     *Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
In fact, the 1st Plenary of EU's landmark Conference on Europe's Future, due to Start Tomorrow in Strasbourg, in scheduled to be withOut the Citizens who will take a Key Active Part in that Novel Process, EU Parliament's Head Spokesman, and Director of Communications, Jaume Duch-Guillot, told "Eurofora", while a Top Representative of engaged NGO "Union of European Federalists" immediately Reacted (See Infra).

- "What's really New in that Conference is (EU) Citizens' Participation. While negociations between Politicians is a Familiar event". So, it's not a surprise that, f.ex., "even after an interesting Press Conference of Verhofstadt (EU Parliament's Head Negociator) in Brussels last Wednesday, we didN't see enough Media Publications...", he regretted."So, they (MEPs) didN't yet ask to prepare Any Press Conference for this Plenary" in Strasbourg on Saturday.

=> Because, "in fact, all are Waiting for those (EU) Citizens with which the Conference's proposals and negociations will take place : That's going to be the Real News, and I Expect, from that moment, a Growing Media Interest", the Experienced EU Parliament's Top Official on Communication and Head Press Spokesman told "Eurofora".

    - Indeed, for the Time being, it's just "the Portuguese (rotating) EU Presidency who will Bring some Citizens" in Strasbourg's 1st Plenary, But, for the rest, it's an Independent Experts' Company which is currently on the process of Searching, according to Stict and Complex Criteria, to Find those 108 Citizens from the EU's Group who would be Representative to the Europêan Population's various Characteristics.

    => So that Their Names will be Known only "on July", and "the 1st Plenary" where they could participate might be somewhere "Between the End of September and October" 2021, Because "at First, they Need to Work in the Panels" of that Conference, which are due "to Prepare the Proposals" and relevant work "Before the (Next) Plenary".

    + In Consequence, (EU) Citizens' Participation in the Conference's Plenaries are expected to go on from October (2021) up to around March or April (2022), When the real Political Negociations with EU Parliament, etc. could Start", and, "then, we (MEPs) are going to Enter in the Substance" for the Final Conclusions' Official Report, he approximately highlighted.

    >>> - But, "We Regret that the (EU) Citizens are Not Yet present in that 1st Plenary", and "that's Not a Good Signal for the European People's Participation, and that's Problematic". + Moreover, as things stand now, "there is Not Enough Time for Citizens, who participate in a Small Number, to really play a role during Only those 3 or 4 Months, if the Conference bas to End on May (2022)", Denounced to "Eurofora" the President of engaged NGO "Union of European Federalists" for France, Lawyer Ophelie Omnes, (who is Nowadays in Strasbourg for various Related Collective EU Events).

    => - "So that the Voice of the European People, either through NGOs and/or Directly as EU Citizens, Risks to Not be really Able to be Heard" sufficiently, she Warned.

    + "Eurofora"'s Project has Notoriously, Always, bee to Find some Creative but Serious ways to Use the New Tele-Communication Technologies in order to Allow, for the 1st Time in Contemporary History, in principle, for All 500 Millions of EU Citizens to take an active part, in one way or another, according to their Free Involvement, in the Collective Decision-Making Process, mainly by Expressing their Views and Wishes, in order to be Taken into Account,  Before Final EU Decisions affecting their Lives and Soiety at large, Will be Chosen by the competent Elected EUI Politicians.

    But, with Only 108 Citizens from the EU part (i.e. Not Chosen by Member States), among which 1/3 has to be Youngsters, while All of them are due to be "Chosen at Random" by a Company of Experts (sic ! ), such Too Narrow Limitations canNot really Stimulate European People's participatory Action, as it Should do, in order to Boost EU Democray Able to Back the Necessary Changes for Europe to Become a Sovereign and Autonomous World Actor !

    => In Consequence, to put it in a Nutshell, it remains to Seek a way so that, by "Waiting for EU Citizens" to Participate in this Conference on Europe's Future, (Comp. Supra), EU would Avoid an obvious Risl to be, in fact, ..."Waiting for Godot", (according to the World-Famous Tragi-Comedy of Irish Writer Samuel Becket...

 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 ?
