*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 ).

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.
