*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- It's not yet sure if CoE's PanEuropean Organisation for Democracy, Human Rights and Rule of Law will Back, Denounce, or Keep Mum, in front of a so Strange Regional Electoral System, as that in Spain's Catalonia Region, which, curiously, ...Transforms an obviously Failed Minority of Separatist Voters, who even Lost the 1st Rank among Political Parties, and Fell Down with - 2 MPs Less than before, (etc), into a so-called ..."Winner" (sic !), of a Crucial Election, with notoriously Serious Risks to provoke Heavy Dangerous Repercussions against Peace and Stability throughout all Europe, and well beyond, in the foreseable Future.


But, at any case, what is Certain, ToNight, is that, in Fact :


(A) the Majority of the People in Spanish Catalonia region, Voted for the Unity of this important and Historic European Country;


(B) they gave the 1st, Leading place to a Pro-Unity Party, ("Citizens" : of the Center-Right, and Ally to Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy, a ChristianDemocrat/EPP);


and (C) even Augmented, with + 2 More MPs, the Representation of the Pro-Unity Parties inside the Regional Catalan Assembly, compared to the Past.


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


+ In addition, the Only Separatist Party which still Persists for an Unilateral Secession, (the Leftist, pro-Muslim Mass Migration "CUP", with some among its representatives reportedly having had Controversial Links even with various Radicalized Fundamentalist Islamists, including Suspects for Terrorism : Comp., f.ex., http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/barcelonaterrorrevealseuropeanpoliticalproblem.html, etc), was Spectacularly ..."Punished" by the People Now, since it Lost almost ...Half of its Votes compared to the Past (Falling  - 4% Less, from 8% in the Past, Down to Only 4% Tonight), and its MPs were Reduced for - 6 Less than before (4 MPs now, instead of 10 MPs Before) !

 

++ Moreover, even the 2 Main Separatist Parties (which have Dropped, meanwhile, their Adventurous Stance of the Past for Unilateral Secession), appear Now ...Separated also the one from the other, with Disagreements on Who should Lead their Collective Movement in the Future. (I.e., the previous president : Puigdemont, who had Escaped and is still Hidding Abroad, somewhere in Brussels, or the Left's Junqueras, who remains in Prison ?).


Left's "ERC", (which had been Distinguished, f.ex. by UK's "BBC", for presenting, for the First Time, a Muslim-Agenda Candidate, Wearing a Scarf and Focusing Exclusively on Muslim Community specific issues alone) Falls Behind Puigdemont's Party, with Fewer Votes and - 2 MPs Less.

Thus, in the two Most Important (among four) Areas of Catalonia, (including around Barcelona), it's the pro-National Unity Party of "Citizens", which Wins the 1st Place.

 

While the Separatist Parties rest 1st at that Area in which was Located that Extremist "Imam"'s Mosque, at Ripoll City, from where, notoriously came most of that Deadly Islamist Terrorist Gang which Cowardly Targetted and Brutally Killed or Wounded Many innocent Civilian People at the Recent Mass Terror Attacks of Summer 2017, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/barcelonaterrorrevealseuropeanpoliticalproblem.html).


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



>>> On the Contrary, the pro-National Unity, Center-Right Party of "Citizens", marks a Spectacular Growth, succeeding even to Become the 1st and Biggest Political Party in Spain's entire Catalan Region at the overall results, by Winning about +8% More Votes and + 12 More MPs than in the Past, with the Result to Reach Now as High as almost 25,5% of People's Votes and 37 MPs.


+ Even the Socialist Party (also, in principle, pro-National Unity), Augments its Votes for +1,12 More than Before, and Wins + 1 MP More, Reaching about 13,9% of the Votes, and 17 MPs.


Among various Other pro-National Unity, and/or Non-Separatist Parties, (including the Center-Left "Podemos", with 8 MPs Now, who are Not Secessionists), the Small Center-Right Popular Party (3 MPs Now) seems to have send most of its Supporters towards the Leading "Citizens"' Party (Comp. Supra), and a Similar manoeuvre appears to have been made also by a New "Dialogue" Movement, (which had Withdrawn its Candidacy at the Last Minute), even if the Catalan Region's Electoral Committee took the Strange Decision to Classify the Votes casted for that Non-Separatist Party among the ..."Blank" Votes, eventually Lifting about 0,5 % of Votes Casted, which should, rather, be added to those obtained by the National Unity Parties. + AnOther 3 Small Parties, which Total some 1,13% of the Votes, don't get Any MP, because they don't cross the required threshhold, (while being also Non-Separatists).


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

=> The most Important Fact, from a Democracy point of view, naturally is that the Total of People who Voted for pro-National Unity and/or Non-Separatist Parties, holds, Tonight, a clear Majority of Votes, with about 52,5%, while the Separatists are Limited into a Minority of Only 47,5%, (even Less than in the Past)...

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


But, Paradoxically, when it comes to the Number of MPs, Even if the Pro-Unity, Non-Separatist Parties Win + 5 More MPs Now, than in the Past, (Reaching 57 MPs, to which should be Added another +8 MPs from "Podemos" Party, i.e. 65 MPs in All), Nevertheless, Because of a Strange Particularity of Catalonia Region's Electoral System, (More "Favorable" to some Areas, than to others !), its Bureaucratic Mechanism astonishingly gives ...70 MPs to the Separatists, i.e., (Despite a Loss of - 2 MPs Less than Before), still a Majority in Seats, ...Regardless of the Fact that they Represent Only a Minority of Voters (Comp. Supra).


=> Therefore, after these December 2017 Elections, "the Separatists can No More Pretend to Speak for All the Catalan People !", stressed Tonight the Leader of the 1st Biggest Political Party in the Catalan Region of Spain, Inés Arrimadas.

She was Speaking at Barcelona, the Capital City of Catalonia, recently hit by the Biggest Islamist Terrorism's Massacre in all Spain, where came vert Largely First, (Both in People's Votes, and in Seats of MPs), her "Citizens" Party's expressive Logo :


- A Human Heart joining Together the Symbols of Catalonia, Spain and EU, which has definitively Marked these December 2017 Elections at the "Hottest" Region of Europe.

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

 + It would Definitively be a Scandal, if some Areas of Recently Islamized "Ghettos", like that of radicalized Ripoll's "Imam", whose Islamist Terrorist Gang Cowardly Targetted and Killed or Wounded Many innocent Civilian People at Barcelona, last Summer 2017 (See: ...), would Abuse of Privileges in MPs' Seats, to the Detriment of Victims' Families and Friends, living in Other Catalan Areas, (including even Capital City Barcelona) !

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 ?
