How the poll is supposed to work: Make a cross at the given fields of your nation's political system you have crucial reformations on your mind (also if only vaguely an idea of) and/or see an urgent need for change. This can go both ways. Example: You want more or less direct democracy, make a cross at the Plebiscite. You want restrictions on lobbyism or you want restrictions to be loosened, make a cross at lobbyism. On my mind: Lobbyism/Donations I would like to see the French model to be implemented in Germany. Donations can only be made during the election campaigns and are capped. I also would like that a website is set up where all donations to all parties / politicans are represented in a fashion that makes it as accessible and illustrative as possible. Another more drastic idea is that politicians may not be gifted any money for private use while in office. Electoral system I think the system where you rate all the candidates offers the best way to represent the voters will. Its introduction would be great. Activities of politicians in the private sector IMO politicians should not be allowed to make any money outside of their office salary. This could be accompanied by higher salaries. Level of centralization The German states need more control over the taxes they also get. It is no use if they depend on the federal government's choices in that regard (I believe in America this is well implemented) Organization of the Executive I would like to see a presidential system in Germany where the chief executive is directly elected. This makes him or her more independent of the legislative quarrels. Organization of the Judicial Branch State prosecutors need a higher level of independence, as for instances found in Italy. To only have independent judges is not enough. Plebiscites More direct democracy! (naturally not on tax levels and also other things). Right now there is no direct democracy on the federal level at all in Germany. Role of political parties I am not sure how exactly this should be accomplished, but a party's influence on its members needs to be decreased, individual choices in the legislative body encouraged. I am not sure how because it must not lead to a dysfunctional parliament where nothing can be done.
