"It has also been suggested that [an assembly of parliamentarians, consisting of representatives elected by existing national legislatures] could function as a constituent assembly for the development of a directly elected assembly of people.

But care would need to be taken to ensure that the assembly of parliamentarians is the starting point of a journey and does not become the terminal station."
