An app has been developed by some IT youngsters for following up the performance by elected officials of KPK assembly.
The mobile application is called TrackReps and it was displayed at Peshawar Press Club on Thursday by its manufacturers. The youngsters are all students of various public sector universities. The app they have launched through combined effort would track the performance of the elected members of KPK.

So as Mohsin Tariq said that all the profile of each and every elected representative from the bills passed to projects initiated would just be a click away. The advantage of this system is that people can see the progress of members and make intelligent voting decisions.
The founder of TrackReps, Shehroz Rashid informed that transparency and honesty lack in our leaders. Now the public can monitor whether an elected member is worth his place or not through this tool.
The local engagement analyst, Hamail Raza said, “This idea can also be scaled to National Assembly of Pakistan, representing the whole nation. Since the model is to monitor the performance of public representatives, it can also be introduced and replicated in other countries both developed and developing.”
Shafeeq Khan said that those people who use smartphones would now have transparent data in their hands.
As per statistics, there are 30 million internet users in Pakistan and after 3G/4G services, the number has just increased. Also, the number of phone users has also increased to 116 million out of which 31% are smartphone users.
