While Ukraine is just on the way of providing E-democracy, some European countries can be proud of the successful tradition political and community online participation. Germany is a vivid example in this practice.
German portal abgeordnetenwatch.de is a link among the nationals, deputies and candidates. The key slogan of the platform is “The nationals ask – the politics answer”. Everyone can ask a question here and get a public reply. In addition, the voting results of each deputy and his independent opposition activity are published and highlighted on portal.
Before being published all questions and replies are checked for compliance with the moderating code.
One more task of the portal is research work on lobbying, party contributions and independent opposition activity.The results of the research work are published in blog.
The site is serviced by CO «Parlamentwatch»,which is funded by fold and regular contributions.
