– The beginning of the war between Emmanuel Macron and the opposition
Emmanuel Macron, who does not have a majority in parliament, wants to know how far the opposition is “ready to go” to “make compromises.”
The opposition returned the ballot to Emmanuel Macron’s court on Thursday, rejecting the coalition government’s idea, while seeking to give parliament its full role in examining the speeches “on a case-by-case basis.”
“He’s against the wall, not us (…) If he persists in his plan, he has no absolute majority, he’s stuck, he’s the one who will block France,” briefly Nupes-PS Valérie Rabault said. Before heading to a European summit in Brussels on Thursday, the head of state, who won a relatively large majority, rejected the National Trade Union Government’s hypothesis in front of 15.5 million viewers on Wednesday evening.
Emmanuel Macron We promise the Left News Coalition, the National Rally and the Republicans to “build compromises” to “say with complete transparency how far they are prepared to go”: “Enter into a coalition of government and action (or) vote in some speeches, our budget.”
No final warning
Despite his call for a short-term response, when he returned from Brussels on Friday afternoon, government spokeswoman Olivia Gregor promised he had not “set a 48-hour final warning.”
Prime Minister Elizabeth Bourne told the LCI that “since we have integrated their proposals, we are very confident that we will be able to find voting representatives in the speeches.” “No one has a monopoly on good ideas. Conversation and listening make it possible to develop good plans. This should be an opportunity for France, “he added.
Nupes wants to see “very concrete things”, for example, in Emmanuel Macron’s The Smic project for 1500 euros, while Deputy Nupes-EELV Julien Bayou promises ecological proposals on behalf of the United Left.
On the right, the LR “denies” any coalition agreement that would destroy everyone’s political “beliefs”. “So it will be up to us on a case-by-case basis” reiterated the chairmanship of the LR committee in Senate Bruno Retailleau, on the vote on the texts in Parliament.
Republicans want to propose measures next week, recalling their group’s new chairman, Olivier Marleix, who refused to “blank check” the head of state. Marine Le Pen, who was elected as the sole candidate on Thursday as chairman of a strong RN committee of 89 delegates, pledged to “study the texts in light of the interests of the French and France.”
But in the Macronist ranks, we did not despair of achieving the expansion of the majority. Elizabeth Bourne began speaking with leaders of the newly elected parliamentary committees at the Palais Bourbon on Thursday.
Discussions continue on Friday. Meanwhile, he promised not to ask questions about his future in Matignon, while several opposition figures have called for his resignation. Asked if the LCI was going to take on its responsibilities during the July 5 public policy declaration, he said “this matter has not been decided yet.”
“New election accidents”
Gilles Boyer, a close associate of oudouard Philippe and a founding member of Horizons, confirmed that the majority coalition continues to seek to form an “alliance” with specific LRs, PSs or EELVs. Predict that the agreement and then create a government agreement, “several days, weeks or even months to achieve this”.
But another Macronist ally, Franுவாois Beyro (MoDem), warns that the idea of ”continuing business as usual” (note: business as usual) is “impossible enough to recreate a majority not provided by the electorate”. Indicates the risk of “new election accidents”.
The “conversation” with the opposition was “engaged for several days, perhaps several weeks,” government spokeswoman Olivia Gregoire assured, adding that the head of state would “see and like the leaders of the political forces.” Talk to them and ask. “
