The former Chief Election Commissioner of India has launched a new website aimed at providing information about candidates standing for the assembly and parliamentary election.
The website, empoweringindia.org, has been built by the Delhi-based Liberty Institute, and aims to "empower the citizens with information about their candidates and constituencies, so that the foundation of the largest democratic republic in the world is strengthened, through greater accountability and transparency."
The website includes an analysis of election results, details about candidates, and disclosures on election expenditure.
