*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 official presentation of a "Program" respecting People's choices voted in the June 7, 2009 EU Elections, to be debated in EU Council and EU Parliament during its 1st Session on July in Strasbourg, is the No 1 Priority, according to Democratic principles, for the Franco-German axis, said the main winners at the ballot box, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel.

They stressed  that the New EU Commission's President must have a "Program" in favor of an EU which "protects" its Citizens, regulates financial markets and aims at a "Political" Europe" : a wording they have used as incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

They also declared ready for a "political" endorsment of "Mr. Barroso's candidacy" in June's EU Council, considering that an official decision would have to be made after EU Parliament's debates and votes, possibly from next month (July), with the legally necessary final acceptance shortly after Lisbon Treaty's entry into force, hoped for September or October.


- "A Program, and Mr. Barroso" : This resumes, in substance, the anouncements made by Sarkozy and Merkel, on the question of current EU Commission's President, Barroso's declared wish to succeed to himself for a second mandate, to be extended during the following 5 years.

 In their 1st meeting after EU Elections, they observed that "the Franco-German axis counted in European Elections' campaign... But, we both keep a realistic view : We saw the number of those who abstained, and we must absolutely give them an answer. We also see the disilusionment of an important number of Europeans vis a vis Europe, and we are aware of the responsibilities we have".

 - The "Duty" of the new EU Commission's President, after June 7, 2009 EU Elections' result, "is to act for a Europe which protects the Europeans, to commit himself into working for a better Regulation of Financial transactions, ... and to have a Political will for Europe", underlined Sarkozy.

Therefore, "we have asked M. Barroso... to clarify, to officialy present the intentions he has", he anounced.

- "We want to speak also about the Programme", explained Merkel.

- "It's important that for the next EU Parliament's mandate (2009-2014) we take the right Decisions for Europe.  Obviously on Persons, but mainly Decisions on Issues", she stressed.

- "It's not simply a question of a Person, it's also a question of a Programme". We are "really asking Mr. Barroso to commit himself on a Program, and on Principles, on Values", Sarkozy added.

EU President-in-office, Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer, accepted the Franco-German stance :

- "Barroso must present his Programme. The Czech Presidency agrees with that", Fischer reportedly said later, after meeting Sarkozy.

But Press reports from Brussels claimed that Barroso had preferred to be officially appointed by EU Council since June, (i.e. next week), "because this was implied by the current Treaty of Nice, according to him", and considered any delay until the possible ratification of the new, Lisbon Treaty on September/October, as "undemocratic".

- "At any case, independently of what Germany and France ask, it's also EU Parliament's wish". "We shall propose Mr Barroso's candidacy... But even in the framework of Nice Treaty, EU Parliament has to be associated in this Decision", the French President observed.

If this is correctly done, then "we support Mr. Barroso's candidature", and "if the (EU) Parliament agrees, we might ratify this decision since July", (i.e. next month), they both said.

- "France and Germany support Baroso's candidacy, But we want to speak also on the Program. We believe that this Program should be established in close cooperation with EU Parliament, and that's why we have followed an appropriate way", said Merkel.  - If EU Parliament wants, this election can take place on July,  but this must be done in full agreement.

- "We shall support Mr. Barroso's candidacy, without doubt", said Sarkozy. "But we have asked from Mr. Barroso, as I told him yesterday, to put into detail.. his intentions, at the eve of his 2nd mandate, if the situation avails itself.


    France and Germany "don't want to take an Official Legal Decision by writting" during "the next (EU) Council" (on June 18-19), declared Sarkozy.  Because they prefer, at this stage, only "a Political decision" on June, "so that we (EU Council) can work together with EU Parliament", which starts to meet only Next Month, since July in Srasbourg, "leaving a Legal decision by writting for later".

    - "If the Conditions are fuillfiled in EU Parliament, we (EU Council) are ready to give the agreement and make it offficial", said Merkel

    - "But, now we are working in the base of Nice Treaty. If tommorow we want to work in the spirit of Lisbon Treaty, we have to find a proper way", she added.

    - "Of course it's Legally complicated, because we are going to make a Political proposal to the forthcoming Council, for an EU Commission's President, on the basis of Nice Treaty : So, we (EU Council) will not appoint the Commissioners. Only the President.  If EU Parliament agrees, it could endorse this position on July", explained Sarkozy.

    But, on Autumn, "if Ireland ratifies Lisbon Treaty, there will be, at any case, a 2nd Decision, to appoint the Commission's President, this time on the basis of Lisbon treaty, and then, we, the EU Member States, would have to appoint (also) the EU Commissioners", he added.

    As for the precise Timing :  - "Everything is suspended until the Irish vote... Now, we must all make everything possible to help Ireland to say "Yes"" to Lisbon Treaty... The Irish Referendum, ..will take place either on September or on October. It's a Question which depends on the Irish. And,  then, we shall have the Choice of the Candidates for the permanent Institutions of Europe".

    However, "if Ireland says No, we, French and Germans, have to assume our responsibilities, and we'll do so", he concluded.

    But British and Swedish governments were reportedly eager to have a final EU Council decision on Barroso since this month, on June's European Council. While the other EU Member Countries are divided, several of them preferring to wait until EU Parliament pronounces itself, on July, and/or until Lisbon Treaty might be ratified by Ireland at the beginning of the Autumn. Barroso's current mandate ends on November.

    There are also various, contradictory and/or unpredictable reactions inside EU Parliament vis a vis Barroso's wish to continue a 2nd mandate, because many MEPs are openly or secretly opposed, reluctant, or hesitating.

    In the biggest EU Countries, as France and Germany, EU Citizens voted on June 2009 EU Elections for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe which cares for its Citizens, with an Identity, Values and Borders, declared incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid, by mainstream, pro-European Governing Parties. Similar choices were also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries.

    On the contrary, whenever, in other Countries, Governing and other mainstream Parties didn't make these choices or eluded them, EU Citizens massively voted for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to to promise anti-bureacratic change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU, (f.ex. in the UK, Netherlands, etc).

    It's seems to be an Open Question whether Sarkozy and Merkel's conditions will be really accepted by Barroso, who was appointed on 2004 in a different political context, (with Socialist Prime Ministers in Germany, France, etc), had rejected in the Past the idea of EU becoming "equal to the USA" as "ridiculous", and pushed for Turkey's contoversial EU bid, trying to "soften" or contain the changes desired by the People who voted for Merkel and Sarkozy with another policy vis a vis Turkey on 2005 in Germany and on 2007 in France, as they did all over Europe on 2009.

    In addition to many EPP Governments, it's 3 remaining Socialist Prime Ministers : Gordon Brown in the UK, Zapatero in Spain, and Socrates in Prortugal, who support Barroso, as well as Liberal Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt. But their Parties lost the June 2009 EU Elections.

    Questioned whether there was still "Time" for "other" possible "Candidates", Sarkozy and Merkel did not deny, nor made any comment on that, but simply said that "it's not for us to make publicity for any candidates. We anounced our choice ("A Program, and Mr. Barroso"). But we respect any other candidate".

    Among various other names cited are former Belgian Prime Minister Verhofstadt, former UNO's Human Rights Commissioner Mary Robinson of Ireland, Italian former EU Commission's vice-President Monti, etc. Meanwhile, Luxembourg's PM Juncker, (who had been unanimously accepted by EU Council for EU Commission's Presidency on 2004, but refused), announced his intention to resign from "EuroGroup"'s Chair. Thus, he might be available for another Top EU job.

    As "EuroFora"'s "opinion" said (See publication dated 9/6/09) : - "If the current candidates (i.e. Barroso, etc) to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, then, it's OK".

"Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People."

    Because, "in Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs,...should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies".
