*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Australian People show the way ? At the Eve of crucial European Elections, a "Miracle"-nick-named UnExpected Win of the mainstream Right, (given Defeated by the center-Left according to Polls repeated for years !), suddenly surfaced from People's Votes, thanks to a decisive Boost by emerging Rightist Parties.  

A "Labour-Green" parties' Left was seeking a larger Coalition focused mainly on Climate, and a few social measures, while a "National-Liberal" parties' Right was anchored mainly on Economy development and Mass Migration control Issues.

But almost All Establishment's Polls, during more than 2,5 Years, had been consistently Showing that such a center-Left was going to win the race, to the point that even the Mainstream Right's top Politicians believed that they were due to lose this 2019 Election, until the last minute...

Suddenly : Patatrak ! The mainstream Conservative leader Scott Morrison, enthousiastic, cries : - "Miracle !", and most Medias immitate him : Indeed, the real Facts about Australian People's Votes, as they start to be Counted, are completely Opposite to what had been Expected by the Establishment :

=> The center-Left clearly Lost, Labour Party's leader Resigns immediately, and a long Search for his Successor kicks-off, with several others Declining such an offer...

USA's new President Don Trump congratulates Morrison, and boasts that this Australian 2019 Victory is Similar to his own, back on November 2016's US Presidential Election.

- What has really happened, and Why ? Most Medias of the Establishment are partly or even totaly Silent, about what might have been the real Causes of such an UnExpected Political Earthquake. But, Some Journalists have done, at least a part of their job honestly, and, at any case, the Real Facts start to emerge, slowly but steadily, from Official Sources, which all Converge on 1 Key Point :

>>> In Fact, Nobody among the 2 Big Mainstream Political Parties of the Establishment, neither of the Left, nor of the Right, has Not Won any More Votes than Before : On the Contrary, they have Both Lost several Votes, compared to what used to be their electoral performances of the Past...

F.ex., not only the Labor Party lost - 0,87%, at the Left side of the Political Spectrum, followed there by the "Greens" who also lost - 19%, but even the Mainstream Coalition of the Right lost - 0,62% of its previous Votes.

However, even inside that area, there are interesting Differences : F.ex., while the Establishment's traditional main Party of the Right : the big Austalian "Liberals", have Lost the most : - 0,91% of the Votes and -1 MP Less, on the Contrary, its (comparatively) more "Marginal" Partners in their Coalition, the smaller (and Further towards the Right) "National" Party, have Won +0,98% of the Votes and +2 MPs more.

+ But Facts and Numbers clearly reveal that what is Essential and New for the Australian People, moves, in Fact, Elsewhere :

- Indeed, the Rightist, Conservative Party "One Nation" wins much More : + 1,7 % of the Votes, (reaching almost 3 %), while, at the Same Time, another, New Rightist Party : "United Australia", enters the electoral arena by Winning about +3,4 % of the Votes, (and with a Logo strikingly Similar to that of Don Trump in USA : "Make Australia Great Again !")... I.e. Bringing, Together, around +6,5% More Votes to the Right !

+ If one Adds to this, Also some "Independent" MPs elected on 2019 (as several Medias advise), as well as Numerous Various Other Small Rightist Parties, old and new, (such as, f.ex., "Christian Democrats", "Conservative Nationals", "Katter's Australian Party", "Shooters, Fishers and Farmers", "Westerners", "Christians", "Australia First", "Great Australia", etc), then, the Overall Popular Move towards the Right becomes even More Evident.

=> To put it in a nutshell, the Australian People have surprisingly Bellied Establishment's Medias' prognostics and Polls, by unxpectedly Proving that an Emergence of Rightists may Help Mainstream Right to Win, at the last minute, even against all odds...  

Interesting, and Timely Fact. Isn't it ?

Swedish Foreign Minister, Carl Bildt, speaking  to "EuroFora", denied rumors on Turkey's attempts to avoid an EU check of its obligations on Cyprus on December 2009 by blackmailing Nicosia to either accept any deal with intransigeant Turkish claims contrary to EU values on the island's political issue, or face threats against the territorial integriy of the EU island, semi-occupied by Ankara's army.

On the contrary, the incoming EU President-in-office, speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", promissed that he will act for EU Council's decisions on December 2009 assessment of Turkey's commitments on Cyprus to be kept.


    Bildt was asked to react to Cyprus' President Christofias' denunciation, earlier this week, that some want to exert "pressure" on Cyprus in order for Turkey to escape from its obligations.

    Avoiding to mention any precise Deadline, Bildt, however, warned about "Consequences" in case of "failure" to reunite Cyprus, but without saying whose responsibility an eventual deadlock might be.  

 Asked by "EuroFora" if there is a risk for "Turkey's commitments to "be forgotten or downgraded", "despite crystal-clear EU Council decisions and EU Parliament's latest Resolution on the assessment to make at the end of this year on Turkey's obligations", according to rumours that, instead of pressing Turkey, on the contrary, there might be "pressure on Cyprus", even "blackmail", as Media reported and President Christofias denounced this week, Bildt denied :

- "No ! ", he clearly replied.


- On the contrary, invited by "EuroFora", to "reassure that the Swedish EU Presidency (7-12/2009) will keep a fair stance, based on principles",  Bildt promised that "we (Swedish EU Presidency) will be very clear on all of the decisions taken by the (EU) Council".

He added, however, that "we have very numerous decisions that have been taken" by EU Council, as if he warned, also, on something else.

- "'I am not aware of any sort of statements coming out today''", Bildt started to say, on our reference to Cyprus' President Christofias" denunciation of Turkish lobby's manoeuvers this week, replying earlier to 'another"EuroFora"'s question during a Press Conference at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.


 - '"I know the issues that you' are concerned with'", he added, remembering  the statements he gave us when Sweden was chairing the PanEuropean CoE on 2008.

- "But, obviously, .. I think that Cyprus' Peace negotiations are extremenly important".

- And "'I think that we are at a unique moment in History, in the sens that both (Cyprus') President Christofias and Mr. Talat (the Turkish Cypriot leader), are personally convinced of the need to overcome the division".

 - "It's 20 Years since the fall of Berlin Wal, but we still have a Capital in Europe (Nicosia) that's divided". ,

- 'I don't that we should loose any time in overcoming that"..

 - ''We should be aware of the fact that success will bring great benefits, but failure, will also have major consequences. There will not be Status Quo' " It's a question of seeking a solution, or entering another situation, which is somewhat difficult to see exactly how that could evolve", he warned.

- "That being said, this is a negotiation for Cyprus itself", Bildt admitted.

 - ''We (EU) can support, the (EU) Commission primarily, be technically helpful, and then, of course, there is a specific role for the UN, when it comes to the Cyprus' situation".  

- "At least so far. It might not be for ever'. Certainly not for ever, but for this period of time", Bildt added, skiping now any reference to concrete threats on UNO's Peace keeping force in face of more than 40.000 Ankara's soldiers, contrary to some Press claims, (See previous NewsReports).


     Replying to another "EuroFora"'s Question,  if anyone might attempt to "impose a Deadline for the conclusion" of Cyprus' Talks on December 2009, Bildt avoided to speak of any precise Time-frame, and indirectly evoked the fact that  35 Years of Turkish Invasion/Occupation obviously durated too long :

'- "If I was from Cyprus, I would say that the Deadline was Yesterday ! '",
Bildt concluded.

Cyprus' Government Spokesman, Stephanou, reportedly pointed out that "a settlement is possible on December if Turkey changes its stance", accepting a solution for the reunification of the island based on UNO resolutiona and EU principles.

Earlier, EU Chair, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeld, highlighted an "historic opportunity" to "re-Unite" Cyprus according to EU's "basic Values"' (i.e. Human Rights) and 'Rules'", in a last-minute change of his draft speech to EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    The initial Draft spoke only about "healing" the island.

    Significantly, Reinfeldt linked Cyprus' reunification with Turkey's obligations to respect EU's "Values" and "follow" EU's "common Rules" :

    - What is "called Membership Negotiations" should lead, "at- the end of the day", into "sharing a set of common Basic Values (i.e. Human Rights, Democracy, etc), and following common Rules", stressed Reinfeld from the outset.
    
    - "This is something that those on the Outside (of the EU), are now  contemplating", up "to Ankara", for "a solution" on "Cyprus", observed the EU Chairman, immediately afterwards..  

    - "Both sides of Cyprus have been granted a historic opportunity to together reach an agreement on a solution to re-Unite the island, that has been divided for far too long", said Reinfeldt, modifying his draft text.


-  "The Swedish Presidency will act ...in accordance with Commitments EU has made, on the basis of Criteria that apply", "as a Honest Broker", he promised.    

- "To those on the inside (of the EU), allowing the membership process to become an opportunity to solve protracted disputes, can be tempting", he added.


    "In such cases, we must find solutions that can benefit both sides, and open up a way forward. Otherwise, it would jeopardize the progress we have made towards EU integration", Reinfeldt said.
