One more snub. After several oppositions and the president of the Senate, Gérard Larcher, the elected officials also announced that they will not participate in the National Council for Refoundation (CNR).
“The framework of the CNR that is proposed to us does not seem to us adequate to evoke the challenges that are the responsibility of our communities”, justify François Sauvadet, president of the French Departments, Carole Delga, president of the French Regions, and David Lisnard, president of the Association of Mayors of France in a joint press release collected by France Info.
“I don’t know if it will work”
These politicians highlight “important problems that threaten the continuity of local public services and public investment”, at the level of local authorities. According to them, “it is through a dedicated and direct dialogue between the representatives of the communities, the executive and Parliament, that the issues that affect the daily life of the French and compromise the future of the country must be addressed.”.
The CNR will take place on September 8 at Marcoussis in Essonne. In an official letter, Emmanuel Macron asked François Bayrou, leader of the MoDem and High Commissioner for Planning, to pilot this political object, as he revealed. opinion this Thursday. In this same medium, the latter was not the most optimistic: “I don’t know if it will work or even if it can work,” said the former Minister of Justice in particular.
