Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Now the rejects has 68 votes on the Council, needing just 25 more to stop any proposal.
You cannot have Greece, Spain and Italy out of the Euro and Portugal in. And you need to count Cyprus too.

That means the Mediterranean block has:

  • 5 member states
  • 23.95% votes
  • 25.5% population

Blocking minorities are:

  • 15 or 10 states
  • 26% votes
  • 38% population

It is really close on votes.

In the Neurozone, there can be only one.
