This region has 81 members. Not all of these are active or involved. So I propose a representative democracy.
Every 4 months (or sooner*), the region elects a European Parliament of 20 members (MEPs). The elections will be by party-list proportional representation with a party or candidate needing 5% of the vote to secure seats, or 8% if two or more parties form electoral alliances. Early elections take place if Parliament votes to dissolve early or the Commission fails a vote of confidence and the Parliament cannot elect a new Commission.
Parliament elects a President of the Parliament as its first order of business whenever there is a vacancy and the President presides over all debates and conducts all the votes. The President of the Parliament does not ordinarily vote and votes only to break a tie.
Parliament and the Commission can both propose bills which must be approved by Parliament. The stages of a bill are: proposed with sponsors > debate > amendments (if any) > vote > law (if approved). A bill becomes law when it is approved by Parliament and then signed by the President of the Parliament and the President of the Commission.
European Commission (i.e. Government)
Parliament elects the European Commission as its second order of business whenever there is none. Parties can negotiate between them who will be President of the European Commission or individual candidates can contest. The President of the Commission is elected by absolute majority of parliament (so 11 of 20 MEPs or 10 of 19 MEPs when you do not include the President of Parliament who does not normally vote).
The President of the Commission once elected nominates the other commissioners. Parliament then votes to approve these or not. The President of the Commission is 'first among equals' and sets the direction of that commission.
The European Commission is responsible for the good governance of the region. If at any time Parliament deems it is not doing a suitable job it can hold a vote of confidence. If the Commission passes, it continues as normal. If it fails, then Parliament will have 14 days from the vote to elect a new Commission. If it doesn't it dissolves and elections take place.
Commissioners serve 4 month terms from the day of their election. They cannot be MEPs so any MEP elected must resign from parliament and the next candidate on their party's list takes their seat. Likewise a candidate for the commission presidency does not have to be a MEP and parties can nominate any one to contest the presidency (or individuals without party affiliation can contest the presidency). If Parliament is dissolved, the Commission becomes a caretaker commission until a new commission is appointed.
