*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- While Noone among the 2 Traditional Groups of Parties can No more Govern Alone the Country (See Infra), a very Large Majority of about 59% of the Swedish People clearly Voted for the Right side of the Political spectrum, in Today's 2018 National Elections, leaving the Outgoing "Socialists" with one of the Worse Results in their long History.


With Only a Minority of about 40% each only, the Traditional "Left" (around the OutGoing "Socialists", etc), and the "Center-Right" (around the in-coming "Moderates", etc), became obviously Unable to form an Independent and Stable Government.


By Winning, for the First Time, about 18 % of the Voters (almost +5% More than before : the Biggest Advance Today), the atypical Rightists of "Swedish Democrats", may obviously become a Decisive Factor for the Shaping of a New Government.


Indeed, Together with the Center-Right "Alliance" of Parties, (led by the "Moderates" : almost 20%, who lost some - 3,5%), the Total of the Right Side of the Political Spectrum approaches a Record High of about 59% of the casted Votes.


Already, according even to Mainstream Press Medias, (such as "Bloomberg", "AFP", etc), the Call launched Tonight by the Leader of the "Swedish Democrats" towards his Collegue, the Leader of the "Moderates", in order to form a Unity of All the Right, despite alleged Hesitations of some, does not seem to be excluded at all from a fair possibility to be realized, in one way or another.


Particularly when Sweden is, Today, surrounded by a Norwegian and Danish "Examples" of various kinds of "Unity of all the Right", while an important Rightist Party participates, nowadays, even in the Finnish Government Coalition, in Addition to the Fact that, even all the EU, was and still is, this Year 2018, currently Chaired by other EU Member Countries with similar, "Unity of the Right" New Governments, such as Bulgaria (during 1- 6/2018) and Austria (from July up to December 2018 included).


Otherwise, Sweden might be Obliged either to go for anOther Election soon, (which might be even More inconclusive than this one, or More Leaning towards the Rightists, given also the Recent Trend of Developments, particularly in the Key Issue of Mass Asylum Seekers/Mass Irregular Migration, mainly through Turkey : See Infra), or seek a Shaky "Refuge" in a kind of "Gro-Ko" between Establisment's big Paties, probably Heading, then, towards a ...Finnish Example, i.e., with the Result to Arrive, Later-on, precisely at another "Unity of the Right" Coalition Government, with the Rightists having been, meanwhile, Strengthened, (as it happened at Helsinki)...


Significantly of the Overall Trend Nowadays, even among the Various Other, comparatively Smaller Political Parties, it's mainly the "Centrists" and the "ChristianDemocrats" who Grow, (more or less +2% More Votes, and +7 or +6 More MPs), while Both put a Stronger Critical Accent vis a vis the Latest Mass Migration, (the Centrists insisting on Cultural and Economic "Integration", while the ChristianDemocrats have just been Attracted by a New Leadership, among their former "Youth" Sector, who seem particularly Sharp in this kind of issues, and, more widely, on Conservative Values). In Addition, it's even a Tiny but New Political Party, "Alternative for Sweden", which was just been Obliged to Split, against their wish, from the Rightists of the "Swedish Democrats", only a few Months ago, being accused to lean even More towards the Right, but mainly formed by the former "Youth" of the "SD", in this case too : They got Only almost 1% this First Time, but they Bypassed another non-represented Grouplet, that of "Feminists", which was much Older than them)...


The Recent new Series of Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attacks, mainly in Germany, but also in France, the UK, the Netherlands etc., will probably accentuate Further, there and elsewhere in Europe, this kind of Collective Socio-Political Trend to Seek how to Protect EU Citizens from such awful and unprecedented Risks.

 

It's true that it's also, at least, 1 Small "Leftist" Party in Sweden which augments, Today, at about +2% its Votes. But it comes at the same moment that, f.ex., in Germany, even a New, atypical "Leftist" Party has reportedly just been Created and Started to evolve, inter alia, also in reaction to Recent Manoeuvers to throw a lot of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants, mainly arriving through Turkey, in areas of Poor Neighbourhoods, with the Double Risk to both create Dangerous "Ghettos", and/or to Hamper the everyday life of some already very Fragile, poor European People condemned to live there.

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.


    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - "EU itself has set as a Criterium (for EU Enlargement) the "Good Neighborhood relations",  and their absence justifies the "Suspension" EU Negotiations, (f.ex. with Croatia), because of a Border dispute affecting the territorial integrity of an EU Member Country, stressed Slovenian President, Danilo Tuerk, CoE's Chairman in office (May - November 2009), speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg including "EuroFora".    

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".


    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".

EU "Solidarity" ?
------------------------------   

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.

Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.


    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.
