Control of politicians
— #13 Meetings of politicians outside their office
If a politician attends a meeting outside his/her office, for example, in a cafeteria or restaurant, he/she should prove that the meeting took place by an invoice (there is usually a time-stamp on the invoice that enables to verify the data stated in the public electronic diary).
If it was possible to check in this way if the information about the meetings outside the deputy's office contained in the electronic public diary are accurate, it would not only increase the credibility of the contents of the diary, but also of politicians as such.
