*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- An "EXCLUSIVE" and Original Press Reportage by "Eurofora" reveals the Fact that the Italian Center-Right had already Accepted to Give, Once, its Turn for the Top Job of EU Parliament's President to Socialist German MEP Martin Schulz, as early as since 2012.


=> So that, Nowadays, in the Crucial Forthcoming Election of a New EU Parliament's President, later this Month, on January 2017 in Strasbourg, where Socialists and ChristianDemocrats/EPP appear anew Divided, as Before 2012, after Schulz's departure, supporting EachOther a Different Candidate, should, normally, be Returned Back to the Italian Center-Right political forces, at least as far as Justice, Democratic Balance, Honesty and Fair Political Deals, with TrustWorthiness are concerned.


Today, the 2 Biggest Contenders, among the candidates, are Antonio Tajani, from the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group (Center-Right), and Giani Pitella from the Socialist Group (Center-Left).


Tajani is now EU Parliament's 1st vice-President, and former EU Commission's vice-President, in charge of Industry and Businesses, including Space. Pitella is the current President of the Socialist Group of MEPs.


>>> The Point is that, when an overall Political Deal was brokered, between the 2 Biggest Political Parties in the EU : The ChristianDemocrats/EPP and the Socialists, about the Sharing of EU's Top Jobs, including mainly those of EU Commission's and EU Parliament's Presidents, the Right side Accepted to give its Turn in the Parliament's Top Job, in exchange for the Left's support for a Center-Right Politician at the Commission's Top Job.


This practicaly meant, in fact, that Schulz (who was, then, President of the Socialist Group), would "OK" Barroso for another term as EU Commission's President, so that, himself (Schulz), would get EU Parliament's Presidency, supported also by the ChristianDemocrats/EPP.


=> The Interesting thing, Compared to Nowadays, is that, such a Deal implied, inevitably, that the ChristianDemocrats/EPP would Accept to withhold their Scheduled Candidate for Next EU Parliament's President, probably for another opportunity, much Later-on. And, "Eurofora" is well placed to Know that, this Initial Center-Right Candidate, was ...a mainstream Italian Center-Right MEP, (then : Mario Mauro)

It results from Exclusive Statements to "Eurofora", made by a Key Top EU Political Personality : the Experienced former Chairman of EU Parliament's ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, and Nowadays powerful President of all the ChristianDemocrat/EPP National Parties, United all together under the umbrela of the homonymus European Party, headquartered in Brussels, French Center-Right, former Long-time MEP of Strasbourg, Joseph Daul :

(Daul nowadays, when he was Awarded a Prize by French former JHA Minister Cazeneuve, now New Prime Minister, on November 2016 in EU Parliament in Strasbourg - Photo by "Eurofora"). 

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


- Indeed, shortly Before Crucial Decisions and Votes would Start, Daul was Visiting a Local/Regional Meeting, near Strasbourg, organized by the Mainstream French Center-Right Party "UMP", at Shuffelweyersheim, via the Mayor of that adjacent Village, (who served then, also as Regional Chief for UMP), Senator Andre Reichert.


"Eurofora", who was also Invited to that Political Meeting, just Before Entering the Main Room, suddenly Saw President Daul, as always running around in an Hyper-Active way, holding his Mobile Phone, and Searching a Quiet place, f.ex. Outside, Facing a lot of Beautiful Natural Fields, (by a Surprizing Coincidence, as also we had thought to use ourselves in order to make, precisely, another Phone Call, elsewhere)...


 - Immediately, after Saluting eachother, President Daul, quite enthousiast, (but also, it seems, Eager to start "Testing" various concerned People's reactions), Announced that - "I have just Spoken with Schulz, and it's OK !".


I.e., as noted supra, Schulz (as President of the Socialist MEPs then) would accept Barrozo as EU Commission's Head, for anOther Term, while the ChristianDemocrats MEPs would accept, Afterwards, Schulz, as EU Parliament's Head, (Comp. Supra).


=>  - So, "Now, I have to Phone to Berlusconi (then Italian Prime Minister), in order to Convince him to Withdraw Mauro", practicaly had Added, then, Joseph Daul, speaking to "Eurofora".

 

"Eurofora" immediately Verified, (then, even vis avis the Socialis and ChristianDemocrat Groups' Spokesmen, at that time, by Phone), and Confirmed that such a Political Deal was, indeed, real and Original "News", since Nobody else (except from Daul, Shulz, and perhaps 2 or 3 Heads of State/Government) haven't yet been informed about it. 


And, subsequently, this was, indeed, done, as agreed.


>>> In other words, to over-Simpligy things, the Socialists, somehow, "Owe", now, (on 2017), to the Italian Center-Right Politicians, to Give them Back, their Original Turn for EU Parliament's Presidency, that the latter Had Accepted to Sacrifice in the Past, in favor of Schulz, (Comp. Supra).


+ In the Meantime, the Fact that, since 2014, it's Now also another ChristianDemocrat who Chairs the EU Commission : Jean-Claude Juncker, (former Long-Time Prime Minister of Luxembourg and €uroGroup's President), would Not really Change things : Simply Because, from 2014 and on, All EU Political Forces have notoriously Agreed that it Should Always be the Winner of the latest EU Parliament's Elections who would take on the Top Job as EU Commission's President, from now on, as a matter of General Principle.


So that Juncker, obviously, does Not Owe, Today, to Anyone Else his Top Job as EU Commission's President, since 2014, than, mainly, to the European Citizens.


Therefore, Socialist MEPs should Not revendicate, also Today, the Top Job at EU Parliament's Presidency again, as they do until now, erroneously Claiming that this would be Necessarily Implied by Juncker's EU Commission Presidency...


On the Contrary, if they are to be Fair, they should Acknowledge the Fact, that they "Owe" EU Parliament's President to someone from the Italian Center-Right, (Comp. Supra), as, Today, Antonio Tajani.


Tajani was Previously Elected as 1st EU Parliament's vice-President with 450 Votes.

(Comp. for various Topical Tajani's statements to "Eurofora" a.o., among many others, f.ex., also : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/tajanirecentviolencepushesjewsexodustoisrael.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentvpresidenttajanionreligionsversusterror.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentonspace.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/financialperspectivesandeufuture.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/barnierfortransparentbusiness.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/weathersciencerussianheatwavemassue.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/isusymosiumandobamanasabudget.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/tajaniindustrygalileo.html  , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/tajanigalileo2018.html , http://www.eurofora.net/brief/brief/tajaniairlines.html , etc).


He has also, Recently, Won a Hard Competition inside EU Parliament's ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, where he had Faced another 3 potential Candidates for the Top Job of EU Parliament's Presidency, such as a former Prime Minister of Slovenia, a popular Irish Woman MEP, and an Experienced, mainstream French former Minister of EU Affairs.


Last, but not least, in his Concluding Statements, during a Public Debate among all the 7 current Candidates, from Various Political Groups, for the Top Job of EU Parliament's President, Tajani had a quite Well-Crafted Idea to Promisse to Support All Political Groups and MEPs' Rights, including even among the Smallest or Marginal Groups, as a matter of General Democratic Principle, as well as that Europe is, in Fact, a much Wider and Loger Reality than EU itself, which has its own, original "Historic Identity", that all European People feel Important, (as, also, their National identities, in parallel), as he observed in fine.


The Decisive, forthcoming MEPs' Votes for the Choice of their New President, at EU Parliament, Later this Month in Strasbourg, are casted in Secret Ballot.

---

From the point of view of EU Citizens' votes, things seem Crystal-Clear, already, even according to the Latest, 2014 EU Parliament's Elections, (=> "a  fortiori" on 2017, given the well known general political developments, recently) :


- European People gave, then, 217 MEPs for the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, (the Biggest EU Parliament's Group), included in a Total of about 314 MEPs, Maximum, to all the Right.


- Socialists have got, since then, 189 MEPs, included in a Total of around 295 MEPs, Maximum, to all the Left.


- Liberals ("Centrists") got 68 MEPs.


>>> Out of the 751 MEPs of EU Parliament, the Absolute Majority is 376 MEPs.


But, after the 3rd Round of Votes, among the Two Frontrunners, the Winner needs just a Simple Majority of MEPs' Votes, in an eventual 4rth Round.

* EuroCorps, EU defence's etat major, which has just celebrated 15 years of age (1993 - 2008), is young enough to feel enthousiasm for missions to guarantee Human Rights, Peace and reconcilation : Strasbourg's Historic Symbols, but also maturing fast, (particularly under the current French EU Presidency), in order to prepare potentialy important developments in 2009 :

- "EUROCORPS" is a "unique tool" for "a Modern Europe", jointly managed by participating Nations without anyone deciding for others", to "support their efforts to promote Reconciliation, Peace and Human Rights' Values, which identify today's European ideal, with its Symbol-City : Strasbourg", stressed its Chief, Spanish General Pedro PITARCH, in a popular ceremony for the 15th Anniversary of the European Army Corps, at its Headquarters.

- "Today, we are ready and able to fullfil any Peace-keeping Mission may be decided by the Political leadership, since we can deploy up to 60.000 soldiers and/or other agents, mainly in land, but in coordination with Sea and Air operarions", (even to build vital Infrastructures, demining, keep public order, facilitate Elections, etc), said to EuroFora EUROCORPS' Spokesman and Press Director, Colonel Raul SUEVOS.

- "If there is an Agreement with the framework Nations, EUROCORPS could certainly contribute to guarantee manifold aspects of Peace setllements", told us recently General PITARCH.

EU Parliament asked, Summer 2008 in Strasbourg, " to place Eurocorps as a standing force under EU command", and "invited all (EU) Member States to contribute to it".

France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Luxembourg (participating with Funds, Telecoms and Officers), are EUROCORPS"' main "Framework Nations", due to be joined by Italy in 2009. Greece and Austria participate as "Contributing Nations", while Poland decided to upgrade its role. Turkey has liaison Officers for NATO relations, and even USA decided to send Officers to Strasbourg on 2009.

Observers await with impatience also the outcome of NATO's April 2009 Summit in Strasbourg in order to have a better view of EuroCorps' future.
