*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- As EU prepares its "Future of Europe" Conference, (2020-2021), the Time has come to Help Bring EU Citizens closer to the EU Decision-making process, and the occasions offered by the sessions of EU Parliament's plenaries, as well as relevant CoE's activities in Strasbourg could and should usefuly Contribute in that direction, replied in substance the Frontrunner in the forthcoming Elections for the New Mayor of the City, Alain Fontanel, to a Question raised by "Eurofora", in line with our long-time Project for EU Citizens-European Politicians Debates before Decisions affecting their Lives and/or Society at large.

- The Main Point is that Everything should be done in order to Bridge the Gap which recently Divides Citizens from Political Decision-Makers, he stressed, as a matter of principle. Strasbourg's European quarter's reputation (including Both EU Parliament, EU Ombudsperson, Shenghen, and CoE's Assembly, ECHR, CLRAE, INGOS, etc), to favour more Citizens than Technocracy, should help, he added, pleading also for a

- "Eurofora" observed that the forthcoming EU's Conference on the Future of Europe was notoriously due to deal also with EU Citizens' role in the Public Decision-Making. Meanwhile, even the preexisting EU's "Lisbon Treaty" had an untaped yet Potential there, particularly, when it spoke about "Regular Dialogue", with "Citizens" and "Civil Society", on all "EU Institutions' Acts". Isn't that a Good Occasion to Meet the Need for Dialogue between EU Citizens and Political Decision-Makers before they take Measures Affecting their Lives and/or Society ?, we asked Fontanel.

- The currently Leading Top Candidate to March 2020 Municipal Elections in Strasbourg, replied to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"'s Question with a Sober and Brief, but Open and Positive manner :

- First of all, Fontanel agreed with the basic observation that the Conference on Europe's Future was going to discuss and decide also on EU Citizens' role.

=> In consequence, We shall try to use this opportunity in order to Contribute into Helping UpGrade Citizens' participation in topical European Issues, the probable New Strasbourg's Mayor promised in substance.

Pope Benedict XVI launched a call "in the name of the common Christian heritage" of "all Christians", to "immediately stop military actions", and "resolutely take, the road of negotiation and dialogue", with "Initiatives" for a "peaceful and sustainable solution" in South Ossetia.

It's with "profound anxiety" that we read "the news, more and more dramatic", on "these tragic events ..which have caused many innocent victims and obliged a great number of civilians to leave their homes". All involved must "avoid to cause more, and worse sufferings to the population", he said.

To avoid this risk, "the International Community and the most inffuent countries" should "make every effort to support and promote .. initiatives" for a stable Peace, he stressed, shortly before his visit to France, where President Nicolas Sarkozy is the current EU chair.

"Together with our Orthodox brothers, we pray for these aims, and we entrust them to the intercession of her sanctity, virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus and of all Christians", he concluded.
