Re: EVENT: Convention on internal democracy by loktantra raksha manch, Ranchi
Thank you for the invitation. I would like to introduce an online platform EmpoweringIndia.org, which complies the information of all the electoral candidates to help citizens make informed choices when they vote and make the electoral representatives accountable.
At present the website has affidavits information (e.g. financial and criminal records) of candidates who have contested assembly elections (2003 onwards) in different states and the Lok Sabha elections of 2004. As well election results. This data is useful in various ends, beginning with making informed choices about which candidate to cast our vote for, to holding the elected representatives and the political parties in our constituency accountable for the deliverables that they ahve promised in the elections.
I would like to invite you to explore the web site. I greatly appreciate any comments and suggestions you may have. Your inputs would help us improve the effectiveness of the site.
