According to my knowledge, Mater-Slave election is needed to decide who will to start communication between two routers. In broadcast domains all the DR other routers communicate with DR. Is there a need for M/S election here?

Yes, a M/S election is needed. Since the router does not know how many neighbors are on the attached circuit it has to send LSA updates via multicast. On point-to-point Interfaces a unicast adress is used. This is one example why a M/S election is needed on broadcast and NBMA interfaces.
For this particular example I suggest reading the OSPF Version 2 flooding procedure in RFC 2328
