RESIGNATION MACRON. And if the head of the State took up all of the world short by announcing shortly his resignation ? The hypothesis would have been mentioned by Emmanuel Macron himself, according to Le Figaro. But the Palace denies…

The idea of a resignation of Emmanuel Macron, after the severe health crisis that has to pass through France, had been since that Thursday morning of speculation, after the publication of an article in le Figaro, citing a conference call with donors during which the head of State would have mentioned this option. But the rumor has turned short. The Elysée palace has decided to put an end to the speculation in the afternoon, letting it be known to the AFP that he denied the information of the daily. “The president of the Republic has never referred to his resignation,” said the presidency to the news agency, adding that Emmanuel Macron had “never participated in a video conference with donors”.

Le Figaro Magazine wrote yet this Thursday, June 11, that it was not excluded that the president is preparing a huge surprise in the next few weeks. The newspaper believed that Emmanuel Macron seemed prepared to announce his resignation, if necessary, to launch an all-new, unseen footage after the soap opera drama of the coronavirus. No question, of course, to withdraw from political life showed, however, The Figaro. It was primarily a matter for the head of State to resume the hand. The article, published on the website of the daily newspaper, indicated that the president had met, “here’s a fortnight”, the donors of his campaign in 2017, in London. It was clarified that the head of State had intervened, in video conferencing, for a few minutes. Emmanuel Macron was described as determined, the hypothesis of his resignation and the announcement of an early presidential election “within a few weeks or months to come”, having clearly been put on the table. And le Figaro noted that the president of the Republic had indicated at this meeting, now disproved, that it was “sure to win” a potential election “because there is no one in front”.

Already several statements shock during the crisis

If it is denied, the rumor of a resignation of Emmanuel Macron is not out of nowhere. From march 16, in his speech announcing the containment widespread in the country, Emmanuel Macron had sown the seed of disorder by declaring that he would draw “all the consequences” of this crisis once it is overcome. Promising to “reinvent” a month later, during his official speech before the nation, 13 April 2020, but he still had to play the card of renewal, suggesting that it was to be expected a little bit new and radical in the future, in its mode of governance. Full-health crisis, while the country was hard hit by the coronavirus, these messages had surprised, but the string seemed very big : the head of State is not the first to make sure that the full mandate, that the exercise of State or the confrontation with the country’s difficulties are forcing it to change. Words in the air so ?
