Interview with: Maya Graf, President of the National Council
Maya Graf: I am confident. A new legislative period brings new faces into the Council, and new faces bring new ideas. I am certain that more constructive cooperation between the parties will be easier to achieve than in previous years. This is already evident, in my opinion, from the decisions regarding energy, land use planning and agricultural policy.
Communication with political stakeholders has changed dramatically. To what extent can the authorities still communicate to sufficient effect with the general population?
Maya Graf: In Switzerland, politicians – even those ‘on high’ in Bern – are still very close to the general population and interact directly with them on a daily basis. However, social media are also actively used. For me personally, the quantity of information is less important than the quality.
Is politics still capable of reaching young people in particular and sparking their interest in political issues?
Maya Graf: I doubt that young people are more apolitical than they were a few years ago. There are many issues that inspire young people – examples include the large demonstrations against nuclear power plants after the Fukushima disaster, or the Pirate Party, which addresses the issue of unrestricted internet access, or online discussion forums such as Politnetz or Vimentis which are moderated by young people. It is important that young people are also represented at every level of our political system. I am pleased that we now have some young and very committed men and women in the National Council. They are the best role models and certainly inspire others to get involved in politics. I myself have been politically active since I was 21 and I still find it exciting.
