    C. Decree
    Explanation
    A decree is not a characteristic of democracy. A decree refers to an official order or decision made by a ruler or government without the involvement of the people. In a democracy, power is vested in the people, and decisions are made through a process of voting and representation. Decrees are more commonly associated with autocratic or authoritarian systems of government, where the ruling authority has the power to make decisions without consulting the people. Therefore, a decree does not align with the principles of democracy, making it the correct answer.

The judiciary, executives, and police do not have the authority to make laws, as their roles are primarily focused on interpreting and enforcing laws.
