Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The arrangement in the Romanian Chamber of Deputies is very interesting, I find. Per the Romanian constitution, all ethnic minorities are entitled to one seat each in the chamber; from this list I count some 18 minorities, some of whom are not particularly numerous, who are entitled to a seat in the chamber (plus the large Hungarian-speaking minority, whose party seem to fulfill a role somewhat similar to the Swedish People's Party here in Finland).

(yes, this a ploy to get my beloved diary some attention via the recent comments. I have no shame.)
