*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelob Marcopolo/-
Experienced, long-time President of PanEuropean CoE's "Democracy through Law" Watchdog, known as "Venice Commission", Gianni Buquicchio from Italy, speaking to "Eurofora" at the CoE, said, in substance, that he expects for an exceptionaly Important series of Top Legal Experts' Checks on Many Recent controversial Decisions taken by the Turkish Government, after a July 2016 alleged "Coup" Attempt, to be Ready well in advance of the Next CoE's Parliamentrary Assembly's (PACE) Plenary Session, scheduled for January 2017.


The New President of CoE Assembly's Biggest Political Group of MEPs, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, Head of the German Delegation, Axel Fischer, speaking Previously to "Eurofora", had already Warned that PACE's main Move on Turkey, about Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, was due to Start then, (See : ...).


Meanwhile, PACE's Director General, Wojcieck Sawicki from Poland, also told "Eurofora", last Week, that the PanEuropean Assembly had Asked from the "Venice Commission" to Check All the Decisions taken by the Turkish Government after that July 2016 "Coup" Attempt (which notoriously durated Less than 6 Hours : See ...), and Expected its Conclusions "on December 2016".


Apparently, it wasn't possible to act Earlier in this regard, since, inter alia, an Official CoE Fact-Finding Visit had to be Organized, beforehand, with the Agreement of Ankara's Authorities, and this is now expected to take place "on November" 2016, (as President Buquicchio Revealed to "Eurofora" Today), so that Venice Commission's Report could Not, in practice, be Ready Neither for the Present, Autumn 2016, PACE Plenary Session, (10-14 October 2016), in Strasbourg, Nor during the forthcoming PACE's Standing Committee's important Session in Nicosia (Cyprus), scheduled towards the End of November, (24-25/11/2016).


Indeed, the President of "Venice Commission" told us that, after paying an Official Visit to Turkey Next Month (November 2016), he expected to Prepare a Draft Report asap. in order to be Definitively Discussed and Adopted by that prestigious PanEuropean body, (composed mainly by Presidents of National Constitutional Courts and/or other Top Legal Experts, and Often consulted also by EU Commission from Brussels), "on December" 2016.


Buquicchio also said that he had just Met with Ukranian President Poroshenko, "Yesterday", at Kiev, where Venice Commission is currently making a Fresh Effort to Help Advance some more, long-awaited "Legal Reforms" in certain Important sectors, Key for the Present and the foreseable Future of that Strategialy located, European Country.
He spoke to "Eurofora" shortly after being Heard by MEPs at CoE Assembly's powerful "Monitoring" Committee, Earlier this Afternoon, about several "Venice Commission"'s "Recent" Findings, naturaly including also on Turkey.


Later this week, "Venice Commission", is due to Adopt officialy a Report on Ankara Government's recent Decision to Suspend the Constitutional provisions for MPs' "Parliamentary Inviolability", on Thursday, October 13.


President Gianni Buquicchio was accompagnied by Venice Commission's Director, Thomas Markert from Germany, with whom he has been Cooperating, closely Together, for Many Years.

(Opinion).

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People.

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.
