*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- it's Not Excluded that Trump Might be Right, particularly on Mail-in and various Absentees' Votes, a matter Decided by the States, and, at any case, Monitoring on US Presidential Election is "Still an On-Going Process", told "Eurofora" 2 European Top Senior Officers, of the EU and Trans-Atlantic OSCE, respectively, in relation with his 1st Legal Complaint to the US Supreme Court on alleged November 3 Vote's Fraud and Irregularities, lodged just Yesterday, while Just 2 Weeks remain before the Official Reading on States-certified Electors by US Federal Congress on January 6, 2021.

Until Now it's an UnExpected Historic Paradox that USA's Federal Supreme Court has Not yet Examined, Neither Judged on the Merits, Any Legal Complaint on such a "Hot", Serious and Topical Constitutional Law as that of the Still Contested 2020 US Presidential Election, Contrary, f.ex., to what happened Back on 2000, in the Famous "Bush v. Gore" case, Even if the Main Issue raised Nowadays is, in Fact, very Similar to what late Justice Scalia had Named then as concerning the Not-Counting of "Questionable Legality Votes", for the sake of "Democratic Stability" based on People's "Trust", (See, his Opinion, joined also by Other Judges, at : www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usasupremecourtandvotefraud.html, etc).

President Don Trump has Recently Denounced, in his Latest (and "Most Important of all", as he stressed) Speech on alleged Massive Fraud and Gross Irregularities of this 2020 Election, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usa2020electoralfraudproofgrows.html, etc), among others, also the Fact that almost All European Countries Refuse to Accept "Mail-in" and/or other "Absentees'" Ballots, the USA being practicaly Alone to do so Nowadays, (After mainly "Dems"-Governed States, Notoriously Decided to use such kind of Controversial Ballots, Exceptionaly on 2020, Triggering Many Controversies, precisely Because of Fears for Easier "Fraud", and nonobstant about ...400 Cases in Courts, throughout 44 States, which were All Ruled by quite UnTrustworthy Judges ...according to "Partisan" Criteria, as OSCE's Preliminary Report on these 2020 US Elections Denounced).

- EU Commission's Chief Spokesman Eric Mamer, Replying to an "Eurofora"s Question earlier, whether Trump's Claim that the Fraud Risk in US Elections, due to Mail-in, Absentee Votes, etc., would Not exist in Europe, Because Most Europeans Prohibit such Votes, with a Few Exceptions, under Strict Control, is the Truth, or Not, significantly, Did Not Exclude that Trump might be, indeed, Right. He simply Reminded that, in principle, "Elections are Organized by Member States", so that "Questions" about the Existence, or not, of such Fraud Risks, should be "Answered" by the concerned "National Authorities".

= And, Indeed, f.ex. in France, "Eurofora" found that the Legislation does Not Accept Any kind of "Mail-in" or other "Absentees"' Vote, (Even on 2020, f.ex. in Mayors' Elections, Nationwide), But Only the Unique Possibility for a Voter to be, if Necessary, "Represented" to the Polling Station through a "Proxy", i.e. Someone Else : Something Exclusively Reserved for ..."Handicaped" People and/or "ExPats", who Must, Previously, Meet Personaly with a Public Authority's Agents, in order to Officialy and Personaly Declare their relevant Will, with their ID Cards, and by Signing an Official Document "in theur Presence"...

 + In the UK, where some Exceptions existed on "Mail-in" Ballots, a Big Scandal of alleged Fraud in favor of Controversial former PM Tony Bliar's "Labour" Party, Marked the 2005 Parliamentary Elections, with several People Condemned f.ex. in Birmibngham, and CoE's Assembly making afterwards an Investigation and a Hotly Debated in Strasbourg Report, while PM. Bliar was Obliged to Resign a few years After that, (Conservatives taking over the Government Since 2010, until Now).

=> Precisely Because of various Similar and/or Other such Reports of more or less Wide-Spread Fraud and/or Gross Irregularities, Most European Countries had, indeed, to Confirm and Perpetuate, or Introduce an Electoral System withOut Any such Controversial, and Easy to Maipulate or even Buy, "Mail-in" or other "Absentee" Ballots, (which in USA's 2020 Elections' case went as Far as to Add, Also, so-called ...."Drop Box" [sic !] Ballots, even in the Streets, "Parc" Ballots, "Drive Through" Ballots, etc., Often Skip ID Photo and/or Signatures' Verification, etx), as some US Publications Warned, Already Since August 2020...

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

+ A TransAtlantic OSCE (where USA is a Full, Prominent Member) Senior Official, speaking to "Eurofora" Today, under condition of Anonymity, pointed at the work of a PanAmerican OAS' Election Observation Mission, which Monitored too these 2020 US Presidential Elections, as they did also, Recently, f.ex. for Bolivia's 2019 Presidential Elections, where, Notoriously, Morales was Ultimately Obliged to Resign and Flee to Mexico, after Criticism for Suspicions of Fraud, mainly Based on alleged "UnExplained", "Statistical" ImProbabilities and on Late Ballots Suddenly Reversing an Initial Victory of a Candidate, by an AbNormaly Big Number of Votes for that "Socialist/Liberal" Former President, who was, therefore, Discredited as illegitime, Faced Popular Demonstrations and Lack of Military Backing, (etc), before being Replaced Later-on.... Moreover, According to relevant Press Sources, a Parallel EU Foreign Policy Report on those Controversial Presidential Elections has made a Similar Criticism on 2019.

>>> By a striking Coincidence, the main Discrepancies reportedly Reproached by that OAS 2019 Report against Morales, are Astonishingly Similar to a Key part of those made Nowadays Also against Biden on 2020 in the USA : F.ex., Many "UnExplained", "Statistical" Improbabilities, Sudden Reversal of Results, (initialy Won by a Competitor), through Late and Controversial Ballots, DisPrpoportionaly Favoring him, (a Pattern, indeed, Repeated in All or Most of the Crucial 6 "Swing" States), etc. !

++ CoE's PaEuropean Ortganisation's (where USA is Not Member, But has a Special Status) Press Officer Mikaela Catalano told "Eurofora" earlier that, this time, its Parliamentary Assembly (which Usually Follows OSCE's Electoral Observation Missions)  had Not Send any Delegation to Washington DC, But, given the Big "Hot" Controversy about this US Presidential Election 2020, she did Not Excluded a priori that the Assembly Might, Eventualy, Decide, Later-on, to Draft a Report and/or Hold a Public Debate, (as CoE has Already done in the Past, on other Human Rights/Rule of Law/Democracy Issues in the USA), given the Current "Hot" Controversy and International Interest on that Topical Issue.

CoE's, as well as OSCE's, EU's, and OAS' Established Standards on Elections' Monitoring accorss the World, Notoriously include, inter alia, Particularly the overall Press coverage, (which should Not be Excessively Unilateral and Biaised, But basicaly Pluralist and Fair), Transparency, (f.ex. via Multi-Partisan and International Observers, etc), Respect for Rule of Law, proper Votes' Counting, etc.,

while that US 2020 Presidential Election is Notioriously Marked, among others, also by an Obvious, UnPrecedented Level of pro-Biden, Unilateral and often Biaised stance by almost All Establishment's Medias, (as "OSCEé"'s Prelimiary Report, Already Noted, added, Meanwhile, Even by "Turn-Coat" "Fox-News", and even "Breitbart", which Started to Censor massively its own Faithful Readers' Comments, for the 1st Time : All in the process to be, apparently, Replaced by a New Kind of "Citizens' Press", facing, however, GAFA "Big-Tech"'s Censorship in Social Media), Added to Notorious Bullying and Obstruction against Republican, pro-Trump "Observers" in Polling Stations, Violations of US Federal Constitution on "Mail-in", "Absentees", "Late", a.o. Votes or Signatures' Checks, etc., (Comp. Supra),  as well as a Big Row (with Various Gross "Errors" Already Found) on Votes' Counting, (Both in Paper Ballots, and in Controversial "Dominion" Electronic Machines)...

+++ At any case, Meanwhile, OSCE's Electoral Observation Mission Continues to Monitor Nowadays all the notable Relevant Developments in the US about that UnSettled Yet Controversy about alleged WideSpread Fraud and Gross Irregularities in the 2020 Presidential Election, and, particularly, to Watch "How are Handled possible Legal Complaints", as the Heads of that Mission had Already Warned, in a Press Conference at Washington DC, from the immediate Aftermath of the Vote, on November 4, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usasupremecourtandvotefraud.html, etc), and this was Confirmed, Today, also by the Replies of an OSCE's Senior Official to "Eurofora"s relevant Questions :

- Indeed, "We (OSCE) are Still Analysing" and "Seriously Following" relevant Developments, about the Outcome of these US Presidential Elections,  Because it Remains, Nowadays, "an ON-GOING PROCESS", he/she significantly told us, (speaking on condition of anonymity, due to the delicate character of this Issue).

=> Indeed, OSCE's crucial "Final Report" on these Controversial US 2020 Presidential Elections is "expected to be Published for about Mid-January" 2021, he/she told "Eurofora".

>>> In other words, OSCE's Final Conclusions on this Elections' Results are Expected, by a Significant Coincidence, ...Just After that Decisive US Congress' Official "Reading" about "Official" and "Alternate" slates of Electors from the "Swing" States, currently Challenging each other, (one for Biden, and one for Trump in Each of those "Battleground" States), Notoriously Scheduled for January 6, and which is, precisely, the Target of President Trump Legal Team's 1st Petition to the US Federal Supreme Court, Yesterday, (with a Demand for Urgent Action since Today and particularly Tomorrow, December 23).

+ At least anotOther 1 to 3 such Legal Complaints to the Supreme Court, should, Reportedly, soon Follow, Adding Other among those 6 "Swing" States' very Controversial cases, according to Lawyer Guliani, (while some Other People, in parallel, Dream to become "Proud" Members of an Eventual "Class Action" by "We the People", if possible, as they have Recently Informed "Eurofora"s Readers, on the Entire Range of alleged Wide-Spread Fraud/Gross Irregularities of that Controversial 2020 US Presidential Election).

Thus, it canNot be Excluded a priori that even OSCE's crucial Final Report (Comp. Supra), Might, Perhaps, be Delayed Further, in case of Relevant Unforseen Events, that Senior Official added to "Eurofora", while the usual "Inauguration" Day for whoever might become POTUS has been, Notoriously, Scheduled for January 20, (already surrounded by the "Electric Mist" of Various Other on-going Rumours/Hypothesis, more or less credible: See, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usa2020electoralfraudproofgrows.html, etc)...

    The incoming Swedish EU Presidency (July-December 2009) may still remain in favour of Turkey's controversial EU bid, despite June 2009 EU Elections' results, but it has "very strong demands on Turkey"'s obligation to respect EU Rules, said the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, to "EuroFora", reacting to critical Press reports.

    - "I know (that) the link is often made also to Sweden's position on Turkey"'s controversial EU bid. Indeed, "we (Swedish EU Presidency) are very much engaged in the future membership of Turkey, but not without fullfiling all the Criteria".

    - "It's very clear that we (Swedish EU Presidecny) have very Strong Demands on Turkey, in a sort of concept for Future membership of the Union, ...which will be a Long Process...", she stressed.

    This means, in particular, "the Copenhagen Criteria (on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law), and also the adaptation to the Acquis of the European Union".

     - "If you listen to what Mr. Bildt (the Swedish Foreign Minister) says on Turkey at different occasions, it's very clear : We want Turkey to become part of the Union, in the Future. But we want it to fullfil all the Criteria : The Acquis of the European Union. That's very clear", she concluded.

    The Senior Official of the Swedish Foreign Ministry was reacting to critical Press Reports, from Brussels' Journalists invited by EU Commission's secretariat to Stockholm, who claimed that Bildt was abusing of a ..."Whip" (sic !) against Cyprus, by "threatening" the presence of UNO's Peace-keeping force at the "Green line" which separates the island's Government-controlled areas from the territories occupied by Ankara's army, if Nicosia didn't accept any political solution, regardless of Turkey's demands, before the end of 2009.

        Governing AKEL Party's new Secretary General, Andros Kyprianou, reacted by declaring that no-one can threat the People of Cyprus : -"We shall decide for our Future, and nobody else",  he reportedly said, asking to "keep calm". "In order to find a Solution soon, certain basic Principles must be respected", he stressed, calling those who feel an urgency to use their influence on Turkey. Other Political Parties were more critical.

    This was a reference to recently reported statements by Turkish Minister Bagis, Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan and Turkey's National Security Council (a Military-Political body), accused to push towards a partitionist "2 States" solution, contrary to UNO SC Resolutions for Cyprus' reunification.

    December 2009 is a crucial moment for EU's appraisal of Turkey's controversial EU bid, because EU Council has decided to review then Ankara's compliance with the European position on the recognition of Cyprus' Government, which was clearly set out by an EU reply of 21 September 2005 to Turkish Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan's claims, refusing to recognize even the existence of EU Member Cyprus, in controversial statements he made to London (former EU chair) on July 29, 2005.

    EU Parliament's latest Resolution on Turkey, adopted on March 2009 in Strasbourg, warned Ankara that "the non-fulfillment of Turkey's commitments... by December 2009, may further seriously affect the process of Negotiations" with the EU.

    In practice, the issue boils down to Ankara's "embargo" against Ships and Airplanes using Cyprus' seaports or airports at the strategic EU island, which traditionaly hosts one of the World's biggest Shipping flags. EU has already "freezed" 6 relevant Chapters in EU - Turkey Negotiations since December 2006, after Ankara refused to fullfil a commitment it had undertaken when EU had decided to open controversial "accession" negotiations with Turkey, back on December 2005.

    - "As far as EU - Turkey relations are concerned, it's clear that Turkey needs to fullfil its obligation of full, non-discriminatory implementation of the additional Protocol (to "EC-Turkey Association Agreement"),  This is an important issue....and should be addresseed as soon as possible as it clearly affects the pace of the accession negotiations.Issues covered by the Declaration of September 2005 will continue to be followed up, and progress is urgently awaited", warned earlier in Strasbourg the out-going Czech EU Presidency (former vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra).

    But the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, dismissed "interpretations" by "some" that Foreign Minister Carl Bildt was reportedly "threatening" Cyprus with consequences on the UNFICYP, if it doesn't accept any solution until December 2009, while Turkey is reportedly delaying in an attempt to impose a partitionist "2 States" solution.

    On the contrary, Julin, stressed that "Sweden has strong demands on Turkey'"s respect of "Copenhagen Criteria and EU Acquis".

    Meanwhile, Sweden  is "concerned" about the risk of "Stalemate" in Cyprus' Talks, but is well aware that "the main responsibilities lie with the two leaders and the UNO", Europe playing only a role of "facilitator".

    After carefully verifying, the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, stressed to "EuroFora" that Bildt's reference to UNFICYP "was not linked to a Threat", and dismissed those who "interpreted" it so.

    On the contrary, the Swedish EU Presidency acknowledged the fact that Peace Talks are mainly for the UN and the leaders of the Cypriot communities, EU's role being limited into that of a "facilitator".

    As for Turkey's reported attempts to impose a "2 States' solution", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service sharply replied by stressing that Turkey must respect the "EU Acquis" rules.

    In particular :

    - "Basically he (Bildt) underlined that it's the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus and the UN that have the main responsibilities for solving the problem", started to say the Swedish Senior Official to "EuroFora", referring to the above-mentioned "briefing".

    - "But the EU had a role in sort of pointing out the benefits and facilitating a little bit the outcome for the settlement of the whole Cyprus' issue", she added.

    - "And he did state the Fact, that the rest of the World (i.e. USA, etc) will, of course, look at the differend issues which are at the table, and the future of the UN Peace keeping force is part of what is at the table", she admitted.

    - "I understand that some have interpreted that as a Threat, by the Swedish Minister" "But", in reality, "it's a statement of a Fact, that, when we'll look at the differend issues, one of the issues on which we shall have to take a stand on, is the future of the UN Peace keeping force in Cyprus".

    Indeed, one of the questions usually raised for a Solution of Cyprus' issue is what International and/or European or other Guarantees, by a Peace-keeping force, might be needed afterwards, eventually for a transitory period.

    Questioned anew by "EuroFora" whether (according to critical Press Reports) this could be taken as a veiled warning that, if Cyprus didn't accept any Turkish demand for any solution whatever, it might be left alone to face Ankara's Military Invasion/Occupation, she denied :

    - "He (Bildt) didn't say it in that way"... "It was not linked to a threat, or anything like that", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service stressed.

    On the contrary, "he (Bildt) underlined that the main responsibility lies with the parties concerned on the island". "The EU can try to facilitate and show the benefits of reaching a settlement. But also, when the EU and the rest of the World (i.e. USA) will have to look at it, they will look at all the Facts on the table, and the presence of the UN Peace-keeping force is one".

    And "he (Bildt) didn't speak about that at all", she replied to "EuroFora" question on Turkey's reported attemps to impose, in one way of another, a partitionist "2 States solution".

    Asked whether Bildt's aim was to incite both parties to move forward efficiently, she agreed :

    - In fact, "the EU is really very concerned with the Stalemate in the situation. Yes !", the Head of Sweden's Foreign Ministry's Press Service anounced. That's why Bildt "was hoping for the two parties (i.e. for Turkey's also) to engage and break, a little-bit, the present stalemate, come to a solution of the issue" of Cyprus.

    But, replying  to a "EuroFora"s question on the risk, denounced by several politicians in case of strict Time Deadlines, for Turkey to provoke a stalemate and wait for the time to come to impose a partitionist "2 States' solution", she reacted by pointing at Turkey's obligation to respect "EU Acquis" :

    - "Turkey must fullfil the EU Acquis : That's clear !", the Swedish Senior Official stressed.

    More details are expected when Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt will debate his Programme with new MEPs at EU Parliament's plenary mid-July in Strasbourg, that he has visited already in 2008.

    Foreign Minister Carl Bildt became familiar with Strasbourg's CoE last year, when Sweden chaired the PanEuropean organization of Human Rights. As EU chairman-in-office, he will also chair the 27-member States strong EU Group inside the 47-member States strong CoE.

    Minister for EU affairs, Cecilia Malmstrom is well known at EU Parliament, where she has been an active MEP of the Liberal Group for many years, following also Press Freedom issues.

    Both have already made various statements at "EuroFora", on differend topical matters.
