Yes they did, but I am speaking of a completely different thing. When I said positions perhabs you thought of ministerial positions, but I meant stuff like oversight authority managers, media company managers, state company managers, judges etc.

Yes, I did think of minsterial positions, and the like. Judges? Media oversight managers? Are these postions not decided independent of the government?? This sounds somewhat... Spanish.

If you have a Grand Coalition so big the opposition doesn't even have a blocking minority, there is no "independent of the government" anymore. That's Proporz to you.

I've been reading the Wikipedia entry, too. Europe is crazy sometimes. Chalk one point to the benefits of the European Union, it seems...
