Organization: Amar MP Social Voluntary

KNOW YOUR REPRESENTATIVES has started a ground-breaking, social democratic movement by coordinating all the information about Members of Parliament (MP) and the different means of communicating with them.

The project will set up a clear and easy-to-follow mechanism for citizens to actively engage in the democratic processes and hold parliamentarians accountable. This platform promises to bridge the gap between parliamentary representatives and the citizens of Bangladesh by creating a platform for them to connect. It will ensure human rights recognised in the Constitution and laws of conservation and development are upheld by promoting accountability, transparency and responsibility of Members of Parliament by getting messages and feedback from the respective constituents.

The over-arching mission is to make MPs aware of their responsibilities and ensure their accountability to the electorate. The platform also enables citizens to find out about their representative, know more details about them, including their publicly filed statement of wealth. Information on MPs, including biography, wealth disclosure, and activities carried out in constituencies. Further, political history will be collated, verified and published on website.

Citizens also have the option of contacting them via different contact numbers and social media accounts listed on the website. Moreover, if they fail to contact them through these means, they can also post questions to MPs directly through the platform.
