This reality show, which has been screened under the title "Volksvertreter", brings together for 24 hours representatives of the seven leading German political parties with three people who would not vote for their parties. The programs were broadcast in the weeks leading up to the German election campaign in September.

The program is nominated for the Best Informative Program award at the Deutsche Fernsehpreis awards, which are presented on January 26. The show shares the nomination with two other German programs: ‘Endlich Klartext!’ and ‘Fahrbereitschaft’.

Germany was the first country to produce and broadcast the format created by Pausoka. ZDF is the first public broadcaster to place stakes on this production.
