Legislative work

His victory was announced very little on Sunday evening when his opponents gave him an appointment to fight for the legislature on June 12 and 19. This “third round”, as the French say, usually confirms the outcome of the presidential election. But even though Emmanuel Macron remains a divisive figure and many voters voted for him, surprises are still possible. On the right (Eric Zemmour) and on the left (Jean-Luc Melenchon), calls have been made for a coalition to overthrow the majority and force coexistence, which will probably be quite a storm. His N Marche movement must win this election, otherwise the tenant of the Elysee Palace is in danger of living in difficult times.

Mr. Macron is already committed to multiplying wind turbines at sea, developing solar energy, creating 100% French green sectors or building new nuclear reactors, guaranteeing Russia’s independence from gas.

Although everyone agrees on the material, this important project is probably not just about making people happy. “It can go through actions that adhere to punitive ecology,” said Jean Petax, a political scientist who said he needed to find ways to approve the reforms, which were “painful”.

Wages, RSA (welfare), purchasing power, housing, rising gas prices, energy, cost of living, lark. “Immediately, he is eagerly awaiting the ground, he will have to make pledges, Oliver Ehl explained. However, France’s public debt is not in good condition and it will be complicated by the fact that we can not constantly borrow, especially as interest rates begin to rise. This will be another important challenge.”

Pension project

Mr. Macron made it one of the main activities of his program. Due to. The pension reform was one of the highlights of his first term, and he never saw it because he was cut off from his tracks due to the COVID-19 crisis.

This multiple project, among other things, will lead to the introduction of proportional representation in the legislative elections and the reduction of the number of Members of Parliament. “There were a lot of very ambitious things in his program and nothing happened,” said M.Me Powerful. There, I think it is necessary for the democratic prosperity of the country and to feel more represented in the French National Assembly, which really is not the case today. ⁇

Emmanuel Macron also referred to “meetings of citizens”, which make it possible for the French to participate in the drafting of certain laws. This new space for democratic expression, for example, could interfere with the context of the debate over assisted dying, which is still banned in France.

The site, however, the political scientist however is convinced of one thing: Emmanuel Macron of the second term is very active. “He’s more unfortunate, more offensive and more reformer than Macron in his first term. He’s going strong and fast, I’m sure.”
