How are the delegates elected?

A Parliamentary Assembly’s member states initially should be able to decide whether to have their delegates chosen by direct elections or indirectly from within their national parliament. In the latter case, the selection of delegates should reflect the existing political spectrum as closely as possible. In addition, delegates of regional parliaments and parliamentary assemblies could complement national delegates. Some have suggested the possibility of including cities and local authorities as well. Eventually, all delegates should be directly elected by the world's citizens.
