October 2015 | The former Nirvana bassist, Krist Novoselic, loves politics and has become an election reform advocate
Former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic has spoken out on electoral reform, advocating for a style like “they have in Europe” that allows for several successful candidates in a single electoral area.
He’s clearly not talking about the British system (the system Novoselic describes has a lot in common with the Irish single transferable vote, multi-candidate parliamentary elections), but his political interest dates back to his Nirvana days.
Novoselic is an outspoken supporter of a group called Citizens United, and singled out Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders – who has been dismissive of the group – in particular:
“Bernie Sanders… I’m concerned about the position he takes on Citizens United… You have someone like Bernie Sanders who stands in front of a crowd of 14,000 people and he’s disparaging the term ‘citizens united.’ Last I checked, citizens united – coming together – is a good thing,” Novoselic said.
“They skew the districts to represent themselves,” Novoselic argues of American leaders. “Most districts would have two Democrats and one Republican, or one Republican and two Democrats in proportional representation.”
“If you want political equality, you need to put power in the hands of the voters to elect people. You have urban Republicans and rural Democrats and you need space for independents.”
Novoselic also mentions that he sometimes dreams of Kurt Cobain, calling the experience “beautiful. I just love it.”
Watch Krist’s comments, which also include a brief discussion of the images of grunge and hair metal (“we had flannels shirts and facial hair but we were feminine”), below:
