Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There is already a similar but more lax system in place for 'European parties' as far as I understand, which is linked to financial support (cf. the failed Libertas effort to register as a European party).

Otherwise I do think that setting it as a hard requirement makes the elections too hard to enter for new parties. I'd think it would be good to switch the entire elections to a mixed member proportional system as it exists in Germany, but with a lower threshold. That's just a dream.

I'd like to see an additional member system introduced in Spain. Fat chance of that.
