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...

  Ten Years of ECHR : 1998 - 2008 show need of Revival in 2009-2010 coinciding with 2009 EU Election
   

A threefold, coordinated move by new Top French Political actors in the 2009 EU Parliament Elections, expressed in Strasbourg a will to boost Europe's Political dimension close to Citizens' concerns, going from protection of Economy to defence of Human Rights.    

The move met an exceptional ECHR's call for a "revival" of Human Rights' protection mechanism', in a Mega-Conference, early 2010.   

Obviously focusing on June 2009 Elections to EU Parliament, it involved from the outset the recently nominated "dual" Head of French Governing Party (UMP)  Michel BARNIER and Rachida DATI :

imag0282_400

     - "As President Sarkozy has clearly said, we (France) are in favor of a Strong, Sovereign and Independent, Political Europe, which protects its Citizens, and not for a large Super-Market, nor for a Europe under influence",

    "This goes for everything, including Energy", added to "EuroFora" the experienced former EU Commissioner, Minister of Foreign affairs, currently of Agriculture and Sarkozy's new pick as Leader of the Governing party UMP to EU 2009 Election, Michel BARNIER                                              .                             

  - Human Rights are important because they are at the Heart of the Political Europe that we aspire for : I.e. a Europe able to act and protect its Citizens, stressed also the New French Minister for European affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE, while meeting Strasbourg's Journalists at his first visit to the CoE.   

imag0313_400_01 

This is one of the main interests for CoE, which is also a natural place for cooperation between EU countries and Russia or Turkey, which was recently helpful at the Middle East crisis, he added.

The move gained momentum with French Minister of Justice, Rachida Dati's main observations at ECHR's 5Oth Anniversary :   

- "While we are seeking Europe's Borders and Identity, you (ECHR) remind us also of its Values", Human Rights, Dati noted.   

Citizens seek more and more often ECHR's help, and the tempo accelerates, Europa awaits a symbol, while national legal orders are not freezed   

And she expressed "support" to ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa's call to satisfy the vital need to revigorate the PanEuropean Court by deciding big changes at a High-Level Conference open to a large audience, a kind of "Etats Generaux" of Human Rights, at the beginning of 2010.

It's not so much the recently growing number of applications for Russia or Ukraine etc, which seems to be Costa's main concern : In fact, the cases declared "admissible" are much fewer...    

But rather the persistent violations of Human Rights, sometimes very grave (ie. murders, torture, abritrary deprivation of liberty, oppression of freedom of speech, destructions of homes/properties, etc), despite numerous, repeated condemnations by ECHR. So that CoE's Ministers, due to "supervise execution" of ECHR's judgements, are overloaded.   

F.ex. most Media noted that Turkey still remains, even in 2008, the 1st among 47 CoE member States in the number of condemnations by ECHR :  257, compared to 233 for Russia, with a population more than the double..    

The problem is that it's not the 1st time at all : During all the last Decade 1998-2008, Turkey was condemned by ECHR much more than any other State, and for particularly grave violations :   

- 1.652 condemnations, compared to 605 for Russia, 548 for Poland, 494 for France, 476 for Ukraine, etc.   

Italy's second place with 1.394 condemnations is a misleading false appearance : In fact, most of them (999) concern mere "procedural delays" in national courts. Same for France.   

On the contrary, Turkey was condemned 180 times for Killings, 192 times for Torture or Inhuman/Degrading treatments, 340 times for arbitrary deprivation of Liberty, 528 times for "Unfair trial", and 169 times for oppression of Freedom of speech, (etc). And the latest, 2008 numbers, indicate no change in this trend, (See supra).   

The current Spanish CoE Presidency (November 2008 - May 2009) has made of the implementation of ECHR's judgements its 1st Priority.   

ECHR's President, Jean-Paul Costa, stressed in its 2009 Annual Press Conference, CoE Member States' obligation to implement the judgements, according to Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights.   

Moreover, if CoE's Committee of Ministers delays to ensure implementation, then, the repetition of violations in similar cases provokes a multiplication of complaints tabled to the Court, which overload the mecanism for the protection of Human Rights, denounced Costa.          

A series of Debates on "the situation of Human Rights in Europe", focusing on the "need to fight against Impunity" of perpetrators of grave crimes, is  currently prepared by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly for the session of June 2009.  

The final Timing comes shortly AFTER the EU Elections, but the main Reports should have been adopted before.

Meanwhile, French President Sarkozy and German Chancelor Merkel's recent call "for a Political Europe" in 2009 EU Elections (See earlier "correspondence from Paris, Elysee Palace), seems more and more endorsed also by other EU Countries' Top MEPs :

Thus, f.ex., EU Parliament's 1st vice-President, Greek MEP Mrs Rodi KRATSA, speaking to "EuroFora", agreed that 2009 EU Election would be a "naturally good" opportunity to debate what really interests EU Citizens : "The Future of a Political Europe, able to face the Economic Crisis, with a Culture and identity which attracts the People"
