I am really interested in the accountabilty of the workday of a governement representative. But how exactly should that have an effect? I have seen protests (both violent and peaceful) with no direct or effective consequence on the behaviour of the government official. I have seen lobbying campaigns that did not have a desired result in policy making. In this perspective, will the platform be more of a helping tool for the vote decision, than an immediate sanctioning system?

The issue of not having an internet access is a crucial one if this system is to be implemented successfully. Even in the modern-tech cities, some people still don't go online, for various reasons. The question this Platform ought to answer is: Who am I trying to reach? Because people interested in policies, politicians' background, status of issues, are doing research aside the existence of a platform. The system can only offer a (virtual) space of debate and communication, BUT if it does not reach those who do not have an internet acces (technological and economical means), the "voice" that will be heard will not be respresentative for the community...
