On est majeurs donc on a des devoirs, entre guillemets.

Un des devoirs, c'est de voter.
One of the duties is to vote.

Et sinon... Je pense que c'est une mauvaise chose parce que...
And apart from that... I think it's a bad thing because...
C'est triste parce qu'au final les élus, les personnes élues c'est des personnes qui n'ont pas obtenu la majorité de la population, mais la majorité des personnes qui ont voté.
It's sad because in the end the elected people are people who did not get the majority of the population, but the majority of those who voted.

Quand j'étais plus jeune, j'avais l'impression que les personnes qui se présentaient aux élections présidentielles, c'était des gens qui étaient déjà bien ancrés dans la politique, qui avaient un vrai programme.
When I was younger, I had the impression that the people who were running for the presidential election were people who were already well anchored in politics and had a real programme.
Et maintenant il y a certains candidats qui sortent un peu de nulle part et qui se présentent maintenant aux élections présidentielles.
And now there are some candidates who are coming out of nowhere and now run for presidential elections.
Par exemple Emmanuel Macron, je crois qu'il est entré sur la scène politique vraiment quand il est entré dans le gouvernement français, dans le gouvernement de François Hollande.

Le travail des jeunes aussi parce qu'on n'est peut-être pas la majorité de la population, mais on est peut-être 100 % de l'avenir donc je pense que c'est important.
Youth employment too, because we may not be the majority of the population, but we are perhaps 100% of the future so I think it's important.
