What problem are you solving?:
The processes of political positioning of individuals proposed by parties on elections (local, state) are not transparent for citizens. Nor criteria for professional engagement in public institutions is reasonable or based on professional records, curriculum, education background and measurable effects in profession (Minister for Ecology and Urbanism is a Doctor of Orthopedic, for exmpl.!?)… There is no obligatory method for elected representatives to act according to the proposed program, there’s no penalties for non accomplished mission, there’s a great abuse of common good (corruption), public opinion (media control&law of information which protects politicians) and general degradation of civil values.
Describe your idea:
PIC is an interactive (API) web protocol generated on civil participating&networking (political facebook, for expl!) which will work out as monitoring&mirroring tool of politicians’ activities, provoking them to work on more transparent&responsible manner.
PIC website will be equipped with pools, blogs, forums, video and photo galleries, chat, RSS feeds …
The PIC website will be connected with referential civil society groups and experts, law and institutional links to generate interactivity among civil sections and citizens, independent experts and politicians.
Citizens also will contribute in data collection of politician’s activities and thus create more open public communications which will provoke more responsible behavior of PR and more transparent practices of all legal bodies.
