*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Real Facts on the latest Spanish Elections are far Away from the Biaised Impressions often given by most ordinary Ersatz Medias (or "LugenPresse") of the Establishment.

Both in terms of Equality between Right or Left, added to a wide and Crystal-clear Movement Rightwards, and in the spectacular Emergence of Many "New" Parties (+36 !).

To put it in a nutshell :

- Spain is obviously Divided today : Almost an Equal Number of People Voted for the Right side of the Political Spectrum, as for the Left side...

Indeed, it's all, aproximatively, cut in Two Pieces of around 47% to 48% of People's Votes, most Small Parties included.

I.e. about 47% for various Left Parties, (28,68% Soc. + 14,31% Podemos + 3,89% ERCatalonia, 0,99% Bildu [Basques], etc), facing almost 47% for various Parties at the Right, (16,7% PPE, 15,86% Citizens, 10,26% Vox,  1,51% Nationalist Basque, 1,91% JxCat, 0,53% Canarian Nationalists, 0,36% Galician Nationalists, etc)...

+ More Important Development : Recent Dynamics on People's Votes' Movements, clearly Mark a Schift, with a Trend TOWARDS the RIGHT Side of the Political Spectrum :

Indeed, the Greatest Part of Votes lost by the Moderate Right of "EPP" (-15,87%) notoriously goes to the Rightists of "Vox"(+10,06%), and Only a Small Part to the Center-Right of "Citizens" (+2,8%). In Addition, the Leftists of "Podemos" lose about -7% of Votes, which go Mainly at Their Right side: the Socialdemocrats (+6%), and Only a Tiny Part at their Left ("ERC" +1%). Even among Basques, the Traditionalist Nationalists Win slightly More Votes than the Left of "Bildu" : +32% instead of +22%... (etc).

=> To sum up, Notoriously, the Biggest Change in 2019 is "VOX" Rightists' spectacular Growth for about + 10,06% More People's Votes than ever Before, for the First Time in Spain's modern History.

An Interesting Fact is also that this Party was initially Created by an Experienced, former Long-Time vice-President of EU Parliament, re-Elected during 5 Times in a row, (who earlier was a Mainstream EPP MEP) !

+++ But the Most Spectacular, naturally is the potential Political "Explosion" formed by the Sudden Emergence of more than ... Thirty Six (36) brand "New" Parties, which Started to participate for the 1st Time in Spanish Elections on 2019 !

It's true that the Larger Number among them, appears to stem from various "Regionalist" Groups, (probably a Consequence of the current "Socialist" Government's controversial stance vis a vis several Secessionist-like moves by some, there) :

F.ex. "Regionalists for Cantabria", "New Canaries", "Proposal for the Isles", "Andalusia by Itself", "Coalition for Melilla", "We Are Region", "Extremadurans", "Riojan Party", "Puyalón" (Aragon), Regionalist Unity of Castile and León", "United Linares Independent Citizens", "Andecha Astur" (Asturian), "XXI Convergence" (Galicia),  "Andalusian Solidary Independent Republican Party", etc...

However, several other among those "New" Parties, have also various General Political Aims, of  specific nature, such as, f.ex. : "Free People–We Are Alternative–Pirates: Republican Front (Front Republicà)" (0,43%, i.e. More than what "Vox" used to have...), "Act" (founded by former judge Baltasar Garzón), "Progressive Voices", "For a Fairer World", "En Masse", "Communist Party of the Workers of Spain", (one more, among many such claims !), "Left in Positive", "Convergents", "Retirees Party for the Future. Dignity and Democracy" (sic !), "European Solidarity Action Party", "Feminism8", "Plural Democracy", "Centered", "Defense of the Public" (Dreaming to Copy what was just done in the latest Ukranian presidential elections ?), (etc).

=> Inevitably, in such a Context, the LAST one, (i.e. the Smallest "New" Party which took the Less Votes, arriving at the END of the List), was : -"UNION for everyone" in Spain !...

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

>>> Despite all that, the System, Curiously, gave some very Different "Results", at the end of the Official pipeline, by attributing, Comparatively, much More MPs to the Left, than to the Right, even for en Equal number of People's Votes...

F.ex., the "Socialists" got +38 MPs more, for Only +6% Votes more, while, on the Contrary, "Vox"'s Rightists were given Less MPs (+24 only), for ...More People's Votes (+10,06%)... I.e. not even the Bigger number of MPs that the Centrists of "Citizens" got (+25) for much Less People's Votes (Only +2,88%) ! Similar phenomenon, apparently, even among Basques : the Traditionalist "Nationalists" were given Only one (1) MP, for ...More Votes (+0,32%) than their Competitors of "Bildu" (Left : +0,22% Only), who, received, However, the ...Double Number of New MPs : +2 ! (Such Examples could be Multiplied). 

Result : Spain has, in fact, become apparently UnGovernable, at least for the time being, withOut any Clear Majority, practically Returning Back to its Pre-Electoral situation, (with the Exception of he succesful emergence of the Rightist "Vox" Party).

=> In such Circumstances, it's Not Surprizing, that, at least some Spanish Voters, apparently, became, nowadays, so ...Exasperated, that they Felt Unable to find Better today, than to Vote for anOther "New" Party, brutaly nick-Named : ..."Death to the System" (sic !)...


Let's Hope than, for the sake of Spanish People and all Europe, Spain will finaly succeed, asap, to overcome its current problems, and Find Better Political Solutions in the foreseable Future !

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates

eudevdays_400



    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?

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 ?
