*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- In one of the First Post-Virus' Confinement Elections in Europe, the People of Croatia, (who held the EU Presidency at the 1st Half of 2020), Massively Voted, in an almost 2/3 Super Majority, above + 62% for the Right Side of the Political Spectrum !

This Popular Vote Won a Large, Crystal-clear Majority of about 95 MP Seats for the Right, out of a Total of 151.

On the Contrary, the Left Side of the Political Spectrum got Only a Minority of about 35% of the Votes, resulting in just 35 MPs, (after Losing - 12 Seats in all)...

-------------------

    Naturaly the Leading Party of the Right is that of the incumbent Government, the "Croatian Democratic Union" ("HDZ" : ChristianDemocrats/EPP), of Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, which got 37,26% of the Votes and 66 MPs, Winning +5 More than Before, (See, f.ex., Prime Minister Plenkovic's and his former vice-Prime Minister/Foreign Minister Marija Buric's -currently New CoEs Secretary General- Replies to "Eurofora"'s Questions, when they Chaired the CoE in Strasbourg, at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/primeministerplenkoviconeucoecoop.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeminoritiesprotection20yearsafter.html, etc).     

    In Contrast, at the Left, the "Socialists" of "ReStart" get Only 24,87% of the Votes and 41 MPs, Losing -5 Seats.

    + But a New Party of the Right : called "Homeland", and led by former Presidential Candidate Miroslav Skoro, an Original Singer/Author Artist, (Rightists : See, f.ex. http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/croatiapresidentials2in3right.html, etc), Won almost 11% of the Votes, and 16 MP Seats, now, for the First Time !

    Those Rightists seem to have Won Votes and MP Seats by Attracting mainly Former Abstentionists, and Former Voters from Various Other Pre-Existing Parties at the Right Side of the Political Spectrum, such as, f.ex., the  "Bridge", (alias "Most", of Bozo Petrov), which Lost - 5 MPs, (Keeping just 8), and/or the "People's Party/Liberal Democrats", (alias "HNS-LD", of Stromar), which Lost - 8 MPs, (Keeping Only 1).

    ++ Various Other, Smaller Parties, at the Right Side of the Political Spectrum, either Won, for the 1st Time, a Small Number of MPs, (f.ex., the "Smart" Party, alias "Pametno", of Oreskovic, which Got 4% of the Votes and +3 MPs), or just Kept a Few MPs, (as the "People's Party/Reformists", alias "NS-R" of Cacic, Maintining 1% of the Votes and 1 MP), while Many, Old and New, Tiny Parties of the Right, (such as "Civic party", "Right Ligue", "Authentic Rights", "DemoChristians", "Peasants",  etc) got some Thousands of Votes (from 0,44% to 0,15%), But Not MPs.

--------------------------

    A New Party appeared also at the Left Side of the Political Spectrum : the "Green-Left" (with a "Collective Leadership"), But it Won Less than the New Rightist Party of "HomeLand" (Comp. Supra), getting just 6,9% of the Votes and 7 MPs.

    They, apparently, Profited from a Part of the Loss of - 4 MPs by the "ReStart" of the "Socialists" (Comp. Supra), and/or from the Disappearance of the - 8  MPs of the "Enough of Robbery !" Party, (alias "Human Shield"), perhaps also from the Loss of the "Labour and Solidarity"'s Unique (-1) MP.

    But the Rest, either went to the Right, or to Abstentionists...

----------------------------------

    >>> It's true that this Election, one of the First at the very Beginning of "DeConfinement" phase of the Virus' Cisis, obviously faced a too High Abstention, the Biggest Ever since the "First Democratic" Election of 1990, with a Minority Turnout of Only about 46% among the Registered Voters...

    I.e. it closely Followed that of France's Local Elections (on 28 of June, with More than 60% of Abstentionists !), But with a Little Better Participation in Croatia, where it was about Parliamentary Elections, which Determine the Government of the Country.

-------------------------------------------------

    => These Results clearly show that the Stability of a New Government, according to the Democraticaly expressed Wish of the Croatian People, (Comp. Facts Supra), would depend, Mainly, from an Agreement between the Principal Parties of the Right.

    It's certainly Not with Only a Few, InSufficient MPs Dispersed accross some Marginal, Minority and/or Regionalist Grouplets (with just 3 or, Often, 1 MP...), that the Country might be really Governed...

    UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brownn's promise to French President Sarkozy that Great Britain will proceed to Lisbon Treaty's ratification was certainly fuelled further by MEPs' warning, meanwhile in Strasbourg, that all Enlargement stops until EU can have efficient Institutions for more than 27 member Countries.    

    EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, formally announced this position, after consulting all Political Groups' Chairmen, Monday in Strasbourg, and most MEPs made the point crystal clear during Plenary Debates on Wednesday.   

     Thus, from Thursday, UK's House of Commons, at Westminster, gave its "Green Light" to Lisbon Treaty's ratification, which was completed later-on, after ovecoming some last minute attempts to block the process.

    - In only 3 other Member Countries we feel some "hesitations" : Poland, Czech Republic and Cyprus", said, meanwhile, EU Chairman-in-office, Slovenian Foreign Minister, Dr. Dimitri Ruppel, speaking to EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee in Strasbourg, However, "I didn't hear any explicit refusal", he carefully added.

    Rupel's fears were later bellied in Cyprus' case, where a wide majority of political parties confirmed their support to the EU Treaty, but fears were confirmed in Poland's case, while Czechs said they waited for their Constitutional Court to pronounce itself.

    A paradox is that the Polish President Lech Kaczynski, who reportedly expressed concerns about Lisbon Treaty, had personally signed himself its blueprint, while, on the contrary, Cyprus' new President, Christofias, despite its own party's opposal, declared that he'll respect the signature of his precedessor, former President Tassos Papadopoulos, in favor of EU Treaty.

    But, "all that noise is a misinterpretations by some Western Media : Poland will ratify the EU Treaty, and even earlier than some other Member Countries", declared to "EuroFora", in a surprisingly optimistic tone, the Polish Chairman of EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, Jacek Saryuswolski...

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 ?
