Thresholds should be lowered, in order to reduce the number of lost votes. This is especially important for national minorities. If the main threshold, for candidates from one single political party, is lowered from 6 to 5%, minorities would be better represented, and the Parliament would not be composed of only three parties, as since the last elections of 2001. Moreover, independent candidates would also stand a better chance to be elected.
