(Partly Updated) - A Pioneer "Rainbow" Coalition of Center-Right Liberals/Conservatives and Independents/Families-ChristianDemocrats etc., eventually joined by "Greens", might take the Lead in Australia, (after Precursor EU attempts initiated at Local/Regional level in Austria's Graz, with thoughts also at National level, and Hamburg's Federated State in Germany, etc), as indicated the 1st "too close to call" Election in the Country's Modern History, where Voters' Majority turned towards various Center-Right Values' candidates, as well as "Greens", away from Labor/Socialists, who lost ground, but keep going until Final Results.

Tony Abbot, the New Leader of Liberals-National/Conservatives' Coalition succeeded to win a crystal-clear Advance with some 500.000 more votes than Labor, getting an edge with 73 MPs (Winning +8 more MPs on 2010 compared to the previous 2007 Election : 65), ahead of Julia Gillard (the out-going Labor Prime Minister) who arrived almost neck to neck with 71 or 72 MPs (Losing - 12 MPs Less from 83 they previously had), compared to 76 needed for a Government, (out of a Total 150) , according to some 80% of Results counted. While "Greens" and others Independents/Small Parties emerge with 1 or 2, and 4 MPs respectively, (Confirming a Steady Rise since 2004 - 2007 earlier Votes).

Most important, the Majority of People's Votes seems clearly focused towards the Center-Right at almost 51% : All Together, Center-Right's Values seem to grow towards more than +48 % , (Liberals 39,5% and Nationals 4%, Family First 2,2% and ChristianDems 1%, etc.), with whom are normaly related also at least 3 Independent MPs, formely National/Conservative Party's militants, adding more than +2,6 %).

On the contrary, Labor's "Socialists" reportedly lost - 5,5 % of Voters falling down to only some 37,9% I.e. risking to remain a Minority at any case, even if they might eventually convince the Greens, unless they pushed all Independents away from their traditional beliefs (See supra)...

Differend trend for  "Greens" who win almost + 4%, reaching up to more than 11 %, of Votes.  But Greens' Bob Brown' withdrew in the Past his support from a former Labor Government, and was strongly against Iraq War, where USA was notoriously pushed by former UK Labor Prime Minister Blair ("Socialist"). this might go even more for new Green MP Adam Brandt who stood against a Labor candidate and won practicaly thanks to Liberal/Nationals' abstention and/or vote...

However, the other Group formed de facto by 4 "key" Independent MPs had already prepared links between at least among the 3 former Nationals/Conservatives MPs in view of the 2010 Election, and reportedly decided, according to Queensland's Bob Katter, (with fellow independents Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott), to support a New Government which "is going to allow Rural Australia to survive".

Leaving the Greens, a 4rth New "Independent" MP Andrew Wilkie, known for his Criticism against Fake Accusations pushing to controversial Iraq Invasion War on 2003, which obliged him to Resign from the Australian Government Intelligence Agency, could be Timely : After Republican/Conservative former US President GWBush's astonishing but honest Regrets for controversial Infos they had given him on Iraq, as he said in a key Interview to US Media at the conclusion of his 9 Years Mandate (2000-2008), several appeals are Now made to the New Liberals/Conservatives' Brittish Government (2010) to open an Efficient, Collective and Transparent Investigation on the case of the Bloody Killing of Critical Expert Dr. Kelly, famous for his denunciation of former Labor/"Socialist" Prime Minister Blair's controversial "Reports" claiming that Iraq was hidding "Weapons of Mass Destruction", etc, generally considered to be among the main instigators of Iraq War. Obviously, Wilkie, (who seems Elected thanks to Liberals/Nationals' Coalition Voters against a Labor Adversary), may start now Interesting Cooperations with the new UK Liberals/Conservatives' Government to find all the Truth on this Darkspot of former Labour pro-War UK Governments, with a New Australian "Rainbow" Coalition Liberals/Conservatives + Independents/Small Parties (See supra).

 "Family First" and "ChristianDemocrats" Fellow Parties gathered together almost 3 %, with some 300.000 Votes, i.e. clearly More than Independents, who, with a Comparatively Smaller result of only 2,6% and 267.000 Votes, nevertheless, got 4 MPs and a "King-maker" role for any New Government, while the first were Excluded from any Representation !  Such blatant Inequalities against Moral Values-oriented People can obviously provoke Legitimate Frustrations and Complaints against some Anti-Democratic Discriminatory and/or Bureaucratic "Tricks", unless a Solution is found, to take into consideration these Numerous Citizens' clearly expressed Beliefs in one way or another...

Abbot's declared intention to renew a Strategic turn towards Simple Working People, and his Coalition-building profile, added to Values, may prove to be better equiped in order to attract Smaller Parties/Independents (3 of whom reportedly were former "National"/Conservatives, close to "Family" and "Christian" Voters) and forge a well-cimented New Government Majority based on a Coherent + 51% (See supra). Despite of the fact that even Gillard tried to reach out to some Independents, in a last-minute attempt...

Topical Worldwide Issues on Values as BioEthics (particularly  vis a vis Genetic Manipulation of Human Embryo), as well as Natural Environment Protection might seal a Deal Enlarging the Lib-Nat. Coalition to the "Greens" and/or other New Small Parties' MPs, such as Moral Values'-driven "Families 1st", ChristianDemocrats, Independents, etc.

Such a move might obviously Facilitate Australia's Links with Europe's Franco-German, and even British, Italian, Polish, Romanian, etc. Center-Right Governing Political Majorities, but, perhaps, also Developments : Since, according to some Press Reports, they keep an eye on eventually attracting at least a part of "Greens"/Environmentalists in the foreseeable Future. (Something which had almost started, already, to be, indirectly "tested" also on 2010 Strasbourg-headquartered Alsace Region's Election, where young Wehrling, a former "Green" candidate turned "Centrist", open to possible Agreements with the winner, ChristianDemocrat/UMP Philippe Richert, had succeeded to approach the 5% Threshhold, and was particularly keen on BioEthical issues, as he had told "EuroFora" then). This comes also Timely a few Months before November 2010 US Mid-term Congres Election, which may reportedly witness a Republican Revival : Particularly if it was based on the 2004 GWBush Surprise Win's New Logic, notoriously linked to "Values"-motivated People, who were, nevertheless, almost striped of their Growing Potential by Controversial Manoeuvers of some old Established Aparatchics at GOP's Primaries in last Presidential Elections as early as since March 2008, by practically blocking the Republican Charismatic candidate (Governor Mike Huckabee), while Dem's Charismatic candidate (former Senator Barack Obama) was free to go on : A confirmed Error, which might be Rectified between 2010-2012.

By a curious ..coincidence, Australia's Central-Western areas, pointing towards current Europe,voted predominantly for the No 1 Winner of 2010 Election : the Coalition of Liberals/Nationals+, while some Eastern/Northern areas, looking towards current US, on the contrary had large Labor or differerent votes.. 

Otherwise, Gillard's reported maintainance of a Carbon-Tax bid, even reduced, might, eventually, find at least a short Partial link with certain EU Leaders, (despite several Differencies on other Issues). But her notorious Opposal to former Labor Prime Minister Rudd's pro-Carbon Tax stance, (added to his strong Denonciation of a US-China brokered result at UNO's Climate Change Summit at Copenhagen, 12/2009 criticized as Insufficient : Comp. "EuroFora"'s NewsReports from the spot), that Gillard reportedly dropped after remplacing him, (something which obviously explains the "Leakage" of former Labor Voters towards the Greens in 8/2009), while even EU hasn't yet formed a Common View on that particular point, don't allow any undue enthousiasm..

At any case, any eventual attempt, with whatever Trick, to return back to the out-going Labor Government, wouldn't be "illegitimate", as Abbott stressed, since it would go against People's Majority 2010 verdict ?

Obviously, Democracy cannot ignore that the Australian People gave some 500.000 more Votes to the Center-Right Coalition of Liberals/Nationals-Conservatives, whose main Values seem shared also by at least + 560.000 Independents/Families-Christians Voters more, totalling a Lead of over + 1 Million Citizens ahead (See supra)...

   Renew Europe's Historic Legend with Parthenon's pure white marble at the eve of crucial 2009 EU Elections, was the ambition of an interesting Art Exhibition, with more topical Symbols than expected, organized by EU Parliament's 1st vice-President Rodi Kratsa-Tsagaropoulou and MEP Marie Panayotopoulos- Cassiotou, Chair of the Inter-group on Family policy, during March A session in Strasbourg.     

According to the Ancient Legend, God Zeus, charmed by young Girl Europe, was trasformed into a strong Bull with Wings, and when she tamed him with Human affection, they flew over the Sea to live together in a New Land with large, fertile landscapes.  


- "There, they saw the Continent with a "Large Front" ("Eureia -opse" in Greek => Eur-opse => Europe)", reminded the Sculptor, Mary Papaconstantinou, of the European Women Association, honored by awards in Paris, Athens and Strasbourg.

    Thus, Europe's Legend combines Symbols of Energy and Strength, with caring Human personality, to bring towards New, large Horizons :

    - "Modern Art for this Ancient Greek Legend here in Strasbourg reminds that Europe, placing Human dignity at its heart, always finds the strength to overcome any Crisis towards New achievements. And EU Parliament offers Citizens a chance to artfully interact", said MEP Panayotopoulos-Cassiotou.

    Structured like some Rembrand's pictural sequences, Europe's sculptural exhibition forms a series of many statutes, sized and flat as a PC screen, representing many scenes inspired from the original Legend, "according to Moschos' text, a Writer of the 2nd century B.C.", said Sculptor Mary to "EuroFora".  

    Made by sparkling pure white Marble full of Symbols, they incite to think but also to act, as in front of a Book with half of its pages full of written text, but another half, free to write on white paper..

    While several EU politicians think that one of the most important characteristics of the 2009 EU Elections is that from their outcome may depend Europe's Identity and Future, Culture Minister of Greece, Antonis Samaras (a former MEP) send the message that, precisely, such modern Art linked to Historic legends may help "EU Citizens search the origins of Europe's Identity".

     - "The Legend says that they founded a New City, Thebes, and that reminds us that Europe is always a project of Invention and Creation", added EU Parliament's vice-President, Rodi Kratsa - Tsagaropoulou.

    Sculptor Mary Papaconstantinou said that she "tried for years to find the same White Marble from Penteli Mountain that was used by Praxitelis and all those who created Parthenon", symbol of Democracy and one of the 7 wonders of the World.

    - "By shaping this millenary Greek Marble to revive Europe's Ancien Legend with Modern Art, it reminds that Europe is a Hope for a better Future after Crisis, combining Energy for Development, with care for the Human person", said the sculptor's compatriot from Chios island, famous from French artist Delacroix's historic painting, MEP Panayotopoulos - Cassiotou.

    She now lives with her Family close to Rhine river, at EU's heart, near Bonn, where had started to work for the first time on European issues the new EU Parliament's Secretary General, Klaus Welle :

    By a symbolic coincidence, Europe's legend built anew with Parthenon's marble, marked for ever the beginning of young and energetic Welle's duties as new head of EU Parliament's administration, since he saluted the retiring, out-going S.G., the experienced Harold Rohmer, shortly afterwards, at another gathering on the same floor of Louise Weiss' superb building in Strasbourg...

    Organisers of both events said that it was a pure coincidence. People are free to believe them, or hope otherwise...


**********************

    They disagree in almost everything, except from one thing :

- EU Parliament's Art unites even opposed politicians in a common belief for Europe : Cyprus' example...


imag0859_400

Rarely united together, but posing for "EuroFora" with the statute of Europe and Zeus flying over the Sea, ChristianDemocrat/EPP's MEP Yannis Kasulides, a frontrunner Presidential candidate in 2008, former Foreign Minister and Government Spokesman, and EuroLeft's MEP Kyriakos Triantafylides, Chairman of EU - Palestinian Council delegation, from the governing party AKEL (new Left) of the elected President, disagree on almost everything, except from their common claim that Europe of the Ancient Legend, when she flew with God Zeus from Ancient Phynecia to the West, must have crossed the island of Cyprus !

Hard to prove the contrary, 3.000 years later...

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
