The UN still grants governments a monopoly on the representation of their societies. This monopoly is no longer tenable. A more inclusive system of global democracy is needed. As an important step towards a fundamental transformation of the UN and the development of a democratic world parliament, I support the creation of a UN Parliamentary Assembly which would give citizen-elected representatives a voice.
