Leaderswatch provides information to empower citizens and make politicians accountable. LW fills a gap in the range of existing political advocacy tools. Leaderswatch brings citizens to the stage!
The data provided by LW, as an internet platform, will make accountability work from home and help citizens to vote smartly. Citizens will be able to get easy access to information about the work done by politicians.
LeadersWatch (LW) will develop a set of web-based tools:
• The index of civic quality (ICQ)
• Internet polls
• Leadership map
LW will strengthen politicians’ positive incentives to improve their efficiency and democratic virtues. It aims to make the headlines by highlighting information about those legislators, town mayors, presidents and governors who are doing their job well.
I am from Argentina where bad and corrupt politicians making bad decisions have a huge impact in every day life. Since 2004 I live in Madrid where there is too much corruption. It is very difficult to understand why people vote for political parties and politicians who are involved in corruption.
Citizens, voters and politicians.
I believe that LW can be an online platform or even a startup but I am only a political scientists so any ideas or suggestions on that direction will be great
