Updated at 4:31 pm yesterday.
His compromise proposal, made in this eight-minute televised speech from Elysee Palace, his first direct response since Sunday, was received warmly by the opposition, although although the head of state was thought to be a national union government, his hypothesis was tested with many leaders who received it on Tuesday and Wednesday, “not justified to this day.” .
“No political force today makes laws alone,” declared the President of the Republic, “a new fact.” Therefore, “we must learn to govern differently and make laws”, he used the term “compromise” many times.
“I have heard and I am determined to take into account the desire for change that the country clearly seeks,” said Emmanuel Macron. “We have to build compromises, enrichments, amendments, but with full transparency, I mean openly, longing for unity and action for the country,” he explained.
From the New People’s Ecological and Social Union (NUPs) to the National Rally (RN) through Les Republicans (LR), “Tell me in full transparency how far they are ready to go.” , And in the short term: “It is necessary to clarify the share of responsibility and cooperation that the various structures of the National Assembly are prepared to take in the coming days: to enter into a coalition of government and action (or) adhere to the vote on certain lessons in our budget.”
He gave them 48 hours: When they returned from the European summit in Brussels on Thursday and Friday, he said, “We will begin to work out this method and this new configuration,” which went beyond the summit in the diplomatic marathon on Thursday. , Will also take him to the NATO Summit and the G7 Summit.
“Never lose the coherence of the project”
Legislative elections also “made the majority of presidents the first force,” he said. Macron recalls being warned about his determination to “never lose the coherence of the project you chose last April” when he was re-elected.
Emmanuel Macron further affirmed, “By this summer”, it is necessary to adopt a law for purchasing power and to better pay for work, first decisions to go into full employment, strong choices on energy and environment, measures for our health, whether it is our hospital or an epidemic. ”.
United Left leader Jean-Luc Melenchon immediately responded with skepticism: “It is useless to overrule the vote by filling it with all sorts of observations and appeals.” The former candidate of La France Insomnia (LFI) for the presidential election is now expected to be “executive weak, but the National Assembly is strong in all the legitimacy of its recent elections”.
He called on Prime Minister Elizabeth Bourne to resign, saying she did not believe the opposition would respect the lessons learned.
RN President and Marine Le Pen Lieutenant Jordan Bardella noted: “This is the first time that Emmanuel Macron’s arrogance has slowed down a bit: this change came from the people who made him president of the minority.”
He was in agreement: “Our powerful group in the Assembly is firm but constructive with a single compass of French and French interests.”
“His speech on the method was aimed at evading his responsibility and not changing anything from his project,” communist Fabian Roussell declined, but Socialist Oliver Faure resolved: “No, there is no need to answer him until the political structures are ‘where’ to go to give him a blank check. Is ready.
On the right, the new leader of the LR deputies, Alain Marlix, also turned down a “blank check, over an obscure project”. He assured that their team will make proposals on purchasing power next week.
Environmentalist leader Julian Bayou confirmed the LCI “fuzzy” speech. “The president has said he wants to take action on the climate. We do not trust him,” he said, adding that Knoops would make proposals on the issue.
As for Elizabeth Bourne, she spoke to a majority of delegates gathered in Palais Bourbon: “The situation under V is unprecedented.E The Republic and we must face it ”. This situation, according to the Prime Minister, requires two requirements: “beyond our common frameworks” and to preserve the unity of the macronists.
EELV National Secretary Julian Bayou, Deputy LFI Adrian Quatness and Horizons Party boss Edward Philippe received Emmanuel Macron to complete his round of political powers on Wednesday. On Tuesday he received Christian Jacob (LR), Oliver Four (PS), Franకోois Borough (MoDem) and Marine Le Pen (RN).
According to an Elabe poll published Wednesday for BFMTV / L’Express, 71% of French people believe that the lack of an absolute majority in the Assembly for the President of the Republic is a good thing for democracy and debate. 44% of them prefer negotiations according to the bills and only 19% are in favor of a national unity government. Finally, 17% want a coalition agreement between the majority and one or more opposition camps.
Crisis and doubts do not leave the majority. Fran కాలంois Borough suggested that the Prime Minister should be replaced, “long as the Prime Minister or Prime Minister wants to be political, we do not have the notion that this is the technology that governs the country.”
Elizabeth Bourne will receive chairs of assembly groups next week, a way to show executives that she will continue in office for the time being, even if her situation seems dangerous.
