*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) !

Speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", the New EU Parliament's President, former Polish Prime Minister, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Jerzy Busek, welcomed proposals by EuroFora about innovative ways for EU Citizens to attend EU debates before important final decisions which affect people's lives.

- "We (EU Parliament) must be transparent", Buzek stressed from the outset.  "We must have clear answers also for delicate questions. If we don't touch a problem, you must know why, and when shall we decide in the nearest future".. "Because "we (EU) must think about Europeans, first of all : They don't understand well what is going on in the EU. So, it's our duty to inform them, to make discussions here more interesting".

"EuroFora" congratulated President Buzek for the anouncement he made, from the 1st day of his election in Strasbourg (on Tuesday, 14 July 2009), on his intention to make  transparent debates, exchanges of views, etc. before the final adoption of decisions in EU Parliament's Plenary, when issues are evolving inside Committees, (See earlier publication).

And we reminded, in this regard, that "EuroFora" has been advocating a project for EU Citizens' active involvement in pluralist EU debates before important EU decisions, since more than a Decade : 1997-2007+

- "Thank you. We (EU Parliament), indeed, have exciting debates", Buzek replied. But, in practice, "without a possibility for our Citizens to see them, not even by the Press, the Radio or TV, etc., because it is in Committees", he regreted.

- "But, they (i.e. Media, Citizens, etc) might interact with you, with MEPs, etc, May be we can imagine something", "EuroFora" proposed.

- "Yes, (but) it needs, a quite new idea", Buzed observed.

- "Why not through some innovations ?", "EuroFora" suggested.

- "Innovation ? That's it. Fantastic  New Information Technologies !", Buzek realized.

- "Precisely, "EuroFora" has such a project, since more than a Decade (1997-2009), to use new technologies for public debates before major EU decisions are taken", we reminded.

- "If you have such proposals, please come to us, come to us. We must" do something, agreed the new EU Parliamen's President.

    This fits with Buzek's main stance, expressed at EU Parliament's plenary earlier this week in Strasbourg, that the European Union must succeed to overcome a "Crisis of Trust" vis a vis EU Citizens. (See previous EuroFora publication).

    For that purpose, obviously information and debates are valuable, but purely instrumental, procedural means which can help focus on, and highlight a substantial content, attractive to EU Citizens, which needs to be determined by other, political, and not mediatic factors.  

    Buzek spoke about the urgent need to overcome the Global Economic Crisis,  the struggle for Human and Civic Rights, Democracy, etc., the Eastern Partnership, links with Russia, strategic partnership with USA and emerging countries, etc.

    But he also used (while speaking both to "EuroFora" and other Media) the expression : "The Europeans", for EU Citizens. This points right towards what several important EU leaders (including French President Sarkozy, German Chancellor Merkel, etc) have started to highlight particularly during the recent years : That there is a vital need, and an historic opportunity, for the development of a European Conscience, to stimulate e renaissance of a European Identity able to attract Popular support, for the EU to become a strong player in a Multopolar World : In other words, the revitalisation of a project for a "Political Europe".

    By a coincidence, this was indirectly but surely reminded, earlier in Strasbourg, by another ... Busek (this time with a "s") : 

busekcoe_400

    Speaking to more than 650 participants from CoE's member countries, at the conclusion of the 2009 Summer University of its Political Schools, Erhard Busek, (with an "s"), former vice-Chancellor of Austria and EU Coordinator for South-Eastern Europe, pointed at the current need to revitalize Europe's "Identity", forged by Greek philosophy and Roman Law, Christian values and Enlightment's ideas, etc. through the ages.     

- "We have almost the same name with Jerzy Buzek (EU Parliament's new President, who is a former Polish Prime Minister), because both our Families come ...from  the same village, located at the Heart of Europe, which was often shared between Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. But my family emmigrated a long time ago to Austria, while Jerzy Buzek's family remained in Poland", explained f. vice-Chancellor Erhard Busek to "EuroFora".   

 An astonishingly concrete and simple example of European Integration from the grassroots : Starting by EU Citizens, i.e. those "Europeans", that EU Parliament's new President, Jerzy Buzek (this time with a "z"), wants to bring alongside MEP's decision-making proces, (according to "EuroFora"'s main idea : Comp. supra)...
