If I was president
If I was president was a campaign created by the alliance between Seamos.co and Change.org during the presidential elections of 2018, with the purpose that citizen proposals would become part of the government plan of the new president of Colombia. It worked as a web platform where users could create requests, publish them on social networks to gain support through signatures, and later the team in charge of the initiative shared with the presidential candidates the petitions, and these in turn had the option to express their support or not according to their topics of interest.
