*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 ?

Former "Green-Red" German government's Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's job at the controversial Turkish pipeline "Nabucco" was denounced as "not proper", "very bad", and "incompatible with Democracy", by the new President of EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group, German Lothar Bisky, replying to an "EuroFora" question.

For once, criticism of Joschka Fischer's doings with Turkey affecting Europe, didn't come only from the Center-Right of the political spectrum, but even from his Left side : The experienced Bisky, who has been chairing all over 1993-2009 the PDS - Die Linke party :  

- "Former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer got involved in dealings with oil-gaz business in a foreign country, Turkey, and its controversial Nabucco pipeline. This raises questions about Democracy, also because of the well known problems of Human Rights violations in that country. Do you thing that this might be abused in order to cover up and close EU's eyes on Human Rights violations ?", "EuroFora" asked Bisky.

- "Nabucco pipeline is (only) at the planning stage". And "there are some difficulties",  he observed from the start. But "'I don't want to get into the details of Nabucco pipeline, because I don't think that there is any point for it at the moment".
 
At any case,  "we  (EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group) strongly believe that Politicians should not get involved in the Energy Business, and all these commercial transactions", President Bisky declared on the Joschka Fiischer's affair.

- "We feel that it's something that shouldn't be done. It's not proper !"           

- "We don't think that it's compatible with Democracy either, and it gets politics into a very Bad track", Bisky went on to denounce.
                                                                                                                                                                        
- "EuroLeft  and "Die Linke" always spoke against that, saying that politicians should not get directly into the arms of private enterprises"

- "It is pretty bad if a former Minister takes a job f.ex. in a major Energy producer. So, it's an issue if a Minister who may have seen excellent opportunities, subsequently gets personally grasp of them, in very serious parts of the economy, once he has given up his (Government) job."

- "It doesn't really make politics in general look any better'", Bisky concluded.

Earlier, this week in Strasbourg, other Journalists had also raised critical questions on former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's involvement in the conroversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline to the President of his own EuroParty : Kohn-Bendit of the "Greens", who, contrary to Bisky, tried to find excuses for Fischer, while criticizing his long-time partner, Schroeder for having done a similar move :

- "Shroeder was chancellor", and he "negociated" with "Russians", who gave him a job only "3 Months" after he resigned from the Government. While "Joschka Fischer", on the contrary, got a job with the controversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline only "4 Years after" he left the Government. "He didn't negociate Nabucco", so I have "no objection", Kohn Bendit claimed.

But, many Facts indicate the contrary :

Joschka Fischer was Foreign Minister in Germany from 1999 up to 2005 : I.e. from the year that EU took the controversial decision to give Turkey a "Candidate" status, until he year it started controversial "accession negotiations, (later declared "open-ended" after Sarkozy-Merkel's arrival from 2005-2007).

During that period was prepared the controversial so-called "Annan" Plan (in fact, drafted by others and attributed afterwards to the former UN SG) on Cyprus, which failed after a Popular Referendum said "No" on 2004 with a large Majoriy of 3/4 : 75%. Mainly because it was criticized for making too much concessions to the Turkish side :  Particularly by restricting Greek Cypriot Refugees' Human Right to return to their ancestral Land and/or get restitution of their Familiy Homes and private properties, usurpated by Ankara's Army since the 1974 militay invasion and continuing occupation of the northern part of Cyprus. And by weakening the Central Government, leaving to 2 "constituent States" so much powers and separate interests that more conflicts appeared inevitable, provoking the danger of a break-down in the foreseable future, with more crisis, troubles, perhaps bloodshed, etc., instead of creating an harmoniously integrated, really one federal State.

The controversial Plan was finalized on March-April 2004 at Burgenstock (Switzerland), curiously in the presence of an Envoy by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, then governed by Joschka Fischer, but in the absence of a French and not even an European Union's Envoy, contrary to what was usually practiced on similar occasions in Switzerland (fex. in 1997 at Montreux, in 2000 at Geneva, etc).

Turkey notoriously exploited the failure of the "Annan" Plan in order to convince the EU to decide to start accession Negotiations on December 2004. This provoked an unprecedented series of Institutional Crisis inside the EU, shortly afterwards, when French and Dutch People rejected, 2 popular EuroReferenda by a majority "'No" vote to the EU Constitutional Treaty on 2005, aggraveted in 2004 a Majority Abstention to EU Elections, etc., followed by the recent Irish "No", etc.

"Nabucco" Gas pipeline was notoriously planned since ..2002. It follows an even earlier idea, for an Oil pipeline Baku-Ceyhun, which started to be prepared on 1999-2001 and was meanwhile recently completed.  

So, facts indicate that what is now at stake is based on decisions made during Joschka Fischer's term as former Foreign Minister, closely interested in Turkey's controversial EU-bid.

To the point that he now practically ...switched jobs with a poliician from Turkey, (the State which pays today openly Joschka Fischer), Mr. Ozdemir, who came earlier in Germany, got fast the nationality, and became EiuroMP in a few years, continuing now as head of the "Greens" in Germany, i.e. in Joschka's former job !...

Such astonishing facts risk, unfotunately, to give to German politician Lothar Bisky's criticism of  representative Democracy a topical meaning :

 - "We (EuroLeft Group) think that what is really at stake is Democracy. It's not only about Gas Pipelines or Energy sources", President Lothar Bisky went on to add in his reply to "EuroFora"'s question on Joscka Fischer's personal interests in the controversial Turkish "Nabuco" pipeline.

Such facts, "make People get more distance from Politics. ...People had had enough, and they are fed up !".

- "That's why we (EuroParliament's "EuroLeft" Group) want to strengthen Direct Democracy in Europe. Citizens should be involved in the (EU) Decision-making. In the end of the day, it's not going to help anyone if Politicians are always taking decisions, without involving Citizens. We want to give a voice to the People of Europe. They've got to have their say in the decisions that are taken. That's one of our absolutely fixed and steadfast views. We want more Direct Democracy in Europe. That's how it can become more effective and stronger", he concluded.
