In view of the EU elections YouTube has launched in co-operation with TV Channel Euronews a new broadcasting service called Questions For Europe, with the aim of “bringing the people closer to the politicians”.
EU citizens will until the 3rd of June be able to upload questions to MEPs that are running for elections. A selection of these questions will then be answered by the candidates, and broadcast on Euronews. Although an excellent initiative, with only 15 questions uploaded and 303 views so far, momentum is still lacking.
But here is hoping it will all change…maybe YouTube can add a bit of spice to the elections?
