Abstract

Society and technology nowadays is relatively not a dichotomy. In parallel, every single government also will utilise technology as a medium to bridge the two-way relations between the government and the people. To properly understand the current society’s needs, the context of this study will be focussing on the local government level which has been well- known as the closest public authority to the local community. Besides, this organisation can be an utmost prominent role in empowering the digitalisation of local society from the grassroots level. Electronic participation (e-participation) can be a felicitous virtual e- democracy platform for local government to gather any effective input, suggestions, and ideas from each of the people in formulating and implementing any public legal policy relevant to the jurisdiction of local government councils. However, before designing and implementing a comprehensive and effective e-participation platform, local governments as well as the public need to understand clearly in advance concerning some of the critical determining factors that contribute to the successful implementation of a user-oriented, fast, secured, and effective e-participation system. Therefore, this paper is generally designed to give the reader an understanding of some relevant literary works and findings as well as to fill the research gaps related to e-participation studies especially in the context of local government in Malaysia. This paper discusses some briefly concerning the initial introduction, the research methodology, some relevant literary works and findings and last but not least the discussion and conclusion.
