*From Brussels to Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Stonger and quite Different than usually Expected, interesting New potential Political Patterns appear to Emerge from Today's 2017 Parliamentary Elections in the Czech Republic, that one may Clearly see, as Brightly as through a Bohemian Crystal, an Overall Image ressembling to a kind of Brand New Popular Aspiration for a version of Historic British Publicist Writer, Herbert Spencer's famous Book :  "Man versus the State", to be adequately accomodated perhaps in a Franz Kafka's "the Castle" context, if one might Dream...


+ While Hard Realities also plead for an obvious Swift from the People in favour of what may be named a "New Right", against what some Criticise as an "Establishment"'s so-called "Left", roughly speaking, (See Infra)...


++ The Additional Fact that, by an Extraordinary but Symbolic Coincidence, all this takes place while the Czech Republic currently Holds a big Responsibility as rotating President (from May to November 2017) of the PanEuropean CoE's Organisation for Democracy, Human Rights, and Rule of Law, Headquartered in Strasbourg, naturally gives an even more Spicy flavour to the Dish that Czech People have just Chosen to serve to both their Politicians and all European/Global Observers :


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


 - Notoriously, the most commented Surprize of these 2017 Election, was the Stronger than Expected Win of the Frontrunner "Dissatisfied Citizens"' Movement (ANO) of atypical "Czech Donald Trump", Andrei Babis : A self-made Millionaire in Agri + Media Business, who had run from the start mainly on an Anti-Corruption platform, Critical of the Traditional Political Establishment, until he Clashed with its formerly Strongest Representatives : the "Socialists", resulting, finally, in a Sharper than initially prognosed Downfall of the Socialdemocrat party, after it provoked a Row over a Controversial Tax issue, recently.


Babis' "ANO", that he has described as "a Right-Wing party with Social Empathy", Won now the First place, with about 30 % of the Votes, and 78 MPs, (i.e. an Augmentation of +11% More in Votes, and +31 More MEPs), OutNumbering even the 50 MEPs that used to have, Previously, the Socialists, who had Led the Country's Government for Years, until now, (See Infra).


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


+ In Addition, 2017 Czech Election saw an Exceptional Multiplication of various "New" Parties : More than 19 (i.e. almost the 2/3 of All Parties) !...


>>> One of them even Succeeded to Climb Up to the 3rd Rank in the Country, Winning 22 MPs, with +11% of Votes :


- The "Freedom and Direct Democracy" (SPD) party, named after Nigel Farage's homonymous Group of MEPs in EU Parliament, but Linked also to Marine Le Pen's Rightists, and Founded by Tomio Okamura (a Czech-Japanese), former ChristianDemocrat/EPP of the Right, Opposed to "Islamization" and Oligarchs' Corruption, as well as supporter of Direct Voting.


+ Another New Party : "Independents and Mayors", (Liberal-Conservatives, who recently got 1 MEP in EU Parliament), Won 6 MPs at the National Czech Assembly, with 5,2% of Votes.

++ But it's a ReNovated "Pirate"' Party, which also Created a Surprize by being Propulsed to an Equivalent 3rd Rank ex-equo,  Winning, alike, 22 MPs with about 11% of the Votes, (Astonishingly, from only 1% or 2%  Before), for the First Time in its short History.


"E-Government" and Citizens' Participation in Public Decision-Making, as well as Government's Transparency and Accountability, Freedom of Information and Speech, often basic Social/Health-Care, etc., notoriously were among any real "Pirate" Party's typical Program points, already in the recent Past.


But its New, "propulsion Engine", seems to be mainly a former Anti-Corruption Whistle-Blower (who had reportedly Sacrificed his Job in order to Reveal the Truth about some Shady Politicians shamefuly Exploiting People's Money and Power), Libor Michalek : An Evangelical Christian and Economist who Recently succeeded the Exploit to Bring Together, what's Best in the "Pirates", with the "Greens", and even the "ChristianDemocrats/EPP", Unifying their support for Direct Democracy, fearless Criticism, and Moral Values, respectively, (as it has been done also for his own Election as Senator, in an Exceptional Agreement between those 3 Political Parties, earlier).


I.e. what seems to Personify, in Brief, the Main Substance of Czech People's Aspirations, all accross the entire Spectrum of Results in these October 2017 Elections (Comp. Supra and Infra)...


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


Among the "Old" Parties, significantly, it's Only the Atypical social-Conservative CDS, "Civic Democratic" party, (Initially a Breakaway from the "Civic Forum"), of former President Vaclav Klaus (Right), which is Not Affected by the Fall of Pre-existing parties, and even Ameliorates its Latest score up to 11,3% (i.e. +3,6% More of Votes), Winning 25 MPs (i.e. +9 More).


But withOut Any relation to its Former 30 - 35% Vote scores, compared to which, it's now Only a Shadow of what it used to be, (while, nevertheless, it holds the Rank of 2nd Party in the country).


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


All the Other Traditional Parties Fall Down sharply :  


The Worst Losses affect the Left, wih the "Socialists" (- 35 MPs Less, Reduced to 7% of Votes Only !), closely Followed by the "Communists" ( - 18 MPs Less, Reduced to 7,8% of Votes), up to the Centrists/Liberals of "TOP 09" ( - 19 MPs Less, Reduced to 5,8% of Votes).


Only the Center-Right of ChristianDemocrats/EPP Limits the Loss to Just -  4 MPs Less, with a Stagnation of Votes: -0,98%
----------------------------------------


=> One among Various possible Combinations for a New Government Coalition in the 200 MPs Strong Parliament in Prague, most probably Led by the "Dissatisfied Citizens"' Movement (ANO) of former Minister Babis, (Comp. Supra), might Include, f.ex., the 100 MPs of the ANO (78) and of "Freedom and Direct Democracy" (22), Together, perhaps, with the 6 MPs of the "Independents and Mayors", and/or the "Pirate" party's 22 MPs, if the Czech People's most "ReNewal" overall Vote (Comp. Supra) would be given Priority.


AnOther, more "Stability"-oriented Variation, could Obviously be for the Top Winner Babis' "Dissatisfied Citizens" ANO's 78 MPs to be Simply associated with the 25 MPs of the "social-Conservatives" of the atypical "Civic Democratic Party", i.e. Totalling, all Together, an Absolute Majority of 103 MPs, possibly Strengthened Further also by the Addition of the ChristianDemocrats/EPP's 10 MPs, (i.e. = Majority of 113 MPs, in the 200-strong Parliament), and/or the "Independents and Mayors"' 6 MPs, (i.e. = Majority of 119 MPs).


However, in the Second case, such a Variation risks to leave at the Opposition :


- Not Only the heavily Defeated center-Left, of the Socialists, Communists, and Liberals (TOP 09), who Total Now only 37 MPs, (i.e. 15 + 15 + 7, respectively);


+ But Also a brand New, Potentialy politically Explosive Mixture of 44 MPs from "Freedom and Direct Democracy", and "Pirate" parties (with 22 + 22 MPs each), may be Sooner or Later joined even by Other like-minded Newcomers, (as, f.ex. the "Independents"), or ReNovated forces (not to exclude f.ex. those "ChrisianDemocrats/EPP" who recently Voted, Together with the "Greens", for a ..."Pirate" party candidate : Comp. Supra)...


And the non-negligeable Fact that, in Addition, various among those Exceptionally Numerous, 17 "New" Parties (currently Totalling More than 6,3%, including the "Greens"), which did Not Yet cross, one by one, the required 5% Threshhold in order to Enter Now in the Parliament, have adopted such Explicit Names as, f.ex., "Free Citizens", "Civic Rights", "Civic Alliance", "Citizen 2011", "H.A.V.E.L", etc., as well as "Nation-Patriotic Union", "Bloc against Islamization - Defense of Homeland", "Vote Right", "Nation Together", "National Front", etc., taken Together also with the Relevant Fact that about 40 % of Registered Voters had chosen now to Abstain, seems to Warn that the above-mentioned "Stability" variation might Fail, sooner or later.


Unless due Precaution is taken in order to Integrate in Mainstream Government Coalition politics, also, at least a Significant Part (if not all) of that Brand "New Political Mixture", clearly Resulting from all the above mentioned Facts of that Exceptional 2017 Czech Election, (Comp. Supra), in a Crystal-clear way, remindful of "Bohemian Glass", World-Famous "for its high Quality, Craftsmanship, beauty and often Innovative Designs", (according to Wikipedia)...


At any case, the New Czech Government's Foreign Minister, whoever may be finally chosen, is due to personally Chair the forhcoming PanEuropean CoE's Committee of Ministers' Summit, on November 15, in Strasbourg, on the occasion of the official handover of CoE's rotating Chairmanship to the successor of the Czech Republic : Denmark.

One of the 5 or 6 EU Countries with a Government currently based on a Unity of the Right.

Χριστόφιας : Απαράδεκτες οι Κόκινες γραμμές Τουρκιας για Κατοχικά Στρατεύματα !

(Απαντήσεις σ ερωτήσεις μας, στη Διάσκεψη Τύπου ΣτΕ)
-----------------------------
* Στρασβούργο/ΑΚΜ/+30 Σεπτεμβρίου 2008/-
------------------------------------------

Σταθερός σε θέσεις αρχών Διεθνούς Δικαίου κι Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων, εκφράζοντας ταυτόχρονα έντονη θέληση για επανένωση της Κύπρου κι ειλικρινή συμφιλίωση όλου του Λαού της, ΕΚων και ΤΚων, αλλά και συνεχώς αντιμέτωπος με πολυσχιδείς συγκεκριμένες συνέπειες της Τουρκικής αδιαλλαξίας κυριως για τα Κατοχικά στρατεύματα εμφανίστηκε ο Πρόεδρος Χριστόφιας στην ΚΣΣΕ, μετά από λόγο του στην Ολομέλεια κι απαντήσεις σ ερωτήσεις ευρωβουλευτών, όπως φάνηκε κι απ όσα δήλωσε κατόπιν σ απάντηση ερωτήσεών μας :

- "Δεν δέχομαι κόκκκνες γραμμές" για διατηρηση Τουρκικών Στρατευματων κι "εγγυήσεων" στην Κύπρο στο μέλλον, εφόσον κι οπως είδαμε μέχρι τώρα, τις μονομερεις εγγυήσεις της Συνθήκης του Λονδίνου τις εκμεταλλεύτηκε η Τουρκία για να εισβάλει στην Κύπρο όπου διατηρεί κατοχικό στρατό πάνω από 30 χρόνια μετά την αποκατάσταση της δημοκρατικής τάξης αφ ότου επανήλθε ο Μακάριος, τόνισε ο Προεδρος Χριστόφιας, όσον αφορά την άρνηση της Τουρκικής πλευράς να συζητήσει καν αρση Στρατιωτικής "εγγύησης" και κηδεμονίας Αγκυρας. Ελπίζω η Τουρκια ν αρχίσει να σκέπτεται και την Ασφάλεια του Κυπριακου Λαού, ΕΚων και ΤΚων, πρόσθεσε,

Συπληρώνοντας δε απάντησή του σ ερώτηση Σ για την πρόσφατη προβολή Διεθνών Ειρηνευτικών Δυνάμεων ΟΗΕ απ τον Γάλλο Πρόεδρο Σαρκόζη, προεδρεύοντα της ΕΕ, με συμμετοχη ΓΓ ΟΗΕ Μπαν Κι Μοον κι εκπροσώπων δυνάμεων ΟΗΕ σε Κύπρο, Λίβανοι και Μέση Ανατολή στη Συνάντηση Αρχηγών Κρατών Μεσογείου τον Ιούλιο στο Παρίσι, πρόσθεσε ότι η Κύπρος ειναι ευγνώμων στον ΟΗΕ και την αναγκαια ειρηνευτική συμβολη του, αλλ ελπίζει να βρεί λύση στο Κυπριακό που θ απαλλάξει ΕΕ, ΣτΕ κι ΟΗΕ απ την ανάγκη ν ασχολειται πάντα με την Κύπρο ΅: Οι ΕΚοι κι οι ΤΚοι έχουν εμπειρία τόσων τραγωδιών αλλά κι ειρηνικής συνύπαρξης που πιστεύω ότι είναι αρκετά ώριμοι για ν αναλάβουν οι ίδιοι, ΕΚοι και ΤΚοι μαζ'ι, την προστασία της κοινής πατριδας μας, κατέληξε.

Ο Πρόεδρος Χριστόφιας προτίμησε, σ άλλη απάντηση του σ ερώτηση της Σ, να τονίσει οτι η ΚΣΣΕ και το ΣτΕ γενικότερα, με το ΕΔΑΔ, μπορεί και πρέπει να παίξει μεγάλο ρόλο και στο Κυπριακό για τον σεβασμο, σε κοινό όφελος ΕΚων και ΤΚωνμ τωβν Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων και του Διεθνοούς Δικαίου, που είναι οι κύριοι τομείς αρμοδιότητάς του, στους οποίους προσβλέπουν κι εκατομύρια Ευρωπαίων πολιτών.

Αλλά τα Τουρκικά Κατοχικά Στρατεύματα ξαναβρέθηκαν αντιμέτωπα και με πολλές άλλες παρατηρήσεις του Προέδρου Χριστόφια, πχ, για τα λιμάνια των Κατεχομενων, για την ολοκλήρωση της συμφωνίας για τη οδο Λήδρα, για τη δυνατότητα ανοίγματος της Αμμοχώστου σ ΕΚους και ΤΚους μ επάνοδο προσφύγων και κοινή διαχείριση διεθνών ανταλλαγών, κπα, ακόμα και σ επάνοδο προσφύγων :

- Στο παρελθόν ΤΚοι είχαν μάταια παρακαλεσει τον Τουρκικό Στρατό ν άρει απαγόρευση να ξαναδώ το οικογενειακό μου σπίτι στην κατεχόμενη περιοχή Κυρήνειας, που είχε κηρυχθεί στρατιωτική περιοχή Μετά από πολλά ΟΧΙ, τελικά μπόρεσα τουλάχιστοιν να περάσω από μια δίοδο, αλλά λυπήθηκ όταν είδα το χωριό μισοκατεστραμένο, αγνώριστο, σπίτια κατηλημένα κπα. Αλλά, αν χρειαζόταν για ειρηνική επανένωση, της Κύπρου, θα ήμουν έτοιμος να επιστρέψω, έστω και κάτω από ΤΚή Διοίκηση, κατέληξε, σ απάντηση ξένου δημοσιθογράφου, υπερασπίζοιντας το δικαίωμα προσφύγων για ελεύθερη επιλογή επιστροφής, αποζημίωσης ή άνταλλαγής σπιτιών και περιουσιών τους χωρίς εξαναγκασμό.

Ελπίζω αύριο ο κ, Ταλάτ να θυμηθεί τις κοινές θέσεις που είχαμε μαζί εδώ και 10 χρόνια, τώρα που η Κύπρος χρειάζεται να ξαναβρέι κοινή γλώσσα που είναι το κοινο συμφέρον του λαο'υ της, Εκων και Τκων, κατέληξε ο Πρόεδρος Χριστόφιας, ανακοινώνοντας δε ότι μπορεί και να τις καταθέσει στις συνομιλιες για το Κυπριακό...

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 ?
