This is an exception that surprised, or even unworthy. Elected in the first round of the municipal elections in the city of Tourcoing, Gérald Darmanin will be able to remain his position as a minister of the Action and of the public Accounts. The elect of the North seems to ignore the setpoint compiled by Emmanuel Macron before the election in the month of march. It was stated that a minister elected mayor should automatically resign from the government. Gérald Darmanin would he have benefited from a preferential treatment? He explained Sunday to the "Grand Jury RTL-LCI-Le Figaro". "I have not had a temporary derogation. I went to see the president of the Republic and the prime minister, asking for the opportunity to exercise my mandate as mayor. They to me have allowed for a time," he said. Behind the scenes, some of the blow that the situation could evolve in the prospect of a reshuffle this summer.Allowances for mayors returned to the SPA
Gérald Darmanin ensures, however, that he has "not lied to the voters". "I told them :" I think it is important that there be someone who weighs at national level in your commune", a bit like Borloo in Valenciennes, because Tourcoing is a city that suffers," explained the minister. If it does not consider that it "rush back" on non-cumulation of mandates, Gérald Darmanin believes that there was yet good. "I tend to think that this is also the salt of a politician, it is to be able to live among his fellow citizens, not to all be parisian, to be able to make voice difficult... as mayor, I continue to do sessions. And I think that for these units, I sometimes learn more than a note of Bercy", he slipped. The minister has certified that he reverserait allowances of the mayors to the SPA for not to combine with those which he already receives as a member of the government.read also : Coronaviruses : follow the situation live
making the choice to stay in Bercy, Gérald Darmanin is therefore preparing to manage the heavy economic crisis to come. To cope, the minister of the Action and of the public accounts has already announced the"annulment" of three billion euros in charges in the sectors such as tourism, culture, sport... For other companies, the "not exempt" and in trouble, he indicated that they could spread out their expenses over 36 months. In these circumstances, Gérald Darmanin warns that the debt will be "without a doubt" above 115% of GDP at the end of the year.The government has "broken the piggy bank"
"In this crisis, there is a kind of effect chisel : you spend more and you have less tax revenue. We have chosen the debt against the bankrupt which would have been disastrous," explained the minister who ensures that the government has "broken the piggy bank". But then how to repay? By "the way that the president of the Republic has chosen for the past three years : the trust of economic actors", a summary Gérald Darmanin. "Growth creates the wealth that allows you to repay the debt", he stressed.
at the same time, the former close to Nicolas Sarkozy wanted to share his optimism by rejecting any idea of "bankruptcy of the state" in the face of this massive debt. "We are a serious government. We can make savings and reforms, which sometimes made us unpopular, are necessary. In time of peace, we have made savings, and thanks to these savings and these efforts, we can borrow in time of war on the financial markets and at rates negative", he assured.
Gérald Darmanin took the opportunity to respond to the opposition, mainly the left one, which called for the reinstatement of the tax on wealth (ISF) - removed part at the beginning of the quinquennium of Emmanuel Macron - or the increase in wages to support the economic recovery. The macroniste from LR sees it as an "ideology of tax". According to him, such actions are "killing the job". "And all kills must be rejected", he swept.The editorial team conseilleCoronavirus : the government is "reasonably optimistic" about the evolution of the épidémieSujetsGérald DarmaninCoronavirusconfinementdéconfinement81 commentairesHervé Blouinle 24/05/2020 at 19:55
The President has made a strict rule and he's right : a single man may not have the time to manage a Ministry essential and a large city.
We are not authorized to comment on the excellent decision he has taken keeping Darmanin : a man who manages the public deficit may also manage a city disaster. That the poor are silent : we are lucky to have chosen a President as consistent.
I am in awe of these heroes, political officials of all edges besides... they give background, not to mention for their mandates, and can still manage to be a ministry or a city and have a family life, business, manage, read, write often, travel a lot... for me , outside the block of our economy ... I am a head of company (hotel) and no I can't... I work 12 hours a day and I'm tired... really they are my heros !!! I am for the cumulation, Mps, and why oas Senator e-time... Mayors, Ministers, chairman of council, etc etc... not the limit.. and one should also impose the reelir life because these are all super-heroes,... and all super fair commercial, super dedicated to our happiness and our Country... and I actually like...Hervé Blouinle 24/05/2020 19:48
