Feminist Initiative MEP candidate: Keep EU as a 'soft power project'

7:15 min

Soraya Post is the Feminist Initiative's top candidate in the election to the European Parliament.

Post is seeking a second term as the party's only MEP. She says she wants the EU parliament to strengthen democracy across the continent and act as a peace-building institution.

The Feminist Initiative focuses on passing feminist and anti-racist policies at the European level. Post has spent her time in the EU parliament promoting and securing the rights of Europe's Roma population and women.

The last EU election saw the party's best performance yet but since then its voter support has dwindled. Polls show it falling below the 4 percent threshold to keep its one seat in Brussels and Strasbourg.

This is the fifth part in our interview-series with the top candidates in the European Parliament elections.
