*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.

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 ?
