German People vote Wide Absolute Majority for the Right in NRW Election

Written by ACM
Sunday, 14 May 2017

*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....

    The incoming Swedish EU Presidency (July-December 2009) may still remain in favour of Turkey's controversial EU bid, despite June 2009 EU Elections' results, but it has "very strong demands on Turkey"'s obligation to respect EU Rules, said the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, to "EuroFora", reacting to critical Press reports.

    - "I know (that) the link is often made also to Sweden's position on Turkey"'s controversial EU bid. Indeed, "we (Swedish EU Presidency) are very much engaged in the future membership of Turkey, but not without fullfiling all the Criteria".

    - "It's very clear that we (Swedish EU Presidecny) have very Strong Demands on Turkey, in a sort of concept for Future membership of the Union, ...which will be a Long Process...", she stressed.

    This means, in particular, "the Copenhagen Criteria (on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law), and also the adaptation to the Acquis of the European Union".

     - "If you listen to what Mr. Bildt (the Swedish Foreign Minister) says on Turkey at different occasions, it's very clear : We want Turkey to become part of the Union, in the Future. But we want it to fullfil all the Criteria : The Acquis of the European Union. That's very clear", she concluded.

    The Senior Official of the Swedish Foreign Ministry was reacting to critical Press Reports, from Brussels' Journalists invited by EU Commission's secretariat to Stockholm, who claimed that Bildt was abusing of a ..."Whip" (sic !) against Cyprus, by "threatening" the presence of UNO's Peace-keeping force at the "Green line" which separates the island's Government-controlled areas from the territories occupied by Ankara's army, if Nicosia didn't accept any political solution, regardless of Turkey's demands, before the end of 2009.

        Governing AKEL Party's new Secretary General, Andros Kyprianou, reacted by declaring that no-one can threat the People of Cyprus : -"We shall decide for our Future, and nobody else",  he reportedly said, asking to "keep calm". "In order to find a Solution soon, certain basic Principles must be respected", he stressed, calling those who feel an urgency to use their influence on Turkey. Other Political Parties were more critical.

    This was a reference to recently reported statements by Turkish Minister Bagis, Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan and Turkey's National Security Council (a Military-Political body), accused to push towards a partitionist "2 States" solution, contrary to UNO SC Resolutions for Cyprus' reunification.

    December 2009 is a crucial moment for EU's appraisal of Turkey's controversial EU bid, because EU Council has decided to review then Ankara's compliance with the European position on the recognition of Cyprus' Government, which was clearly set out by an EU reply of 21 September 2005 to Turkish Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan's claims, refusing to recognize even the existence of EU Member Cyprus, in controversial statements he made to London (former EU chair) on July 29, 2005.

    EU Parliament's latest Resolution on Turkey, adopted on March 2009 in Strasbourg, warned Ankara that "the non-fulfillment of Turkey's commitments... by December 2009, may further seriously affect the process of Negotiations" with the EU.

    In practice, the issue boils down to Ankara's "embargo" against Ships and Airplanes using Cyprus' seaports or airports at the strategic EU island, which traditionaly hosts one of the World's biggest Shipping flags. EU has already "freezed" 6 relevant Chapters in EU - Turkey Negotiations since December 2006, after Ankara refused to fullfil a commitment it had undertaken when EU had decided to open controversial "accession" negotiations with Turkey, back on December 2005.

    - "As far as EU - Turkey relations are concerned, it's clear that Turkey needs to fullfil its obligation of full, non-discriminatory implementation of the additional Protocol (to "EC-Turkey Association Agreement"),  This is an important issue....and should be addresseed as soon as possible as it clearly affects the pace of the accession negotiations.Issues covered by the Declaration of September 2005 will continue to be followed up, and progress is urgently awaited", warned earlier in Strasbourg the out-going Czech EU Presidency (former vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra).

    But the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, dismissed "interpretations" by "some" that Foreign Minister Carl Bildt was reportedly "threatening" Cyprus with consequences on the UNFICYP, if it doesn't accept any solution until December 2009, while Turkey is reportedly delaying in an attempt to impose a partitionist "2 States" solution.

    On the contrary, Julin, stressed that "Sweden has strong demands on Turkey'"s respect of "Copenhagen Criteria and EU Acquis".

    Meanwhile, Sweden  is "concerned" about the risk of "Stalemate" in Cyprus' Talks, but is well aware that "the main responsibilities lie with the two leaders and the UNO", Europe playing only a role of "facilitator".

    After carefully verifying, the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, stressed to "EuroFora" that Bildt's reference to UNFICYP "was not linked to a Threat", and dismissed those who "interpreted" it so.

    On the contrary, the Swedish EU Presidency acknowledged the fact that Peace Talks are mainly for the UN and the leaders of the Cypriot communities, EU's role being limited into that of a "facilitator".

    As for Turkey's reported attempts to impose a "2 States' solution", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service sharply replied by stressing that Turkey must respect the "EU Acquis" rules.

    In particular :

    - "Basically he (Bildt) underlined that it's the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus and the UN that have the main responsibilities for solving the problem", started to say the Swedish Senior Official to "EuroFora", referring to the above-mentioned "briefing".

    - "But the EU had a role in sort of pointing out the benefits and facilitating a little bit the outcome for the settlement of the whole Cyprus' issue", she added.

    - "And he did state the Fact, that the rest of the World (i.e. USA, etc) will, of course, look at the differend issues which are at the table, and the future of the UN Peace keeping force is part of what is at the table", she admitted.

    - "I understand that some have interpreted that as a Threat, by the Swedish Minister" "But", in reality, "it's a statement of a Fact, that, when we'll look at the differend issues, one of the issues on which we shall have to take a stand on, is the future of the UN Peace keeping force in Cyprus".

    Indeed, one of the questions usually raised for a Solution of Cyprus' issue is what International and/or European or other Guarantees, by a Peace-keeping force, might be needed afterwards, eventually for a transitory period.

    Questioned anew by "EuroFora" whether (according to critical Press Reports) this could be taken as a veiled warning that, if Cyprus didn't accept any Turkish demand for any solution whatever, it might be left alone to face Ankara's Military Invasion/Occupation, she denied :

    - "He (Bildt) didn't say it in that way"... "It was not linked to a threat, or anything like that", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service stressed.

    On the contrary, "he (Bildt) underlined that the main responsibility lies with the parties concerned on the island". "The EU can try to facilitate and show the benefits of reaching a settlement. But also, when the EU and the rest of the World (i.e. USA) will have to look at it, they will look at all the Facts on the table, and the presence of the UN Peace-keeping force is one".

    And "he (Bildt) didn't speak about that at all", she replied to "EuroFora" question on Turkey's reported attemps to impose, in one way of another, a partitionist "2 States solution".

    Asked whether Bildt's aim was to incite both parties to move forward efficiently, she agreed :

    - In fact, "the EU is really very concerned with the Stalemate in the situation. Yes !", the Head of Sweden's Foreign Ministry's Press Service anounced. That's why Bildt "was hoping for the two parties (i.e. for Turkey's also) to engage and break, a little-bit, the present stalemate, come to a solution of the issue" of Cyprus.

    But, replying  to a "EuroFora"s question on the risk, denounced by several politicians in case of strict Time Deadlines, for Turkey to provoke a stalemate and wait for the time to come to impose a partitionist "2 States' solution", she reacted by pointing at Turkey's obligation to respect "EU Acquis" :

    - "Turkey must fullfil the EU Acquis : That's clear !", the Swedish Senior Official stressed.

    More details are expected when Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt will debate his Programme with new MEPs at EU Parliament's plenary mid-July in Strasbourg, that he has visited already in 2008.

    Foreign Minister Carl Bildt became familiar with Strasbourg's CoE last year, when Sweden chaired the PanEuropean organization of Human Rights. As EU chairman-in-office, he will also chair the 27-member States strong EU Group inside the 47-member States strong CoE.

    Minister for EU affairs, Cecilia Malmstrom is well known at EU Parliament, where she has been an active MEP of the Liberal Group for many years, following also Press Freedom issues.

    Both have already made various statements at "EuroFora", on differend topical matters.



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 ?
