🟢 What is the State of the European Union #SOTEU debate? It's an important moment of #EU #democracy, when MEPs hold the @EU_Commission to account, checking on work done & the #FutureofEurope.

While welcome, @Europarl_EN's attempt to engage citizens ahead of the #StateoftheEU ("discover and contact the MEPs you elected") only highlights the disconnect created by our electoral system based solely on national lists. #StrongerTogetherEU 🇪🇺 1/3
By relying on large & purely proportional lists of candidates, EU elections lead citizens to vote exclusively for a party, while ignoring everything about the candidates themselves and, therefore, about their representatives in the #EuropeanParliament. #StrongerTogetherEU 2/3
The solution is to mix local electoral districts & Member State-based lists w/ overall proportionality (cf. German #Bundestag). All candidates and lists would run across #Europe under the banner of the same #EuropeanParties. #StrongerTogetherEU 3/3
