The Head of State decided to instruct Richard Ferrand, Gérard Larcher and Patrick Bernasconi, to give him a diagnosis of the end of the crisis by the end of June.
Emmanuel Macron, who has promised to “reinvent himself”, will intensify his consultations in order to “make proposals to the French” between the second round of municipal June 28 and July 14, said the Elysee Palace after a meeting with the presidents of the three chambers (Senate, Assembly, EESC).
In this context, the Head of State decided to instruct Richard Ferrand (Assembly), Gérard Larcher (Senate) and Patrick Bernasconi (Economic, Social and Environmental Council) to give him a diagnosis of the end of the crisis by the end of June.
He will send them a letter to define this “informal mission”, which will focus on “the major post-crisis subjects (social, political, economic organization) and the transitions to be carried out in the post-Covid period, in a spirit of national harmony, “said the Elysee.
A “strong voice”
At the beginning of July will see the culmination of several works, such as those of the Citizen’s Convention on the climate and the Ségur de la Santé, which will participate in the elaboration of the “specifications to build the after” and “materialize the invitation of the president to reinvent himself, to make proposals to the French “after the municipal elections,” concluded the Elysée. Among several options, mention is made of a “strong voice” from the president. These measures could allow him to launch a new phase of the quinquennium, two years before the presidential election of 2022.
Emmanuel Macron had called, during his address on April 13, to “reinvent ourselves, me first”, in particular by going “off the beaten track” and “ideologies” with the coronavirus crisis.
During the health crisis, Emmanuel Macron already received Gérard Larcher and Richard Ferrand in early April. He met Tuesday with Patrick Bernasconi, the third assembly of the Republic which currently organizes the Citizens Convention on the climate.
Emmanuel Macron is also scheduled to meet with trade union organizations on Thursday, mainly to discuss the social management of the crisis such as short-time working and training.
