What are the minimum requirements for a system to be called democratic?

I think the title is very clear, but I'll complete the question below: 1. What are the minimum requirements needed for a system to be called democratic? 2. Is holding elections every *n* years enough, or there are deeper requirements? In other words, what criteria must a system of government meet before it can be called democratic?
