eu_election_results_2019_majority_for_unit_of_right_b_400

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/(Partly UpDated)/- European People gave an Absolute Majority to a Unity of the Right, extended, or not, to the Center-Right, among the 751 MEPs that they Elected this Sunday, after an UnExpected, Last-Minute Surge of a Record-High Popular Participation, Bellying all Polls which had predicted, on the Contrary, a Worsening of the Abstention of the last 20 Years...

According to the Official Results of EU Parliament, mainstream Center-Right ChristianDemocrats/EPP remains the Biggest Group of MEPs, with the Difference that, from Now on, they mathematically dispose also of an Absolute Majority if they are Added Together with all the Various Rightists, currently WideSpread among the Conservatives, EFDD, EFN, independent or unclassified yet, etc.   

It's towards such a phenomenon of European People Voting an absolute Majority for a Unity of the Right, that point, obviously, also several Mainstream Newspapers' overall presentations of the results, (including, f.ex., "Welt", "Parisien", etc : See relevant PHOTOS: Here, Conservative Parties are pictured at the Right side):

(EU 2019 Election Results' Highlights

by mainstream Newspapers "Die Welt/Germany and "Le Parisien"/France)

---------------------------

It's a New Political Situation, withOut any known Precedent in the Past.

 

On the Contrary, Neither the "Socialists", not even the Liberals (Centrists), (despite a slight strengthening of the latter), canNot find Any kind of Majority at all, if they stay Limited Only in various associations between them, and the "Greens", Euro-Left, etc., (most of them due to become even Smaller in case of BREXIT), at the Left Side of the Political Spectrum.

eu_elec_2019_results_ppe_lib_rightists_400 

But, theoretically, there is Still Room for a "Center-Right" Alliance, of EPP and Liberals, with More Rightists than before, as in the out-going EU Parliament's Presidency by experienced Italian ChristianDemocrat MEP, and twice former EU Commissioner, Antonio Tajani, (who, as some informed sources have told "Eurofora", might, indeed, be willing to move Forward anew, after his previous Success to get a Stable Majority withOut the "Socialists", but in agreement with some Rightists, already during the period of 2017-2019, See: ..., etc).

It would, indeed, be a Surprise if Emmanuel Macron's New Centrists (reportedly added to Liberals) might, eventually, Refuse the further development of such a Center-Right up to Rightists' de facto Alliance, as in the Recent Past : Since, a Refusal would practically and symbolically mean that they are More at the "Left" than what Guy Verhofstadt's Liberals used to be...

Meanwhile, it's not only true that the ChristianDemocrats/EPP's mainstream Right, still remains, unquestionably, the Biggest EU Parliament's Group, with about 179-180 MEPs, (compared to just 153 for the Socialists, and only 105 to Liberals), but also that the Rightists' 3 Groups (Conservatives, EFDD and EFN) now Reach an almost Equivalent Total, for the 1st Time in History : i.e. about 175 MEPs already Registered, (who Might Extend even Further).

+ Moreover, there is a Potential to Add, eventually, a Supplementary Number of about +14 - 16 More MEPs, i.e. arriving towards a Total of 189 or 190, by Integrating Many New Small Rightist Parties, which have Emerged almost Everywhere throughout EU's 28 Member States nowadays :

- Indeed, among a lot of New MEPs, (mainly various kinds of Rightists), for the Moment designated as "Others", i.e. "Newly elected Members, Not (Yet) Allied to any of the political Groups set up in the Outgoing Parliament", there are, f.ex. :  

3 Spanish MEPs of the New Party "Vox" ; 4 "Pirates" from Czech Republic and Germany (perhaps for the EFDirectDemocracy Group ?) ; 2 Slovenians from "Kotleba" ; and 2 Slovaks from "L'SNS Kotleba" ; 1 Estonian from "EKRA" ; 1 Greek from "Greek Solution" ; 1 Croat from "Zidi zid" (Bouclier Humain"); 1 German from "Familien" Partei, (etc)...

Even among Pre-existing "Independents" Might be some recruits, as, f.ex., UK's "DUP" (Northern Ireland's Conservatives, until now Allies of the Brittish Conservative Government) : 1 MEP; Hungary's rightist "JOBIC": 1; perhaps, Later-on, Greece's "GD" rightists: 2 (awaiting imminent clarification), etc.

Obviously, there is, still, a Problem of Unity, among the 3 Groups of the Rightists, (ECR, EFDD and EFN), but this may be Resolved, perhaps, if and when the "BREXIT" might, eventually, Start to take Away the British Conservatives, at the Latest : until  October 2019, etc., allowing the Polish a.o. to help reGroup all those New MEPs, etc.

But, independently of that, and/or, once that matter Settled, in one way or another, as far as it concerns the Principles, it's Difficult to understand Why the Left should be Free to become United, (as, f.ex., "Socialist" Candidate Timmermans proposed), while, on the Contrary, the Right should stay Always Divided, (as some claim)...

 Already, there are several, and various Recent Governments of a "Unity of the Right" throughout Europe, (f.ex. from Norway to Bulgaria, etc), and, even in Austria, it was not only the mainstream Center-Right's "EPP", but Even the ...mainstream "Socialists" who have already acted as Allies of the Rightists' "Freedom Party", Both Earlier, at a Regional level, as well as in Consultations for an eventual National Coalition, and Nowadays, at the National Parliament, in order to just OverThrow the 2nd EPP's Kurz Government !...

----------------

In fact, the New Potential just Created by the Democratic Votes of the European People,looks as an Important Historic Reality in the Making:

=> To put it in a nutshell, the current, potentially "Central" Position of EU Parliament's Biggest Group : that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, is of Crucial Importance, has a Strategic Responsibility, and Holds the Key :

>>> F.ex., from one Side, it could Rely on a Compromise with Macron's a.o. Liberals in order to Attract the Rightists towards a Strong and Developed, well Integrated and Ambitious Europe, with a Big and Noble Mission in the World,

while, almost at the Same Time, from the Other Side, it should Make Good Use of Rightists' Claims for Security of the People Facing Islamist Terrorism (See Infra), UnPrecedented Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migration, etc., but also for Natural Family, healthy Traditional Values and BioEthics, Hard Working People and basic Solidarity, National and European, Historic and Cultural Identity and Civilisation, aspirations for Less Bureaucracy, but Modern forms of a more Direct Democracy, Peace, etc.

- In Other Words, such a "Central", Strategic Position for the Biggest Group f MEPs, that of ChristianDemocras/EPP (Comp. Supra), must be well used in order to Create, out of Contradictions, Divisions, and Chaos' Risks, right the Opposite : I.e. to Seize the Historic Opportunity, and Dare Meet the huge Challenge, to Forge the Synthesis of a much Needed, Deeper and Wider, Active Group, of "Real Europeans" !...

The Mystery of Last Minute, Historic Record-High Popular PARTICIPATION

---------------------------------------------------------------------

+ The 2nd big Surprise in this 2019 EU Election is the Last-Minute, UnExpected Emergence of a Huge, Exceptional Uprise in Popular Participation to the Votes, Contrary to many Polls, which had previously Predicted a continuation or even a Worsening of the Majority Abstentions of the Recent Past (since 1999) :

=> Indeed, instead of Stagnating or Falling even Lower, as predicted, on the Contrary, People's Participation to these EU Elections, Suddenly Jumbed Up, Growing even Higher than what it had ever been During the last 20 Years of 1999 - 2019 (always a Minority), to the point to Reach a Crystal-clear, Absolute Majority of 51% of Voters now !

eu_elecs_2019_turnout__participation_pe_400 

- How to Explain this important and exceptional, last-minute Big Change, throughout 28 EU Member Countries ?

It's a well-known Fact that, around and after 1999, the European People had been notoriously Deceived, (many even felt Betrayed, particularly in their best pro-European Ideals), especially by too much concessions made then (under USA's Liberals' pressure) about Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid... The 2005-2007 "No" to EU Referenda, were Key parts of those Popular Reactions, as well as Electoral Abstentions, EuroScepticism, etc....  On the Contrary, after what happened recently, Most EU Political Leaders have notoriously tried to show that, at last, nowadays (around 2017-2019), they Hear the Voice of the People, and often Multiplied various Statements Against Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid, many asking to put

This might, perhaps, provide a possible Explanation for More Popular Participation to the Votes, in general.

>>>But, obviously, canNot Explain at all Why the Abstention Trend reportedly Remained still in place, (according to Most Polls), Changing Only at the Last Days, (possibly Hours or Minutes), and so Radically, that Popular Participation, Suddenly, ..."Exploded" Now, surging from only a Minority of around  40%, Up to a Majority of More than +51% !

=> Only a Last-Minute Surprize Event, of so Vital Importance that it was Able to Speak right to the Hearts and Minds of the People, to a point to Make them Move, Massively and Suddenly, towards a New Direction, could have, naturally, Provoked such a Big, Massive, Fast and UnExpected Change...    

- Was there, at least, One (1) ?     

- Facts show that there were, indeed, ...Three (3), convergent and closely interRelated :

------------------------------------

(a) At First, on May 15, Many People were Astonished by the Scandalous, last-minute Exclusion of any Discussion on the Need to Protect EU Citizens from Islamist Terrorism, during the unique EU Parliament's Debate among Top Candidates in EU Elections, Despite the Fact that it had been Initially included in the List of Topics, and was generally considered as Number 1 Concern for the People throughout Europe, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsfl                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               ashes/news/euparliamentelectoraldebatemaimed.html).

 

(b) Soon afterwards, on May 24, a bloody Neal Bomb Explosion, (at a pedestrian street in a shopping center, a busy Day), hits 13 Victims who are Wounded and Hospitalized, including 9 Women and a Girl aged 8 y.o., several among whom, must be Operated in order to take out of the Wounded Feet various inserted pieces of Metal. Those Explosives are frequently used by Islamist Terrorists, a.o., and the specialized anti-terrorist Police finds that the Perpetrators "acted certainly with the Aim to Kill". An official Investigation for attempts of Murders in relation with a Terrorist activity, started.

Various relevant Statements were made by French President Macron, CoE Assembly's President Pasquier, and Rightist opposition leader Marine Le Pen, etc. See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/paceheadonlyonterrorattackinvestigation.html).


(c) But, suddenly, on 24-26 May, what a Surprize : The 1st  (and during More than a Day: Unique) PHOTO of the "Wanted" Bomber, Published by the Police, at an Official Document (called "Appel à Temoins" = "Call for Witnesses"), astonishingly pictures an invisible Face, Hidden under a complete Cover 100% !

lyon_attenat_killer_photo_more_clear_400_01 

lyon_attack_1st_photo_of_wanted_suspect_as_curiously_difformed_by_police.._400 

Head, Eyes and all the rest of that Head were Totaly Covered, by a Hat, big Black Glasses, and Something Else which Hides even his Ears, Mouth, Cheeks, Neck, Thorax, etc... (it all looks as a kind of Grey/Black strange ...Burka, or, rather, an afterwards added Paint, as often done in Police Photos in order to Blurr the Image of unrelated Persons, etc).

And this unique Suspect Bloody Bomber is Wanted Urgently, because he still is on the Run, and officially declared as "Dangerous"...

Naturally, that 1st, Falsified "Official" PHOTO, which obviously HINDERS to see anything from the FACE of Lyon's bloody Nail Bomber, (Comp. Supra), immediately Started to Provoke various Question-Marks, Protests, Criticism and Denunciations by Many People, at several Web a.o. Fora.

>>> But it's Only More than one whole Day Later, (from Friday Afternoon until ...Saturday late Evening !), that the Police, at last, accepted to simply issue a follow-up Publication Adding +2 OTHER PHOTOS, which, at last, were Not Blurred (so that the Face of that Bearded Bloody Neal Bomber could be seen), Contrary to the 1st one. And this was done with a Minimum (if not at all) of Mediatic Impact, since Most Medias had already Finished their Week-End Editions...

lyon_attack_terrorist_suspect_new_photo_by_police_400_01 

=> Result : The Identity of the Bloody Lyon Bomber is practically Hidden to the People as they arrive to the Crucial Election Day, withOut even Knowing that the Nail Bombing against 13 Civilian Victims Wounded, was, in fact, an Islamist Terrorist attack !

On the Contrary, some_Morbid "Trolls" went as far as to even Spread "Fake "News" suggesting that the Aggressor might have been a ...French or other European Rightist, seeking to Slander some Foreigners, Mass Migrants and/or Muslim Groups, in order to Manipulate the EU Elections !...

Thus, EU Citizens inevitably started to Question, Suspect, and Later Realize, that some, inside the Establishment, probably prefer to Hide a Bloody Criminal, (with the Risk to Escape Punishment, and/or Attack and Kill More Civilian People), than lose Votes, if the Truth was Revealed before the 26 May crucial EU Election of 2019...

(*DLR : Partly UPDATED) Indeed, Once 2 quasi-Normal Photos were, at last, Published by the Police, even too Late for the Democratic process, (Comp. Supa), immediately, more than ..."600" Witnesses rushed to Phone to the Public Authorities, and Help Identify, very Fast, as the Number 1 Suspect for that Bloody Nail Bombing which Targetted 13 Wounded and Hospitalized Civilian People at Lyon,

a reportedly Irregular Migrant, Mr. Mohamed Hichem M., who Recently arrived in Europe from Algeria since only 2017, but had been Rejected by a School for Computers, and was, (according to his "Best Friend", Mr. Islaam), a practicing "Muslim, Praying, and following Ramadan", "Discussing Religion, speaking of the Prophet and about the Coran", claiming that "Syria" was just "a Problem between Bassar-el-Assad and his People" (sic !), and, "even if he had the Competences to Make a Bomb", nevertheless, "wouldn't have harmed anyone", since "he was Never Violent" (re-sic !)... Just this "Sunday" (i.e. 1,5 Day after Wounding 11 People with a Nail Bomb Explosion), "we spoke about the Football Cup", (Not of Europe or the World, but only "of Africa"), as he boasted..., (according to an Interview just published by Newspaper "le Parisien" - UPDATED).

Speaking of ...Football, During that Same Time, at least 2 Young Girls were Obliged to be "Operated in a Hospital, under General Anesthesia", in order to Extract "Many Pieces of Metal" from their Legs, where they had been Brutaly Inserted when "that Nail Bomb had Explosed only 2 Meters from them" at Lyon, as their Father had earlier denounced.

=> So that, when European People are so scandalously Hindered to know the Truth on Time,  on Who is the Criminal Responsible for Bloody Terrorist Attacks targetting innocent Civilians, (Comp. Supra), shortly after having even been Hindered to simply watch, at least, a promised Debate, between Top Candidates in EU Elections, about the Need to Better Protect Citizens from Bloody Islamist Terrorism, as that which Wounded 11 Victims, (9 Women, and a Small Girl 8 y.o., several Hospitalized, and some Operated under General Anaesthesia), etc,      

+while, too Many Thousands among those same Europeans, have also been, Recently, Massively Censored, and/or Banned, therefore Hindered to Express themselves, Communicate and/or Debate in Public at the Internet, by many Controversial and UnPopular, Oppressive and Massive Foreign Interferences, mainly by Big "GAFA" Corporations, (i.e. Private Businesses), in blatant Collusion with USA's Political Left, f.ex. in California, Nancy Pelosi, etc., and even several EU Bodies and/or Governing Politicians (mostly of the Left),

=> then, it's only Natural for EU Citizens to, suddenly, spontaneously and massively Rush towards the Only Democratic Tool that they still Disposed, i.e. this, 2019 EU Election's Vote, with the Result to, UnExpectedly Reach a more than 20 Years' Historic Record High Participation (Comp. Supra) !...

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.


    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.                                       

imag0475_400
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - "EU itself has set as a Criterium (for EU Enlargement) the "Good Neighborhood relations",  and their absence justifies the "Suspension" EU Negotiations, (f.ex. with Croatia), because of a Border dispute affecting the territorial integrity of an EU Member Country, stressed Slovenian President, Danilo Tuerk, CoE's Chairman in office (May - November 2009), speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg including "EuroFora".    

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".


    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".
----------------------------

EU "Solidarity" ?
------------------------------   

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.

croatian_president_mesic_ 

Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.


    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.
