*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Replying to an "Eurofora" Question, the Experienced President of ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party (HQ in Brussels), former Long-Time Head of EPP MEPs' Group in EU Parliament, and Strasbourg's Top MEP himself, Joseph Daul, strongly underlined the Fact that Popular Hungary's Prime Minister Victor Orban was Recently Re-Elected for a 3rd Time, has Won really "Democraticaly".


- "Orban was really Elected Democraticaly. Nobody can seriously contest this Fact. That's all !", Daul stressed, with a Big Smile, to "Eurofora", SIgnificantly amidst Various Relevant Reflections, Anouncements and Developments about the Crucial forthcoming EU Elections of May 2019. (See Infra).


- But, even if he naturally Acknowledged the Exceptional Fact that Orban's Re-Election was the 3rd in a Row, (a Score that Only Fellow ChristianDemocrat/EPP German Chancelor Angie Merkel, 4 Times Re-Elected, can Match), and even with a Higher Numer of Votes than previously, becoming, since 2000, for a 4rth Time Prime Minister in Hungary, Nevertheless, Daul diplomatically abstained, at least for the Time being, in his Reply to "Eurofora" relevant Question, from making Now an Explicit Link to his European Party's Strategy for the 2019 EU Election, given also the fact that it still Remains to be Officially Fixed, (See Infra).


Daul is Regularly Hosting, mostly in Brussels, but also Elsewhere in Europe, "EPP Summits" with Heads of State/Government and other Political Leaders' from his Party, including German Chancelor Angie Merkel, Austria's Sebastien Kurz, Hungary's Victor Orban, Romania's Klaus Iohannis, Croatia's Andrej Plenković, etc., Most of whom, by a Timely "Coincidence", currently Hold Office around EU's CENTRAL "HeartLand", (alias "MITTEL-EUROPA")', GeoPolitical Area, spreading around Orban's Hungary, (But Extend also much Further Away, as, f.ex., between Norway's Erna Solberg and Cyprus' Nicos Anastassiades, etc).


- ChristianDemocrats/EPP Party has "a Great Responsibility" for Europe, not only Because it's "the Biggest" in EU Parliament, but also since "We currently have the Presidents of EU Commission (Juncker), EU Council (Tusk) and EU Parliament (Tajani), as well as the EU Chief Negotiator for BREXIT" (Barnier), added to "79 National Political Parties in 41 Countries", Daul reminded from the outset, speaking at one among the first  pre-electoral EPP Meetings before the 2019 Elections in 11 Months, where "Eurofora" was Invited by Strasbourg's MEP Anna Sander.

=> Lessons of recent Austrian, Hungarian, and Italian Elections, (perhaps also Slovenian soon, according to Polls), before similar developments, eventually reach even Sweden on September 2018, Added also to Various Relevant Facts in France, Germany, etc, seem to Stimulate a possible overall EPP policy Shift, which may be Shaped at that Leading European Party's next Congress, scheduled for "November 2018 in Finland", due to "choose our New "Spitzen-Kandidat", as noted Daul, in order to Lead the overall pre-Electoral Campaign and Head towards EU's Top Jobs for the Period of 2019-2024.


It's in this Context that Victor Orban has Recently Supported, during the current n Parliamentary Elections' Campaign in Neighbouring Slovenia, (where lives also an Hungarian Minority represented in that Parliament), his Fellow ChristianDemocrat/EPP Top Candidate, the Experienced former Twice Prime MInister and EU Chairman in office, Janez Jansa, that Polls show Winning this race at next Sunday's Vote.


+ Moreover, Orban is considered to have particularly Good Relations even with the New Italian Government's influential vice-Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini, Head of "Lega" Party, and close to EPP Member, former Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, his Electoral Ally in a Center-Right Coalition, as well as to Georga Bellini's "Fratelli d'Italia" Party, also of the Right, (in Addition to the New Austrian Chancelor Sebastien Kurz, etc). Last, but not least, (Despite some Problems in the Past), he also cultivated particularly Good Relations, after the Historic German Chancelor Helmut Kohl (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/victororbanoneuropeanandnationalreferenda.html), and Now Both with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and USA's New President Don Trump.


 Comp. also Prime Minister Orban's Replies to "Eurofora"s Questions, inter alia, also, f.ex., at Press Conferences in EU Summit in Brussels, when he took over Eu's rotating Presidency on 2010: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/victororbanoneuidentityandenergy.html, EU Parliament in Strasbourg, mainly on 2013 : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/primeministerorbanonvaluesmovementandeuelection.html, and at the EU-27 Summit in Bratislava on 2016 : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/victororbanoneuropeanandnationalreferenda.html, (etc).

 


++ And by anOther such "Coincidence", of important Symbolic Nature, it's Just a Few Days Ago, on 23-24 May 2018, that Orban, who currently Holds the 2017-2018 Presidency of the "Visegrad" Group of Countries (Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia), has Organized a High Profile "International Conference", at Buda's Castle, with Top Expert Invitees also from Other European Countries and even elsewhere in the World (f.ex. USA, etc), precisely about the "Future of Europe", in the run-up to the Crucial EU Summit of December 2018 in Brussels, where EU's 27 Heads of State/Government are notoriously due to Take Decisions on how to eventually Reform the EU for the foreseable Future. Meanwhile, "Visegrad" Group's 4 Countries have Already Published, since the eve of EU's February 2018 Summit, Joint Draft Paper with a "Statement on Europe's Future", containing a Concise but Dense Collective Contribution to the relevant "Debate" which has recently Started, (Comp. inter alia, f.ex., also : ..., etc).

 Victor Orban (since Always a ChristianDemocrat/EPP Member, almost Constantly Present in EPP's Regular Summits in Brussels) is notoriously Supporting Natural Family and Births, (Contrary to Former US President Barack Hussein Obama's notorious Attempts to Impose even the Controversial and UnPopular Submission of Children to the Power of Homosexuals, after "Same Sex Marriages", etc., with the Obvious Risk for a Technocratic Lobby to take Control of Artificially provoked Births of Human Beings, by Exploiting the Sterility of LGBTI Couples), as well as the Human Embryos also against Genetic Manipulations, and has recently Organized a well-attended, landmark "World Family Congress" (US Based, with HQ at Illinois) Annual 2017 International Conference in Budapest. But, in addition, he Explicitly Defends European Culture" and its Historic Cultural Heritage as well as Identity, while also notoriously Opposing UnControlled Mass Irregular Migration and/or Attempts to Impose by Force a progressive but growing Socio-Cultural Mutation of the Original, Historic Population even in UnWilling EU Member Countries, (Obviously Finding there, Nowadays, Various Potential Allies in Most EU States and/or Societies), as well as almost Sychronous, Grave Security Threats that Deadly Islamist Extremists' Terrorism, cowardly Targetting even innocent Civilian People, has recently provoked throughout most Other European Countries. Moreover, Orban has Surprizingly Managed to Safeguard and Boost an Exceptionaly Healthy and Robust Economy, (even if it might Not Yet be Ready for its Future Entry in "€uroZone"'s Area, Carefully prepared for the Future).


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


 - Thus, President Daul, while realistically Foreseeing a "Difficult" "European Election" on 2019, whose main Issues should be, therefore, adequately Tackled On Time, already Anounced that a "Main Piority" would almost certainly be to Efficiently Deal with the Recent Mass "Migration" Problems, (which notoriously emerged since the 2015/2016 UnPrecedented, Sudden "Tsunami" of more than 1,5 Millions of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants entering Europe at Greece's EU External Borders, through Turkey), that he called a "Crucial Issue".

=> That's one of the main reasons for which, inter alia, "Next Week I am going to Poland", Headquarters of EU's External Borders' Protection Service, known as "FRONTEX", in order to Help also "Boost its Staff", since a serious "Augmentantion of their Numbers is now Necessary", particularly in order to Safeguard EU's external Coastlines, Daul anounced.


Meanwhile, those Mass Irregular Migrants who are Not Real Refugees, Must Return Back to their Homeland, he stressed.


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


+ Daul was very Lively Applauded by a Numerous Audience in Strasbourg, earlier this Evening, when he strongly Stressed that "it's Out of Question for Turkey to Enter inside the EU !", because Ankara clearly "does Not Meet the required Conditions", and, particularly, Fustigating, inter alia, also the Brutal "Ethnic Cleansing" notoriously practiced whenever the Turkish Military has Invaded and Occupied any Area, (f.ex. from the Northern Part of Cyprus, and/or the former Armenian Lands before the Genocide, up to the Syrian Kurdish Canton of Afrin, on 2018, etc). And its not expected to seriously Change for at least "until anOther Generation"...

++ However, at the Same Time, it was recently Revealed that some Foreign, Non-European Countries, (f.ex., reportedly "Saudi Arabia", and others), are "Paying more than 200 or 300 €uro those whose Wife will Accept to Wear an Islamic Scarf", he Denounced, amidst Strong Popular Reactions. "This has been Already Noticed f.ex. in some Western Balkan Countries", (such as Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania, etc), "but may be also true inside the EU", Daul Warned.


Nevertheless, the EPP is currently considering to Develop adequat Relations with at least Neighbouring Maghreb Countries' Governing and other Parties, Starting by "Morocco and Tunisia", and eventually Continuing with "Algeria", and, perhaps, even "Libya", as he Highlighted.


- But it's mainly the Need to Ameliorate the Situation of Western Balkan Countries, which "are Inside Europe", while, however, currently Facing, (particularly some among them), certain Serious Problems, that President Daul feels to be "Our Duty", as EU, to Help at least Establish the Rule of Law, adequately Reform Courts, Banks, their Economy, and succesfully Fight Corruption, etc. : - "It's, currently, my main Concern", he revealed, (speaking about a GeoPolitical Area for which it's well known that, particularly Hungary's Orban and Austria's Kurz, have notoriously Expressed a Special Interest for the EU to take Care).


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


+ For the rest, President Daul spoke also about forthcoming Decisions on the important issue of EU's Multi-Annual "Financial Perspectives", (which use to Reflect some Crucial Political Choices), under Discussion at EU Parliament and EU Council ; the present Political Developments in the quest for a New Government in Italy, (for which he had just been Working, Earlier Today Afternoon, inside EU Parliament in Strasbourg, also with the President of the Italian Parliament, etc) ; about the "Difficult Situation" existing in Ukraine, needing Adequate Help ; on the necessary EU Progress in Defence and Scientific/Technological Research/Innovation, but also on the "Big Groups"' current trend to Dominate "Agriculture", (particularly by Combining Several Relevant Activities in order to Reduce Production/Commercialisation Costs, etc); and even ...China :


Indeed, a good Humour - tempered Joseph Daul, apparently kept his new Chinese Anecdote for a "Happy End"... While the EU Leadership is currently Preparing a "Strategic Dialogue" on further developments between Brussels and Beijing, (already partly Discussed, Yesterday Evening, by EU Parliament's Committee on External Trade, which Voted on Amendments to an EU - China Relations Report, on Monday in Strasbourg) He artfully Described, f.ex., how Beijing's Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the EU, had asked for his Help, recently, in Brussels :


- He basically told me that he had No Time to lose, on an Urgent Practical Issue, by engaging into various, Separate Discussions with Each one among EU's Member States, (considering, f.ex., that even the UK was just ..."a Small Island", Compared to the Big Volume of Goods that China wanted to Buy from Europe : See Infra), and Prefered, therefore, to speak with me (as President of 79 EPP Parties, and apparently knowing that Daul was a former Head of Agricultural Trade Unions and Chair of EU Parliament's Committee on Agriculture), in order to Help Broker asap. a Huge Deal on ...700.000 Tonnes of Meat, reportedly Destinated for Consumption by the American "Mc Donald" Fast-Food Shops' Chain, that the Chinese Government would Decide to Welcome in that Big Country of 1,3 Millions Population, (apparently on the Occasion of President Xi's well known attempts to Satisfy New US President Trump's pressing Demands to Drasticaly Lower a Foreign Trade Imbalance between China and the USA)...


 - Indeed, Nobody here can easily Imagine the real Magnitude of China, compared to our usual standards : F.ex., if they Decided to Buy our Wine, it would scarcely remain enough for our own consumption here, Daul Warned, ...hurrying up to announce the Conclusion of his Speech, so that a subsequent, Friendly moment of Wine-Tasting session between the Numerous Participants could Start asap., Before Beijing eventually Buys All that Good Alsacian Wine for itself alone, (according to a Well Known Joke, already used in a Previous Daul's Press Conference in EU Parliament in Strasbourg in the Past, on which "Eurofora" has Published a few years ago)...

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

+ This gave also an Opportunity for a "Family Photo" of President Daul with Strasbourg's MEP Anne Sander's Young Friends, in a Room fully-packed also with Numerous Adults and even more or less Aged People, where MEP Sander had already confirmed to "Eurofora" that her EU Parliament's Committee on Social Affairs, currently has Various Issues of suspected "Social Dumping" and UnFair Competition to Address, while expressing her "Regrets" for the Fact that, during EU Parliament Plenary's Votes, Earlier Today Noon, the Final Version of a Resolution on the "Hot" Issue of "Posted Workers" (Based in an EU Member Country, but Working at anOther one, so that eventual Differences in the respective Costs of Living and Salaries might, perhaps, result in some UnFair Competition practices), "did Not Extend also to Transports", Contrary to a Previous Draft Deal.


However, French EU Affairs v.Minister Nathalie Loiseau had told to Strasbourg's Journalists, including "Eurofora", Earlier this Noon, during a "Press-Lunch" organized by Strasbourg's Press Club (See: ...), that, "at least, the Sector of Transports had been Submitted to an Earlier (Incomplete) Version of EU's Directive on Posted Workers, according to EU Parliament's Vote Today, while, on the Contrary, it was Excluded from that in the Past.


So that, Anyway, this Issue still Remains Open, Waiting for a Necessary Solution asap.

Sarkozy and Merkel : June 2009 solution to May 2005 "NO" ?

 - Will French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel live up from June 2009 to their obvious Historic European mission to revitalize, and re-launch the "European Dream", after the series of 3 "NO" since May 2005 in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, by renewing, and changing the EU with fresh stimulus, big horizons, and values attractive for EU Citizens ?

Whatever views anyone might have, it's a Fact that, recently, EU's political spectrum didn't produce other more charismatic and popular EU leaders than Merkel and Sarkozy, starting from September 2005 and May 2007, respectively.

This trend was confirmed, in one way or another, both during the German EU presidency in 2007 (shared by Merkel with the SPD), and mainly during the French EU Presidency in 2008, (with Sarkozy "free" to move).


The positive 2009 EU Polls are a natural consequence :

- Both with 72% Sarkozy and Merkel are considered by EU Citizens to be "the most Influential" leaders in Europe, by far.

- They are the only EU political leaders to attract a Majority of "Positive" views by EU Citizens, (Merkel over 60%, Sarkozy over 50%, particularly in the continent).

- 60% of EU Citizens find the 2008 French EU Presidency "Good", (and the satisfaction grows up to 67,5% in continental Europe).

The Poll was made by "OpinionWay" in big EU countries as Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, (with the only exception of France), from 26 to 28 May 2009.

sarkozy_merkel_polls_400

But the most important is that both Franco-German leaders seem willing to, at last, really start serious business on EU's indispensable renovation and Renaissance from 2009 : Year of crucial EU and German Elections.

Therefore, this time, the joint European move by Sarkozy and Merkel, which just published a common Franco-German Manifesto, aims to stimulate aspirations and action not only in their respective countries, but also in many other EU "partners", as they say.

Both on EU economy, social values and scientifico-technologic research, as well as on Turkey's controversial EU bid, obviously incompatible with a popular Political Europe, whose Citizens can find a collective Identity and popular Values, they have already started to magnetize various growing voices accross the European landscape :

"Today, more than ever, it' time for action", they stress from the outset.

Facing "an unprecedented Global financial and economic Crisis", "Europeans must get resolutely involved if they want for the World which is being built to meet their Values of Liberty, Solidarity and Justice".

"That's what we want" and "propose to our Partners" :

* "A strong Europe, able to protect us" :

- "We refuse a Bureaucratic EU, which mecanically applies burdensome rules and is afraid of change. We want a European Union which listens what Citizens have to say, which innovates, stimulates".

- "We want a strong and united EU in the World, while also respecting its Member States' Diversity", which "brings Courageous Replies to the Questions of our Times, ensuring our Prosperity :  

This implies to "favor Research and Innovation", "Economic Coordination", to "develop real Policies on Immigrationn, Energy, Defence, and modernise  common policies, particularly Agriculture".

*  "EU must bring immediate replies to the Global Crisis".

- "Lawless liberalism failed". "The Model we want is that of a Responsible Market Economy, which favors Enterpreneurs and Workers, above Speculators ;  Long-term Investment, over immediate profiits".

- "We appeal upon the EU to take, from June, the first decisions to ensure a real European Regulation of Financial Markets, based on coordination and cooperation". "On speculative funds, on fiscal heavens, CEO's and financial operators' earnings, EU must give the example".

- "We call to change the rules of accounts, which are important for our Economy's revival : The competent normative authorities must take action". "The issue of a sufficient Credit offer is of central importance for our Economy". "We don't accept that, during this Financial Crisis, the European Banks' capacity to lend money might be unjustly reduced by Capital's requirements and accountant's rules

* "During the German and French Presidencies, EU has resoçlutely prepared itself for the fight against Global Warming... EU is the 1st and only area in the World to have adopted a package of ambitious and legally binding rules to comply with International Aims"

- "We have now to convince our Friends and Partners, to get involved, in order to atteint, next December at Copenhagen, a Global Agreement worthy of whay is at stake. Our closer ally, the US, but also other big industrial countries, must commit themselves with the same force as the Europeans".

"Green Growth is a Chance ... and an opportunity to create jobs turned towards the Future. Europe must be a leader".

- But, at the same time, we must ensure that our companies remain competitive in the World. The ambitious European involvements on Climat must not lead into a position where EU industry might become a Victim of Unfair Competition. Climat protection and Competitvity must go together. If our International partners refuse to associate themselves to our efforts, we are determined to take measures to protect European Industry"

* "Europe must be more ambitious for its Industry" : "It must favor the emergence of strong European enterprises at a Global level".

- "As long as an International mechanism" to "monitor Public Aids at WTO level, and hinder 3rd Countries to give abusive subsidies to their enterprises, provoking unfair competition", is "not yet set up, we must consider Transitory European Solutions".

* "The current Public Debt is too heavy... We must head anew towards sound public finance, as soon as we'd have passed the crucial stage in this crisis".
-------------------------------------------------

* Last, but not least :  "Europe must play a top-level role in the World"

- "For that purpose,  it needs efficient Institutions. That's why we need Lisbon Treaty". "The 27 Member States decided, last December (2008) that the Treaty should enter into force before the end of this year (2009)". To obtain that, June EU Council must agree "on the Guarantees for Ireland".

- But, "to be able to act, EU needs Borders. An Enlargment without Limits is not possible", Sarkozy and Merkel stressed in an obvious reference to Turkey, etc.

- "In order to be strong, Europe must assume its Values and its Identity". "Human Rights .. are at the basis of our commitment for a Peaceful Development accross the World".

- "For that purpose, we shall strengthen our common Defence and Security policy".
----------------------

* "We are ready to contribute to activate the EU towards the realisation of these aims, with our EU Partners".

"In order to succeed", Europe  "needs the active involvment of all, starting by Citizens themselves. That's why the June 7 rendez-vous is important", and "we are calling all Europeans to vote".

"We are convinced that, if Europe wants, Europe can", they conclude.
-----------------------

Precisely : - What can better forge "Europe's Will" than a "European Consciousness" emerging from political, democratic struggles to face Global Challenges, and open big New Horizons, including by crystal-clear Public Debates, with active EU Citizens' involvement, before the most important EU Decisions affecting People's lives ?

Precisely what "EuroFora"s project warns since 1997-2007, and unprecedented Majority Abstentions, since 1999-2004, added to 3 "NO" to EU Referenda in 2005 and 2007, proved meanwhile..

Let's hope that the Time wasted by some scandalous anti-European and anti-Democratic obstacles of the Past, will stimulate faster, simplified but substantial and persistent, efficient action.-

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 ?
