François Bayrou. MAXPPP – MOHAMMED BADRA
Le président du MoDem et Haut commissaire au Plan François Bayrou a estimé dimanche 7 janvier qu'un changement était "nécessaire" au gouvernement français, alors que les rumeurs d'un remaniement imminent de l'équipe d'Elisabeth Borne allaient bon train.
The Prime Minister was received by Emmanuel Macron at the Elysée on Sunday evening, said the entourage of the Head of State, specifying that the two leaders had to "in particular& quot; discuss the cold snap of the coming days and the bad weather in Pas-de-Calais, where Elisabeth Borne plans to go on Tuesday. Rumors of a reshuffle have been going on for several days in France.
"I think a change is necessary", declared on BFMTV this close friend of Emmanuel Macron, whose party supports the presidential camp. "I think it's legitimate that there is a renewal."
"The challenge is to rebuild trust which has unfortunately disintegrated between the French and the State, between the French and themselves, and even between the French and the France", he estimated.
Appointed to Matignon 18 months ago, Elisabeth Borne is the third Prime Minister of Emmanuel Macron, in power since 2017 and re-elected in 2002. The former prefect allowed the ;#39;adoption of several controversial texts, including those on pension reform and immigration.
Denormandie "an estimable young man
She has repeatedly used article 49-3 of the Constitution to have budgetary texts adopted without a vote, in particular.
To the question of whether the current Minister of the Armed Forces, Sébastien Lecornu, or the former Minister of Agriculture Julien Denormandie could be appointed to Matignon, the centrist leader replied that he was "not a prime minister maker".
François Bayrou said that he knew "very, very little" Sébastien Lecornu, 37 years old, and described Julien Denormandie, 43 years old, as an "estimable young man". He spoke out for a tighter government.
"The messages from ministers contradict each other or step on each other's toes all the time,” he said. "We make too many laws", also considered the former candidate for the presidential election.
