*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- An apparently UnPrecedented Super-Majority (or, rather, Quasi-Unanimity) of MEPs Voted Today, in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, a Resolution in order to express "Deep Concern" for the Long and Bumpy "Investigations" in the Brutal Murder of Critical and Independent Web-Journalist Daphne Caruana-Galizia in Malta, while Also "Stressing" that a "Risk of Compromizing the Investigations ...persists as long as the Prime Minister remains in Office", speaking of the controversial Socialist Joseph Muscat, who Notoriously Refuses to Resign Before the Mid-January 2020, and keeps a lot of his Cronies appointed at Key Jobs around that Enquiry, even after several among his entourage were found more or less compromised, (See, f.ex., Facts cited at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/daphnemurderenquirydeviationrisk.html, etc).

This Resolution succeeded to get 581 MEPs' Votes in Favour, with Only 26 Against, and 83 Abstentions, i.e. an Historic Record-High.

But, in Fact, its above-mentioned Substance attracted Even More Wide Support, since the Reason for which Some Rightist MEPs Voted Against (mainly of the "ID" Group or "BREXIT"), or Abstained, (mainly among the "Conservatives", is Not because they would be Opposed to the Above-mentioned Key Remarks (Comp. Supra), But, on the Contrary, Because they Found them ...Insufficient, (i.e., Preferring, f.ex., a Clear and Straight Call for that Maltese Prime Minister to Resign Immediately : as, f.ex., the Head of French mainstream Center-Right "Republican" MEPs, Philosopher Francois-Xavier Bellamy = EPP, etc), and/or rather for a Different Reason : Because, as a matter of General Principle, they were Not Favorable in giving to the EU a Power to Intervene Strongly inside its Member States, particularly Fearing that it might, eventually, be Exploited, by some, as a kind of "Precedent" in order to Exert, Afterwards, even More Pressure Against "Dissident" Countries, for Various Other real Reasons, such as Hungary and/or Poland, etc., (f.ex. via the TEU Article 7 current Procedure, and/or anOther, New such Procedure, even Stronger)...

At the Same Time, it's also True that in Vain would anyone search to find, perhaps, some Socialist MEPs who could have Voted Against that Resolution : Only 3 (mostly Maltese), added to Only 1 who Abstained... So that, inter alia, f.ex., Italian Rightist MEP Marco Deostro, speaking on behalf of the "ID" Group, found ..."Molta Ipocrisia" ("A Lot of Hypocrisy"), at least in some Voters, as he Claimed.

Is it, perhaps, Because most Socialist MEPs (who were Alone Not to Mention even the Daphne Murder Affair at the 1st Page of their Press Agenda for this Plenary Session, Contrary to the EPP Center-Right, who had placed it at the 2nd Rank of its First Page List, and even the "Left", who had placed it 3rd, at First Page), might, eventually, feel Happy for practically leaving Socialist Prime Minister Muscat a slight Chance to still Remain in Office until Mid-January 2020, as he Wished, or almost ? Indeed, as French Center-Right mainstream MEP Bellamy (Comp. Supra) Warned, "During this Laps of Time, he (PM. Muscat) Might Destroy Evidence", or "Block an Equiry" (etc) - May be he would Better Worry about : - "Deviating an Enquiry Away from the Right Direction", as, at least, some Latest Developments in Malta indicate, (See relevant Facts at: ..., etc).

=> So that, in Fact, as the well known, Classic Motos say : ..."The Proof of the Pudding is in the Eating", or, Otherwise, "Hic Rodus, hic Saltus !" It's Not absolutely Necessary to Read, at First, All the ... Fourty Two (42 !) Recitals (Considerants), Wide-Spread throughout Many Long Alineas, from "A" to "AO", added to the 16 Articles of that Resolution, (even if they might be All Interesting), in order to Conclude on the Essentials :

>>> Obviously, the Best (and probably Only) Way to Judge, is to Practicaly Help the Investigation of Daphne's Murder fully Advance to the Right Direction asap., in order to Find and Punish All those Really Responsible for that Bloody Crime, Naturally Included all the Real Instigators, and Not Only a few Apolitical Middlemen, (Comp. f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/daphnemurderenquirydeviationrisk.html, etc) : Timely Results speak by themselves !

Meanwhile, as the Adopted EU Parliament's Resolution urges, at its Article Number 2 : - "Any Risk of Compromising the Investigations, .... Must be Excluded, by All Means", and, Since MEPs also "Stress that this Risk Persists for as long as the (controversial Maltese) Prime Minister remains In Office", then....

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

+ Meanwhile, in an Amendment voted Today, MEPs also Welcomed EU Parliament Bureau's Decision to create an Annual European Prize for Investigative Journalism, due to be awarded in the Name of brutaly Murdered Web-journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, (after whom is also named the Press Conference-Room here).

    - "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 ?
