Supporting citizens to push for free and fair elections in Pakistan

Earlier this year, to support a free and fair election, Bytes for All in Pakistan created a citizen reporting platform and provided journalism training to 40 citizens. Following the success of this project they are now working to support a ‘shadow government’ that monitors, tracks and reports on whether elected politicians are living up to their election promises. In this video, Furhan Hussain tells us all about it.
