In the run-up to elections in France and Germany, EU structural institutions are focusing their efforts on saving Europe from the crisis caused by the unwillingness of the European political elites to adapt to globalization.
Conservative politicians in leading European countries systematically show their inability to respond to the challenges of our hard time. As a result, the EU policy-making bodies have to get elections in France and Germany under their control as the EU reformatting requires the necessary staff in key countries to form virile economic government.
Havas, known as one of the largest integrated marketing communications agencies in the world, is used by the World Bank with the aim to secure election victory of Emmanuel Macron in France, as well as, Martin Schulz in Germany. It is worth noting that significant experience and a wide range of Havas activities involving PR for the National Assembly and Ministry for the Economy and Finance of France, IBM, UNF, as well as, the viral marketing campaign for Pokemon Go and others offers great opportunities for political candidates.
Quite recently, ex-Minister for the Economy and Finance of France, Emmanuel Macron, the younger clone of hugely unpopular Francois Hollande, could hardly hope for a dominating position in the presidential race. But today the lack of a team and programme that could become at least some alternative to the incomprehensible course of ruling Socialists, doesn’t stop him being the favourite of the forthcoming elections. The reason is that not only French, but also common European administrative resources work for Macron now. EU bureaucrats go to any lengths to stop the advance of right-wing conservative forces and put the confirmed Atlanticist in command of one of the key countries in Europe.
In Brussels’ view, the chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), Martin Schulz should be considered a partner of Macron in another leading EU member-country as his work experience in the European structures guarantees the involvement in the Atlantic system of supranational political ties. Aсting Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, cannot be Macron’s partner. She manifests the diktat of Germany in the EU, and that is why she recognizes the need to put national interests ahead of common European interests. In fact, Merkel belongs to such type of conservative politicians as the uncrowned ‘king of Poland’, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, and other Rights, who should lose their leading positions in their home countries because of in-system counter-attack of Euro-optimists.
No wonder that the meeting between the current Federal Chancellor and French leading presidential candidate could not override the follow-up consultation between Macron and Schulz. The case in hand was exchange of support during and following the elections. Thanks to these arrangements, ‘Schulz effect’, which was discovered by German media – the return of the alternative SPD leader, who jumped into SPD engagement and won broad electoral support, to German policy – will increase manifold after Macron’s victory, guaranteed by Brussels.
It should be expected that France and Germany will prove to be only the beginning of Euro-Atlantic ‘Reconquista’. Such public slap in the face to the Polish Party ‘Law and Justice’ as the re-election of Kaczynski’s enemy, Donald Tusk, as the European Council President despite a proper hysteria of Warsaw, may indicate that Brussels plans to renew the ruling elite of Poland as well. There will be someone with the right views to replace Victor Orban in Hungary, too. And then the process will be ever accelerating …
