Üldinfo

There are two kinds of people in politics: those who are in politics to get something done, and those who do something to get into politics. For me, the most important thing is to have the opportunity to get something done but I would not hasten to judge those who see politics as their profession. Personally speaking, I simply find the process more interesting than my own part in it.
