*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Modern Web Technologies give a Chance to put Europe at Citizens' hands, instead of just Bureaucrats, and we must explore this potential in the foreseable Future, Replied in substance to our Question about "Eurofora"s project the Top Candidate in the forthcoming EU Elections, President of EU Parliament's Biggest Group, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, German MEP Manfred Weber, who is also SpitzenKandidate for the Next EU Commission's Presidency in the period of 2019-2024.

- "Eurofora" had asked Weber whether the recent Problems attested in Many Countries in the World about Citizens' Distance or even mistrust vis a vis Public Institutions, should be Faced in Europe also by Activating a largely untapped yet Potential of EU's Lisbon Treaty to Develop "Regular Dialogue" between "Civil Society" and "European Institutions" on their main "Actions", particularly by using the Simple and Easy Links nowadays offered by Internet TeleCommunications, with Regular Debates Before important Decisions are taken, which affect People's Lives and/or Society at large.

- Indeed, "Internet offers Opportunities to increase the Participation of (EU) Citizens", Weber agreed from the outset.

=> - "So, we (EU) have to look for Modern Bases in order to involve People", he urged.

>>> - Because "Europe must be in the Hands of (EU) Citizens !", Manfred Weber argued, going at the Heart of the Matter.

 - Since, in fact, EU's Future is "Not just about Bureaucrats, Technicians, or Politicians alone : It's (now) more up to the Citizens, he concluded in his Reply to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"s Question

+ Meanwhile, Weber had just Stressed the Importance that he gives to practical and efficient, democratic "Compromises" in European Policy, which enable various forces to Work "Together".  

Significantly, he was Speaking shortly after an Exceptional - and, probably, his Concluding - Press Conference at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, at the Last Plenary Session of this April 2019, before the Crucial EU Elections on May.

- Following some recent "Crisis", (as, f.ex., that of "BREXIT", a sudden Mass Migration huge "Tsunami" mainly through Turkey (on 2015/2016+), etc., People need, Now, in Europe, mainly a "Stability", he observed.

- This includes, particularly, Recent and Forthcoming, Future Developments mainly in order to Protect the "Security" of Citizens, to efficiently Face the Challenge of "Mass Migration", as well as to pursue Further Europe's "Economic Growth", he Highlighted, in a threefold plan.

On this occasion, Weber symbolically announced that he intends to Start his official pre-Electoral EU Camaign, next Tuesday, "in Greece".

Meanwhile, he had already expressed, from the outset, his Solidarity also with France, concerning Yesterday's (Monday evening's), non-elucidated yet, UnPrecedented Fire and partial Desruction of the landmark, Popular Historic and UNESCO Monument of "Notre Dame de Paris" almost Millenary Cathedral :

- "It's not only French, but also our European common History and Identity", stressed the Top ChristianDemocrat/EPP political leader from Germany, since the Beginning of his Statements to Journalists today.

F.ex. "Eurofora"'s co-Founder remembers, indeed, the fact that, when just a Child aged only 11, spontaneously got the shivers, when visiting the awesome "Notre Dame de Paris"' upper Floors (those that were, precisely, Destroyed by an unprecedented Fire yesterday), heading right in front of the SunLight, and thinking at the Historic People's Human lives and Social struggles, as unforgettably depicted by the World-famous Writer Victor Hugo there...

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

Forthcoming EU Chairman, French President Nikolas Sarkozy, created a surprise by declaring that the challenge of the Irish "No" to the EU Treaty, stimulates his belief that we must immediately change the way Europe is built.

A difficult but fascinating task, that he intends to accomplish in the next 6 Months, during which he will analyse developments 3 times to EU Parliament in Strasbourg, on July, October and December 2008.

But Agenda obliged to give a first reply to Questions raised by the Irish Referendum, on the sidelines of a Press Conference with USA President GWBush, in Paris' Elysee palace, Saturday :

Sarkozy's reply was twofold :

First, the Franco-German position is that EU must make sure "that the Irish Incident does not become a Crisis". Ratification must continue, after 18 EU Member States, also to the rest, as UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown promised.

But, pointing at deeper causes, Sarkozy also criticized bureaucratic "sabotage" of Europe's "founding fathers" original dream.
