Sevak Mamyan, Infocom Information Aggregator Editor, explains the creation of the site with the demand to filter information. During the Velvet Revolution, this demand was great.

At first, Infokom was a Telegram channel, according to Mamyan, it was also safe and was possible to use during mass gatherings in cases of weak internet connection.

“The site became another platform for us. That is to say, we give different information to social media and website followers,” he said.

Infocom collects information by agreeing with or cooperating with other sites. Sevak Mamyan noticed that all the websites actually do the same, which can reprint information with sight changes and without any references, while Infocom always makes notes of the sources.

The site also has its own content on educational topics, social issues and legal changes.

In the drawer

How do MPs and factions vote? What are the hottest bills debated in parliament? Parliamentmonitoring is not a new website, but it is very useful for lawmakers to follow.

One can choose two MPs, compare their activities and get a coefficient of similarity.

The site is available not only operating but also the data on the previous two convocation parliaments.
