¿El sorteo como mecanismo para la conformación de instituciones políticas debilita la democracia representativa?

This presentation takes a critical approach to the possibility of shaping parliaments through a lottery system instead of traditional elections to solve the so-called crisis of representation. My proposal emphasizes the adverse effects of sortition in the democratic legislative model. However, I also discuss the possibility of including sortition within stages of the democratic process, such as the determination of the political agenda, or the horizontal and vertical accountability of parliamentarians. Incorporating this mechanism into the practices of congresses could improve their functioning and increase their democratic quality.
