E-Participation to Participate In E-Governance in Pakistan

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to inquire the impact of e-participation levels which influence the participants to participate in e-governance websites. We also explore the mediating effect of user trust during participation in e-governance websites. This research is based on questionnaires which are distributed among university student. Total 150 questionnaires were distributed among the students in faculty of social sciences in GCUF. The results of this study shows significant relation among the e-participation levels and intentions to participate in e-governance. Trust of people in e-governance websites also mediates this relation and significant impact.  So, we can say that if greater the e participation, greater will be the intention to participate in e-governance. Governments need to assert the role of citizens in the decision making process. Such assertion is done through the e-participation process.
