*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...

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.

Polls
