The colonization of Mars may go along with advancements in social structures and leadership. Representative democracy is likely to be the most wanted kind of government.

With Elections

Just like on Earth the government of a martian society can be elected by the colonists.

Without Elections

Representative democracy can work without elections, as well. Modelled on the ancient Athenian democracy the martian people can chose to selection the government members by lottery, which can be regarded as a more democratic principle. Unlike the Athenian democracy the parliament on Mars allows every adult member of the martian community to be selected, including women.
