The Net Party (Spanish: Partido de la Red) was a political party headquartered in Argentina.[1] The company proposes an online form of liquid democracy that it calls "net democracy" based on the Internet. Their goal is to elect representatives who will reliably vote according to what the citizenry decide online.

History[edit]

The party was founded by Santiago Siri and Esteban Brenman in April 2012[citation needed]. It received the required support of 4000 citizens (to officially exist as a party) in August 2013[citation needed]. During the October 2013 elections, Net Party ran for a seat in the local parliament of Buenos Aires and achieved 21.000 votes (1% of the votes)[citation needed]. It is currently working to improve a software called DemocracyOS.

Net expanding[edit]

This Net Party is constantly expanding with independent political parties nodes that shares the same name and purpose.[2]

Proposed method[edit]

The Net Party created an open-source software (DemocracyOS) to be used as a new democratic participation platform.

  1. Citizens are able to vote on existing legislative projects being discussed in the local parliament; this allows more power to constituents to determine how the party's congressman will vote.
  2. This platform also acts as a space to propose and vote on new law proposals; they are then officially presented by the party's congressman if they meet a threshold of citizen support.
