A one-party state often in practice appears to consider that all nationals are de-facto members of the ruling party, so how is there really any difference between that & a non-partisan democracy?

Is it just semantics or are there any real differences.


In a one-party state, the party leadership usually sets the rules, which are binding for all party members and/or citizens.

In a non-partisan democracy, every candidate or representative can form and voice their own opinions. A non-partisan democracy lacks a Politburo.
