In a response to a byline article by IT spokesperson Karin Gaardsted from the Social Democrats PA demands new visions for IT and technology.
“I am not saying that Danish politicians should have in-depth technical knowledge in their areas of expertise. However, they need to have a political vision in their area of expertise […] Politicians should be able to clearly communicate how we, as a nation, can use IT as a tool to develop our society,” PA says.
“I may not know much about democracy, compared to politicians, but I do know about how to create change that matters to people, for instance, through IT and technology. Changing people requires encouragement, which can only be made through implementable visions,” PA says.
