Most people aren’t very knowledgeable about government procedures, laws, and acts. Requests for information from government agencies quite often involve a lot of laborious and repetitive tasks and paperwork for the public as well as for the government workforce.
Despite governments deploying more service workers and spending billions to serve people better, the process to handle the public’s issues is still long-drawn, which can be frustrating for the community and causes a distance between them and the government, preventing the building of a healthy relationship.
