 pe_t_resolution_missing_400

*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Just After the German Elections (but still Before the Austrian a.o.), suddenly, an Expected, officially Announced, and even initialy Registered, EU Parliament's draft Resolution on the "Hot" Issue of Turkey, litteraly ..."Disappeared", out of sight, withOut Any clear Explanation, and Sine Die...


A very Critical MEPs' Debate on the Massive Oppressions inside Turkey and its provocative relations to Europe had been organized during the Last EU Parliament's full Plenary Session in Strasbourg, back on September 2017, i.e. shortly Before the crucial German Elections, (where Criticism on Ankara had Topped even the 2 Leading Candidates' TV Public Discussion around the ways to End Turkey's controversial and UnPopular EU bid), See : ... .


As it had been Decided, and officially Anounced then, in Conclusion of this Debate, a Resolution on EU - Turkey future relations would be Voted and Adopted during the Next EU Parliament's full Plenary Session in Strasbourg, i.e. on "October I".


This was even Registered at least in a Draft Agenda for the present Session, which, indeed, mentioned the Vote of a Resolution on the "Relations between the EU and Turkey", initially Scheduled for Wednesday, 4 October 2017, (according to EU Parliament's relevant Official Documents updated on 27 September 2017).

 

pe_resolution_on_t_gone_missing_october_i_draft_agenda_initial_400


But, suddenly, at the latest since a Subsequent Draft Agenda, Dated from Wednesday 29 September 2017, ... Any Mention (even the slightest) of that matter, ... Disappears from EU Parliament's new Documents !


I.e., obviously, Something happened Before EU Parliament's Plenary session's Opening Day in Strasbourg, on Monday October 2, and, therefore, Before and WithOut any Transparent, Public Debate about that Issue, (which was Not Mentioned at all during the previous regular Press Briefing of Monday early Afternoon, here).


+ Moreover, astonishingly, even several among EU Parliament's most Experienced MEPs, (questioned now by "Eurofora"), apparently Ignored what really happened with that, and why...


++ Surprisingly, even some Top MEPs, among the Leaders of mainstream Political Groups, said to "Eurofora" that it was Not at all certain that such a Resolution might, at least, pass for Vote at the Next, "October II" Plenary Session in Strasbourg, after two Weeks Time. Not even for a Much Later Date, f.ex. on November !

=> When such a Big Flagship "PackBoat" Issue suddenly Vanishes withOut any explanation, inside EU Parliament, and Contrary to previous Official Decisions, repeated more than bis (Comp. Supra), then, inevitably, Legitimate Questions are raised.

Notoriously, finally Anodynous, purely Verbal Criticism of Turkey, withOut any concrete Consequence on Ankara's controversial and unpopular EU bid, has been already Used, f.ex. Before the Recent Dutch Elections, with obvious aims :

Very Mediatic Declarations with a so-called "Criticism" of Turkey's policies, (and with  had a blatant Complicity by Ankara's Government, which multiplied Verbal Provocations, etc), had suddenly Surfaced, then, in the Netherlands, until its Governing "Liberal" Party and others Limited the Loss of Votes in the Elections, after which, ...Nobody spoke again about such matters...

Something Similar Surfaced also during the German Elections of September 24, when even the Socialist Candidate, former Long-Time MEP and f. EU Parliament's President Martin Schultz, in his TV Debate with Chancellor Angie Merkel, from the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, suddenly made a Spectacular "U - Turn", asking to "Stop" the EU - Turkey controversial and unpopular "Acession" Negotiations as such : I.e., a stance that Schulz had Never adopted before, despite many occasions, during his long EU career (i.e. practicaly since 1994)... Such a Move, perhaps, Limited the Loss of Voters towards the Right by the Socialists, who Otherwise, obviously Risked to Fall even Lower than 20%, at the "1O and something" category, (i.e. Similar to AfD's 13%), while the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, (Traditionally Sceptical against Turkey's EU bid) remained at least Steady on 33%+.

Nowadays, it might obviously be the on-going Coalition-searching Negotiations, including, in Addition to the CDU and Liberals, also the "Greens", who, this time, pushed at the forefrTurkish-origin and Turkey-Born Zem Ozdemir (an Initially "Socialist" fan, until a series of Financial, Sex, a.o. Scandals, which eliminated his initial Mentor, Rudolf Sharping on 2002, after, however, having pushed on EU's shoulders the Weight of Expensive and Clumsy, Problematic "A400M" Military Transport Airplane, backed mainly by Turkey and the UK).

In this and Many Other Cases, it's obvious tha the Medias of the Establishment are recently seeking to Boost the Impression of a lot of so-called "Good Turks", in Contrast with "Bad" Erdogan, as if some of them were pre-destinated to take over, in one way or another, after an eventual departure of Erdogan, in a possibe attempt to Limit the Turkish GeoPolitical and Cultural issue into a Merely Personal one, Open to any Opportunist Manipulation, at one or another moment....

But, then, at least, ...Austria (scheduled to Vote in National Elections on October 15) does not matter so much ?....

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") :

    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)...
