It would depend on who gets there first like someone said previously. But an Ordo Malleus would obviously have more expertise and resources when dealing with the demonic. All of the Ordos have equal authority and jurisdiction but certain Ordos are more specialized in dealing with certain things. A Ordo Sicarius Inquisitor holds the same power as a Witch-Hunter or Daemonhunter but wouldn't necessarily have specialized resources like daemonhosts, wards, etc. and would be more suited to investigating or carrying out assassinations.

"You do not need to look to the stars to find the greatest obstacle this Conclave faces, my brothers. Simply gaze around this room and you will find such a sea of discord as to make your foes cackle with glee." - Inquisitor Eistus Gracker in address to the Calixian Conclave

"There are dark pitted corners of our universe that have bred the most unfathomable horrors and blasphemies that would burn and blind the sanest man. Fortunately sanity has never been a prerequisite of membership in the Holy Ordos." - Inquisitor Silas Marr

I think that's why the Hereticus is more sinister, advocates of democratic governance would be probably be considered a "threat" within their jurisdiction
I was always under the impression that as long as the tithe was payed and the Emperor was worshipped the Imperium didn't give a crap about the acctual runnings of a world. Ergo the Inquisition wouldn't waste valuable time and resources tracking down a bunch of democratic 'rebels' unless said rebels actively (or secretly) worshipped one of the Dark Gods or were being manipluated by a xenos race. Afterall not every world in 40k is a militaristic dictatorship hellhole, some must have at least the semblence of democracy and some probably even have peaceful, stable, democratic governments/lives

Wow I come back after a day expecting maybe one or two comments! Thanks everyone - although not sure it is really any clearer. Seems the jurisdiction overlaps remain!
