I (the ngo activist) was invited yesterday to speak on the national radio in a 2 hour show about young politicians. On the phone: Manuel
Avramescu (PNL, no blog, no picture on the official website after 13 years in the party 🙂 ), Nicolae Banicioiu (PSD, ex-student-union-leader, no blog, wiki page) and Aurelian Chiriac (PD, blogger). The sad thing was that only 1 out of 3 young politicians are using new media in order to send their political message but I expect many of them to start blogging in 2008 as their parties are preparing for the elections. A pleasant surprise is KovÃ¡cs PÃ©ter (UDMR) with his new blog “100% Live“.
On the other hand, I’m happy to say that the radio show allowed me to invite the politicians to start a debate in 2008 regarding The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. My feeling is that a public debate on this matter will raise awareness on certain aspects regarding Romanians living in non-E.U. countries.
