* Strasbourg/CoE/ACM/- Some Countries undermine any peaceful Change in Syria, because they are Profiting from the on-going Deadly and Destructive, Violent Clashes, denounced the 1st vice-President of the Russian Parliament (Duma), Ivan Melnikov, an experienced former CoE Assembly's MEP and f. Chairman of PACE's Science/Education/Culture Committee, in reply to "EuroFora"s questions, at the sidelines of CoE's 48 Countries' Parliaments Presidents' Bi-Annual Summit, held on 2012 in Strasbourg on September 21 and 22.

 - "EuroFora"s question to President Melnikov reminded the fact that, recently, the Head of Russia's Delegation to PACE (MEP Pushkov) pointed mainly at the need to overcome the Division which still exists inside the Opposition in Syria. How do you feel about that, Do you really believe that if the Syrian opposition was ReUnified, then it might also be better in order to eventually negotiate a peaceful Political Change with the regime ?", we asked.


   The new Head of the Russian Delegation to the CoE, MEP Alexey  Pushkov, had said, in substance, during an interesting debate at CoE's Political Affairs Committee, last April 2012 in Strasbourg, that Russia would not be really opposed to a Political Change in Syria, if it was Peacefully negotiated with the full participation of All the Syrian Opposition, and the current regime :  (Comp. also his brief but relevant statements to "EuroFora", at the CoE in Strasbourg, in a previous NewsReport : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/dumavpresidentonpeopleandparliaments.htm l),

-------------
    - "First of all, there is  room for Negotiations within and with the (Syrian) Opposition. Of course, we know the implications, but there are parties which are capable of negotiations", for a political Change, replied positively  from the outset, Melnikov, to "EuroFora"s Question.


    - "However, the main Problem is another one : There is No Unity among the Countries from which Decisions to Start such Negotiations depend on. And that is the problem. They can't take such a Decision to start Negotiations", Duma's 1st vice-President critically observed.

    => - "It's obvious that there are some Countres for whom the present situation is Profitable, and they don't want to change it", President Melnikov denounced, (apparently hinting also at the Turkish Government, which notoriously searches to exclude the Syrian Kurds a.o. from any eventual Collective Deal on Syria's future, thereby Dividing the Syrian Opposition, as well as to "sell" its Militarist apparatus, despite of its 1984-2012 obvious inability to put a Stop to the Kurdish conflict with Weapons only, while also being probably afraid of eventual consequences also inside Turkey itself, if the recent 2011-2012 3rd Mediterranean Democratic Change Popular Movements succeeded to spread Peacefuly from Morocco up to Neighbouring Syria)...

(Opinion).

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People.

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.
