Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Germany will elect 96 MEPs. This means 1/97 ~ 1.031% of the votes guarantees a seat.

In 2009 there were three parties above 1% that got no seat, and nearly 6% of the vote went to parties getting fewer than 1% of the seats.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
