*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Invited to the Hybrid Annual Video-Conference of EU Ombudsmen's Network for the Year 2022, "Eurofora" (who has covered for the Press such key events since their Original Inception by Söderman, from Finland, a former Human Rights Activist, on 1996 : See, inter alia, also : .... + ..., etc), Experienced in vivo such a real Issue during Nowadays Events, as Warned by O'Reilly, from Ireland, a former Journalist, on the occasion of the presentation of Our Project on Europe's Future, ("4G", alias : Digital Dialogue before Democratic Decisions), whose works at EU Parliament are due to Conclude Next Week :

    -"Digitalisation of Public services' ...  importance lies ...to that Vital connection between those who Govern, and those who are Governed. A public Administration that Risks being Separated  from its Citizens by a Badly thought out approach to the very Technologies that are supposed to Connect", has "gone Wrong" and "will Inevitably Lessen Trust – a Key element of a functioning Democracy. Technological advances can ... bring huge benefits... but, ...we have to be Alert to potential Harms", stresed Emily O'Reilly from the outset.

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

    Earlier, O'Reilly had Told "Eurofora" that Our Prjpject (2019) was "a Big Issue", and a Matter of Political Will", that she Felt "it May be Open", (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euombudsmanoneurofforaproject). As for French President Macron, he had Told Us that he "Yes, Certainly", looked forward into Continung Debates with the People Before Decisions, and, Questioned by "Eurofora" on Relevant "Lisbon Treaty"'s Articles, he Positively Replied that "at least, "I Wish to Do so'", (See:  http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/macronforcitizensdebatesalsoafter2019.html).  Meanwhile, EUOMbudswoùan's Experienced Press Director, Gundi.Gadesmann, heard "Eurofora's analysis of Lisbon Treaties' Articles about EU Citizens' Dialogue before Decisions,and Kindly suggested that, as an Interested Citizen, Journalist and Legal Researcher, we might even Lodge an application to the EUCourt, as it has already happened in similar cases... ( http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euombudsmandecisionandeuroforaproject.html).

Elisa Ferreira, EU Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, introduced to the Session about Digitalisation of Public Administrations", by wondering "how the (EU)Citizens’ Access to Rights have been Affected" until Now, particularly when "the System is Not yet Ready",  considering that it's Not Only about Plans and Intents", as she Characteristicaly pointed out.

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

    ++ Indeed, in the EU Country with the Notoriously Biggest Developments in Digitalisation, Estonia, Ombudswoman Ülle Madise, after Brandishing an EU Citizen's Digital Card, she Warned : - "If Anything Happens, you Must be Ready to Talk to the People", and this means also "Extra Money, and More People, in order To Do It !"...

    +++ Sigificant of the Importance that the current French EU-Presidency-in-office attributes to Digitalisation in this field, is the Fact that it had Also associated to 2022 Conference the French Ombudswoman Claire Hédon, as well as the Dutch and an Italian Ombudsmen (Reinier van Zutphen and Marino Fardelli - Lazio), in Addition to 3 French Experts (Marine Boudeau: Inclusion/Ministry, Clara Deville: Sociologist/INRAE, Thomas Lecourt: Regional/Emmaüs).

    * "Eurofora", Invited to Participate, also by Raising Quastions, Tabled a Topical one, Both to the Participant's "Chat" (i.e. "Greek" Origin Koullepis, an UnKnown "Moderator"FreeLance Journaliste"), and to the EU Obmudsman's Head of Press relations, (i.e. Gundi Gadesmann, by "SMS/Texto" to her Mobile Phone).

 

    Our Brief Text resumed "Eurofora"'s Proposal "4G" for Digital Dialogue among EU Citizens and EU Deciders in Modern Democracy, Before Decisions Affecting People's Lives or Society at large, under Judges' and/or Ombudsmen's Control, as it was Officialy Tabled at the Conference on Europe's Future, and at the Public Law of some EU Member States, (See: ... + ..., etc., as well as Hereby Attached Screenshot Document). Noting the Fact that EU Citizens Panels had reportedly Endorsed many Key Points of that Idea, we asked how they thought that it Might be Advanced Further.

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

    => But, Surprisingly, those Digital Connections were ...UnExpectedly Blocked, under a Hollow Pretext, mecanicaly Claiming that those 4 Short Lines would have ..."Too Many Characters" (sic !), Hindering the "Send" Button to be used by the Invited Participant Journalist !

    Such a blatant Exclusion persisted All the Way from the Beginning of that Conference, almost up to its Last Tens of Minutes... (When, After Many Desperate Attempts to Shorten that -already Brief- Question into Only ...3 Lignes, at last, the Blockade was Lifted, But with a Dilatory Mention : Still 'WAITING for Review"....

    + (Moreover, in Addition, it seems that there were Even somt Silly "Games" or Fraud, since an Initialy Uppward mention "(by) par Angelo Marcopolo", afterwards Became Invisible, leaving as Only Possibility for a mention of a Name "(to) A Angelo Marcopolo", at a Lower Case, (i.e. as if a Participant would be Sending Questions only to ...Himself)  !


 
eu_ombuds_conf_2022_moderator_freelance_j_kapoulis__ep__eurofora_400_01

 

    So that the chosen "Moderator", Despite his own Observation, that Some Questions still Remained to be Answered, Nevertheless, found an Opportunity to Stop everything wthOut seeking Any Answer Even to serious Topical Questions by Invited and Registered Participant Journalists (having +29 Years of Experience in European News 1993-2022, and Authors of Ideas officialy Proposed in the Conference of Europe's Future, with more than 900 Followers registered, and a Solid background in relevant Public Law of EU Member States, just a few Days before COFOE's Final Conclusions)...

    => Therefore, EU Ombudswoman Emily O'Reilly's above-mentioned Warning that a Hastily-made and Clumsy Digitalisation of Public Administration may have Hasardous, Negative, or Catastrophic Consequences to the Detriment of Human Rights and Democracy, indeed, appears fully Justified !

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.

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 ?
