Croatia as Norway ? 2/3 Big Presidential Candidates from the Right, with Total Absolute Majority+

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Will Croatia, (who prepares to Lead the EU between January and June 2020, just after succeeding to get brillantly elected also at PanEuropean CoE's General Secretariat, with Marija Buric, for the period of 2019-2024),  evolve like Norway, in internal Politics ?

 In addition to a notoriously Long and Beautiful SeaCoast, added to Natural Wonders at Internal Waterways, (Fjords in Norway, Danube River and Karstic phenomena in Coatia), the currently Richest Scandinavian Country may soon have in common with the Strategically located "Mittel-Europa" Country, even a Political Landscape Advancing towards a popular Unity of all the Right, as the Results of the Crucial 1st Round in its Presdential Election (December 2019-January 2020) have Just Highlighted :

While even German Chancelor Angie Merkel, has earlier hailed as "Best Prime Minister in the World", her Norwegian collegue, Erna Solberg, who Heads a Unity of the Right Government, between ChristianDemocrats/EPP and Rightists,

now it's probably her Croat collegue, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, who looks Well Placed to Definitively Win the Presidential Election on January 2020, judging by the Results of the 1st Round, Today, where the People Voted for her between Socialist Candidate Zoran Milanevic (almost a retired veteran) and Rightist Candidate Miroslav Skoro (a newcomer, supported by a Brand New Coalition).

Indeed, Kolinda (KGK), also a ChristianDemocrat/EPP politician, and outgoing President, got around 27% of the Votes, closely Followed by rightist Miroslav (MS) with around 25%, (i.e. Totaling, Both taken Together, clearly More than the Absolute Majority), while socialist Zoran (ZM) got about 29%, Isolated at the Left, as the Rest of the Votes were Dispersed among Various and Numerous other Small Candidates.

So that, theoretically, with a Potential of, at least, a Majority of + 52 %, in view for the 2nd and Final Round, scheduled, between the 2 Frontrunners, on January 5, 2020, KGK, (who reportedly "Called for All those on the Right side, to Unite, behind her candidacy"), is, normaly, due to Win that race, which may have an Important Influence Also on the Forthcoming, Crucial Parliamentary Elections, scheduled by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, (her Ally at the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party "HDZ" : i.e. "Democratic Union"), also for the Same Year, Later on Autumn 2020.

Mutatis-Mutandis, more or less Similar Political Trends, pleading towards a Unity of the Right, emerged Recently also in Various Other Countries throughout Europe, such as Italy and Germany (according to Regional Elections and Nation-wide Polls in Both), Denmark, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Austria, Spain, etc., (in Addition to a considerable Strengthening of the Rightists also in Sweden, Finland, Belgium, France, etc, not to speak about Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, etc, partly already in Government, without excluding even the Different, but, in fact, Likewise Developments in the UK).


Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, a partly US-Educated Litterature Graduate who studied also Diplomacy, entered her Political Career during the 2 successive Governments of the Most Long-Standing Prime Minister in the History of the Country : Ivo Sanader, (who Succeeded to rapidly Overcome the Scandalous Paradox of having left, in the Past, the 95% Asiatic, 99% Islamized, UnderDevelopped, notoriously Oppressive and Aggressive Turkey, become a Controversial and UnPopular ..."Candidate" to EU Accession, while, at the Same Time, the undeniably European, predominantly Christian, located at the "Heart" of Europe, Democratic and Peaceful Croatia was initially kept Out of the EU - while cultivating Good Relations with the Serbs, whose Minority Party in Croatia was Supporting his Coalition Government, favorable to a sustainable Return of Serbo-Croat Refugees to their Ancestral Land and Family Homes, as he had Often stressed to "Eurofora"s co-Founder), First as European Affairs Minister, and Afterwards as Foreign and European Affairs Minister, (i.e., as Also has done her compatriot Marija Buric, Nowadays the New CoE's Secretary General, who, after serving as a MP in Sanader's era, she had Even been appointed as Vice-Prime Minister). Following unsuccesful attemps by the Socialists to Slander her, and her Husband, when she served as Ambassador to the USA, she became Assistant Secretary General of the NATO, twice. After Surprizingly Winning the 2015 Presidential Election, against an out-going, then, Socialist Candidate, she marked a Symbolic but Real Difference on Policy vis a vis the Socialists during the 2015-2016 Crisis of 1,5 Millions Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants suddenly Smuggled by Turkey through Greece into the EU, and held an UnForgetable role at the Moscow Final Games for the UEFA, side by side with French and Russian Presidents Macron and Putin, where the Ukranian Team made an Impressive Performance.

Rightist Candidate Miroslav Skoro, Now Backed by a Brand New Coalition made of at least 4 Parties, initially a Civil-Engineer, turned into a succesful Musician, Song-Writer and Singer, of Popular but particularly Socio-Political Music, ("Don't touch my Plain", "Heroes don't Cry", etc), was Elected MP during Ivo Sanader's era as Prime Minister, but Resigned in 1 Year, reportedly protesting against ill-treatment by several Establishment's Medias. His surprize Candidacy to the 2019 Presidential Election was announced almost at the Last Minute, but he managed to get the support of 4 or 5 small, Non-Establishment Parties, created at the Post-Sanader era, from various, particularly Conservative (Christian : f.ex. with "Radio Maria" etc, Anti-Bureaucracy : f.ex. "Bridge" of Petrov, or other) areas, which came for the 1st Time together, reaching an unexpected 25% : In Comparison, KGK's previous Competitor at the 3rd place, Back on 2015, had Only ...5%. It would be Natural and Logical if this New Big Political Coalition forms a New Movement in view of the forthcoming, Autumn 2020 Parliamentary Election, for an Alliance of All the Right, with the currentlly Governing Party "HDZ".

On the Contrary, the Socialist Candidate Zoran Milanovic (29%), who Studied Law, was a stuborn Adversary to Ivo Sanader, that he pursued and later Persecuted for alleged "Corruption".  Himself, he arrived into Government Only Once, after what is called the ..."Kukuriku" (sic !) Deal, with 3 Leftist Parties (including that of "Pensioners") and 8 National Minority MPs, negotiated at an homonymous Restaurant...

One of the First Reforms of ZM was to Impose "Medically Assisted Fertilization", resulting into Artificial Births through Technocratic Interferences over Human Genetics, since 2012, while, almost at the Same Time, he Pushed for various so called "Rights" of controversial and unpopular Homosexual Couples, Unable to give Natural Births, (almost Immitating the Former Socialist/Liberal US President Barack Hussein Obama, who had been notoriously Elected with the Biggest Private Funds in America's History, particularlu from "Big Pharma" Lobbies, both on 2008 and 2012, and immediately Strived to Impose, Both Inside the US and at Any Other Countries in the World, even in Poor Africa, the Maximum possible Technocratic Interferences on Human Genome, especially under Pretext of so-called "LGBTI" Agendas, including the so-called "Same Sex Marriage", opening Access to Children)...     

But the Majority of the Croat People had more Fighting Spirit than he thought, so that they Succeeded soon, since 2013, to Organize a Popular Referendum, through the "Citizens' Initiative for (Natural) Family", which Protected the Traditional Definition of Marriage, as "a Union Between a Man and a Woman", thus creating a Constitutional Protection of Natural Families and Natural Births, instead of Controversial and UnPopular "Same Sex Marriage", which Risked to Submit Children under the Power of Homosexuals, under Pretext of "Adoption", and Even to Trigger Numerous Artificial Procreations of Human beings Controlled by Technocrats, (Comp. Supra) : Despite Milanovic's vociferous Opposal, Urging to Vote "No" to that Citizens' Initiative, in fact, the Croatian People Voted a Crystal-Clear, Absolute Super-Majority of 2/3, Reaching as High as ...65% in Favour of that Important Popular Referendum on BioEthics and Humanity's Future ! Nevertheless, Zoran Milanovic persisted to Defy the People, and Imposed a Law on "Partnerships", reportedly giving to Homosexual couples the Same Rights as Married People, Except from that of Adoption, thus Sparing the Children, (which is, in fact, the Most Important)...     

On the Contrary, ZM, (Unlike the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Ivo Sanader : Comp. Supra), has a Reputation of being quite Harsh Against the Neighboring Serb People, (the Relations to whom is Obviously Key for a Peaceful Cooperation in the Western Balkans' Future Integration into the EU), to the point that, (reacting to a "Law on Universal Jurisdiction for War Crimes on the whole Territory of Former Yugoslavia), he has reportedly Accused the Serbian Government to be acting "Arrogantly", and Threatened even to "Block Serbia's EU Accession Negotiations", as well as to adopt a Law allowing Croatia to Prosecute Serbians for alleged Crimes in Kosovo, and  adding that "Serbs want to be Rulers of the Balkans, but are actually a handful of Misery !", according to him, (Source : "Wikipedia").     

However, almost at the Same Time, ZM's Government, curiously, was among the First to "Call on Croatian Companies working in Syria to Withdraw from the Country" since February 2012, and to officially Recognize, since January 2013 (i.e. even Before the Arab League), as "the Only (sic !) Legitimate Representative" of Syria, the Controversial "National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces", which had just been Founded in Doha (Qatar), on November 2012, by a former Imam, and was Associated, inter alia, Also with the so-called "Free Syrian Army" para-Military Gang. + Moreover, Shortly Afterwards, Zoran Milanovic even "Sold Weapons to the Syrian Opposition" (i.e. extremist Islamist Armed Gangs) on February 2013, (i.e. when ISIS' Deadly Terrorists targetting Civilian People, Al-Queda's successors, and other such Islamist Gangs were notoriously Preparing the Invasion/Occupation of a "Caliphate" announced on 2014)...         

After having Lost Twice in a row, at the 2015 and 2016 Parliamentary Elections with his "Socialist" Party, Zoran Milanovic Quit Politics and Became a Private Consultant, with main Client ...Albania.

Comparatively, when KGK had also to face a Period with an Adverse National Government in the Past (betweej 2011 - 2014), she had Managed to be Elected Twice as NATO's Assistant Secretary General, competent for Public Information, in Brussels...

ZM Returned Back to Politics 3 Years Later, seeking Now to become President on 2019-2020, but Facts clearly indicate that, most probably, this could be his 3rd Loss in a Row, ... as Something New seems to be Growing Nowadays around Croatia's "Mittel-Europa" Strategic European Heartland.

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.

    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.                                       

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - "EU itself has set as a Criterium (for EU Enlargement) the "Good Neighborhood relations",  and their absence justifies the "Suspension" EU Negotiations, (f.ex. with Croatia), because of a Border dispute affecting the territorial integrity of an EU Member Country, stressed Slovenian President, Danilo Tuerk, CoE's Chairman in office (May - November 2009), speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg including "EuroFora".    

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".

    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".

EU "Solidarity" ?

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.


Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.

    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.



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 ?
