Elections take place across four days according to local custom and, apart from having to be proportional, the electoral system is chosen by the member state. Germany has been able to ring-fence its national democracy while promoting its preferences for the Eurozone rules, while its more active Constitutional Court has also time and again vetted EU legislation when concerned to safeguard German democratic standards.
