  • Politicians represent the country and therefore we have a right to know what they are doing!

    Politicians represent our countries as citizens of said countries we have a right to know what our elected politicians are up too and if it is beneficial or negligent towards the country they have been elected to lead. Would you like to live in a country you have no idea what the people who are running it are doing? I didn't think so.

  • We should have a right to know

    We should have a right to know because as voters, we have a right to know what sort of person we are voting for. For example, if there is a politician is is against beating children when they mis-behave yet, in their own lives, they themselves, beat up their children.

  • To some extent...

    I'm speaking about Australia, and must I say, a lot of our political decisions revolve around the background and personal life of the politicians. Without the media to report on the 'personal' lives of politicians it is highly possible that the choices we make (politically) could be wrong.
    I am not saying that we should have to know how many children the person has or what restaurant they went to for dinner last night, or even what they are up to in their sexual life. We only need to know about the person's significant choices, e.g. so & so decided to sell his house in order to pay off his gambling bills or so & so decided to quit smoking because he thought that by doing so it would prove to smokers that they too, can do it.
    If we didn't know about the personal lives of some politicians, would it increase the trust and understanding of the possible leaders of our countries? What if you new nothing about the personality and life choices of Tony Abbot or Barack Obama? Would you still be able to stand up and say 'I trust the choices of our leader 100%'?
    So, yes. We do need to know about the personal lives of our politicians, but, only to some extent.

  • Politicians' lives are very significant to our votes.

    We are not saying that we should inspect every little detail of politician’s lives. Like what colour their underwear is, or what time they took that pill, or where they get their haircut. Politicians will be seen a lot on television, but at the end of the day they are not pop star celebrities. Therefore, media should not be going berserk and investigate those silly things I had mentioned earlier. Crucial examples like, their education and their past of inspirations, or if they ever had any significant law breaks.

  • Politicians Lives Need to Be an Open Book

    Yes, politician’s private lives should be public. People have a right to know everything about political candidates lives. If we are going to put our trust in someone by voting for them, we need to know what kind of person they are and what kind of lifestyle they lead. If a politician is not willing to share his private life, then he must have something to hide and is not worthy to represent us.

  • The Private Lives of Politicans Reflect Their Judgment

    While it is reasonable to assume a certain amount of privacy in most home and family life, what one does in those parts of life reflects on an individual's judgment. For politicians, personal judgment is a large part of their jobs, so a certain amount of scrutiny is necessary. Politicians have put themselves into the public sphere intentionally – additional attention should come as no surprise. Many politicians also use their positive home and family life as part of their public campaign, to promote an image of stability. It is unreasonable to assume, then, that negative aspects of that life are not fair game as well.

  • I like to watch memes

    I LIKE DANK MEMES


    ome may say that we need to see what type of person the politician is and we need to know about them however why should their private lives affect their jobs? What goes on in their lives doesn't change how capable or incapable one is with their job. They are still human whether they are politicians or not. They still have rights. One's job or position should not preclude them from having a private life. So what if they have an affair? Who cares about the opinions of their ex girlfriends? Really, what has this world come to?

  • Of course not.

    Their political decisions are enough to base how they will operate in office, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,, , , , , , , That is all. , ,

  • While I agree with politicians' lives shouldn't be public they should prepare their lives since people will be noisy.

  • We have double standards

    Politicians are often criticised for small, possibly irksome behaviour. The reality, is that if the a rumour, or a mistake gets around it could possibly ruin the politician's career. If for instance it was a doctor who had made a mistake, or had a bad day/angry outburst, they could move on and their job would not be at peril. Politicians are human and need to be regarded as such, they are doing a job, and need to be judged on the quality of the job they are doing.

  • We should not interfere politician private life.

    Because politician have right to separate their private life from political life.And its private life is not the right way to judge the politician because if politicians behavior is good with his wife but we donot know its behavior is good with poor people who will comes to share his/her problem.

  • Private lives don't really impact the policies

    Check out the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN General Assembly made shortly after WWII and all those gruesome events. Article 12 specifically says, "no one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honor and reputation." True, American media frequently don't follow this framework anyways, since media companies just care about jumping from one juicy coverage story to the next. But the truth of the matter is, it is indeed a fundamental human right to have a right to privacy. And last I checked, politicians are humans.

  • Ad Hominem Mentality

    Scrutinizing someone's personal life is an ad hominem attack, meaning that is a personal detail about an opponent that has nothing to do with the question. If it is academic fallacy; it has no place at the voting booths or in our minds. It's petty and juvenile to focus on a candidate's personal lives when it's about ideas. Debate should stay in the third person.

    What someone does at home has a minimal effect compared to years of potential policy. Are we to ignore entire economic policy to vote for the "family man"? Enjoy watching the family on television for thirty minutes, while inferior policies are undertaken for two years. Ideas, which ultimately transform into policy should be the only things that matter to voters. Tax rates and foreign policy are complex enough questions. In the rare case of a crime, the party should replace the nominee for the particular office.

    Our politicians should have conflicts of interest and past political deeds looked at, but those greatly affect policy. What we need is someone who follows the Constitution, restores the economy and our common goals, not someone who makes it personal. It should even go as far as a "brown paper bag candidate" if we turn it into a reality show any further. Politicians will affect our lives in office and like with other jobs, should be judged professionally. Someone can be terrible in their personal lives and good at politics, or vice-versa.

  • Manipulation of Press

    There is also a chance that what is actually going on in the private life of politicians is not what is being shared and covered. Press can be unintentionally misleading when they don't have the full story or can be purposely used to undermine someone untruthfully. In politics, even a lie about one's private life, whether it is a sex scandal or anything else, it can mean the end one their career.

  • Cause i dont know
