@Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- Experienced, Twice Elected President of PanEuropean CoE's Local and Regional Authorities' Congress (CLRAE), and currently vice-President of its Biggest Group, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, as well as a Leading Politician in the Modern History of  Austria's Tirol Region, Herwig Van Staa, speaking to "Eurofora" in Strasbourg, but shortly after the Austian Elections of last Sunday, (See:...), clearly confirmed that, in his view too, a probable New Government Coalition, between the Frontrunner ChristianDemocrats/EPP and the Rightists of FPO party, could Work Well.


He also speculated that the Leader of the Austrian ChristianDemocrat/EPP party, Sebastien Kurz, former Foreign Minister, Number 1 Winner of the Elections, who is normally due to become the next Prime Minister, might, perhaps, find enough Time to participate at the EPP Summit; Tomorrow in Brussels.


But he might, eventually, leave the Foreign Ministry to someone else, Herwig Van Staa added cautiously.


+Meanwhile, Austria is being notoriously a Key for both EU - Russia and EU - USA relations, concerning the latter, in addition to (Austrian origin famous Actor) Scharzenegger's previous California Governorship, nowadays, New US Ptesident Don Trump's Wife, North America's First Lady, Mellania's Birthplace, Slovenia, has also Historic and Cultural links to the Austrian Tirol Region, where is located, inter alia, an Ancien Christian Shrine, visited by a Slovenian Delegation as soon as the Country had become independent, he reminded.


Van Staa is also General Rapporteur of CoE's CLRAE for the Fight against Corruption, and one of his more Speciic Reports (which compose a Series), on the Specific Area of Public Procuement, is scheduled to be Debated and Voted by the PanEuropean body's Plenary Session during the Next Few Days in Strasbourg.

Pierre Pflimlin's visionary line : Honouring the Memory of the man who wanted to build Europe on the Mountains, based on Spirit !

 

pflimlin.coe.1997_400

One of EuroFora's best inspirators is naturally Pierre Pflimlin :

We had a chance to personally meet the dynamic and experienced former President of both EU Parliament and CoE's Assembly, France's Prime Minister and Strasbourg's Mayor, only at his 90th anniversary, during an Historic speech at the Council of Europe, exceptionally full of people.

But his energetic figure looked more like a youngster of 19 years old, eager to win the Olympic games !..

Visionary, 2P was, from many points of view :

His daughter, Antoinette, Artist-decorator, and Senator Jung, President of a group of friends, confirmed us an Historian's revelation, that Pflimlin had initially the idea to build all European institutions (EU Parliament, Council of Europe, European Court of Human Rights, etc) at the spectacular heights of Oberhausbergen hills, with an eye-catching view of both French Vosges and German Black Forest Mountains, in the midst of a Forest : A real vision to create a brand New European Headquarters with a big ambition !

But, it seems, that "someone in Brussels" found that picture, precisely, too big for his taste, and threw a spanner on the works...

Pflimlin stroke back a Decade ago, at his Historic 1997 farewell speech :

He urged Europeans to find another, more substantial way, to lift Europe to more important Heights in Future :

- "On which basis can we imagine the birth of a great Europe ?", he asked.

"Certainly an Economic basis ! A solid market economy, meeting also the needs of social justice. A Political basis : Europe must become a strong Political Power, able to influence World's changes, naturally for Peace."

"But I believe that the essential foundation of a greater Europe should be of Spiritual nature : .... The great pacific Revolutions were Spiritual Victories" : They expressed "People's main motivation to live in a society with our Values of Liberty, Democracy, respect for Human Dignity".

"Then, the roadmap is ready : Yes, the foundation of the unity for a large Europe is the spiritual heritage, inspired by Christian Humanism and the Humanism of Renaissance, of Enlightenment, from which emerged a Civilisation focused on the Human person".

"Here is the task to be accomplished. It's very difficult".

"The Time approaches when I'll have to pass over the torchlight. God willing, this torch should enlighten the path of those who are going to build, tomorrow, the great Europe, marked by this Spirit".
