Abstract: This paper addresses the concept of developing an efficient and effective e-democracy system. The concepts of three main e-democracy developments and control framework of COBIT 4.1 are employed for constructing our sustainable e-democracy development, which consists of four external components. Such components are development environment, stakeholder and policy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), and development methodology. The underlying e-democracy applications are introduced based on democratic principles and the OECD framework of citizens| participation. Furthermore, the quality of an e-democracy system is established by using the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and the e-government Web Quality Assessment Model (e-government WebQAM). This sustainable development and quality of an e-democracy system can be used as guidelines for successful e-democracy development.
Keywords: e-democracy; e-government; sustainable development; framework; COBIT 4.1; TAM; technology acceptance model; quality models; ICT; information technology; communications technology; methodology; policy; electronic democracy; electronic government; WebQAM; web quality assessment; sustainability.
