Re: SDKÚ wins EP elections, By Lukáš Fila, June 14 - 20, Vol 10, No 23
People see the European Parliament as something too far from their daily lives, although it is actually closer to them than their local municipality.
Take, for example, the quality of the water we drink. The EP is responsible for that. They will vote to approve or alter the European Commission's law proposals in this area.
This is just an example, but voters don't know these things, and that is the reason people stayed home, and not only in Slovakia. They are poorly informed.
