*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 ?

Brixen-Bressanone/ACM/3.8.08

dsc00382_400_01 

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.

- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.

In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.

The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.

Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...

But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.
