    Abstract

    The German Federal Constitutional Court’s ruling is based on a nation state-bound understanding of political representation which does not take the EU’s compounded system into account. Furthermore, it confounds questions of voting structure with questions about the pouvoir constituent. Its emphasis on the equality of peoples over the equality of citizens potentially leads to significant losses of legitimacy. The empirical study shows the wide variety of how political systems deal with the necessary deviation of the principle of one man, one vote.
