That is, if I rewrite the first sentence...

"On the other hand, AI and digital technologies are already disrupting the traditional view of democracy, and [AI and digital technologies are already disrupting the traditional view of democracy] not always for the better, ensuring that processes are more inclusive."

Is my guess right? Or, and just links disrupting with the following ensuring as a parallel structure?

On the other hand, AI and digital technologies are already disrupting the traditional view of democracy, and not always for the better, ensuring that processes are more inclusive. In fact, if anything, AI is strengthening the link between democracy and economics, supporting the manipulation of information to meet the needs of a few, and enabling the emergence of super economic powers that are outside democratic scrutiny and control. When algorithms are used to decide our access to information about a news item, a political candidate or a business, opinions and votes can shift, and potential governments be made or broken. Because algorithmic censorship is mostly unregulated, large corporations can in principle decide what information we have, outside the traditional democratic processes of governance and accountability. Moreover, these same corporations also own most of our, and our governments’, data by the conditions under which we use their products to share, store and manage information.

Your interpretation of the meaning is correct, but of course no-one would write a sentence like your 'corrected' version.

You could express it as ...and [this disruption is] not always [a change] for the better.
