So, because there is a ministerial duty to answer these petitions anyway, Polis is then set as a kind of signal-through-noise tool. I wouldn’t say noise cancellation, but it’s at least a kind of catalyst tool because nobody has the time to read through the 5,000 petitions. It’s impossible. But if you, instead of a normal petition board, if you have a pro column and a con column, and if you set SSD, the Polis statements, the top three or top four ideas from the pro and con column, this is something we learned from the Icelandic Better Reykjavik system, then you very quickly get the rough consensus, as well as the points of division and the bridges, and then the minister’s team only have to process like three A4 pages instead of like 300, right?
