VOXPOP (VARIOUS VIDEO QUOTES FROM BRUSSEL’S CITIZENS SAYING - FRENCH): ⇨ European elections, what does it mean to you? -“Brussels is very important for me” - “Yes, as for everybody” - “Without a European government, nothing will change” - “I think this is important” - “It is important in theory but there is no connection with the everyday citizen” ⇨ Voting at 16, what do you think about it ? - “The European dimension is essential for young people” - “16 is too young” - “I have the impression that 16 is a bit young. It is important to make young people aware but I think voting at 16 is young” - “Yes, this is a good think because it will enable young people to feel responsible.” ⇨ What about improving the gender balance in the voting list ? -“For me, ideas and politics have no sex” - “We need gender parity on the European voting lists” - “the gender should not influence people’s political power” - “This is absolutely essential. There is maybe more women than men on earth so I don’t see why women could not have their place in politics” ⇨ What do you think about the electronic vote ? -“It might motivate some people. ” - “We wouldn’t wake-up in the morning and we would vote via our computers. Yes, it will be really great”.” - “It would avoid people to wake-up early, get out of their house and queue. That facility is a good option but we have to ensure that electronic vote is secured”.
