Istinomer as Civic Media

During the 2017 presidential campaign, Istinomer launched new website providing relevant information on presidential candidates’ programs and collecting promises to be subsequently fact checked. Istinomer also upgraded existing online tools to enable citizens to explore and compare platforms of the presidential candidates and thus motivate its audiences to further engage in accountability monitoring during the campaign and its aftermath. Through its continued cooperation with partner CSOs, which work with underrepresented groups, Istinomer also put the issues of vulnerable groups on the agenda during the campaign, by demanding candidates to give their views of the problems affecting these groups and propose concrete and viable solutions.
