*Strasbourg/EUParliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- "Eurofora"'s Project for Dialogue between EU Citizens and Politicians Before Decisions affecting their Lives and/or Society at large, could be at the Heart of the EU OverHaul, Scheduled for 2020 at Top Level, as it results, in Substance, from the Reply given to Eurofora's relevant Question, by the New President of "ReNew" Group (formerly : "Liberal") MEPs in EU Parliament, experienced Former EU Commissioner, Dacian Ciolos from Romania.

Incoming, New EU Commission's President Ursula von der Leyen, (2019-2024), has already announced, in her 1st Official Speech at EU Parliament, last July 2019, that she intends to hold such an OverHaul, (or "ReFoundation" : "ReFondation" in French), with an EU Summit, from the Beginning of 2020.

=> So that, "according to the Latest Decision that we took at EU Parliament's Presidential Committee, the Heads of (Political) Groups must produce, in 1 or 2 Weeks,  a "Framework Proposal", concerning that forthcoming EU "Conference on ReFounding Europe", Ciolos revealed in Reply to "Eurofora"'s Question.

 - "After that, our Intention is for EU Parliament to take over the Leadership of that process", the President of "ReNew" Group of MEPs Announced.

+ - "Do you Intend, perhaps, in this context, to also try to ReVitalise Relations with EU Citizens ?", "Eurofora" asked.

- "Yes ! That's the Central Aim : to Find a way for Citizens to become More actively Involved in the European Decision-Making", Ciolos stressed from the outset.

+ "This Includes even the Choices made on Key (EU) Positions (Jobs), as EU Commission's Presidency, (since) for us, the Idea of "Spitzen-Kandidat" can have a Meaning if Citizens can express themselves by a Vote throughout All EU Member States", (i.e. via an EU-Wide Liste of Candidates). "That's an example".

++ "Citizens should, also, have a Greater Presence concerning the Political Priorities of EU Commission and Parliament", he added.

+++ As well as, "to be Better Involved in the (EU) Decision-Making process" President Ciolos went on to say, obviously approaching even more "Eurofora"s Project...

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


To "Eurofora"s observation that, in fact, even the current "Lisbon Treaty" of the EU, already includes some relevant Legal Provisions, whose Potential has Not Yet Started to be really used, and, even less, to be developed, (See, f.ex. : ..., etc) ,

President Ciolos replied by not denying that, in Principle, but Focusing on the practical "Need to See How we should Organise this, (i.e. Citizens' Participation in Decision-making processes), in Concrete terms", in order to Fine-Tune the Adequate Legal Instruments, etc.

In a last-minute, surprise move, New EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, anounced a proposal in Strasbourg to open an EU Parliament debate on Europe's Identity in the ranup to 2009 Election :

    - "I am conscious of the fact that there is, today, a real Crisis on Europe's
Identity", he replied earlier to a question by Greek MEP Ioanis Varvitsiotes, who had asked him to "advance beyond those who don't really want a Political Europe",

    - "Why not a real Debate on what is Europe's Identity ?", proposed
Sarkozy, in this regard.

    -  "EU Parliament could organize such Debates", he suggested :"It's
better for EU Parliament, than for National Governments, or EU Commission, to
define what is the European Identity", the French President proposed.

    A diplomatic way to avoid obstacles by some Governments and/or some Brussels' bureacrats, reportedly opposed to really free and popular, critical European debates on hot political issues..

    Sarkozy brillantly won the 2007 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections in France in 2007, in the line of the principles anounced at an important Speech in Strasbourg, February 2007, about a Political Europe, and a European Identity on issues which matter to the People.

   

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 ?
