*Strasbourg/+RPUniversity/Angelo Marcopolo/- While Ideological and Political Movements preparing the Crucial EU Elections of May 2019 are currently Starting throughout Europe, the Leader of France's mainstream Center-Right Opposition, Laurent Wauquiez, New President of the "Republicans"' Party, (Founded by Sarkozy, as successor of Chirac's  "UMP/RPR", etc), pleaded for a Wide Political Area between so-called "Populist" Rightists/EuroSceptics and an Establishment's Center-Left.


He Topically evoked that on the occasion of a TV Debate with the Prime Minister of France, Edouard Philppe (Centrist), earlier this week, on the recent Mass Migration Issue, as well as Europe's current situation.


+ Shortly Afterwards, a similar Position was also Expressed, in even more Concrerte Terms, by the President of the "Republican" Party in Strasbourg's Department, Laurent Furst, mainly in Reply to a relevant "Eurofora"s Question, (See Infra), during "RP"'s Annual "Summer University" 2018 for Strasbourg's Region, at a Collective Meeting Yesterday Evening, (where "Eurofora" had been Invited for Press coverage, by the main Organiser, vice-President of Lower-Rhine's Department, in charge of Strasbourg, and former MP, Jean-Philippe Maurer, as well as the "Republicans"' regional Secretary General, Mayor Georges Schuler).


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


- In particular, Wauquiez strongly Denounced the overall Presentation, made by some, between so-called "Populists/Rightists/EuroSceptics" and alleged "Progressists", in view of the forthcoming EU Parliament Elections, as giving a largely Fake Image of the current Political Debates, specially on Mass Migration and Europe :


- In Fact, "among those who Ask for Monitoring EU's External Borders are also many Convinced pro-Europeans", the President of France's Mainstream Center-Right Opposition Party stressed from the outset.


- In this regard, he Criticized f.ex. the attribution of about 250.000 various New Authorisations of Foreigners to Enter and Stay in France on 2018, to which should be Added also around +300.000 more Irregular Immigrants : Do we really have enough Means to Integrate them ?, he Wondered.


+ In Parallel, Europe is Threatened by some Break-Down/Disintegration Tensions and Divisions, (around BREXIT, VISEGRAD Countries, etc+), while, at the Same Time, there are also Risks of Growing Distance vis a vis its Citizens, Warned the French Top Politician, (who has also served as former Minister for EU Affairs).


- Prime Minister Philippe mainly reacted by pointing out that, among the above-mentioned Entry/Stay Authorisations this Year, were also about 80.000 Foreign Students, etc., while Aknowledging the existence of more than 100.000 new Mass "Asylum Seekers" who arrived on 2018. The Government has recently adopted a Law to Accelerate the Investigation of such Mass Asylum Demands and eventual Expulsions of rejected irregulars, he added, while also Accusing Wauquiez for having Chosen the Issue of Mass Migration in order to Criticize his policies, as did also the Rightists, he pointed out.


But Philippe Avoided to mention the Fact that it's All the Center-Right Christianemocrat/EPP mainstream Party, throughout Europe, which is reportedly Heading towards Tackling the Issue of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants as the Major Topical Debate of the forthcoming 2019 EU Elections, (which, Meanwhile, was reportedly also Discussed between Wauquiez and German Chancellor Angie Merkel, during a Visit that he made, Meanwhile, in Berlin)...

+ In Addition, Replying to a relevant "Eurofora"s Question, the experienced President of the "Republican" Party in Strasbourg's Department, MP Laurent Furst, observed from the outset that it's mainly the Historic Founders of his Center-Right, ChristianDemocrat/EPP Political Movement who were among the most Important Actors who have Build Europe.


- So, it has Nothing to do with any eventual Far-Right Euro-Scepticism if we find, Despite the Humanism with which have to be treated Real Refugees, that, Recently, some Changes are needed, and some "Technocrats" should be Criticized, when a Great Number among some 250.000 Authorisations to Enter/Stay in France on 2018, added to about 300.000 more Irregular Migrants this Same Year, may present a Real Problem, which has to be Tackled, (particularly in the Transit and/or Origin Countries), in order to Protect also the European Society and even the Safety of EU Citizens, he Concluded in substance.


=> Furst was lively Applauded by the People, when he made that Point on such a Topical Issue, given also a New Trend of Deadly Knife or Car Attacks by Islamist irregular Migrants (most of whom Arrived through Turkey since 2015-2016), cowardly Targetting innocent Civilian People in Europe, (in France, the Netherlands, UK, and particularly Germany, etc), anew Recently.


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


+ In Addition, the experienced President of Strasbourg Department's "Republicans" seized even anOther concrete Chance to illustrate the overall Fact that, Between the Center-Left and the Far Right EuroSceptics there is a Wide Area for Real pro-Europeans of the Center-Right, when he went on to Reply also to anOther Topical Question on BioEthics :


- Asked about the French mainstream Center-Rights' position on current Threats, f.ex. in Francen etc., to Impose, if not yet the Horrible Tragedy of so-called "Surrogate Mothers" (alias "GPA" in France), at least that of Artificial Births' Technologies, through "In Vitro" Fertilisations, Transplantations, PreNatal Genetic Tests, Sperm/Eggs' and/or Frozen Embryo's "Banks", etc., in order to produce, (thourgh Tools which may be Controlled by Technocratic Lobbies, with Obvious Dangers for Humankind), artificially Babies for LGBTI Couples, starting by Lesbians, etc., (as some "Leftists" notoriously Push to do Nowadays), President Laurent Furst clearly Expressed his Refusal :


- Even if I'm personally Not Against "Same Sex" Unions, ("Marriage" included, as he said, speaking for his own views), because Everybody, Homosexuals included, has a Freedom to Live his/her own Private Life as he/she believes better, Nevertheless, this Should have Never been Mixed up with the "Different" Issue of "Children", he stressed :


=> Because, to the Question whether Everybody has "a Right to a Child", or, if, on the Contrary, "Every Child has the Right to have a Father and a Mother", I stand Firmly in favor of every Child's Right to have a Father and a Mother, Furst sharply Concluded, lively Applauded by the People, once again...

 

In other words, both Wauquiez and Furst pleaded for a French Right which wants to be Both Critical and European.

 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 ?
