Rumours that Socialists negotiate with Rightists in Austria !

*Brussels/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- While speculations are still going on about possible Coalitions for a New Government in Austria, lead by Frontrunner, and Number 1 Winner, Sebastian Kurz, Leader of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, paradoxal rumours started to circulate also here, about alleged Negotiations between the Socialists and the Rightists of FPO !...

Such an UnExpected, Counter-Nature "U-Turn", might not be so UnThinkable in Austria, where, already, some kind of Socialists - Rightists (FPO) unholly Cooperations reportedly exist, already, in one way or another, on the Local - Regional level.

Moreover, sheer Numbers clearly show that, indeed, if the Votes for Sociaists and Rightists were Added Together, they might snatch the Top Job...

Even if each one among them has been clearly Distanced by the very Higher Result of the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, led by Kurz. Even if the Political Ideas with which they have been nourishing their Voters all this Time was, obviously, at the Extreme Opposite of each other  !

Meanwhile, normally, the Austrian President, Alexander Van Der Bellen, is expected to give a 1st Mandate to Sebastien Kurz in order to try to form a New Government, either oBrief n Friday or Next Monday.


 Van der Bellens initial Political Party : the "Greens", were Swept away from the National Parliament, without even 1 MP, at the recent Elections (See:...). But he had been elected, himself,, by a Wider Political Spectrum, including at least a big part of mainstream ChristianDemocrats/EPP.

However, such Incredible, but possible, eventual developments, inevitably provoke an unexpected Uncertainty, (that some might even find Scandalous)...

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    

    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.


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 ?
