“Holland wanted to keep, Valls was to be responsible to pass the constitutional revision time until the storm passes and prepare a real reshuffle. His departure makes the following very complicated. “The silence of the head of state gives a sign of the” stunning “that still prevails at the Elysee, in the words of a familiar palace.
Manuel Valls, by contrast, benefited yesterday from his vows to the press to boldly take the departure of his Justice Minister. “She will miss the government but consistency meant that from the time when there were disagreements, each draws conclusions,” he said.
“Resisting is from” Taubira launched before slamming the door of the government. The tenant Matignon replied bluntly: “Resist today, it is not proclaimed, it is not making speeches, is to confront the country’s reality. “For good measure, and show that he is the boss, the Prime Minister also gave a slap to his Economy Minister, Emmanuel Macron, without naming him:” You must set aside a certain narcissism or egocentrism to work in the general interest. “
Right in his boots, Valls does not intend to deviate from its liberal line on the economy – he wants to continue to” unlock “- and safe:” The past year marked a tipping deep [. ..], we have peace and yet we are at war. “He added:” In such a context, it is the future of France that concerns me, not the future of the left. “The formula could not be clearer.
At the Elysee, Hollande knows he can not stay long grounded arms. The timing of the renewal of the members of the Constitutional Council, and the expected appointment of Laurent Fabius in his presidency, requires it to revise again around mid-February. “He’ll have to shoot down his game, considers one of his friends: is it merely a change minimally, it weakens 2017.” After the departure of the “icon” Taubira, Holland is in the inability to expand its ministerial team to the left and environmentalists. So he looks for another way to hit the opinion, taking into respect his prime minister. For example by installing Macron at the head of a large Ministry of Economy at Bercy
