Emmanuel Macron will answer questions on Sunday September 24, 2023 by Anne-Claire Coudray and Laurent Delahousselive from the Élysée, in the news of TF1 and of France 2. This interview will also be co-broadcast on BFM TV. What topics will he cover? Saturday September 23, 2023, Christophe Barbier, political columnist on BFM TV, summarized the main lines of speech of the Head of State. First subject he should tackle: ecological planning. “It’s an appointment that he has postponed several times, it must be a marker of his mandate. If it ‘flops’, if there is nothing in it, it will be a failure.” As a reminder, according to the site ecology.govthere ecological planning is an action plan for accelerate the ecological transition presented in broad terms on July 12, 2023 by Élisabeth Borne before the National Council for Ecological Transition (CNTE). Another theme normally covered is inflation. “I think that the French will be especially attentive to the subject of the cost of living, purchasing power. This is what makes the French suffer on a daily basis”specified the editorialist.
Why is Emmanuel Macron’s interview taking place now?
Adding: “Moreover, there is another function of this evening’s speech, which will be widely listened to, and that is to completely sidestep the senatorial elections which are being held at the moment and which will not be good for the majority .” It is in fact on Sunday September 24, 2023 that the new senators are elected. Renewed every three years, they will take up their position in the Senate on October 2, 2023. Finally, the question is also why Emmanuel Macron is speaking on this Sunday, September 24 precisely. “Why this timing, why this interview now?” asked journalist Perrine Storme. Quite simply “to take advantage of a successful week”, replied the editorialist. Over the past seven days, the president has received a visit from King Charles III, then from Pope Francis. “And, then, we are ahead of the start of the parliamentary term”. This will take place from Monday September 25, 2023 and will possibly be stormy, with “risks of motion of censure and 49.3”. According to Christophe Barbier, the president is therefore taking advantage of this brief period of calm to express himself.
