Macron under the “silence in the ranks”

The French press has criticized Friday the communication locked the new president and Emmanuel Macron. It is estimated that this will not prevent “clashes” within the new government team.

Several companies of journalists protested on Thursday, in an open letter, against the decision of the Elysée to pick the journalists allowed to accompany the head of State Friday in Mali. “The communication from the Elysée is very locked down to avoid any faux pas before the parliamentary elections are crucial,” says the economic newspaper Les Echos.

Every minister is therefore requested to implement the roadmap which was assigned to it, observing strict rules of confidentiality, discipline and solidarity,” says The Figaro, seeing it as a “vital minimum to restore a presidential authority reduced to smithereens in recent years”.

“In march (to the legislature), but silence in the ranks”, tackle Humanity: “that no head shall not exceed, that no false note will not disturb the partition, nothing seemed to upset him a little bit about the way absolutist that intends to give the lucky recipient of his reign,” adds the daily communist.


According to The World, the new president, “continued its momentum” of the campaign around the triptych “transgression renewal expertise: when you have found the martingale winning, it would be absurd to change”.

Certainly, “this five year period opens with the reign of a communication ultra controlled”, note Release. But the “first dish served at the table of the Council of ministers” is “a plate of snakes”, adds the editorial director of Libération, Laurent Joffrin in his editorial. “The ones that the candidates from elsewhere are forced to swallow if they want to adopt the plan macronien”.

“Notre-Dame-des-Landes, Aacc, CSG…”: Release made the list of “points of friction () should not be missed in the new government”. Hence the title: “Clash in stock at the Elysée”. (tty/nxp)
