The votebd.org site

In the governance of a country, it is very important in this age to be informed about the people who will be running the country and representing it. Shushashoner Jannoy Nagorik’s Votebd.org does exactly this. Votebd.org tracks all the information related to contesting politicians and makes it available to people of Bangladesh. This is an effort in the direction of reducing corruption by making use of technology for transparency. In the past, even the voter list was not available to the common people. Shujan made the voter list available through this web site. Hopefully, an improvement in the political solution may eventually encourage an environment for honest, competent and devoted persons to join the politics.

Description:

Democracy is a government of the people, for the people, by the people. But do we have a medium to turn this theory into a practical reality. The website http://www.votebd.org has been developed for this purpose, to disseminate the personal information of the candidate who will contest in the local and national elections among the voters. Ironically, this effort is happening in Bangladesh. The information disseminated are educational qualification, criminal records (present and past), statements of assets and liabilities of candidates and dependents, profession, loan from bank and financial institutions, statement of income tax returns, source of election expenses, statement of actual election expenses etc. In addition, about 2,500 news published in the leading national dailies on corruption and criminalization made by politician, businessmen, government officials and others also posted in this site. It is being regularly updated.
