The current EG consensus is that we should do so:
- 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.
- 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.
