*Reims Cathedral-Tau Palace/Angelo Marcopolo/- Between 2 Young Top French Politicians, current Prime Minister Manuel Valls (a Socialist ally of Hollande, of Spanish origin, Married to a Jewish Wife), and President ad interim of Main Opposition Party "the Republicans", recently elected Head of the New Big Auvergne/Rhone-Alpes Region at the Franco-Swiss-Italian Borders , Alain Wauquiez (a self-declared Sarkozy faithful), significantly Both personaly Present at an Exceptionaly Important, 1st Annual Convention of the Brand New "Regions of France" union of 18 Regions, as Recently re-shuffled, mostly via Fusions in Bigger areas, easing Economic Policy, (without excluding, naturaly, also certain Other Young Top Hopeful, as, f.ex., Benoit Hamon, Emmanuel Macron, Bruno LeMaire, Marion Marechal-Le Pen, etc., who were, however, Absent at ToNight's Event), Nobody Knows yet if will Emerge, or not, a  "New King of France", in the forthcoming, April-May 2017, crucial French Presidential Election, (obviously Important also for All Europe, and well beyond), if not, perhaps, still Later-on...

At any case, it's a Fact that Both spoke to "Eurofora", on Brief but Topical Issues, this Evening, at an Extension of the Historic Reims' Cathedral, where Joan of Arc had notoriously struggled to Coronate the King of France who would succeed to Liberate the Country from a former English Army Invasion and Occupation of its Western Regions, inside the prestigious "Palace of Tau".

They were all Invited by the New President of all French Region's union, Philippe Richert from Strasbourg, (and recently Elected as the 1st President of the New, "Great East" Region of Alsace-Lorraine and Champagne/Ardennes, Comp. several Richert's replies to various "Eurofora"'s Questions, both in the Past and Nowadays), Together with the President of the French Senate, Gerard Larcher, (another Body with significant Territorial bases, that De Gaulle had notoriously wished to Transform, already as Early as since Back on 1969, with a Popular Referendum, into something Similar to a fully-fledged Federal Council, mainly Composed by reinforced Regions),

in what will be, Tomorrow, Thursday, 29 September 2016, not just a 12th Annual Convention of the Long-time pre-existing former "Association of French Regions" ("AFR"), but rather the 1st Annual Convention of a brand New "Regions of France" ("RoF") Stronger Union, freshly emerging, with a reNewed Popular Mandate's Legitimacy, from the Recent, December 2015 Regional Elections, just after a partialy Controversial, but Important Reform of the Regional DeCentralisation decided by the current Government in France, (Comp. relevant "Eurofora" NewsReports, f.ex., at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/franceregionelelectionsrepublicanswithgreensorfnrightistsforstrasbourg.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/sarkozyautonomousalternativewinsregions.html).

In substance, Prime Minister Valls, spoke to "Eurofora" about, apparently a Possible Fresh Look at Crucial, Long-Term Strategy Choices on Funding High-Tech Projects at Strasbourg's Metropolitan-Regional area, particularly After some relevant, New Local/Regional Developments, (See our specific NewsReports at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/frenchprimeministervallsonhightechfunding.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/frenchprimeministeroninnovationprojects.html).

While President Wauquiez, after personaly Saluting "Eurofora", stressed, with a smile, in front of us and certain other participants of Tonight's event, that, as a matter of general Principle of Democracy, the People should Send Back Home any previously elected Political Representatives who might have Not fullfiled their Pre-electoral Promisses at all...

Inevitably, this matched a Topical link with what appears to be one of the "Hot" Issues of this 2016 "RoF" Convention : I.e. that of a Change of Regions' public Funding, (particularly needed Now, given an important Extension of their Competences), from central State Grants, due to be still Decided Each Year in Paris, towards a Part of the VAT fiscal revenue, almost automatically re-conducted accross the years :


- Will it be practicaly Left, for Final Decision, to a Next National President and Government, due to emerge from the forthcoming 2017 Presidential and Parliamentarian Elections, or shall it be really Decided, in a Legaly-Binding way (at least for 2017), by the Current, still on-going President and Government, during the next 7 or 8 Months ?

Philippe Richert and several others Prefer the 2nd, obviously more Certain, Option, (also for a Better Previsibility and Long-Term Planning of Private and public potential Economic actors and Investors), but, as he Stressed this Evening, "there is a Lot of Work to do, already Tomorrow", i.e. during the All-Day long 1st Annual Convention of the brand New "Regions of France" union, which will be held at the Convention Center of the City of Reims : a real "Symbol", as all Speakers noticed for that Choice of such an Historicaly prestigious location.

This Evening's exceptional Gathering, symbolically took place in the "Palace of Tau", (from the Greek Alphabet's name of the Letter "T", which corresponds to the Shape of that former Episcopal Building that culminates at an Historic Chapel), where used to stay those who were Preparing to be coronated, at the adjacent Cathedral of Reims, as New Kings of France soon...

 Joan of Arc's World Famous "vision" and struggle for the coronation of the future Liberator of France at Reims' Cathedral, at the Beginning of the 15th Century, eve of the European "Renaissance" era, was, in fact, preceded by an almost 1 Thousand Years' Older Tradition, steming from Saint Remis' bapteme rite for the Frank King Clovis at 496, at the nearby Reims' more Ancient "Basilica", that she aspired to ReVive anew, obviously pointing at France's and, by a Now very Topical (as many Recent Elections and other Popular Votes throughout the EU clearly indicate) relevant extension, all Europe's fundamentaly Christian roots.

A landmark Monument reminding, precisely, that nowadays crucial point, is also that rare Ancient Sulptrure, in White Marble, which reportedly pictures 3 Baptisms : that of Christ himself, followed by Constantine the Great, Founder of the Longest-thriving, OverMillenary Greek-Christian Empire of Byzance (300 - 1.453, just after Liberating Christian People from former Oppression, and creating that "New Rome" which durated until it was Invaded and Occupied by Ottoman Turks' military attacks), as well as Saint Remi's own baptism, at the Souhern Entrance of Reims' Basilica (a former Abbey) which bears his name until Today) : See relevant "Eurofora" Photo, taken just at our Arrival in Reims, before this Evening's exceptional "RoF" Event, (Comp.

 However, Reims' Historic Symbol is much Wider : It is also Linked with Germany and a larger European Cultural Heritage issue, including some very Topical new offrsprings' potential, as is clearly Indicated, inter alia also by the Fact that visionary Alternative .. Rock Music Group from Germany "Eloy" (from World-Famous, Visionary Science-Fiction Writer H.G. Wells' "Time Machine" landmark Book), has already published a "Joan d' Arc" Video-Song in the recent Past, and is even Now preparing a Bigger, Full Version development Project on that throughout 2016, (i.e. at the 1520th Anniversary from the Initial, Historic Consecration of Clovis at Reims, as Early as since back on 496 : Comp. Supra)...

 After also the Recent Tragic ISIS' Terrorist Attack this Summer 2016 even against a defenseless Old Priest inside Saint-Etienne de Rouvray nearby Christian Church, which, by a Timely Coincidence had been Built almost at the Same Century as Reims' Cathedral, (Cf: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/churchattackforeseen.html , mutatis-mutandis, reminding that Burned Church shown at the original "Eloy"'s Video-Song on "Jeanne d' Arc" : Comp. Supra), there is certainly something in Reims' European Cultural History or Europe able to Speak to all French and most European Regions and People throughout all our Continent Today...

 The Participation, Tomorrow, here in Reims, at RoF's Annual 2016 Convention, f.ex. of Mecklenburg-Pomerania German Region representative in Brussels' EU's HQ, Dr. Reinhard Boest, (together with mainstram French MEP Renaud Muselier, Delegated President of PACA Region of Marseilles, and President of ARF's "Europe" Committee), an area where took place the 2007 "G-8" Global Heads of State/Government Summit at Heiligenam (Comp. f.ex. "Eurofora" co-Founder's NewsReport from that Summit, published then at "TCWeekly"+), and from which Region stems both Chancelor Angie Merkel and Germany's President Gauck, (among other Topical Symbolic particularities related to the Historic Re-Unification of Europe after the Fall of Berlin War, but also to much more Recent Issues), is another Symbolic sign pointing at a Similar European Direction.

 sarko_merkel_press_400

    Before the end of 2009, France and Germany will take strong initiatives to open "new Horizons" needed by Europe and the World, going well beyond the current Crisis' management, anounced French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel, reassuring that both a judgement on Lisbon Treaty by nearby Karlsruhe German Federal Court, and the forthcoming National Elections in Germany would confirm their capacity to act.    

They were replying to Press questions in Berlin, after key-regional elections on Sunday, where Merkel's ChristianDemocratic party kept everywhere a strong 1st and won the possibility to forge a New Majority with Liberals at the largest of 3 Landers : Saxony (4 millions inhabitants), while its main competitor, the Socialdemocrat party fell to unprecedented lows : Tackled by the small "Linke" (left) party in Saarland (1 million inhabitants), it became even smaller than it in Saxony and Thuringen (3 million inhabitants), where SPD arrived only third. While its usual partners, the "Greens" also fell down, contrary to CDU's new partners, the FDP Liberals, who go up.

    - "At any case, at the end of the year (2009), if things go as scheduled, we shall take strong initiatives, showing that Europe needs a Franco-German axis, as well as the World, even if it never excludes other" countries to join, replied Sarkozy to a question if France and Germany will revive the "European dream", by "relauncing the EU motor" for the Future, with actions going further than the mere management of the global crisis, (as it was done fex. in the Past with the creation of the "Euro" Monetary zone, etc).

    - "I am convinced that the Franco-German friendship must be constantly nourished by New Projects", he added."There are many areas of cooperation where we intend to take, very soon, some Franco-German initiatives, which will allow to open more Horizons" to the EU, Sarkozy stressed.

    But if "we don't speak about that now, it's only in order to avoid interfering in important elections coming in Germany", he observed. However, "we have already started to consider the Future with the (German) Chancellor, and what we can do in order to honour our predecessors". "We are already speaking about that, and we are preparing things". "I am working very well together with Mrs Merkel, and I wish that it goes on", Sarkozy concluded.

    - "It's important for EU's credibility that France and Germany advance forward together", stressed Merkel from the outset. "Don't worry about Germany's capacity to undertake initiatives" with France, she added. "France and Germany will be perfectly able to make proposals" for the EU.

    -  "After-crisis" plans must be prepared, meanwhile, with measures "advancing progressively", Merkel anounced. And, for the short term, we must deal also with EU Citizens' dismay since they feel that it's a Scandal for some in the Financial Markets to be paid with excessive "Bonuses", etc, she agreed with Sarkozy.

    - "Abuses in financial markets must stop", stressed also Sarkozy. Backing Merkel's announcement that France and Germany call for an EU meeting to forge "a crystal-clear European position" in view of the G-14 Summit at Pittsburg, he warned that "everyone will have to undertake his responsibilities, in front of World's Public Opinion. particularly those who don't want to make the same effort of regulation as France and Germany".

    Moreover, "Global Trade cannot be correctly dealt, without taking into account also Environmental and Social rules", Sarkozy added, referring to recently expressed positions against Unfair Competition via Environmental and/or Social Dumping, (See earlier "EuroFora"'s publications).

    Such moves are obviously linked to the need to ensure at least an elementary respect for Human Rights by Third Countries, (f.ex. exploitation of Children's work, etc) in order to avoid, precisely, any such Social Dumping.

    - "EU has Values, protecting Human Rights and Human Dignity", and "it cannot close its eyes" in front of grave violations, particularly "Torture and/or killings", added, indeed, Sarkozy.

    Thus, "the time comes, where decisions must be taken". But, in case of "Sanctions", "all International opinion should be convinced of the need to take action", he observed.

    Expressed on the occasion of recent developments in Iran, the same principles should logically apply also to other similar cases, including fex. that of Hundreds of ECHR judgements' condemning f;ex. Turkey for grave crimes, (as Torture, brutal Killings, Enforced "Disappearances", Destruction of Family Homes, harassments and oppressive violations of Freedom of Speech, etc).

    Meanwhile, questioned on (EU Commission's chair)  Barroso's bid to succeed himself for a second mandate, they both expressed a "wish" or a "feeling" that "EU Parliament"'s various political Groups might fix a date for decisions "during September". However, is he is endorsed before the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, it will be legally necessary to re-vote anew for a full term of office afterwards, according to EU Legal Experts, revealed recently in Strasbourg the experienced former President of EU Parliament's Constitutional Committee, German Socialist MEP Jo Leinen. And Germany will not vote for Lisbon Treaty's ratification but only "on September 8 and 18", revealed Merkel, ( i.e. after EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg).

    - Therefore, "for EU Commissioners' appointment, it's too early yet, because we must wait for the ratification of Lisbon Treaty" by all 27 EU Member countries, including naturally Ireland's Referendum on early October, said to "EuroFora" the influential President of EU Parliament's largest group of MEPs, Joseph Daul, expressing, however, the hope that a controversial deal with the head of the Socialist Group of MEPs, Martin Schultz of Germany, might hold for Barroso alone, at a forthcoming vote due to fix the Strasbourg plenary's Agenda.

    But MEPs reportedly just "postponed" for 1 week all their previously scheduled group meetings (See : http://www.euractiv.com/en/future-eu/barroso-unveil-summer-homework-week/article-184825 );

    However, while the choice of a new EU Commission's President by EU Parliament is supposed, according to many MEPs' wish, take place according to EU policy issues, paradoxically, this would mean that Barroso's bid would pass before even the anouncement of France and Germany's "initiatives" for EU's "new Horizons"...

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 ?
