*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 important to create a synergy between "mutually stimulating" EU Countries' moves in order to overcome an "Unjust" Crisis "imported from USA", stressed new French Minister for Economic Revival, Patrick Devedjian, in Strasbourg, warning also that, while hoping for a vigorous Obama US Plan, nevertheless, "Time" is of essence for Europe...

In fact, it's EU's own interest to act Fast, before June 2009 EU Election, since, with Lisbon Treaty not ratified yet, it cannot face again the risk of a Majority Abstention, as back in 1999 and 2004, nor another "anti-EU" mood among Citizens, as in the 2005 French and Dutch "No", followed by the 2008 Irish "No", without endangering rare Historic opportunities, currently open for the EU, whose future is at stake.

From Social issues up to High-Tech Scientific Research, concrete action for Economic revival started from Strasbourg and its European dimension, for the new super-Minister Patrick Devedjian, who visited a Popular Social Housing and Infrastructure project at nearby Hagenau village, before meeting new leaders of Strasbourg's unified mega-University in a Scientific Labo at the Campus, close to EU Parliament and CoE headquarters.

Devedjian, who met also with all the spectrum of Local Political  deciders of Alsace region, close to FrancoGerman borders, wants for deeds to meet the words, in real practice, whenever politicians speak about Strasbourg and Europe's development.

-------------------------------
Devedjan to "EuroFora" : "European coordination can act as a multiplicator by mutual stimulations"
--------------------------------
Devedjian was questioned by "Euro-Fora" on his expectations for reciprocal effects of coordinated European plans :

- "We are living in a (European and Global) system where borders are transparent : When we take measures in France, they produce effects also in Germany, in Belgium, Italy, Spain, or other EU countries, and vice-versa. "So, we can have mutually stimulating effects between national revival Plans, if they are somehow coordinated", ..."They can augment each other's effects, acting as multiplicators and levers". "As a State stimulates Local authorities and Private business, similarly, each EU country's economic revival plan may multiply the effects of other EU countries' actions", he told us.

- "F.ex., when I visited Strasbourg University's Scientific labos, they told me that part of the renovation, funded by France, is realized by German companies located only a few Kms away from the border. Thus, the French revival plan benefits also the German economy. And vice-versa : when Germany takes certain measures, they can have beneficial effects also for French companies"

In an era of Globalisation, "nobody can close and isolate himself inside a Fish-Bowl !", he concluded.

Economy's revival starts from Strasbourg and Europe, for new French Minister Devedjian

This could be one of the reasons for which the new French Minister for Economic Stimulus chose to make his 1st visit to Strasbourg, the headquarters of European and Paneuropean Institutions, in the Franco-German river borders at the heart of Europe.

- "It was President Sarkozy's idea", he revealed, adding also fresh "support to Strasbourg's European vocation, not only with words, but also with deeds" :F.ex., the completion of a High-Speed Train network, due to stimulate fast links with Germany, Austria, Italy, Hungary and other central EU Countries.

- "This Crisis is Unjust for Europe, because it wasn't its fault". The greatest part of the "Crisis was imported from the USA, where problems are deeper than here'', in the EU. The Crisis "wasn't due to a bad managment by Europe", who was affected by problems which emerged elsewhere. That's why Europe must be united and active enough to face this challenge. said Devedjian, who has just won +5% in popularity...

- "I hope that there will be an "Obama-effect" also on Economy, and that the Plan of the New American President will be substantial enough to face this crisis, which is worse in the USA than in our area", Europe, he added.

"Economic Revival overcomes political divisions : F.ex. Strasbourg's Socialist Mayor "Ries agreed that State actions funded by Public Debt are justified during such exceptional circumstances", noted the Center-Right republican Minister.

"Zeitnot" for 2009 EU Elections ?

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

"My problem is Time", stressed Devedjian from the outset, at Strasbourg's University. "I have to engage 75% of funds in 2009, out of a total of 29 Billion euros", he explained later. "Monitoring will be of essence", because we must "avoid bureaucracy or delays. No project should get lost or neglected in complex meanders of adminstrative offices' moving sands", he warned.

- "I must create activities in the middle of the Crisis", he added. Questioned by EuroFora whether he aims to start creating some "hopes before the June 2009 EU Elections", Devedjian, a former leader of the Governing Political Party in France: UMP, did not immediately reply, but revealed, later, that he "hoped to start at least some Projects on May 2009, even if the bulk of Revival Plan's effects are "expected from Autumn 2009".

However, with only 30% of EU Citizens currently aiming to cast a vote at the forthcoming EU Elections on June, (See other NewStory), the  coordinated moves' results are expected to be crucial for Citizens' participation and votes at the forthcoming June 2009 EU Elections throughout all 27 EU Member Countries...Thus, it's vital for all Europe's own Future that coordinated national Economic revival plans start to have concrete results and create hopes for new dynamics before the June 2009 EU Election...

A real challenge, since careful choices are needed : Our aim is to fund projects which "create activities", even "in the middle of the crisis", and have a "lever effect, attracting other investments", Devedjian said. Because the "Stimulus' Plan has 2 aims : A Tactical one : to create New Activities. And a Strategic one : Choose what can become efficient and useful also in the Long-term". 

- "Are you ready ?", he asked Strasbourg University's new President, professor Alain Beretz, with some 700 million euros in his pockets for Education-Research in France. - "We are !", he replied.

- "The Minister's initiative can accelerate funds, and Time is important for us. This concerns the entire renovation of all our buildings", said to "EuroFora" President, Beretz. "I showed some Scientific Research Labos to Mr. Devedjian. But, If we had more time, I could show him also some Education Amphis, whose condition needs to meet Strasbourg's new Mega-University's ambition" to reach the 10 best in the World, as Prime Minister Fillon earlier anounced here.

Regional Prefectures should gather and select projects to be presented for decision before the end of January 2009.

A well-known close friend of President Sarkozy, who succeeded as EU Chairman to launch, in agreement with German chancelor Merkel and even British prime minister Brown, vigorous EU actions against the Financial/Economic Crisis, (starting from the 1st Historic Summit of EuroZone's Heads of State/Government, October 12 at Elysee Palace, followed by Washington G20 Global Summit), Devedjan will have a key role in the realisation of National and EU plans recently agreed in Brussels.

President Sarkozy is expected to arrive himself in Strasbourg, on the occasion of the official inauguration of its brand New Mega-Hospital, on the 9th of January 2009, at the eve of EU Parliament's session here, Elysee confirmed shortly after Devedjian's visit.

EU is due to review its economic revival plans at March 2009 EU Council in Prague, before the April 2 London Global Summit.
