"Adding on new forms of democratic institutions like citizens’ assemblies to an electoral system does not address the underlying democratic problems of an elections-based system."

If a majority in the highest governing authority had candidates who had promised, perhaps legally promised to the best of their abilities to bring into law the binding decisions of Citizens Assemblies then why not?

All government shall have a risk of being corrupted as our present democracies show.

Voting them out at national elections or international elections provides safeguards against such powerful and hazardous institutional dangers.
