*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.

Facing a 70% Abstention threat in 2009 Election, EU endorses EuroFora's idea for Citizens' debates on crucial EU decisions !

- Different views on "Europe's Future", should be debated among Citizens at June 2009 EU Elections, thanks to political Parties' "Manifestos", says EU Parliament's Report


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
A main idea, initiated and promoted by EuroFora's founders since 1997: the vital need to develop European Citizens' democratic right to actively participate in multilingual debates on EU decisions, is formally endorsed by the EU from 2009 !

The move is a key attempt to overcome "catastrophic" Polls which warn that only ...30% of Citizens are ready to vote in the forthcoming June 2009 EU Election !  This was revealed by EU Commission's vice-president, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, during a "hot" meeting of EU Parliament's Committee on Culture and Education, during the December 2008 Strasbourg session.

Wallstrom faced criticism, but also suggestions from various MEPs, naturally worried by Abstention threats which herself found even "worse" than in 1999 or 2004...

A Report on "Active Dialogue with Citizens",examined at the same time, presented some useful practical tips, on "facilitating Interviews"; etc., but also a  potentialy important call to "incorporate the conclusions of ...debates...into (EU) policies, and take into consideration the expectations that Citizens have of the EU when deciding". An amendment even implies that Citizens' participation in debates on EU decisions is a democratic "Right".

More importantly, it finds that  a Debate "on the Future of Europe", (as French President Nicolas Sarkozy has asked since 2007), would be a good idea " for the 2009 European parliamentary Elections", because "clarifying the political differences between the EU political parties would help citizens to identify themselves with, and choose between various concepts", for which "all parties (should) present their Manifesto".

A "Joint political declaration on Communicating Europe in Partnership", co-signed by "the European Parliament, Council and ... Commission", confirms that they "attach the utmost importance to improving communication on EU issues", by "enabling European citizens to exercise their right to participate in the democratic life of the Union, in which decisions are taken as openly as possible and as closely as possible to the citizens, observing the principles of pluralism, participation, openness and transparency".

This should "enable Citizens to exercise their right to express their views and to participate actively in the public Debate on European Union issues", while also "promoting the respect of multilingualism". In this regard, EU confirms its "wish to develop synergies with national, regional and local authorities as well as with representatives of Civil Society".

    It's since 1997 that a group of EuroFora's founders have officially presented a pioneer Project (then called "EIW", for "Europe in the World"), which aimed to develop Strasbourg's "Polyphonic music", by providing "Interactive information", on "main issues ... during the Decision-making process of European Organizations which engage in Transparent and Public Democratic Debates"

    This should be done, inter alia, by "exploring the potential of New Communication Tools (mainly Internet)", as well as classic-form debates, the 1997 EIW pioneer project's anounced in its "Synopsis". It was formally "accepted for evaluation" by EU Commission in Brussels in order to be examined for a grant in the framework of the "Research/Technology/Development (RTD) Programme in the field of Information Technologies", then called "ESPRIT", as a "Best Practice Pilot Project".

        But the vital, urgent Political need for EU to search new, efficient ways to reach the People and interact with European Citizens, was really felt in Brussels and elsewhere only after the unprecedented in History 1999 and 2004 Majority Abstention in EU Elections, followed by 3 "NO" in Referenda in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, on 2005 and 2008...
    In this New Political Landscape, we prepared a new, actualised and more developed version of our initial idea, in a simplified and more efficient form, thanks also to a large Experience accumulated during many years of EU/CoE/UNO Press work and Multi-lingual debates, with the New project "EuroFora" :

    On 2006 we presented in Public its main lines during Questions/Replies that we raised at two Press Conferences by EU Commission President, Jose Baroso, and mainly EU Commission's vice-President, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, together with EU Parliament's vice-president, Alejo Vidal-Quadras, in Strasbourg, (Videos available), and we reminded it at various brief contacts with Commissioner Wallstrom in 2007 and 2008.

    Meanwhile, a new Text was also presented for "EuroFora" Project mainly to certain Political and other personalities, at European, National or Regional/Local level, mainly in 2007, but also in 2008..

    Now, after the unexpected 2008 Irish "NO", and before the 2009 EU Elections, which are due to be of exceptionally crucial importance for Europe's Future, the moment has obviously come to launch that project, progressively, but in real practice.

    Whoever really cares for Europe and its Citizens is welcome to join, in one way or another. Only anti-European, anti-democratic, obscure or ignorant groups might oppose or attempt to "steal" and deviate the main idea.

    But European Citizens, incited by enlightened political leaders, are those who will finally write the real History.

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 ?
