*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- After Germany and Italy's latest Regional Elections and Polls, (See, inter alia, most Recently : ..., etc), Now Spain also Proves, even in its National Election Today, that more and more People in Europe, Nowadays, Aspire and Vote for a Unity of All the Right, which emerges Dynamicaly almost Everywhere.  

The Longevity of the Norwegian Governmental Coalition of EPP and Rightists (which Already Won 2 Elections on 2013 and 2017) has proved that Resilience is Possible. The Recent Raproachment in the UK between the Brittish Conservatives of Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage's "Brexit" Party in view of December 2019 expected Elections, as well as Spain's National Results Today, mutatis-mutandis, indicate the Topical, NationWide Importance of this Political Trend at Present.

- Indeed, among the Big Parties, it's Just the Center-Right "People's Party", togeher with the Rightists of "Vox", who WIn +23 and +28 More MPs than before, thanks to an Increase of +4,1% and +4,8% in their Votes, respectively.

On the Contrary, all Others Diminish : The Socialists lose - 3 MPs Less than before, the Leftists of "Podemos" - 7 MPs less, and the Centrists of "Citizens" lose - 47 MPs. Because their Votes are Reduced for  -0,7%, -1,5%, and -9,1%, respectively.

All the Rest are several very Small, or even Tiny Parties, mainly various Regionalists.

=> Thus, in the Outgoing Government of the Socialists remain, now, Only a Minority of 120 MPs, (representing just 28% of the Voters !), while the slightest Majority would Need, au minimum, 176 MPs, (i.e. a Lack of, at least, - 50 MPs Missing)...

On the Contrary, Opposed to them, the Allies of the Center-Right, Gather, Now, 153 MPs, (89 from PP, 52 from Vox, and 10 from Cs). I.e. the Right gets a Lead of +33 MPs More than the Socialist former government.

It's true, However, that, If the Socialists ...swallowed their pride, and eventually Accepted, now, what they had always Refused in the Past : i.e. to Bring the Leftists of "Podemos" inside an hypothetic Government, which might have several Leftist Ministers, for the 1st Time in Modern Spain's History, then, they would, Perhaps, approach at about 155 MPs, all in all.

But, even then, they would Remain a Minority, since they would Lack at least -21 MPs, Still "Missing" for an UnReachable Majority...

In Addition, they would Even be a Minority Government of ..."Losers", since they Already have Lost Votes, and Less MPs than in the Past, (Comp. Supra).

At any case, already, the Outgoing Socialist former Goverment has reportedly Lost about 100.000 Jobs this Year, while official Growth Expectations have just been Revised and Downgraded for the foreseable Future...       

And they will Bear Alone the Heavy Responsibility for a another Failure, since Socialists have just Refused to eventualy form a Majority Government Together with the Center-Right EPP, (the Only Way to Avoid a Minority Weakness : Comp. Supra : UPDATED).

On the Contrary, as far as it concerns the Right, apparently, they can get Much More MPs than the Left, even in the Current Situation, if they play well the game of Alliances with Various Other, Small Parties : P.ex., among others, it seems that they could get at least 162 MPs, if they allied Together with "Sum Navara" (2 MPs), "Canarian Coalition" (CCa : 2)), "Teruel Exists", (1), and, particularly, the "Basque Nationalist Party (+ 6 MPs), which is a Traditional Party of the Right, (with Moto : "God and Old Laws !"), Not Secessionist at all, and has had attracted the Sympathy even of De Gaulle, and Picasso ("Guernica").

Even Most Important : an Analysis of the latest Electoral Facts by mainstream Newspaper "ABC", just revealed that, if the 3 Big Parties concerned, at the Right Side of the Political Spectrum (PP, Vox, Cs), had Formed a real, and fully-fledged "Coalition", (f.ex., by presenting themselves to National Elections under a Joint Umbrella, such as the Name "Espagna Suma", etc., then, they would Succeed to get even More than an Absolute Majority of MPs (177), with the current Electoral System, Thanks to the Number of Votes that the Spanish People has already just given them !

I.e., an Even More Clear Unity of the Right, would have Already Won a fully-fledged, Absolute Majority Government...           

Something that, very Probably, they will, indeed, do, Soon, in the Forseable Future.

Pierre Pflimlin's visionary line : Honouring the Memory of the man who wanted to build Europe on the Mountains, based on Spirit !

 

pflimlin.coe.1997_400

One of EuroFora's best inspirators is naturally Pierre Pflimlin :

We had a chance to personally meet the dynamic and experienced former President of both EU Parliament and CoE's Assembly, France's Prime Minister and Strasbourg's Mayor, only at his 90th anniversary, during an Historic speech at the Council of Europe, exceptionally full of people.

But his energetic figure looked more like a youngster of 19 years old, eager to win the Olympic games !..

Visionary, 2P was, from many points of view :

His daughter, Antoinette, Artist-decorator, and Senator Jung, President of a group of friends, confirmed us an Historian's revelation, that Pflimlin had initially the idea to build all European institutions (EU Parliament, Council of Europe, European Court of Human Rights, etc) at the spectacular heights of Oberhausbergen hills, with an eye-catching view of both French Vosges and German Black Forest Mountains, in the midst of a Forest : A real vision to create a brand New European Headquarters with a big ambition !

But, it seems, that "someone in Brussels" found that picture, precisely, too big for his taste, and threw a spanner on the works...

Pflimlin stroke back a Decade ago, at his Historic 1997 farewell speech :

He urged Europeans to find another, more substantial way, to lift Europe to more important Heights in Future :

- "On which basis can we imagine the birth of a great Europe ?", he asked.

"Certainly an Economic basis ! A solid market economy, meeting also the needs of social justice. A Political basis : Europe must become a strong Political Power, able to influence World's changes, naturally for Peace."

"But I believe that the essential foundation of a greater Europe should be of Spiritual nature : .... The great pacific Revolutions were Spiritual Victories" : They expressed "People's main motivation to live in a society with our Values of Liberty, Democracy, respect for Human Dignity".

"Then, the roadmap is ready : Yes, the foundation of the unity for a large Europe is the spiritual heritage, inspired by Christian Humanism and the Humanism of Renaissance, of Enlightenment, from which emerged a Civilisation focused on the Human person".

"Here is the task to be accomplished. It's very difficult".

"The Time approaches when I'll have to pass over the torchlight. God willing, this torch should enlighten the path of those who are going to build, tomorrow, the great Europe, marked by this Spirit".
