project, which I presented to the French Parliament, is entirely
suited to adaptation in your country, which I - like all democratic
countries - must tackle the problems of abstention and
I commend it to you with pleasure for your
possible own use. I should point out that my idea could also be
implemented for "PARLIAMENTARY" or "LOCAL ELECTIONS"...
I am convinced that this project can be a workable blueprint for
all European countries.

FIRST ROUND OF THE 2007 PRESIDENTIAL
This is an open
letter to all responsible – and potentially responsible – citizens of the

Elections - by daring at least

May I now ask you
to take a few minutes to read the attached Proposal (printable version),
and leave any comments or suggestions (and if possible a message of
support) through the contact form?
Incidentally, any distribution of
this proposal is not only authorised, but encouraged – and
