*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- EU Parliament's 2019 Resolution on Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid, which asks to Suspend EU Accession Negotiations, Freeze EU Funds to the Turkish State, use Independent International Monitoring on serious Human Rights' Abuses, Halt plans for a Nuclear plant near Cyprus, Start Withdrawing Occupation Troops from the Island, Stop Altering its Population's Demography, and Respect EU Member Cyprus' Sovereign Right to search and exploit its Energy Resources, (etc), even if it was adopted by 370 Votes against 109, shortly before the May 2019 EU Elections, in fact, Hides an incoming, much Stronger Reaction by Wider Political Forces due to Surf at the Top of a New Majority of MEPs during the forthcoming period of 2019-2024.

It's already an UnPrecedended Fact for EU Parliament to ask, particularly, to "Suspend .. Accession Negotiations with Turkey", and ReOrientate "the Funds currently allocated ... for Pre-Accession Assistance", instead, "to support ...Civil Society, human rights Defenders and Journalists" of the Country, in a way "directly Managed by the EU", (Not the Turkish State), "with the Objective of protecting and promoting Democratic values and principles, Human rights, and the rule of Law", for a Future "Partnership" "between Turkey ad the EU", "built on Conditionality" based on such Principles, (etc).

But it's also a Fact that an exceptionaly Big Number of important MEPs Voted, instead, to ..."TERMINATE" Turkey's "Accession Negotiations" for ever, (207 Votes), or Abstained (67 Votes), Instead of Limiting today's Sanction Only to a Mere, Precarious "Suspension", (which was supported Only by a ...Minority of MEPs : 342 out of a Total of 751, since Many More prefered to simply Walk Away) !

    The Most Important Fact is that, Already, among those, More Critical MEPs (apparently around 300), are Included a lot of Very Important European Personalities and Big Countries, surprisingly Spreading along almost All the Political Spectrum, from Right to the Left, as well as, particularly, those Political Forces which (according to most current Polls) are Expected to Grow and probably Win a PreDominant Role in the New EU Parliament of 2019-2024 just after the European Elections of May...

Indeed, f.ex., it's mainly the Biggest Group of MEPs, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, followed by Rightists, several Centrists/Liberals, and even some of the Left, who Voted to put, at last, a full and definite END to Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid.  

Among those, More Critical MEPs, are Included almost All French MEPs of the Mainstream Center-Right, (f.ex. former Ministers Alliot-Marie, Hortefeux, Lamassoure, Morano, etc, Experienced MEPs Francoise Grossetete, EPP vice-President, and Morin-Chartier, the Gaullist Cadec, Strasbourg's Sander, etc).

    Most Important : EPP's "Spitzen Candidate" to the 2019 Elections, currently Leading for the post of New EU Commission's President : Manfred Weber from Germany, as well as many other Top German MEPs, as, f.ex., the President of EU Parliament's Foreign Affaits Committee, McAlistair, Angelica Niebler from Bavaria, Renate Sommer, Marcus Feber, vice-President of Budget's Committee Monika Hohlmeier, President of EU Delegation to the pan-African Parliament Michael Gahler, Werner Langen, Andreas Schwab, BioEthical Expert Dr. Peter Liese, etc.Together with Experienced Austrian "Heavy-weight" Paul Rübig, and the Young New President of "PanEuropa" Working Group Lukas Mandl, Long-term MEP Caras, (etc).

Followed also by Italian mainstream Experienced MEP Giovani La Via, as well as EU Parliament's new Rapporteur on Space policy Massimiliano Salini (etc), from former Prime Minister Berlusconi's "Forza Italia", (who has Recently fully returned Back to Political Business, and may be even in EU Parliament).

Added to Polish EPP MEP Jaroslaw WALESA, son of Historic former President Lech Walesa, and Jaroslaw Kalinowski, etc., (close to EU Council's President Donald Tusk). Followed by former vice-President of the Governing "Law and Order" Polish Party, and former Minister of Culture, Kazimierz Ujazdovski, currently Non-Aligned (NI).

+ Also "Liberal" German MEPs, such as Wolf Klinz, Gesine Meissner, etc, as well as many French Liberals as the President of EU Parliament's Budgets' Committee Arthuis, the Famous former Journalist Jean-Marie Cavada, the President of Anti-Terrorism Committee Mrs Griesbeck from nearby Lorraine, former Foreign Minister of Estonia Urmas Paet, the President of the Conference of Committees' Chairmen, Swedish Liberal MEP Cecilia Wikstrom, etc,   (concerning a Political Group that New French President Emmanuel Macron's future MEPs are probably expected to join).

+ About 30 MEPs from the EFDD Group were added, including EU Parliament's vice-President Castaldo from the Governing in Italy "5 Stars" Movement, as well as several EFDD's Brittish Leader Nigel Farage's (New Head of "BREXIT Party) faithful as UK's Jonathan Bullock, Bill Etheridge, David Coburn, etc., (who might Stay MEPs even Longer, if the BREXIT is Postponed or droped).

++ Also 17 MEPs from the Conservatives/Reformists' Group ECR, including its vice-President Helga Stevens from Belgium, Experienced vice-President of EU - Israel Delegation Bas Belder from the Netherlands, Cyprus' Governing Coalition MEP and Head of "Solidarity" new Party Helen Theocharous, Greece's Marias, Germany's Lucke (former Founder of AfD), Kristina Winberg from the Recently Growing Party of "Swedish Democrats" (New Rightists), etc. +Moreover, Most Brittish Conservative MEPs (as, f.ex.,, vice-President Syed Kamal, Ashley Fox, Experienced Tannock, etc) preferred to Vote "Abstention", Refusing a mere Suspension of Turkey's unpopular EU bid.

+++ Followed another 28 MEPs from the Rightist Group "ENF" founded by Marine le Pen, and led by its President Nicolas Bay from France, but including also Mihal Marusik from Poland, Pretzel from Germany, Obermayr and others from the co-Governing Austrian "Freedom" Party, as well as Borghezio, Marco Zanni, Oscar Lancini etc., from the co-Governing Italian "Lega" party, etc.

    Added to "Independent" MEPs from the 3rd Party of Greece : that of "Golden Dawn"s controversial Rightists, as Army General Epitideios, former NATO Senior Official in Brussels, and MEP Fountoulis, (Father of a Murdered Son, notoriously shot Dead by a Gunman who Killed also anOther Victim and seriously Wounded a third one, simple Guardians of the same Party, in a scandalously UnPunished yet Crime committed Back on 2013, i.e. nearly 6 Years now).

++++ But, there are also some "Socialist" MEPs, such as the vice-President of the SocialDemocrat Group Jeppe Kofod, from Denmark, followed by Christel Schaldemose and Ole Christensen (also Danish), as well as Cyprus' MEP Mavrides, etc.

    +++++ Even "Green" MEPs, including the vice-President of EU Parliament's Culture and Education Committee Helga Trupel from Germany, Andras Tarand from Estponia, etc., (while the vice-President of EU's Delegation to Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo, Austrian MEP Thomas Waitz, prefered to "Abstain", Refusing to vote a mere "Suspension" of Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid).

++++++ Surprisingly, it's even  ..."LEFT"'s MEPs, as the vice-President of the Group, Denis de Jong, Dutch MEPs Anja Hazecamp and Anne-Marie Mineur, Bureau Member Nicos Chountis from Greece (formerly Member of Prime Minister Tsipras' Governing Party), Luke Flanagan from Ireland, Javier Couso Permuy from Spain, (etc). To whom were Added even Communist Greek MEPs Zarianopoulos and Papadakis, etc.

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

    + In Addition, perhaps the Most Important Fact is also a New Political Dynamic, related to the forthcoming 2019 EU Elections, which appears in Today's Votes :

- Indeed, the "Socialist" Group, which supported, More than any others, the controversial Limitation of EU's Sanctions to Turkey Only in a mere Precaious "Suspension" of its "Accession" Talks (Comp. Supra), is notoriously Expected to suffer the ...Worst Loses of its former MEPs, according to most Polls, which Warn for a Heavy Reduction of the Number of "Socialist" MEPs, Falling quite Low in the New EU Parliament due to result from the May 2019 Elections.

- On the Contrary, the Christianemocrats/EPP Group, which officially Asked to put an "End" to Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid, even if it might be slightly reduced too, on the Contrary, is Expected to Remain the Biggest in EU Parliament.

- Meanwhile, if the Brittish MEPs Remain in EU Parliament, in case of a Long Postponement or Abandon of the "BREXIT", given the Fact that Most of Farage's followers at the EFDD Group voted for the Heaviest Sanction of "Terminating" Turkey's unpopular EU bid, while Many "Conservatives" prefered to "Abstain", Refusing to endorse a Too "Soft" Sanction of a mere, precarious "Suspension", (Comp. Supra), it's obvious that Turkey wouldn't have Nothing to Expect from them, no more, in this matter. Former Conservative UK Prime Minister David Cameron's notorious remark, during the "BREXIT" Referendum Campain, that Turkey would Not Enter in the EU, Not even on 2033 (sic !), obviously Left unforgetable Marks...

    >>> More Important : German "Spitzen Kandidat" of ChristianbDemocrat/EPP Group, Manfred Weber, looks firmly Anchored, now, in favor of putting an "END" to Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid, and this seems to be Also the case for German "Liberal" MEPs, (Comp. Supra), as well as, naturally, for the Fast-Growing recently "AfD" Party of the Rightists, (and even from some German "Greens" : Comp. Supra).

++ At the same time, Today's Vote Revealed an unexpected ..."Unity" of France's Centrist, mainstream Right, and Rightist MEPs, (together with the "Absention" of some important French Leftists, as Miss Vergiat, etc), as far as it concerns the "Termination" of Turkey's EU bid, as the Votes of most "Liberals", "Republicans", and "Nationalist" French MEPs clearly showed, (Comp. Supra).

+++ Moreover, the Recent Electoral Victory of the "Swedish Democrats"' Rightist Party, as well as the Fact that also Mainstream "Conservatives" in Belgium, and Even ..."Socialists" in Denmark, added even to ..."Leftists" in the Netherlands, and "Greens" in Austria (where the Governing Coalition of EPP and "Freedom" Party's Rightists does not leave any Illusion to Ankara) Voted to "End" Turkey's unpopular EU bid, obviously Augment a current Trend Against Laxism in EU Enlargement policy.

    ++++ Even More Important, probably Decisive : In Italy, both the New Governing Majority Coalition of "5 STARS"' Movement, and "LEGA" Party, (which currently ..."Explodes" in Recent Polls, pointing Upwards to the 1st Rank), as well as Berlusconi's Mainstream Center-Right, inside EU Parliament's Political Groups of "EFDD", "ENF", and "EPP", respectively, clearly Proved another New Joint Trend towards "Terminating" Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid, (Perceptible also among Most Polish MEPs of the Center-Right), (Comp. Supra).

=> Consequence : Taken All Together, those Various but Spectacularly Converging Recent Facts, obviously Reveal a New Trend, in a Growing Majority of EU's People, towards, at last, Definitively Saving Europe from that UnDemocratic and Heavy Burden, that an Error committed on 1999-2000 had thrown over their Lives, Society and Future, notoriously Damaging any "European Dream" until now.

 The forthcoming, May 2019 EU Elections, are obviously a crucial Chance for European People to Transform this Growing New Trend into a tangible and Stable New Reality from 2019-2024, opening a Positive Horizon.

 sarko_merkel_press_400

    Before the end of 2009, France and Germany will take strong initiatives to open "new Horizons" needed by Europe and the World, going well beyond the current Crisis' management, anounced French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel, reassuring that both a judgement on Lisbon Treaty by nearby Karlsruhe German Federal Court, and the forthcoming National Elections in Germany would confirm their capacity to act.    

They were replying to Press questions in Berlin, after key-regional elections on Sunday, where Merkel's ChristianDemocratic party kept everywhere a strong 1st and won the possibility to forge a New Majority with Liberals at the largest of 3 Landers : Saxony (4 millions inhabitants), while its main competitor, the Socialdemocrat party fell to unprecedented lows : Tackled by the small "Linke" (left) party in Saarland (1 million inhabitants), it became even smaller than it in Saxony and Thuringen (3 million inhabitants), where SPD arrived only third. While its usual partners, the "Greens" also fell down, contrary to CDU's new partners, the FDP Liberals, who go up.

    - "At any case, at the end of the year (2009), if things go as scheduled, we shall take strong initiatives, showing that Europe needs a Franco-German axis, as well as the World, even if it never excludes other" countries to join, replied Sarkozy to a question if France and Germany will revive the "European dream", by "relauncing the EU motor" for the Future, with actions going further than the mere management of the global crisis, (as it was done fex. in the Past with the creation of the "Euro" Monetary zone, etc).

    - "I am convinced that the Franco-German friendship must be constantly nourished by New Projects", he added."There are many areas of cooperation where we intend to take, very soon, some Franco-German initiatives, which will allow to open more Horizons" to the EU, Sarkozy stressed.

    But if "we don't speak about that now, it's only in order to avoid interfering in important elections coming in Germany", he observed. However, "we have already started to consider the Future with the (German) Chancellor, and what we can do in order to honour our predecessors". "We are already speaking about that, and we are preparing things". "I am working very well together with Mrs Merkel, and I wish that it goes on", Sarkozy concluded.

    - "It's important for EU's credibility that France and Germany advance forward together", stressed Merkel from the outset. "Don't worry about Germany's capacity to undertake initiatives" with France, she added. "France and Germany will be perfectly able to make proposals" for the EU.

    -  "After-crisis" plans must be prepared, meanwhile, with measures "advancing progressively", Merkel anounced. And, for the short term, we must deal also with EU Citizens' dismay since they feel that it's a Scandal for some in the Financial Markets to be paid with excessive "Bonuses", etc, she agreed with Sarkozy.

    - "Abuses in financial markets must stop", stressed also Sarkozy. Backing Merkel's announcement that France and Germany call for an EU meeting to forge "a crystal-clear European position" in view of the G-14 Summit at Pittsburg, he warned that "everyone will have to undertake his responsibilities, in front of World's Public Opinion. particularly those who don't want to make the same effort of regulation as France and Germany".

    Moreover, "Global Trade cannot be correctly dealt, without taking into account also Environmental and Social rules", Sarkozy added, referring to recently expressed positions against Unfair Competition via Environmental and/or Social Dumping, (See earlier "EuroFora"'s publications).

    Such moves are obviously linked to the need to ensure at least an elementary respect for Human Rights by Third Countries, (f.ex. exploitation of Children's work, etc) in order to avoid, precisely, any such Social Dumping.

    - "EU has Values, protecting Human Rights and Human Dignity", and "it cannot close its eyes" in front of grave violations, particularly "Torture and/or killings", added, indeed, Sarkozy.

    Thus, "the time comes, where decisions must be taken". But, in case of "Sanctions", "all International opinion should be convinced of the need to take action", he observed.

    Expressed on the occasion of recent developments in Iran, the same principles should logically apply also to other similar cases, including fex. that of Hundreds of ECHR judgements' condemning f;ex. Turkey for grave crimes, (as Torture, brutal Killings, Enforced "Disappearances", Destruction of Family Homes, harassments and oppressive violations of Freedom of Speech, etc).

    Meanwhile, questioned on (EU Commission's chair)  Barroso's bid to succeed himself for a second mandate, they both expressed a "wish" or a "feeling" that "EU Parliament"'s various political Groups might fix a date for decisions "during September". However, is he is endorsed before the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, it will be legally necessary to re-vote anew for a full term of office afterwards, according to EU Legal Experts, revealed recently in Strasbourg the experienced former President of EU Parliament's Constitutional Committee, German Socialist MEP Jo Leinen. And Germany will not vote for Lisbon Treaty's ratification but only "on September 8 and 18", revealed Merkel, ( i.e. after EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg).

    - Therefore, "for EU Commissioners' appointment, it's too early yet, because we must wait for the ratification of Lisbon Treaty" by all 27 EU Member countries, including naturally Ireland's Referendum on early October, said to "EuroFora" the influential President of EU Parliament's largest group of MEPs, Joseph Daul, expressing, however, the hope that a controversial deal with the head of the Socialist Group of MEPs, Martin Schultz of Germany, might hold for Barroso alone, at a forthcoming vote due to fix the Strasbourg plenary's Agenda.

    But MEPs reportedly just "postponed" for 1 week all their previously scheduled group meetings (See : http://www.euractiv.com/en/future-eu/barroso-unveil-summer-homework-week/article-184825 );

    However, while the choice of a new EU Commission's President by EU Parliament is supposed, according to many MEPs' wish, take place according to EU policy issues, paradoxically, this would mean that Barroso's bid would pass before even the anouncement of France and Germany's "initiatives" for EU's "new Horizons"...

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 ?
