Keeping track of your Welsh Assembly Member
Today we are introducing a new feature to the Welsh Assembly's website so as to improve the transparency and accountability of AMs.
At 9am we will be remotely activating a GPS application in the Assembly-provided blackberries held by all members, so that anybody checking the members area on our website will be able to bring up a map so as to locate where their representative is at the time.
The innovation mirrors a similar provision available on the website of the South Korean Parliament. I first heard about it at an e-parliament conference last September and was keen to introduce it for the Welsh Assembly. We have been developing it ever since along with a number of other changes and innovations.
I am pleased to say that we are now in a position to launch it. The AFD application will transform the relationship between Assembly Members and their electorate. We expect it to be a huge success.
An absolute brilliant idea, forget April 1st. Do it! I want to know where you are, even in the small room!Post a Comment
