Del Dicho al Hecho

De dicho al Hecho (lit. Easier Said than Done) is a digital platform developed by the Ciudadano Inteligente (lit. Smart Citizen) Foundation in order to evaluate in a constant and progressive way the fulfillment of electoral promises by the Chilean presidency. Through measuring compliance, the platform allows citizens in general to monitor the degree of progress of certain topics, such as health, education, energy, and municipalities, among others. The platform has the fulfillment information for President Piñera?s term from 2010-2014, as well as for President Bachelet?s term from 2014-2018. The platform allows citizens to comment on the published information.
