3. How can we expect the members of an upper house to act smarter/ with more integrity than existing politicians who are already meant to be acting in our interest
Because the composition of the Upper House does not reflect the political balance in the Lower House. It’s elected/appointed for a different term and its composition is not in the same proportions as the political balance of parliament. It could even have independent members appointed as well.
