What problem are you solving?:
The Assembly of Kosova has its website which has the basic information on the functions of the Assembly, Presidency, Committees and MPs. However, Assembly of Kosova has not achieved to publish in its website the draft laws being drafted in the Assembly, electronic voting of MPs, Parliamentary questions addressed by MPs, as well as their presence in the Plenary Sessions and Committees Meetings. In this way citizens of Kosova have little information on the representation of their interests done by their MPs. Through the implementation of this project, citizens would have more information on the work of Assembly of Kosova and they will have more opportunities to be engaged in its proceedings. By offering to citizens more information on the performance of the current MPs, they will have an additional opportunity to reflect on how their MP-s have kept their promises given during the electoral campaign, and to think on how they will vote in the next elections.
Describe your idea:
Aim of the project is that through creation of a database of the Assembly of Kosova to narrow the gap between the transition of Kosovo society and the real democracy, by informing, increasing awareness and educate the citizens on how function the Assembly of Kosova, and as e result, improving the image of the Assembly and increase the public participation in the public policies.
