I really don't see the point. A forced vote is not better than no vote
(can easily be worse). As far as I know in most countries actual laws
are passed by whoever is present in Parliament (baring very specific
exceptions). If there are few people it's not a problem, it just shows
the issue is either not very important, or the consensus has already
been achieved.
