iceland_typical_landscape_peoples_party_400 

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Established Parties Fall Down, with the Only Exception of the Right, (which even ameliorates a bit its results), but with a Collapse of Socialist and Center-Left Parties,


while, at the Same Time, several, more or less New and Atypical, alternative Parties emerge rapidly, preparing an obvious Challenge for the acquisition of Political Power in the Government of Iceland : A strange Landscape, which reminds, however, mutatis-mutandis, more or less, that of Lithuania, just a Week ago, (Comp. f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/iceland2016electionresultsrightbutnew.html), as well as some other equivalent developments elsewhere recently.


Indeed, +2 MPs more (+21 in Total), and 29% of the Votes go to the "Independence" Party (Center-Right), which has already Governed the Country a lot in the Past,


Except from a Recent "Intermezzo", after a Financial "Krach" and a controversial, Short-lived  "Gro-Ko" with "Socialists" and Centrists/Liberals (of the "Progressive Party"), who are Both Heavily Losing Votes and MPS Now, (Less - 6, Down to Only 3, and Less - 11, Down to Only 8 MPs, with just 5,7% and 11,5% of Votes, Respectively).


Even anOther, initialy Smaller Center-Left Party, too ambitiously named "Bright Future", also Loses - 2 Less MPs, Falling Down to Only 4 MPs, and just 7,2% of Votes.


+ On the Contrary, making even More Clear Voters' Preference for the Right,  (But Together with a ReNewal for a Change), it's also a brand New, Center-Right Party, significantly Named  : "ReBirth" or "ReGeneration", which gets, for the 1st Time, +7 MPs and 10,5% of the Votes.


>>>However, those who Win the Most Today, are the Atypical "Pirates" of Iceland, who Multiply to more than Triple (X 300 %), Both their MPs and Votes, Growing from 3 to 10 MPs, and from 5% to 14,5% of Supporters.


They are Based on an Original Program whose Main "Core" is astonishingly Inspired by "Eurofora" co-Founder's 1997-2007 Published Idea (Founded on a much Earlier, 1979-1980 University Research on Legal and Political Developments/Perspectives in Modern States), of Citizens' Right to actively Participate in Decisions which Affect their Lives, and Society at large, thanks also to New Information and Communication (Digital) Technologies,

as well as on certain Socio-Economic Principles, including f.ex., Free Health Care for all the People, Fair and Efficient use of Natural Resources, etc. (Comp. their co-Founder and current Head : MP Birgitta Jónsdóttir's Interview to "Eurofora" in Strasbourg, on the occasion of a CoE's PanEuropean Conference, several Years Earlier, at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/internetcoejonsdottir.html).


But, even if many Polls had, notoriously, Predicted, until Recently, a 1st Place Win for those Original Icelandish "Pirates", nevertheless, at the Last Mnite, it's anOther somewhat Atypical, but a Bit Longer Pre-Existing Party, that of a "Green Movement", which Grows with +3 More MPs, Up to 10 MPs, and 15,6% of Votes, Revendicating the Place of the 2nd Biggest Party of the Country, from their Competitors (but also Potential Allies) : the "Pirates" (Comp. Supra).


++ Even a 3rd, brand New and Atypical "People's Party", gets, for the 1st Time, + 3,5% of the Votes, (but, Exceptionaly, Not Any MP, at least until 100% of the Casted Votes are Counted, Later-on, Despite Iceland's Tradition to Give some MP to All Parties which get More than 3% of Supporters).


=> So that, the Overall Impression, as thing stand for the moment, is that in Iceland, the People really Want to Keep a Course towards the Right, But Feel Also the Need for a Strong ReNewal, if not a Total Change in their Political Life.


Despite some Previous Denials of any Coalition between them, IF the Political Leaders really Heard the Voice of the People of Iceland, as it was Clearly Expressed Today, (See Facts cited Above), then, they would Find a Way to Forge a New Coalition Government with the "Independents", the "Pirates" and the "ReGeneration" Parties, (i.e. an Absolute Majority of More than +52% of the Votes), eventualy in Concertation also with the "Green Movement", (a little-bit more at their Center-Left), or not, Leaving the "Socialists" and Liberals/Centrists (of the "Progressive" Party), to Contemplate, Together with all those SocialDemocrat Smaller Parties, currently Droping Down, (Comp. Supra), an eventualy "Bright(er) Future", perhaps, 5 Years Later, or even at a Longer Distance...

It might not be their initialy preferred "Plan A", but, could it, at least, become their "Plan B", considering also the Fact that all Leaders of those 3 Winning Parties ("Independents", "ReGeneration" and "Pirates" : Comp. Supra), have Both in Common to Start their Names, by a Timely Coincidence, with the Letter "B" : Benediktson, Benedikt and Birgitta, as well as to Reflect Icelandish People's Sovereign Will Today !

=> Will they succeed to Find an Original Way to Respect their Voters and act accordingly ?

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates

eudevdays_400



    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?

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 ?
