Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
By that last part I wanted to emphasise that although a minority deputy is associated with a specific constituency, he or she can nevertheless represent a minority that isn't necessarily contained entirely within the constituency. Maybe something similar could be implemented for the European parliament, which would allow for say "The Romani People's European Party" to win seats without necessarily gaining enough votes in a specific constituency.
