Liberal Alliance acknowledges miscommunication on gender differences in EU campaign.

Liberal Alliance acknowledges miscommunication about gender differences. Liberal Alliance has admitted to making mistakes in communication about gender differences in the campaign leading up to the EU elections. The party’s political leader, Alex Vanopslagh, stated that the party must now learn from these mistakes. This was said at the Folkemødet in Allinge on Bornholm. Vanopslagh emphasizes that misunderstandings from politicians typically stem from a lack of clear communication.

Liberal Alliance’s youth party has criticized the main party for having a distorted view of gender roles, which may have deterred female voters. EU candidate Mads Strange has previously stated that men are better at mental sports like chess, sparking a debate. When asked if he agrees with Strange, Vanopslagh responds: “I do not agree that it was relevant to discuss why men perform better in chess and another sport.”

Vanopslagh also admits that it was irrelevant when he himself discussed the differences between men and women in the Defense. He believes that the best Defense is achieved through a high degree of voluntarism, and that some of his arguments about gender differences were skewed and contributed to a wrong perception. To rectify the situation, the party will now evaluate and learn from the recent mistakes in their communication.

“We evaluate, learn from our mistakes, and gladly welcome input from Liberal Alliance Youth,” says Vanopslagh. He views positively that the youth party is not a “docile lamb’s tail” for the main party, and their criticism will be included in a broader evaluation of the election campaign.

“When we land at seven percent, we have not fulfilled the potential in that campaign. We are in the process of evaluating what we should have done sharper and differently, and we are looking all the way around,” he concludes.
