Abstract

A number of commentators have proposed the creation of a ‘dual mandate’ system whereby national politicians would be appointed to the European Parliament instead of directly elected MEPs. Stuart Brown calculates how this system would alter the composition of the Parliament. He writes that regardless of the precise system used, a reform of this nature would greatly increase representation for the mainstream political groups at the expense of Eurosceptic and populist parties.
