*Stasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- From the Viewpoint of Strasbourg's Headquarters of COE's PanEuropean Organisation for Democracy, Human Rights and Rule of Law, the Oldest and More Experienced European Body in Checking and Debating in Public  the Legal and Political Quality of Elections throughout all its 47 Member States as far as Respect for Democratic Principles is concerned , which is naturaly due to Deal also with Today's crucial Spanish National Elections of 2015 at the latest during its Forthcoming Plenary Session's week on 25-29 Januray 2016 here, the Democraticaly Expressed Political Will of the Spanish People seems Crystal-Clear :


- Judging by the Overall Results, Both in terms of Which Party came 1st, and particularly concerning the Number of MPs Elected for each one among All the Parties involved accross the entire Political Spectrum, the Final Outcome clearly shows that Spanish Citizens gave a net Absolute Majority to the Center-Right, and a Minority to the Left.


Indeed, the Parties leaning towards the Right side of the Political Spectrum Succeeded to Win the 1st Rank in that Vote with about 29 % for the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, and Elect,  all Together, a Total of 178 MPs, i.e. + 2 MPs More than what is Required in order to be Able to form a Majority Government (176 MPs).


On the Contrary, the Parties located at the Left side of the Political Spectrum, which got Just the 2nd Place with 22% for the Socialists, didn't manage to Elect, All Together, but Only 172 MPs, i.e. a Minority, ( - 4 MPs Less than the Above mentioned Threshhold, and - 6 MPs Less than the Right (Comp. Supra).


Significantly, the Socialist Party Fell Down to an Historical Record Low, with Only .... of the Votes, and just ... MPs, in Addition Looking as a kind of .. De Facto "Regionalist" Party in a Locacious MAP showing Who Won the Duel at the Top of All Areas of the Country, which Pictures the PSOE as having been Reduced Only in a Small Area of the Extreme Southern Part of Spain, near Africa, (as Catalan Regionalists are Concentrated at the North-East, towards France, and Basque Regionalists towards the North : See relevant MAP), while All the Rest of the Country is Clearly Dominated by a Sweeping Wave of Wins for the PP of ChristianDemocrat/EPP Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.


 In Fact, it's a so Unusual and GeoPoliticaly "Spicy" Map of Electoral Results for Spain, that the Only One among the Mainstream Newspapers of the Country which Published a Big Photo of that Map at its Frontpage, (the "ABC"), appears to have been the Best Sold, by far, to Spanish People, OverNight and since Early Morning, as at least several Original Photos clearly show, by revealing that that Newspaper had practicaly disappeared at the Central News-Stands' Selling points. While, on the Contrary, almost All Other mainstream Newspapers which had Ommitted that Map from their Frontpage, limiting themselves to Merely Copy, all a Similar Graphic with Only the Numbers of the Results, (arranged, moreover, in a Way which Didn't give Any Insight about What was the Overall Will of the Spanish People and Where it Stood amidst the entire Political Spectrum of the Country), were, obviously, Left in Big Piles full of UnSold Merchandises, due to be thrown to the Waste-Baskets and/or used for ReCycled Paper, (See relevant Photo - partly UpDated)...

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


    For a Possible Majority Coalition of All Spanish Parties leaning towards the Center-Right Side of the Political Spectrum, the Aboved-mentioned overall Electoral Results have been Obtained by simply Adding to the ChristianDemocrat/EPP "Partido Popular" of Prime Minister Rajoy's First Ranking Party Today, with about 29 % of the Votes and 123 MPs, also those of the New Centrist Party of "Citizens", with almost 14 % of the Votes and 40 MPs, as well as those of anOther New, Centrist-Liberal Party of "Democracy and Freedom" from Catalonian Regionalists, with 8 MPs, and of Traditional "Supporters of God and Old laws", alias "Basque National Party" (PNV : Which notoriously Governed that Region for Many Years, from 1980 to 2009, and was Member of EU Parliament's "ChristianDemocrat/EPP" Group and of the ChristianDemocrat International in the Past), with 6 MPs, to which could, naturaly, be also added, if necessary, the small Conservative Party of the "Canarian Coalition", (which has Governed that Region since 1993), with 1 more MP.


    Concerning the Minority of those Parties who belong to the Left Side of the Political Spectrum, their Overall Results were Obtained by the Addition of the Socialists (PSOE), who came Second with about 22 % of the Votes and only 90 MPs, Together with the New "Podemos" (i.e. from Obama's "We Can"), Leftist Party, which got about 20,5% of the Votes and 69 MPs, as well as the "Republican Left of Catalonia" Regionalists, with 9 MPs, but also the "Popular Unity" Party of the Left, with anOther 2 MPs, Possibly extended even to the Leftist Pro-Independence Nationalist Basque Party of "EH Bildu" (for "Basque Country Unite !", with 2 MPs more.
--------------------------------

      => Such an Overall Democratic Political Result is very Important, both for Spain itself, and for All Europe, mainly Because it clearly Reveals that, in Fact, Both (Otherwise Dangerously Looming) Risks of Either practicaly Cutting the EU in 2 Politicaly Divided Parts, with Center-Right led Governments' Dominance at the North, opposed to Left side Governments at the South, or, (even Worse), Seriously Aggravating a Notoriously Fast-Spreading throughout almost All Europe, Systemic Problem recently Challenging Democracy itself, by a Trend to Multiply Controversial Attempts for "GroKo" CoHabitations between Socialists and ChristianDemocrats/EPP, Contrary to the Crystal-Clear Political Will Democraticaly Expressed in Many EU Countries by the People who Vote, more and more, for a Majority of the Parties of the Center-Right and/or the Right. (Something which has Obviously Provoked the Rise of Various Rightists and/or Atypical Parties, against an Old Establishment more and more Cut Fas Away from the People and, therefore, giving Birth to Manifold Critics, which are very Fast Growing now throughout Europe, and elsewhere in the World : F.ex. even in the USA, already from 2008-2015).


(On All those Points, including Risks for "Sly Traps" by some UnTrustworthy Launchers of Systematic Personal Attacks, See f.ex. an Analysis, already Published by "EuroFora", also on the particular Occasion of these Crucial Spanish 2015 Elections, at the Eve of this Sundays' Vote, at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/spainelectionavoideudivisionbyepplink.html ).


In Other Words, to put it in a Nutshell, the Spanish People has just Democraticaly Expressed a Crystal-Clear Political Will, despite various Difficulties, to Avoid or Overcome Both those 2 Above-mentioned Risks, which Threaten both Spain and all Europe, Simply by Giving Today a Net Majority for a Government by a Possible Coalition of Parties which are all located at the Center-Right side of the Political Spectrum.


It remains to be seen, whether this Spanish People's Political Will shall be Heard and Endorsed also by the Establishment, in Full Respect of Democratic Principles, or Not...


If the Answer to that Question turns Negative, then, obviously, a Perspective to Hold New Elections asap., might be, Comparatively,  a Lesser Evil, (Cf.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/spainelectionavoideudivisionbyepplink.html ).

Fillon invites EU to invent "New Horizons" behind Oil crisis

A pioneer Franco-German research project on GeoThermy, near Strasbourg, served as "Symbol" of EU's will to become Independent on Energy by developing innovative Technologies, while imported Oil prices threaten to provoke a World-wide crisis.

It's essential to demonstrate Europe's will to "invent New Horizons", by creating Environment-friendly, Independent and Renewable Energy sources, while price rises continue for Oil, a polluting old ressource with insufficient stocks, stressed French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, anouncing that this will be a focus during the forthcoming French EU Presidency (July - December 2008).

Fillon symbolically injected a 1st KWh produced by GeoThermy into Strasbourg's Electricity grid, during a special gathering of German and French officials at Soultz-under-Forests ("Soultz-sous-Forêts"), using a geothermal innovation which is "the most advanced in the World" :

The innovation uses Strasbourg's underground water richness to capture Heat, by injecting liquid among Rocks 5 km deep, where temperature is 200 c. Thus, it can be activated at any moment and location, even without natural warm water springs : A big advantage compared to old biothermal tools.

Engineers, Scientists and the Industry will have 2 Years to invent practical ways for this innovation to become productive and cost-efficient in real Economy, said Fillon.

115 Millions of Euros invested, 15 Research Labos, 430 Scientific Publications including 34 Doctoral PhD, and a systematic cooperation between French and German Governments and Public Agencies on Research, succeeded to prove that the new method works.

Already able to serve Electricity to a village with 1.500 inhabitants, the pioneer project intends to reach a capacity to serve 20.000 inhabitants before 2015, as part of a larger Plan to make all Renewable Energy Resources (together with Wind, Solar, etc) able to cover more than 23% of all Electricity needs before 2020.

- In fact, "behind the challenge" faced with the current Oil crisis, there "is a New Horizon that we can shape all together", by "creating New Tools for the Future", Fillon launched towards EU Member States.

Meanwhile, we should intensify Energy Savings, simplify Transports, and help the Poorest cope with growing Oil prices, until EU joins a World-wide lead into inventing reliable and sufficient Renewable Energy Sources, he added.

Many, technologic and other Challenges exist, but they can be overcome : F. ex. the new GeoThermic method tested at Shoultz since 1987, had provoked an Earthquake at a nearby site, close to Bale, by injecting big volumes of pressurized Water in underground broken Rocks near a Seismic Faultline in 2003. But the move was rectified later-on, by diminishing the amount and pressure of the water injected in underground rocks, so that no Earthquake is provoked.

More than 1 Billion Euros are invested by France on Scientific and Technologic Research about Sustainable Development until 2012, aiming to take a 10 years advance, there where innovation can become source of Growth, Competitivity and Jobs, which, according to some evaluations could reach more than 220.000 before 2020, Fillon observed.

During the forthcoming French EU Presidency, together with our German friends, we shall do all necessary efforts for Europe's World-wide lead against Global Warming, thanks to Energy tools able to ensure its Independence, Growth, and Citizens' well-being, he concluded.

The "Enhanced Geothermal System" (EGS) stems from pioneer research initiated by teams from France, Germany and Italy, joined also by Swiss, the U.K., and Sweden, even U.S. and Japan, since the 90ies.

In 1996, a European Economic Interest Group (GEIE) was founded, in order to exploit Electricity-produsing Heat from deep underground Rocks, including France's EDF and Germany's PfalzWerke.

In 2002, a Pilot scientific project started to be tested in Soultz-under-Forests, 50 kms north of Strasbourg.

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 ?
