*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.

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates

eudevdays_400



    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
