This brief concept paper proposes a far-reaching institutional reform of the European Union. All EU regions in NUTS1 classification should have local presidential and parliamentary elections. All elected presidents will form the new EU Council with 97 members. This will be the new EU parliament. Then Council members will elect among themselves the EU Executive Board, which will be the EU government. The existing EU bodies: the Commission, Council, Presidency and Parliament will cease to exist. The new EU Council and the EU Executive Board will have a wide range of competences to design and implement EU-wide policies.
