*Brussels/EPP Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- Replying to an "Eurofora"s Question on the "Hot" Topical Issue of the unfolding French Presidential Election, Crucial for All Europe, the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Parties' President, Joseph Daul, simply Stressed, exceptionaly Tight-Lipped and Enigmatic, that : - "I Wait for the Vote of May 7", 2017.

The main-stream Center-Right "Republican" Party in France, has recently shown notorious signs of various Evolving Contradictions and "Hot" Debates between its Leaders, Members and/or Popular Supporters, Fans and/or Sympathizers, after the Unexpected Results of the 1st Round of these 2017 Presidential Elections, with Many Calling to Vote Emmanuel Macron, (a former Counselor and Minister of Out-going Socialist President Hollande, who hastily made his own makeshift Movement only recently), but several Urging, Instead, to do Anything Else (f.ex., Vote "Blanc" or Abstain, etc) Except from Voting for Marine Le Pen the Former Head of the Controversial Rightist "National Front" Party, (f.ex. Young Laurent Wauquiez, former Minister and now Head of Region, etc), Others Simply prefering to Leave Citizens Free to Decide themselves, (f.ex. the Popular "Manif pour tous" BioEthical Movement,etc), while Some Called even to Vote for Marine Le Pen, (who just Left the "FN" Party's chair), adding, inter alia, also to Neo-Gaullist Dupont-Aignan's declared Support to MLP, Today, (andhe  may become Prime Minister, if she won).


The Socialists have Notoriously Exploited a provoked Division of the Right, between the MainStream Center-Right, and the Controversial "FN"s Rightists, since a Long Time  ago, already from former Socialist President Mitterand's era during the 1980s, also in the 2012 Presidential, until now.


But, Recently, in the Diferend Circumstances of some Other European Countries, several MainStream Center-Right Parties have already Started to Forge Governemental Coalitions with previously Controversial Rightist Parties, f.ex. in Norway, Denmark, possibly Finland, etc., as well as, by a Coincidence, this very Same Week also in Bulgaria, where ChristianDemocrat/EPP f. Prime Minister Boris Boykov is even due to Chair the EU from January 2018...


French Polls' Estimations for the Final, 2nd Round of the Presidential Elections, on May 7, are, at least for the Moment, quite Sketsy and/or Contradictory, (mainly showing still a Macron's Victory, but also a Fast Growing Popular Support for Marine Le Pen, etc), considering also the UnExpected and Totaly UnPrecedented character of this New Situation.


A Final Decision of Leftist Melenchon's 19 % Supporters, who are Mostly Critical against Macron, is expected for Next Monday.

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".
