The main part of the election campaign takes place during the vacations – is that a blessing or a curse??
The vacation season makes it more difficult to reach people and talk to them. Also, the events on the occasion of the elections (for example, panel discussions) are rather poorly attended.
Whether this has to do directly with the vacation season or is due to a lack of interest on the part of the electorate, I cannot answer. But we have to get people more enthusiastic about democracy in general, and it is rather a hindrance if many are simply on vacation during the election campaign. Whereas, of course, political opinion-forming and dialogue with the people should take place independently of the election campaign.
