Bekim throws himself into politics - in a newly-started party

Bekim Lukač, 20, has always been interested in questions concerning the community and the future. Now he is throwing himself into politics. 'Nyans is an independent party, neither right- nor left-wing. Everyone must be able to feel that they are included, he says.
In September Bekim hopes to win a seat on the municipal council.

Bekim has always been interested in history and politics.

– Especially contemporary questions that are relevant to me and my future, he says.

He is already involved in the Moslem peace movement, but he wants to do more. At the end of last year he came into contact with people in Nyans and felt he had confidence in them.

Why is it necessary to have a new party?

– If today's parties had had a programme for tackling the housing shortage, better integration and health care, and particular questions that affect minorities, Nyans would not have been necessary, he says.

Nyans is neither left- or right-wing. Everyone must be able to feel included, no matter what their religion, ethnic background, culture, sexual preferences or sex.

Mikael Yüksel, who started the party, used to be a member of Centerpartiet.

There are many Moslems on the governing board. Is there not a risk that the party can be seen as a party for Moslems only?

– The members of the board are from different ethnic groups. We'll go hand in hand with minorities, give them the same rights as everyone else. At present Moslems are the most vulnerable, and the Sami and Romani people too. The Sami are not represented at all in parliament.

I've read a lot about the Sami people now, you can really see what injustices they have been subjected to.

What is the most important question in Kristianstad?

– What Gamlegården and the young people here are having to put up with. Elderly people as well. Working on integration and housing issues. It's important that parents can find work. This makes it more likely that the children also get themselves an education and find a job, which reduces the risk of their ending up as criminals. And Islamophobia is widespread, against girls and women who wear a hijab.

In April 2022 there were 1,188 people openly unemployed i Kristianstad municipality. Of those, 645 were new in Sweden. How can more newcomers to Sweden find work?

– Look at their competence. Many people born in another country come here fully educated, but there is a problem in evaluating what they can do. I know doctors who are working as cleaners. I've met a large number of people who are not working in the sector they've been trained for. They could have been very useful to us.
