the South East Local Enterprise Partnership.
