In a few days there’ll be the first beta release of the M5S’s operating system called Rousseau. It’ll also be available in the version for mobile phones. Here’s a general description. The missing functions will be ready by the end of the year and requests for improvements will be accepted from signed-up members. Requests for each function will be managed by M5S elected representatives. The complexity of the M5S, that with the latest elections, has reached a total of 1,796 elected representatives, makes it necessary to have such a tool for an online movement. Signed-up members are asked to contribute and make suggestions, offer criticisms, put forward proposals and provide evidence of any errors that are found.

Rousseau is the 5 Star MoVement’s Operating System.
The aim is to manage the various elected components of the M5S (European Parliament, Italian Parliament, regional councils, local coucils) and to allow the signed-up members to participate in M5S activities by doing such things as drafting laws and voting to choose electoral lists and to decide on positions inside the M5S.

Only signed-up members of the M5S can access Rousseau.
After you are identified you get access to the functions in accordance with your identitity and your profile. The profile shows whether or not you are an elected representative and where you reside.

Functions in the first release:
- Lex nazionale, participation in the drafting of national laws proposed by parliamentarians
- Lex regionale, participation in the drafting of regional laws proposed by regional councillors
- Lex Europa, participation in the drafting of regional laws proposed by europarliamentarians
- Vota, vote for the electoral lists or to make a choice on a specific topic
- Fund Raising, collecting funds for elections or M5S events
- Scudo della Rete, collecting funds for the legal protection of the M5S, its signed-up members or its elected representatives.

In the future, there’ll also be these functions:
- Attivismo, (materials in support of M5S initiatives including digital (example: the virtual march or 5 Star Activist), and fliers giving explanations (example: about the Citizens’ Income and the Euro), videos and/or photos
- Sharing, file with different proposals (formal questions, results of discussions, laws, etc. relating to towns and regions - with a common taxonomy
- E-learning, lessons about the structures where elected representatives are operating - explaining how they function
- Lex iscritti, proposed laws put forward by signed-up members that are later to be presented to elected representatives in the different venues
- Gruppi di lavoro (meet up), information from the local groups and about the local groups relating to current initiatives

Stelle accese
When you enter Rousseau you’ll see stars “lit up” in correspondence with your identity and profile. For example: if there’s voting going on for the electoral list in the Region of Lombardy only those signed-up M5S members residing in Lombardy can vote - and in that case the “Vota” star will be lit up. The same person will be able to have access to the drafting of regional laws for Lombardy and in this case the “Lex regionale” star will also be lit up.
