Chevènement, tipped to take the direction of the Foundation for Islam in France, has said on Tuesday in favor of a “freedom” held at the beach, but felt that the mayors are “founded” to ban burkini if ”necessity of public order.” “People are free to make their bathing costume or not. (…) My position is liberty except necessity of public order. When there is the possibility of clashes, as he was able to produce in Sisco Corsica, Mayor Sisco, as the mayor of Cannes, are entitled to make orders. It’s part of the powers of mayors who are responsible for the peace, “said the former Minister of the Interior on Europe 1.” Do not flatter the communitarianism (…). It takes more civic friendship, “he said.
The mayor PS Sisco (Haute-Corse) Ange Pierre Vivoni banned the wearing of Burkini after a brawl erupted Saturday while on the beach, witnesses, tourists taking pictures in several women who bathed in burkini. On July 28, the mayor Republicans (LR) of Cannes David Lisnard, had also made a similar decree followed on August 5 by the mayor (LR) of Villeneuve-Loubet (Alpes-Maritimes), Lionel Luca.
a “rating and stupid controversy”
Chevènement also deplored the “subordinate and stupid controversy” sparked by its board of “discretion” to Muslims. “We have asked Catholics, Jews, Protestants also to show some discretion because in the public space, it is the reasoned argument that wins,” he said. “All previous waves of immigration in France, Central Europe – Poles, Ukrainians, Russians, Armenians, Jews – or from South East Asia have made some efforts to adopt our customs. This same effort is required of all. Everyone must seek to integrate into French society. Integration is not a dirty word, it means access to social codes that allow the exercise of freedoms, “he said.
” The French identity is fluid, it is enriched by their contributions (of immigrants), but themselves, and everyone must make an effort so that, under the secular republic, whether civil peace prevails. ” To criticism about his possible at the head of the Foundation of the Islam of France, the former interior minister replied: “I am not a candidate, I’m available. I do not shirk me to this request. “
