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

One thing I have wondered about (since the Conservative-Liberal government in the UK a few years ago) is how to get a clear majority when you have more than two parties. As it seems to be now, you have an election, end up with several minority parties, then the party leaders are supposed to work out a coalition.

Another way to do it would be to have a ranked voting system, which would give the voters the choice of the coalition. It would also have the advantage of being "automatic" in the sense that the election results would be calculated immediately, instead of after months of negotiation between the parties.
