SaotAlArab.com: What Arab Citizens Want From Their Political Leaders

12 Jan, 2010

saot alarab logoSaot AlArab is a new not for profit Arabic website that aims to crowed source decision making in Arab countries and link the voice of Arab citizens with their political leaders.

Users from across the Arab world can submit ideas of projects that they would implement if they were the decision makers and other users can vote the ideas and add their comments.

Project ideas are categorized into: Security, Media, Economics, Education, Culture, Politics, Society, and Technology.

After a certain time the web site owners will write down submited ideas into a book and send it to all Arab leaders.

I have just added an idea which is to create a pan Arab and Islamic fund to finance Research and Development (R&D) in any Arab and Muslim country with 10 billion USD in capital. But the website came with a message that says” your idea is under review and will be published soon.” Which I think discredit the site from being really open. Something that is understood, since the site will be banned in many Arab countries, if their political leaders were criticized.

What do you want your leader to do?

    Great idea.. something good can come out of it. I suggest adding the ability to vote for the best ideas (Digg.com style). This will give visibility to great ideas, and hopefully the governments will take notice and start implementing !

    i agree with you, digg style but up and down would be better than the 5 star voting system.
