*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 !

Brixen-Bressanone/ACM/3.8.08

dsc00382_400_01 

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.

- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.

In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.

The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.

Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...

But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.
