Panamanian Constitutional Reform App

Panamanian Constitutional Reform App

For the first time ever since Panama's dictatorship years, the country's Constitution is getting reformed.

Representatives from the Senate have been tasked to tour around the country to gather citizen's opinions. However, due to time and geographical limitations, it seems impossible to hear everyone involved.

This is why Independent Senators have joined forces and hired me to build an app that everyone can access through their phones. Participa Panamá is a public participation tool enabling people to go through the entire Constitution, old and new, and add in their comments and opinions to each amendment based on what they've just read.

Since this occurred earlier in 2019, this application is no longer maintained. You can find an old version of the app here.
