Rather than having a general election every five years, a portion of the seats should come up for election, say every year or perhaps two.

So if females constitute 50% of the population, it should be that women form 50% of the Parliament. A representative parliament is essential if the interests and dignity of minorities (and oppressed majorities!) are to be given voice...
