      Description

      The current EG consensus is that we should do so:

      • Benefits:
        • Greater competition in elections.
        • Easier to remove non-participating members by not re-ratifying, or by voting them out.
        • More turnover would bring fresh ideas into the EC.
      • Disadvantages:
        • Potential loss of continuity and "institutional memory.
        • Counter-argument: the ratification process, and hopefully the voters' common-sense, will ensure that those who contribute are re-elected.
