*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- At a 3rd Victory in a Row, but the Most Important until now, for the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party of Chancelor Angie Merkel, the German People voted for a Large, Absolute Majority at the Right side of the Political spectrum, in the most Populated, (and long-time Socialist stronghold), Länder of the Country, that of Northern Rhein - Westphalia (NRW) Today.


With 53% of the Votes for the Right, against Only 42,5% for the Left, and 4,5% for "Various" Other Candidates (many of whom are also of the Right), the ChristianDemocrats (CDU), together with the Liberals, and the Alternative, get a confortable Majority of 116 Representatives, i.e. 16 More than the Required Absolute Majority of 100 in order to Govern NRW, while the Socialists, Greens and the Leftists get 83 Representatives only.

The Biggest Growth in 2017 is that of the Rightists of the "Alternative", getting almost +8% More Votes than in the Past, which Enters, for the 1st Time, NRW's Assembly with 16 MPs. It's closely Followed by the ChristianDemocrats of CDU, who augment about +7% more then before, with 33% of the Votes, and 72 MPs, becoming the Strongest Party in NRW. Whiile the Liberals augment for +4% More, reaching 12,5% of the Votes and 28 MPs.


On the Contrary, the Socialists are Loosing about -8% from their Votes of the Past, Falling Down to Just 31% and only 69 MPs They are followed by the "Greens", who lose about -5%, Falling down to Less than 6,5%, with just 14 MPs. Only the Small Leftist Party manages to add +2,4%, but stil remains at Lower levels than the required 5% Threshhold and can't get any MP at all...

 

The real Reason behind all these electoral results of 2017, doesn't seem to be just CDU's Education and Economy policy, despite their eventual Interest. It's much more towards "Inner Security", and Cultural/Historic Identity/Integration that push hard the most Experienced Observers :

(Chancelor Angie Merkel
+ NRW's CDU Laschet, an Experienced fomer Long-Time MEP at EU Parliament)


Indeed, Chancelor Angie Merkel had already Adjusted the CDU's overall line at 2017's "Partei Tag",  earlier this year, by Resuming her main task as being to Prevent a Leftist ("Red - Red", i.e. Socialists - Leftists) spread, and, particularly to "Re-Integrate" (Bring Back Home, to Mainstream Center-Right politics) those People who had Recently Started to go towards the Rightists, in Germany as also in many other EU Countries.


This Move, (accentuated after the Berlin Massacre of Innocent Civilian People targetted with a Truck by an Irregular Migrant among those who had Entered in Europe by tresspassing its External Borders to Turkey in the Past, and various other such Islamic Terrorism-related Incidents, in Germany and elsewhere in Europe.


Inter alia, it's also her closest, long-time collaborator, current JHA Minister, Thomas de Maiziere, who also Added recently Fresh references to "German Culture", in addition to renewed Criticism of Islamist "Burqua" spread, (often notoriously abused as a Symbol of rampant Islamization of Europe), etc. A Result was to limit leaks towards the "Alternative", but without stopping yet them, as well as to Bring Back to active, Voting Politica, many former mainstream Center-Right CDU Supporters, who, emanwhile, feeling recently deceived, had fleed into Abstention, but now started to Return Back, as initial NRW Vote Statistics revealed Today.


In Addition, one of the Particular Reasons for NRW People to be very Critical rgarding Socialists' rule, these Last Years, is certainly also the Scandalous way in which the NRW Establishment MissBehaved when its Officials grossly Betrayed and Abandoned (even .. Blocked, f.e. by Closing Down the Main Railroad Station), UnProtected several Thousands of fragile and innocent Young Girls and Women, (most of them from Poor or Middle-Class Families), to be Brutaly Abused and Massively Assaulted by Gangs of Violent and Coward Thugs, who had just intruded in Europe amidst the "Tsunami" of 1,5 Million of so-called "Asylum Seekers"/Mass Irregular Migrants through Turkey, resulting in an Unprecedented Mass of Sexual Assaults, Thefts, Inhuman/Degrading Treatments and/or Rapes, in front of Koeln's downtown Cathedral, the very Day of 2015's New Year, as even CoE's Assembly strongly Condemned, asking for a full Investigation on what really happened, and for all those Responsible to be found and punished, so that elementary Justice can be done vis a vis Thousands of Victims and their Famiies, (Comp. f.ex. "Eurofora"s NewsReport, then, at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeforenquiryandjusticeonmobviolentattacksagainstwomen.html , but also : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeleadersonrefugeesmigrantsafterrecentattacks.html , http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coetodebatewomensmassaggressionsandattemptstohidethetruth.html  , + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/echrrukinghelpsinvestigatemobattacksvwomen.html , etc).


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


However, the recent 3 Wins for the German Right in Landers' Votes, do Not PreJudge at all the possible Outcome of the crucial forthcoming Federal Elections, scheduled for September 2017, other Experienced Observers Warned.


One of the Reasons for that is also the Fact that, despite a recent trend (Confirmed Today) for at least a Part of former Abstentionists to Return Back to Active Vote, nevertheless, the Remaining percentage of Abstention in Länders' Elections is still quite High, while, on the Contrary, the forthcoming Federal Election of 9/2017 will probably attract a much Stronger Popular Participation.


Therefore, these recent 3 Wins of the Right in Länders' Elections is, certainly, a Clear Indication of the Directions towards which is currently Moving the German People's collective Will, but will need to be freshly Confirmed anew 4 Months Later....

Speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", the New EU Parliament's President, former Polish Prime Minister, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Jerzy Busek, welcomed proposals by EuroFora about innovative ways for EU Citizens to attend EU debates before important final decisions which affect people's lives.

- "We (EU Parliament) must be transparent", Buzek stressed from the outset.  "We must have clear answers also for delicate questions. If we don't touch a problem, you must know why, and when shall we decide in the nearest future".. "Because "we (EU) must think about Europeans, first of all : They don't understand well what is going on in the EU. So, it's our duty to inform them, to make discussions here more interesting".

"EuroFora" congratulated President Buzek for the anouncement he made, from the 1st day of his election in Strasbourg (on Tuesday, 14 July 2009), on his intention to make  transparent debates, exchanges of views, etc. before the final adoption of decisions in EU Parliament's Plenary, when issues are evolving inside Committees, (See earlier publication).

And we reminded, in this regard, that "EuroFora" has been advocating a project for EU Citizens' active involvement in pluralist EU debates before important EU decisions, since more than a Decade : 1997-2007+

- "Thank you. We (EU Parliament), indeed, have exciting debates", Buzek replied. But, in practice, "without a possibility for our Citizens to see them, not even by the Press, the Radio or TV, etc., because it is in Committees", he regreted.

- "But, they (i.e. Media, Citizens, etc) might interact with you, with MEPs, etc, May be we can imagine something", "EuroFora" proposed.

- "Yes, (but) it needs, a quite new idea", Buzed observed.

- "Why not through some innovations ?", "EuroFora" suggested.

- "Innovation ? That's it. Fantastic  New Information Technologies !", Buzek realized.

- "Precisely, "EuroFora" has such a project, since more than a Decade (1997-2009), to use new technologies for public debates before major EU decisions are taken", we reminded.

- "If you have such proposals, please come to us, come to us. We must" do something, agreed the new EU Parliamen's President.

    This fits with Buzek's main stance, expressed at EU Parliament's plenary earlier this week in Strasbourg, that the European Union must succeed to overcome a "Crisis of Trust" vis a vis EU Citizens. (See previous EuroFora publication).

    For that purpose, obviously information and debates are valuable, but purely instrumental, procedural means which can help focus on, and highlight a substantial content, attractive to EU Citizens, which needs to be determined by other, political, and not mediatic factors.  

    Buzek spoke about the urgent need to overcome the Global Economic Crisis,  the struggle for Human and Civic Rights, Democracy, etc., the Eastern Partnership, links with Russia, strategic partnership with USA and emerging countries, etc.

    But he also used (while speaking both to "EuroFora" and other Media) the expression : "The Europeans", for EU Citizens. This points right towards what several important EU leaders (including French President Sarkozy, German Chancellor Merkel, etc) have started to highlight particularly during the recent years : That there is a vital need, and an historic opportunity, for the development of a European Conscience, to stimulate e renaissance of a European Identity able to attract Popular support, for the EU to become a strong player in a Multopolar World : In other words, the revitalisation of a project for a "Political Europe".

    By a coincidence, this was indirectly but surely reminded, earlier in Strasbourg, by another ... Busek (this time with a "s") : 

busekcoe_400

    Speaking to more than 650 participants from CoE's member countries, at the conclusion of the 2009 Summer University of its Political Schools, Erhard Busek, (with an "s"), former vice-Chancellor of Austria and EU Coordinator for South-Eastern Europe, pointed at the current need to revitalize Europe's "Identity", forged by Greek philosophy and Roman Law, Christian values and Enlightment's ideas, etc. through the ages.     

- "We have almost the same name with Jerzy Buzek (EU Parliament's new President, who is a former Polish Prime Minister), because both our Families come ...from  the same village, located at the Heart of Europe, which was often shared between Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. But my family emmigrated a long time ago to Austria, while Jerzy Buzek's family remained in Poland", explained f. vice-Chancellor Erhard Busek to "EuroFora".   

 An astonishingly concrete and simple example of European Integration from the grassroots : Starting by EU Citizens, i.e. those "Europeans", that EU Parliament's new President, Jerzy Buzek (this time with a "z"), wants to bring alongside MEP's decision-making proces, (according to "EuroFora"'s main idea : Comp. supra)...
