Good Party promises better democracy, e-sports
Turkey’s opposition nationalist Good Party has promised to improve Turkish democracy through electronic referendums and to increase the speed of Turkey’s internet connections.
The party pledged to make local administration spending decisions participatory using an electronic democracy system, to introduce e-referendums on contentious issues and to introduce more comprehensive systems of public consultation on topics of public interest.
It is also courting the votes of students and young people by promising faster, cheaper internet services, including free messaging services for university students and the poor.
“We will weave fibre networks across Turkey and lower its pings,” a graphic shared by party leader Meral Akşener said, in reference to the measure of internet speed used in online gaming platforms.
