*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- When "Eurofora" asked the New President of the PanEuropean CoE's Parliamentary Assembly (PACE), Swiss MEP Liliane Maury Pasquier, how did she manage to have 4 (Four) Children, and, nevertheless, be in Shape and so Active for Many Years, Both at Bern, and in Strasbourg, to the point to become, at first Chair of the Swiss Delegation (2011-2013), afterwards Chair of PACE's Social Security and Public Health Committee (2013-2015), followed by Chair of its Rules' Committee (2016-2018), as well as New President of the Socialist Group of MEPS since January 2018, and Finally be Elected President of all PACE Today, at First, she looked Astonished :

- How come that this Journalist doesn't ask me one of the Usual and Obvious Questions, such as, f.ex., on the Turkish Elections, on Russia - PACE relations, on Mass Migration, on Corruption, on ECHR Judgements' Execution, etc. ?, she probably wondered...

- "But, you know, My Children have, Now, become Adults !", Pasquier reacted, pointing at a Fact which is, indeed, Noted in all her Public available CVs.

- And, "then, what were you doing when they were Young ? You didn't work ?", "Eurofora" kicked the Ball Home...

Indeed, Pasquier was, already since 1983, Municipal Councillor, near Geneva, as well as Member of the Town Planning, Youth and Budget Committees, Working also as "Independent Midwife", since 1989, when she Became even Chair of that Municipal Council on 1989 and 1990.
 
Followed by Membership in the Grand Council (Cantonal Parliament) in Geneva, as well as Member of its Committees for Planing, Health and Environment. Promoted, later on 1955-2007, to Councillor of the National Council, (i.e. the Swiss Parliament), Member of Health (again) and Foreign Affairs Committees, and even "Chair of the Council", as well as of the "Federal Assembly" on  2012. Meanwhile, also Chair of the Swiss Federation of MidWives, at Berne.

- "I was doing Part-Time Work then", Pasquier explained to "Eurofora".
But this, obviously, not being enough in order to dissipate all the Mystery, she rapidly added :

+ "And my Husband too", she revealed. "So, he was Helping me", i.e. Each one keeping the Children for a Half of the Day, in Turn.

=> So, that was "the Secret", which might Save Europe's notoriously ailing Demography, (since, Otherwise, many Hesitate to make more Children, by Fear to have Noone to Keep them, so that Women would be Obliged to Sacrifice their Socio-Professional Life) ?  

- I.e., simply, Equality between Men and Women, and a Well-Organized Family !

- But, while Liliane Maury - Pasquier was, rightfully, Proud to show "Eurofora" inside CoE her "Husband, who is Teacher of Art Design", as she told us, smiling, at the same moment, anOther Unusual Phenomenon emerged :

>>> Suddenly, CoE's Biggest Meeting area : right in front of its Parliament's Hemicycle, became ... full of High-Standing, Top CoE Officials, who were, almost all, ...Ladies !

Indeed, Together with the New PACE's President, Pasquier, was also the former PACE President (and Long-Time, Experienced Chair of the Liberal Group of MEPs), Anne Brasseur, from Luxembourg, (who was Awarded a Honorary Prize, in a special, and well-attended Ceremony : Comp. many Brasser's Statements to "Eurofora", f.ex., at: ..., etc), but also the New Chair of PACE's ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group of MEPs, Stella Kyriakides, from Cyprus, (who had also served, Earlier, as PACE President : See, f.ex., her Replies to "Eurofra" Questions, then, f.ex., at : ..., etc).  

Together, Pasquier, Brasseur and Kyriakides, formed now "a "Trio" of Women PACE Presidents, to which was only lacking here Lenny Fischer, from Germany, (Comp. several Lenny Fischer's statements to "Eurofora"s co-Founder, Starting by an Interview published, then, to "TCWeekly", etc).

------------------------------
Pasquier : - "Women as Oxygen" ?...
------------------------------------

+ But, this was Not All : In that, so special, Meeting, in Addition to the 3 PACE's Ladies Presidents, (Comp. Supra), were also present, inter alia, f.ex. :  The Woman CEO of PACE's influential Political Affairs Committee ; the Woman Head of PACE's Press/Communication service ; Woman Head of CoE's Protocol ;  2 Women, Experienced Secretaries of PACE's Presidency Office, Woman Head of the Greek Delegation of MEPs ;  a Woman Translator, even a Woman Photographer, (etc) !

- "I am against Quotas (for Ladies), because I believe that Women can Deserve a Qualified Job, by their own Personal Capacities", stressed Earlier the New CoE Assembly's President, in his regard...

The Predominant number of Top Quality Ladies at that PanEuropean CoE's exceptional Meeting was, indeed, so Obvious, that it reminded, a liitle bit, that Famous Statement of a former Political Leader in Finland, who, after Losing an Electoral race vis a vis the former Long-Time President Tarja Halonen, (See many Halonen's Statements to "Eurofora"'s co-Founder, published Both at "TCWeekly", "MPA Agency", and "Eurofora" itself, at various occasions in the Past, inter alia, f.ex. : ..., + ..., etc), had Bitterly declared to the Press that, "Nowadays, the era of Men has gone, for ever !"

Hopefully, however, at least PACE's Experienced Secretary General, Wojciech Sawicki, from Poland, managed, somehow, to get into the Picture, in fine, showing, at least, that there might be some Survivors...

But, at any case, another Pasquier's Statement, earlier Today, was quite bellied this Evening : - "Women, ... like Oxygen, they become Scarcer the Higher up one goes", had Criticized in her Official Speech the New PACE's President, vowing to try to Change that, during her Presidency, by applying "CoE's Gender Equality Strategy 2018-2023".
 
____________________________
For Transparency and Human Dignity
_______________________________________

 + In Addition to "Equality", President Maury-Pasquier promised also a "Full Transparency" inside the PanEuropean Parliamentary Assembly, during her mandate, (as well as a "Reconquista" of its "Honour", after some notorious "Corruption ShockWaves" recently).

>>> She also Denounced the "Worrying Developments, even Major Aggressions, observed in a certain number of European Countries against Freedom of Expression and Medias' Liberty", as well as versus "Freedom of Meeting, Equality, and Protection of Minorities", she added, while also Speaking in favour of the "Swiss spirit" of "Direct Democracy".

- "Instead of Exclusion and Hate, ... we Must Oppose Justice, Solidarity and Cohesion", Liliane Pasquier stressed, as a matter of general principle.

=> For that purpose, "I'd like, during my Presidency, to Facilitate Exchanges, and Contribute for all of us to Rally around Constructive Solutions", the New PACE President said in her 1st Official Speech, Earlier Today in CoE Assembly's Hemicycle.

- "We (CoE's Assembly) are ... a Union, rich of its plurality, around Europe, that we Aspire to Build, Together with our Citizens : A United Europe, where the Respect of Human Dignity is the Pillar of Society", she Concluded,

(just before pointing, later this Afternoon, also at her collegue, former PACE's President from Luxembourg, Anne Brasseur's Number 1 Quality, that she Resumed, anew concluding under the name of "Humanity").

It's at a splendid Natural landscape, inside a Forest plateau with superbe view over Paris, at Saint Cloud, that the incoming French EU Presidency had the good idea to join together all EU Member Countries' Ministers of Environment and Energy, in two overlaping EU Councils in a series, from 3 to 5 July 2008.

Fresh rain happily dissipated July's heatwave, before a bright Sun shined at the conclusion of the EU gathering around a huge statue of Earth (See Photo).

French super-Minister of State for Energy, Transport and Environment, Jean-Louis Borloo, and Minister for Environment, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet chaired the first EU Ministerial meeting at Paris' area, together with EU Commissioners Demas and Pielbags, surprising Journalists with improvised Press-points, at key-moments of the discussions.

Environment and Energy are key to the development of New Technologies to boost Europe's role in the World, while also responding to Citizens' concerns, stressed Borloo, speaking to Journalists earlier in Strasbourg.

According to well-infomed sources from the French EU Presidency, the aim is to stimulate a growing trend inside EU Parliament, via various on-going Reports developping in parallel, towards achieving the necessary targets before December.

For this purpose, Top-level representatives from Borloo's super-Ministry are expected to come in Strasbourg during EU Parliament's plenary, next Wednesday, a key official told "EuroFora".

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 ?
