Idea Proposed :

Dialogue EU Citizens - Politicians Before Decisions affecting their Life and/or Society


How to Overcome the apparent Contradiction between 92% of EU Citizens' Wish to be Taken into Account Before Final EU Decisions, and EU's Elected Representatives' will for a more Efficient Decision-Making ?

>>> By Establishing a (Judge-controled) Dialogue between EU Citizens and Politicians Before Decisions affecting their Lives and/or Society at large.

=> In this way, EU Citizens would have a Right to :

- Be Informed Before such EU Decisions might be taken.

- Be Heard (on their Objections, Proposals, etc), also Beforehand.

- Receive a Reply from the Competent EU Politicians  Beforehand, which must be :

    * Founded on a "Sufficient" Motivation, (Compared to the EU Citizens' Arguments).

    * with "True" Facts, and

    * with "Legal" Arguments,

    * Pursuing an Aim of General Interest.

+ The chosen Measure must Not be Out of Proportion vis a vis its Legal Aim.

++ If, despite all these guarantees, that Measure proves, Afterwards, to be totaly InEfficient, vis a vis its Legal Aim, then, the Politicians who Decided that, can be Easily Exposed to the Public Opinion as UnTrustworthy or InCompetent, and, in Consequence, Loose the Next Elections.

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

    The Legal Feasibility of such a System Can be Based on a Series of Relevant Legal elements, Most of which are Already Existing in almost all EU Member States, (as well as some elements of EU Lisbon Treaty).

    This results mainly from an Original Legal Research of more than 1.000 Pages, (Chosen by the Faculty of Law of Strasbourg's University for a Prize awarded to PhD Thesis, on a written proposal by Professor Paul Amselek, of Paris II University), that we ha prepared and Succesfuly presented, receiving a "Très Bien" Mention.

    Our Proposal was, Afterwards, presented to a 2-Days Long Collective Conference of many Citizens, organized by Strasbourg's EuroMetropole, Discussed and Endorsed by them, afterwards deposed Officialy in a Report to the French Government in Paris, in the Framework of  "the Great Debate" organized by President Emmanuel Macron at the Spring of 2019.

    Meanwhile, we have Presented and Discussed, at least the Substance of this Project, during a Long Period of almost 20 Years, with Many Top EU and/or CoE Politicians, Officers, Rapporteurs, etc., Including All EU Parliament's Presidents, (F.ex., concerning the Current President, David Sassoli, See : .... + ...,  etc, as well as a relevant Paper on such Succesful EU/CoE Top Contacts).

    We Firmly Believe that, if it's Properly Used and Developed, throughout Europe, such a System Could Help Bring the European People closer to their Political Representatives, considerably Strengthen Modern Democracy, and Stimulate a Wide Momentum for the Emergence of a Strong Europe in the World, at the foreseable Future.

Swedish Foreign Minister, Carl Bildt, speaking  to "EuroFora", denied rumors on Turkey's attempts to avoid an EU check of its obligations on Cyprus on December 2009 by blackmailing Nicosia to either accept any deal with intransigeant Turkish claims contrary to EU values on the island's political issue, or face threats against the territorial integriy of the EU island, semi-occupied by Ankara's army.

On the contrary, the incoming EU President-in-office, speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", promissed that he will act for EU Council's decisions on December 2009 assessment of Turkey's commitments on Cyprus to be kept.


    Bildt was asked to react to Cyprus' President Christofias' denunciation, earlier this week, that some want to exert "pressure" on Cyprus in order for Turkey to escape from its obligations.

    Avoiding to mention any precise Deadline, Bildt, however, warned about "Consequences" in case of "failure" to reunite Cyprus, but without saying whose responsibility an eventual deadlock might be.  

 Asked by "EuroFora" if there is a risk for "Turkey's commitments to "be forgotten or downgraded", "despite crystal-clear EU Council decisions and EU Parliament's latest Resolution on the assessment to make at the end of this year on Turkey's obligations", according to rumours that, instead of pressing Turkey, on the contrary, there might be "pressure on Cyprus", even "blackmail", as Media reported and President Christofias denounced this week, Bildt denied :

- "No ! ", he clearly replied.


- On the contrary, invited by "EuroFora", to "reassure that the Swedish EU Presidency (7-12/2009) will keep a fair stance, based on principles",  Bildt promised that "we (Swedish EU Presidency) will be very clear on all of the decisions taken by the (EU) Council".

He added, however, that "we have very numerous decisions that have been taken" by EU Council, as if he warned, also, on something else.

- "'I am not aware of any sort of statements coming out today''", Bildt started to say, on our reference to Cyprus' President Christofias" denunciation of Turkish lobby's manoeuvers this week, replying earlier to 'another"EuroFora"'s question during a Press Conference at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.


 - '"I know the issues that you' are concerned with'", he added, remembering  the statements he gave us when Sweden was chairing the PanEuropean CoE on 2008.

- "But, obviously, .. I think that Cyprus' Peace negotiations are extremenly important".

- And "'I think that we are at a unique moment in History, in the sens that both (Cyprus') President Christofias and Mr. Talat (the Turkish Cypriot leader), are personally convinced of the need to overcome the division".

 - "It's 20 Years since the fall of Berlin Wal, but we still have a Capital in Europe (Nicosia) that's divided". ,

- 'I don't that we should loose any time in overcoming that"..

 - ''We should be aware of the fact that success will bring great benefits, but failure, will also have major consequences. There will not be Status Quo' " It's a question of seeking a solution, or entering another situation, which is somewhat difficult to see exactly how that could evolve", he warned.

- "That being said, this is a negotiation for Cyprus itself", Bildt admitted.

 - ''We (EU) can support, the (EU) Commission primarily, be technically helpful, and then, of course, there is a specific role for the UN, when it comes to the Cyprus' situation".  

- "At least so far. It might not be for ever'. Certainly not for ever, but for this period of time", Bildt added, skiping now any reference to concrete threats on UNO's Peace keeping force in face of more than 40.000 Ankara's soldiers, contrary to some Press claims, (See previous NewsReports).


     Replying to another "EuroFora"'s Question,  if anyone might attempt to "impose a Deadline for the conclusion" of Cyprus' Talks on December 2009, Bildt avoided to speak of any precise Time-frame, and indirectly evoked the fact that  35 Years of Turkish Invasion/Occupation obviously durated too long :

'- "If I was from Cyprus, I would say that the Deadline was Yesterday ! '",
Bildt concluded.

Cyprus' Government Spokesman, Stephanou, reportedly pointed out that "a settlement is possible on December if Turkey changes its stance", accepting a solution for the reunification of the island based on UNO resolutiona and EU principles.

Earlier, EU Chair, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeld, highlighted an "historic opportunity" to "re-Unite" Cyprus according to EU's "basic Values"' (i.e. Human Rights) and 'Rules'", in a last-minute change of his draft speech to EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    The initial Draft spoke only about "healing" the island.

    Significantly, Reinfeldt linked Cyprus' reunification with Turkey's obligations to respect EU's "Values" and "follow" EU's "common Rules" :

    - What is "called Membership Negotiations" should lead, "at- the end of the day", into "sharing a set of common Basic Values (i.e. Human Rights, Democracy, etc), and following common Rules", stressed Reinfeld from the outset.
    
    - "This is something that those on the Outside (of the EU), are now  contemplating", up "to Ankara", for "a solution" on "Cyprus", observed the EU Chairman, immediately afterwards..  

    - "Both sides of Cyprus have been granted a historic opportunity to together reach an agreement on a solution to re-Unite the island, that has been divided for far too long", said Reinfeldt, modifying his draft text.


-  "The Swedish Presidency will act ...in accordance with Commitments EU has made, on the basis of Criteria that apply", "as a Honest Broker", he promised.    

- "To those on the inside (of the EU), allowing the membership process to become an opportunity to solve protracted disputes, can be tempting", he added.


    "In such cases, we must find solutions that can benefit both sides, and open up a way forward. Otherwise, it would jeopardize the progress we have made towards EU integration", Reinfeldt said.
