Democracy OR Multi-stakeholderism: Competing Models of Governance

To me it is quite clear that "democratic governance" and "multi-stakeholder governance" are internally in contradiction with each other. At their core, democracy as in the "rule of the people" is one form of government and multi-stakeholderism as in" the rule of "stakeholders"" is another and competing form. I don't think that they can be reconciled.
