Liberian Open Government Partnership could get SMS platform


Liberian Deputy Information Minister Andrew Tehmeh has called on the government to develop an SMS platform to gather feedback on national development, aimed at enhancing the Open Government Partnership (OGP). Tehmeh believes that if the government's provision of online information is achieved, there will be more feedback from the public upon which it can act, LINA reported.

He said the government is building roads and doing other developments in rural areas, which must be brought to the attention of the public. Tehmeh outlined other activities such as standardising government websites and the development of a known open data and citizen navigation system, as stated in the government's 2014-15 OPG commitment and action plan.
