The Prime Minister Manuel Valls warned today the French and the sacrifices to rehabilitate the country will have to continue for years, in an interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo which makes the “man of the year”.
“I do not want to tell the French that within two to three years we’re done with the sacrifices,” said the Prime Minister born in Barcelona in the conservative newspaper which presents him as “the Spaniard who wants to change France”. “We have to make efforts for years for France to be stronger, so that its businesses more competitive and that the public sector more efficient, with less cost and less taxes,” he said in a long interview with three pages.
Valls said he hoped a return to growth in the coming months. “With more growth, there will of course more work and wages can be increased, said the Prime Minister. But the effort to achieve a more effective state, more strategic but with less cost, will continue. If in two or three years we have more growth and we stop our efforts to reduce public spending, we will lose what we have gained. “
” The French are ahead of their political leaders “
” I do not wonder every day if my policy is socialist but effective, “said the Prime Minister. “This is a plan for the next three years. The effort for 2015 consists of an adjustment of € 21,000 million at the state level, health, regions, departments and municipal councils. It is an effort that all public services, public administration, have done, “he detailed.
Manuel Valls was convinced that the French have understood the need for reform and the majority of the Socialist Party approval. “The French in general are ahead of their political leaders, regarding the reforms, changes and willingness to exercise, he says. The majority of militants, region presidents, mayors, the vast majority of representatives and senators approve socialist policy. Since I was Prime Minister we say “this law will not pass.” We spent two confidence motions, all budgets and even reform areas, “he said.
whether he sees himself as a candidate for the presidency of the Republic, Manuel Valls replied: “No. Moreover, as Prime Minister I can not talk about it (…) If the French who trust me because I work as prime minister, see El Mundo I speak of a another mission, they will withdraw their confidence in me. “
