*Brussels/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- In Exclusive Statemens to "Eurofora" on the sidelines of his Press Conference at EU Heads of State/Governments' Summit in Brussels, New EU Parliament's President David Sassoli from Italy, Urged for "Strong (EU) Citizens' Voices" !

He had just presented to -and Discussed with-  the Summit the Outcome of EU Parliament's Constitutional Committee's Votes on MEPs' Amendments, Earlier this Week in Brussels, to a Draft Resolution on how to Shape concretely the forthcoming Conference for Europe's Future.

- But "Eurofora" had noticed that the Initial Landmark References to EU Citizens' input had, apparently, paled away, almost vanished, or were, comparatively, marginalized in the Latest relevant Official Documents...

 

+Therefore, we also asked French President Emmauel Macron's Counselor on European affairs, Clement Beaune, whether Macron really persisted in his Original Ambitious Vision, (Highlighted initialy at his landmark Speech at Acropolis' Historic Pnyx Rock, back on September 2017), or had, eventually, marked any relevant Last-Minute Change, perhaps towards relativizing it, in one way or another.

 

Beaune's immediate reaction to "Eurofora"s query was to Stress that Macron maintained his Original Vision and proposals, without any doubt.

 

=> Therefore, President Sassoli's Reply to our above-mentioned Question, by ricochet, gets another, even more Topical Meaning :

- "We (EU) Need Strong Citizens' Voices, in order to Hear what they have to Say !", told "Eurofora" the President of EU Parliament, (who has worked also as a Journalist himself, for a Long Time), Smiling...

>>> In other words, it's up to EU Citizens to Strive to really Earn and deserve their place inside the EU Decision-Making process for the foreseable Future !...:

 In EU Summit's Conclusions, published later today, EU Heads of States/Governments, after having discussed this issue with EU Parliament's President Sassoli from the Beginning of their Brussels' meeting of this December 2019, decided to "Define a Council Position", not only "on the Content" and "Scope", but also on the "Composition and Functioning" of "a Conference on the Future of Europe", which "should contribute to the Development of our (EU) Policies in the Medium and Long Term, so that we can Better Tackle current and future Challenges".

- It  "should Build on the succesful holding on Citizens' Dialogue, over the Past 2 Years (2018+  See, f.ex., inter alia, also "Eurofora"s NewsReports from the Inauguration of EU Citizens' Consultations by Frech President Macron at nearby Vosges Mountains, etc., at : ..., ..., etc), "and Foresee Broad Consultation of Citizens, in the course of the Process", for which there is a wider "Need to be Inclusive", this Brussels' EU Summit officially "underlined" further on.

(Opinion).

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

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

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.
