Macron charges Borne with new consultations to form a “government of action” – RT in French

Emmanuel Macron “confirmed” his confidence in Elisabeth Borne and instructed the Prime Minister to conduct new consultations with parliamentary groups in order to form a “government of action” for the beginning of July. Without the RN or LFI.

Seeing both “the refusals and the availability” which were expressed during the first exchanges with the political forces, Emmanuel Macron decided to “confirm [sa] confidence in Elisabeth Borne”, as he explained in an interview with AFP on June 25.

The President of the Republic, who spoke with the head of government, announced that he had instructed her next week to sound out the political groups in the National Assembly on a “government agreement”, their participation even to a government, their position on a vote of confidence in Elisabeth Borne on July 5, and also on the vote on the state budget scheduled for next fall.

“On my return from the G7 and NATO, the Prime Minister will submit to me proposals for a roadmap for the government of France over the coming months and years, and also for the composition of a new government of action in the service of France that we will put in place in the first days of July”, he added.

This government could be joined by representatives of political forces ready to cooperate with the majority.

“I have confidence in our collective ability to make it happen. I have confidence in the ability of the Prime Minister to make them emerge. I have confidence in the spirit of responsibility of the government forces”, assured the Head of State.

Resuming the floor between two stages of his diplomatic marathon which takes him to Germany on Sunday for the G7 and then to Madrid on June 28 for the NATO summit, Emmanuel Macron specifies that “the basis of these discussions” with the Prime Minister will be the “framework of the presidential project and that of the presidential majority which could be amended or enriched”, and this, with the announced objective of increasing “neither taxes nor the debt”.

Macron has not given up on pension reform

Despite his setback in the legislative elections, Emmanuel Macron has not given up on his pension reform aimed at “working longer as all our neighbors do, taking into account working conditions and therefore the rules of hardship, taking into account long careers.

It is, with the reform towards full employment, “the two major reforms that we must carry out in consultation, without totems or taboos, but keeping a course of ambition”. The head of state, looking for reinforcements after losing the absolute majority in the Assembly, however ruled out the possibility of an agreement with the RN and LFI.

The possible allies, “it will be communists in the LR. The French have granted legitimacy to the RN and LFI deputies and these parties have a political formation. I do not confuse the extremes but by their expression, their positioning – I have always been clear on this subject – these formations do not register as government parties”.
