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.

Former "Green-Red" German government's Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's job at the controversial Turkish pipeline "Nabucco" was denounced as "not proper", "very bad", and "incompatible with Democracy", by the new President of EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group, German Lothar Bisky, replying to an "EuroFora" question.

For once, criticism of Joschka Fischer's doings with Turkey affecting Europe, didn't come only from the Center-Right of the political spectrum, but even from his Left side : The experienced Bisky, who has been chairing all over 1993-2009 the PDS - Die Linke party :  

- "Former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer got involved in dealings with oil-gaz business in a foreign country, Turkey, and its controversial Nabucco pipeline. This raises questions about Democracy, also because of the well known problems of Human Rights violations in that country. Do you thing that this might be abused in order to cover up and close EU's eyes on Human Rights violations ?", "EuroFora" asked Bisky.

- "Nabucco pipeline is (only) at the planning stage". And "there are some difficulties",  he observed from the start. But "'I don't want to get into the details of Nabucco pipeline, because I don't think that there is any point for it at the moment".
 
At any case,  "we  (EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group) strongly believe that Politicians should not get involved in the Energy Business, and all these commercial transactions", President Bisky declared on the Joschka Fiischer's affair.

- "We feel that it's something that shouldn't be done. It's not proper !"           

- "We don't think that it's compatible with Democracy either, and it gets politics into a very Bad track", Bisky went on to denounce.
                                                                                                                                                                        
- "EuroLeft  and "Die Linke" always spoke against that, saying that politicians should not get directly into the arms of private enterprises"

- "It is pretty bad if a former Minister takes a job f.ex. in a major Energy producer. So, it's an issue if a Minister who may have seen excellent opportunities, subsequently gets personally grasp of them, in very serious parts of the economy, once he has given up his (Government) job."

- "It doesn't really make politics in general look any better'", Bisky concluded.

Earlier, this week in Strasbourg, other Journalists had also raised critical questions on former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's involvement in the conroversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline to the President of his own EuroParty : Kohn-Bendit of the "Greens", who, contrary to Bisky, tried to find excuses for Fischer, while criticizing his long-time partner, Schroeder for having done a similar move :

- "Shroeder was chancellor", and he "negociated" with "Russians", who gave him a job only "3 Months" after he resigned from the Government. While "Joschka Fischer", on the contrary, got a job with the controversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline only "4 Years after" he left the Government. "He didn't negociate Nabucco", so I have "no objection", Kohn Bendit claimed.

But, many Facts indicate the contrary :

Joschka Fischer was Foreign Minister in Germany from 1999 up to 2005 : I.e. from the year that EU took the controversial decision to give Turkey a "Candidate" status, until he year it started controversial "accession negotiations, (later declared "open-ended" after Sarkozy-Merkel's arrival from 2005-2007).

During that period was prepared the controversial so-called "Annan" Plan (in fact, drafted by others and attributed afterwards to the former UN SG) on Cyprus, which failed after a Popular Referendum said "No" on 2004 with a large Majoriy of 3/4 : 75%. Mainly because it was criticized for making too much concessions to the Turkish side :  Particularly by restricting Greek Cypriot Refugees' Human Right to return to their ancestral Land and/or get restitution of their Familiy Homes and private properties, usurpated by Ankara's Army since the 1974 militay invasion and continuing occupation of the northern part of Cyprus. And by weakening the Central Government, leaving to 2 "constituent States" so much powers and separate interests that more conflicts appeared inevitable, provoking the danger of a break-down in the foreseable future, with more crisis, troubles, perhaps bloodshed, etc., instead of creating an harmoniously integrated, really one federal State.

The controversial Plan was finalized on March-April 2004 at Burgenstock (Switzerland), curiously in the presence of an Envoy by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, then governed by Joschka Fischer, but in the absence of a French and not even an European Union's Envoy, contrary to what was usually practiced on similar occasions in Switzerland (fex. in 1997 at Montreux, in 2000 at Geneva, etc).

Turkey notoriously exploited the failure of the "Annan" Plan in order to convince the EU to decide to start accession Negotiations on December 2004. This provoked an unprecedented series of Institutional Crisis inside the EU, shortly afterwards, when French and Dutch People rejected, 2 popular EuroReferenda by a majority "'No" vote to the EU Constitutional Treaty on 2005, aggraveted in 2004 a Majority Abstention to EU Elections, etc., followed by the recent Irish "No", etc.

"Nabucco" Gas pipeline was notoriously planned since ..2002. It follows an even earlier idea, for an Oil pipeline Baku-Ceyhun, which started to be prepared on 1999-2001 and was meanwhile recently completed.  

So, facts indicate that what is now at stake is based on decisions made during Joschka Fischer's term as former Foreign Minister, closely interested in Turkey's controversial EU-bid.

To the point that he now practically ...switched jobs with a poliician from Turkey, (the State which pays today openly Joschka Fischer), Mr. Ozdemir, who came earlier in Germany, got fast the nationality, and became EiuroMP in a few years, continuing now as head of the "Greens" in Germany, i.e. in Joschka's former job !...

Such astonishing facts risk, unfotunately, to give to German politician Lothar Bisky's criticism of  representative Democracy a topical meaning :

 - "We (EuroLeft Group) think that what is really at stake is Democracy. It's not only about Gas Pipelines or Energy sources", President Lothar Bisky went on to add in his reply to "EuroFora"'s question on Joscka Fischer's personal interests in the controversial Turkish "Nabuco" pipeline.

Such facts, "make People get more distance from Politics. ...People had had enough, and they are fed up !".

- "That's why we (EuroParliament's "EuroLeft" Group) want to strengthen Direct Democracy in Europe. Citizens should be involved in the (EU) Decision-making. In the end of the day, it's not going to help anyone if Politicians are always taking decisions, without involving Citizens. We want to give a voice to the People of Europe. They've got to have their say in the decisions that are taken. That's one of our absolutely fixed and steadfast views. We want more Direct Democracy in Europe. That's how it can become more effective and stronger", he concluded.
