Australia's Flux Party using technology for direct democracy


(Prianka Srinivasan) #1

With Australia’s election currently underway, it’s interesting to see a new party, Flux, that attempts to use technology to enhance citizens’ direct participation with parliament. Elected MPs from the Flux party must vote on bills according to what participants on the Flux app think. Read more about it here: https://voteflux.org/about/how/.
What do you think - could this be the future of democracy?

This is very similar to what Partido de la Red in Argentina does using the app Democracy OS. They have been doing it for a while. Perhaps there are some papers written on that @andrew?
