Australia Election: Enigma or New Popular Values Trend emerging with Majority of Votes to the Right?

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Australia, (whose MPs' Delegation has a Special Status to CoE's Assembly in Strasbourg), seems to advance, recently, towards more and more "Strange" Electoral Results, with apparently Uncertain Governments, despite a Growing Popular Trend towards Various New or Old Forms of Center-Right Political Movements, which looks Crystal-clear in plain Democracy terms, partcularly by taking into account simply Australian People's Votes accross several Parties, which unquestionably Lean towards the Right side of the Political Spectrum, even if this passes also through various "Social-Conservative" Parties of Values.


Indeed, at First Sight, a wide-spread Feeling at many Media of the Establishment is a kind of "Pat" situation between the 2 Traditional Parties, (the Liberal-Nationals of the Center-Right, and Labour at its Left), threatening possibly a "Hang" Parliament, with New and/or Independent Movements still Growing Larger, in a quite Incomprehensible Political Landscape, which made a mainstream Media chose an Enigmatic Heading with the Open Question : - "What just Happened ?", while Citizens are invited to Wait, perhaps even ...a whole "Month" (sic !) in order to Learn the really Final Results, once a new mode of Counting would have been completed...

But, in fact, already many point to a Possibility, for the Center-Right Coalition to form a New Government, eventualy Supported by 1 or 2 similarly-minded Independent MPs (See Infra), since an eventual Labour - Greens - Independent makeshift Alternative might prove to be either Impossible or Too Unstable, incoherent and Shaky.


However, one thing stands for Sure : Australian People's Votes apparently gave at least a +7% Lead to an about 42%-Strong Center-Right Coalition (of Nationals-Liberals), compared to a Labour party Condemned to Stay at Only around 35%.

Even Despite the Scandal of Massive Mobile Phones' Messages, send at the Last Minute, at the Eve of that Election, apparently by Fans of the Left, with grossly False and Misleading Claims that the Center-Right would ..."Privatise" the National Health System, i.e. a Nonsense, which, however, Costed several Votes to the detriment of the Coalitiion...


And, probably, a Key Interesting Fact is that Most among those Numerous Growing New and/or Independent Political Movements, (which, taken All Together, represent Now More than + 12 %, Advancing Fast for about +7% More Votes than Before, while Traditional Parties lose, stagnate or get Only +1% more), seem clearly to be mainly Various Parts of a rather Conservative Values Popular Trend, Totaling an Important Amount of almost 660.000 UnRepresented yet Votes, in Addition to the 2 Independent MPs of the pre-existing "Kutter's Australian" and the New "Nick Xenophon" (a Cyprus-origin Politician) grouplets.

This goes, f.ex., also for several among manifold Movements such as "Family First", "Christian-Democrats", "One Nation", (the 3 Front-Runners, who are all Growing), "Rise Up Australia", "Australian Christians", "Defence Veterans", "Liberty Alliance", "Shooters, Fishers and Farmers", and various Other small "Independent" Candidates (Growing +1,5% up to almost 3%), etc.
I.e., mutatis-mutandis, a somewhat Similar Popular Trend that has been Recently Observed also in the Latest Elections in Ireland, Greece, partialy Spain, in Special Terms even at the USA, and several Other Countries accross Europe and the World.


Therefore, already, some Australian Politicians and Medias have reportedly Started to Launch a Call for the Governing National-Liberal Coalition to Get Back towards its "Conservative Values" original Sources, "Closer to the Peopl"e, whose Voice "Must be Heard", as the out-going Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull promissed, (even if this might, perhaps, include also a Return of his predecessor, Tony Abbot, in one way or another, among various possibilities).


Will this Australian People's message be really Listened to, and adequately Heard, or Not ?

 

Meanwhile, at least 4 MP Seats still remain Undetermined, (a Crucial Number for one among the Biggest Traditional Parties to eventualy reach or approch a Majority of 76), while a Growing Lot of Active Voters haven't still Found any adequate Representation to the Australian Parliament yet...

ECHR's President to "EuroFora" on Journalists Gongadze and Adali murders : Principles must apply to all States, without discrimination.


+ ECHR's Statistics on Freedom of Expression (See below).


 European Court of Human Rights' President, Jean-Paul Costa, questioned by "EuroFora" on Journalists' murders, as in Gongadze and Adali's cases etc., strongly stressed all CoE Member States' obligation to make efficient Investigations to find and punish those responsible, and underlined that ECHR's case-law's principles must apply to all without any discrimination.

His call was clearly supported by various Top MEPs who denounced a risk of "Double Standards" if some Journalists' murders are investigated, while others don't.

To avoid such risks, CoE's Parliamentary Assembly adopted a Resolution, on the occasion of Ukranian Journalist Gongadze's murder, "stressing", as a matter of general Principle, "the importance it attaches to the safety of Journalists and political activists, especially those linked to opposition groups, in ALL member states of the CoE". All "crimes against journalists and political activists must be investigated ... as a matter of priority, without political interference".

Costa was replying to "EuroFora"s question on the fact that, after CoE's Committee of Ministers, also CoE's Assembly had just adopted a Resolution on Gongadze murder case, based on an ECHR's judgement of 2005, asking a full Investigation from Ukraine, who has found and condemned  in 10 years of jail 2 executants, but not yet the instigators.

While nothing similar was yet done for dissident Turkish Cypriot Kutlu Adali's murder, with 5 bullets shot at his head out of his Family's home in the territories of Cyprus occupied by Ankara's army, despite another ECHR's judgement of the same year 2005, and despite Turkey's claim that nobody was found among those responsible for the murder, and that there was nothing more to do..

In order to be credible and efficient, CoE's mechanisms shouldn't find a way to at least ask for full investigations of all Journalists' murders anywhere they might be committed, without exceptions ?

- "On the larger question that you raised, I'd like to say, since we are in a period of stock-taking on ECHR's 50 Years, that the Court's case-law developed certain concepts ....such as the Positive obligations of States, part of which are also the procedural obligations", started to reply ECHR's President.

 - "Whenever Journalists, Lawyers, Defenders of Human Rights, or even simple Citizens are murdered, the States are held responsible, not only if its their own security forces' agents who committed these murders, but also if they didn't make sufficiently substantial and efficient Investigations", he stressed.

- "I want to strongly underline that we (ECHR) have found in many cases numerous violations of Articles 2 and 3 against States, ....(about) murders or torture, ...because they didn't make enough Investigations in order to try to find and punish those responsible".

- "We (ECHR) do that vis-a-vis all 47 (CoE) Member States, without any discrimination".

"Naturally, the circumstances in each particular case may be differend, and we can't ommit to apply the rules of proof, or the rules of criminal procedure".

"But we try, by all means, to apply these principles of our case-law, to all States", he concluded.

      Costa's call was strongly supported by several Top CoE MEPs, from various Political areas


- "To investigate the murder of one Journalist, and not of another, looks like Double Standards", denounced the President of EuroLeft Group in CoE's Assembly, Dutch MEP Tiny Cox.  

- "What is the reason ? Politics or specificity of a case ? Of course, if Cyprus and Turkey are involved, it's always a Political case"..

- "Murders of Journalists should always be fully investigated, because killing Journalists is not only killing persons, but also killing Free Press".  "We (CoE's Assembly) should do our outmost to help People who are working on Free Press and they are under threat or murdered".

Because for Free Politics, Free Press is a pre-requisitive : Parliamentarians  cannot  function without a Free Press. Not investigating, is not protecting ourselves".

So we should investigate all Journalists' murders : We are talking about Gongadze, about the Cypriot man (Adali), about the Journalist murdered in Moscow one week ago, etc", Cox concluded

- "CoE can' look at these cases differently. CoE can't wear Blinckers  !".
- "If the one is investigated, so has to be also the other. Why there wasn't full investigation ? Why's that ?", wondered British  Socialist MEP, Alan Meale.

- "A good idea" would be to "make a Motion for Resolution", and "join all Journalists' murders. Adali and Gongadze etc", said to "EuroFora" EU Parliament Political affairs Committee's President, Goran Lindbland, ChristianDemocrat MEP from Sweden.

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 ?
