*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...

Pierre Pflimlin's visionary line : Honouring the Memory of the man who wanted to build Europe on the Mountains, based on Spirit !

 

pflimlin.coe.1997_400

One of EuroFora's best inspirators is naturally Pierre Pflimlin :

We had a chance to personally meet the dynamic and experienced former President of both EU Parliament and CoE's Assembly, France's Prime Minister and Strasbourg's Mayor, only at his 90th anniversary, during an Historic speech at the Council of Europe, exceptionally full of people.

But his energetic figure looked more like a youngster of 19 years old, eager to win the Olympic games !..

Visionary, 2P was, from many points of view :

His daughter, Antoinette, Artist-decorator, and Senator Jung, President of a group of friends, confirmed us an Historian's revelation, that Pflimlin had initially the idea to build all European institutions (EU Parliament, Council of Europe, European Court of Human Rights, etc) at the spectacular heights of Oberhausbergen hills, with an eye-catching view of both French Vosges and German Black Forest Mountains, in the midst of a Forest : A real vision to create a brand New European Headquarters with a big ambition !

But, it seems, that "someone in Brussels" found that picture, precisely, too big for his taste, and threw a spanner on the works...

Pflimlin stroke back a Decade ago, at his Historic 1997 farewell speech :

He urged Europeans to find another, more substantial way, to lift Europe to more important Heights in Future :

- "On which basis can we imagine the birth of a great Europe ?", he asked.

"Certainly an Economic basis ! A solid market economy, meeting also the needs of social justice. A Political basis : Europe must become a strong Political Power, able to influence World's changes, naturally for Peace."

"But I believe that the essential foundation of a greater Europe should be of Spiritual nature : .... The great pacific Revolutions were Spiritual Victories" : They expressed "People's main motivation to live in a society with our Values of Liberty, Democracy, respect for Human Dignity".

"Then, the roadmap is ready : Yes, the foundation of the unity for a large Europe is the spiritual heritage, inspired by Christian Humanism and the Humanism of Renaissance, of Enlightenment, from which emerged a Civilisation focused on the Human person".

"Here is the task to be accomplished. It's very difficult".

"The Time approaches when I'll have to pass over the torchlight. God willing, this torch should enlighten the path of those who are going to build, tomorrow, the great Europe, marked by this Spirit".
