Necessary democratic reform.

The future EU shouldn't be lead by one or several member-states! Democracy and effective governance don't allow that.
Therefore, one of the most important democratic reforms that the union need is to separate the national representation in EU from the national gouverments.
To do this and to get EU democracy in order, EU need a two chamber parliament.
1) Chamber one is the pan-european parliament elected in a pan-european election. The majority elects the EU government.
2) Chamber two is the chamber for national representation ( replaces EUCO ). The members are elected in every state separately from national elections.
Except for getting accountable leaders this means that the European voters finally can get European solutions for European problems. It also means that we can kiss the scapegoat goodbye.


  1. Could not agree more!!!

    Some thoughts:

    1/ The upper chamber is usually the Senate, some regional or state whether directly or indirectly elected officials!

    2/ The lower chamber is usually the Chamber of Deputies or House of Representatives!

    The second chamber should be the one electing the Commission and perhaps its President too as well or that position can
    be made to be directly elected by the EU citizens with properly established electoral college beforehand!
