From January 1, 2022, France will have to confirm the position of chair of the EU Council’s six-month cycle., And State President Emmanuel Macron, on May 7, 2017, seems determined to use this context to restart integration and discover true European sovereignty, in line with the policy he has always supported in recent years since the evening of victory. Beethoven’s Ode to Joy wanted to cross the Louvre courtyard on the night of the European anthem.

However, Macron wanted to keep his commitment, turning the presidency of the EU into a decisive moment in the end of his first term.

Marine Le Pen talked about provocation And announced that it would appeal to the State Council. Eric Zemmer Opposed the outrage, e la Gollista Valrie Pcresse (Perhaps the most dangerous adversary to Macron) condemned the revocation of the French identity.

The European flag disappeared yesterday: According to the schedule, Elysee, who spoke at the beginning, promises to be a few days under Arc de Triumph. Marine Le Pen and others cheered as they succeeded in repelling the enemy invasion. Macron faces the unpleasant consequences of his bold pro-European choice: Europe, which is most closely associated with the incumbent president, may be the co-victim of the Elysee campaign, rejected by many Frenchmen who will not vote for Macron (i.e., the majority, at least in the first round).
