“No taboo” for Darmanin, who kicks off the discussions


Now, what future for Corsica? It is on this theme that Gérald Darmanin and the elected officials of the Island of Beauty met on Thursday. The Minister of the Interior has indeed kicked off a cycle of eight meetings on the future, including institutional, of Corsica, with a delegation of 20 elected officials from the island who came to Paris. This first meeting of the Strategic Committee on the future of Corsica, set up after the murder in prison of the Corsican independence activist and assassin of the prefect Erignac Yvan Colonna, set a timetable and a work program.

“There was a convergence on this agenda and on these themes. It is already very important. A government which has recalled that it is the red line, it is obviously Corsica without the Republic and not two types of citizens on the soil of the Republic, but that otherwise, obviously, no taboo was to be ruled out”, assured the Minister of the Interior.

The opening of discussions welcomed by Simeoni

And at the end of this meeting, Gilles Simeoni, President of the Executive Council of Corsica, welcomed the opening of these discussions on the future of the island. “The institutional question cannot be distinguished from economic, social and cultural questions. The institutional advances and the status of autonomy that we are calling for are also, in our opinion, the most effective response to deal with all the Corsican issues”, he reacted.

The next meeting will take place “September 16” and will be devoted to the “economic and social model” of the island and how to “diversify the Corsican economy”, he said. The second will be devoted to “financial speculation, town planning and housing” and the third, scheduled “before the end of 2022”, to “the Corsican language and culture”, according to Gérald Darmanin, who also announced that the report of the General Inspectorate of Justice on the death of Yvan Colonna will be returned next week to Elisabeth Borne.
