However, often these reports come well after the money has been promised or awarded, following audits or detailed reporting from journalists and others. During this election campaign, we're trying to monitor the distribution of election promises and monetary announcements in real time. We're also going to keep track of how much money goes towards marginal seats, and how this compares to what each seat would receive if the funding was shared equally. It's also likely the broader trends may change over time. And there will be errors as we go due to the sheer number of entries, despite each entry being put through at least three stages of checking before we include it in the final data.

Bonta residents we interviewed believed they were attacked with the ammunition the soldiers supplied to the Igede militants in Oju.
