The consultations are going well. During a lunch at the Elysée palace on Tuesday, in the presence of Emmanuel Macron, and of many of his advisors, as well as the president of the Senate Gérard Larcher and the whole of the group presidents of the upper House, various subjects are invited to the menu of discussions : the decentralization and devolution, the place of the Parliament, the democratic process, the referendum on the Convention's proposals, citizens, Europe... And the electoral calendar.
Asked about the ballots for the next two years, the head of the State - who took notes - once again linked this issue to the economic recovery. "The stimulus package cannot go through the regions and the departments if we stick to the electoral timetable", he warned, according to several participants contacted by Le Figaro. "He confirmed that, if the departments and the regions wanted to take a full part in the great plan of revival that he hopes for France (...), we could not mix that great stimulus plan that would be carried by the regions and departments with the elections", added the boss of the socialist group, Patrick Kanner, on Public Senate.about Macron echo those he already held the last week
In the clear, "or Emmanuel Macron believes that it will not comply with the electoral calendar and that the democratic life is an obstacle, it bypasses the regions," said one of the guests around the table. Another participant believes that, even if Emmanuel Macron is not necessarily favourable to the idea of amending the electoral calendar, it considers that the question arises, to the extent that it is necessary to rely on the regions to overcome the crisis. In his eyes, the regional campaign would, in fact, a pause, as the regional executive would then be more absorbed by their election by the follow-up of cases.
The words of Emmanuel Macron have been even more scrutinized than they recall those he has held, in the presence of the president of the Regions of France, Renaud Muselier, Monday, June 15. At this time, as had been revealed to Le Figaro , the head of the State was clearly questioned the appropriateness of amending the electoral calendar.
