MOSCOW, November 9 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev believes that digital technologies won’t be used on a mass scale in the political process any time soon.
A question concerning the use of such technologies during elections was raised at a meeting between the president and members of the Internet community on Wednesday, November 9.
“Speaking of the future, I have no feeling that all these technologies will be used in the political; process,” he said.
At the same time, Medvedev believes that referendums “are used quite rarely because their procedure is rather complex and there can be grave consequences, for example if we divide society”.
“But there are questions on which we must know the opinion of the people. And this can be done faster, less costly and better using digital technologies,” Medvedev said.
“I think we will get back to this in 20-30 years in the era of digital democracy,” he added.
