    Greetings,

    Please, how do you express the idea of “to believe in a political system”?

    My sentence:
    “Some people don't believe in democracy.”

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    سیستمِ سیاسی ای را قبول/باور داشتن
    به سیستمِ سیاسی ای اعتقاد داشتن

    بعضی از مردم اعتقادی به دمکراسی ندارند
    بعضی(از) افراد به دمکراسی اعتقاد ندارند
    بعضی ها دمکراسی را قبول ندارند

    darush answer is complete, mine is just an addition:

    to believe in a political system = به يك نظام سياسي اعتقاد/باور داشتن or به نظامي سياسي اعتقاد/باور داشتن

    No these two are different. اعتقاد داشتن is believing on sth, but اتكا داشتن is relying and depending on sth.
