What to remember from Emmanuel Macron’s speech “a law for purchasing power and for work to pay better”
Emmanuel Macron announced that, “from this summer”, it will be necessary to provide “a law for purchasing power and for work to pay better, the first decisions to move towards full employment, strong choices on energy and climate, emergency measures for our health, whether it is our hospital or the epidemic”.
Emmanuel Macron spoke for the first time since the second round of the legislative elections, during a televised address, without major announcement.
The head of state acknowledged that the majority he had obtained on Sunday was “relative” and assured to be aware of the “fractures” that appeared during these elections.
He also called on the political class to “legislate differently” and make “compromises”. “I hear and am determined to take charge of the will for change that the country has clearly expressed” because “it is my role as guarantor of our institutions,” said the President of the Republic during this speech of less than 10 minutes.
