eu council - vote calculator

a very useful tool on the server of the eu-council which allows you to calculate the qualified majority vote in the council.

there seems to be one mistake though. according to the protocol of transitional provisions the needed votes decrease proportionately if members do not participate in a vote, which means there has to be a majority of the members participating in the vote and the proportionate share of weighted votes.

the screenshot shows that the tool delivers a positive result with 13 of 26 memberstates casting their vote for a proposal. that would not be the majority of members.
