Citizens are quite aware of the strengths and weaknesses of populist parties. They are good communicators. On the other hand, they are unable to provide sustainable solutions. At the same time, there is a concern that, unfortunately, traditional and mainstream parties cannot provide those sustainable solutions either, unless they start innovating. This has been identified as a shortcoming of the traditional and mainstream parties and an area which is in need of bigger improvement, says Assya Kavrakova, Executive Director of the European Citizens Action Service (ECAS), in an interview with Europost.
