Citizen interest in politics: why enter politics? How to influence politicians?

Survey respondents said that they took the greatest interest in local affairs (two thirds of those polled were very or partly interested), followed by an interest in the economic situation of our country (59.9% of those polled were very or partly interested) and an interest in information from abroad (56.7%). However, this information was not specified as ‘political information’; the question was posed generally.

The interest in the political situation ranked last, although over a majority of respondents (52.3%) are very or at least partly interested in it.
