Macrons Cabinet: New talent search in vain

The new Ministerial team, which was presented on Monday evening in the courtyard of the Elysée Palace, does not speak for new bravery in France. President Emmanuel Macron on the "new way" that he wants to ride in his own words, dam, primarily on tried-and-true politicians. The most important new addition to the Ministry of the environment, the 45-year-old former Green Barbara Pompili, collected as state Secretary for biodiversity between 2016 and 2017 already experience at the Cabinet table. As a member of Parliament, she has been defended most recently in the President's home town of Amiens, the "green" identity of the government party La République en marche.

The Minister of economy and Finance receives the title of Minister for reconstruction. First conflicts are already, because Macron intends to implement 146 environmental policy proposals of the so-called citizens ' Convention, which were perceived by companies as anti-competitive.

The new Prime Minister, Jean Castex has not added to the levity, with the Macron for the German-French relations with the competent secretaries of State for Europe, substitutes for policy. The successor to Amélie de Montchalin, which was followed Nathalie Loiseau, have not yet been announced. The 35-year-old woman is on your new Post now for the Reform of the state service in charge. The frequent change of personnel in the Department of European Affairs, in Paris, as a result that a continuous and trusting cooperation with the German side is complicated. But obviously the fact that with the Aachen Treaty, the expectations of cooperation have increased, played a role in Paris.

In the Ministry of the interior, the former budget Minister Gérald Darmanin moves for Christophe Castaner, who was to hold been. The 37-year-old former "Sarkozy-man" has just been with more than 60 percent of the vote for mayor of his home town of Tourcoing chosen. To him a criminal case for sexual harassment threatens also. The investigations have been resumed. But, obviously, former President Nicolas Sarkozy, it was important to know at the start of his first trial in October, a loyal man in the interior Ministry.

Macron gets strengthened Council in the case of Sarkozy. This might also be the reason why the famous criminal lawyer Eric Dupond-Moretti, the new justice Minister. The 59-year-old Dupond-Moretti has obtained before court a record number of acquittals. The "Wüterich from the North", as Dupond-Moretti is called, has defended the charges of corruption and tax evasion, accused the mayor of Levallois, Patrick Balkany,.

Before the new investigative Committee of the Covid-19-crisis management, they did not spare criticism of the government.

from Now on, you will sit with the health Minister Olivier Véran in a Cabinet table. The Minister of education, Jean Blanquer remains at his Post. What is striking is that the new Prime Minister is not able to attract talents from the Left. The 63-year-old Alsatian, a regional politician Brigitte Klinkert, who had coordinated during the health crisis, the consumption of French Covid-19-patients in German hospitals, moved to the Cabinet table, and will be for integration into professional life is responsible. The socialist group Chairman Valérie Rabault said she had rejected an offer. This Tuesday the new government is to come for the first Time a Cabinet meeting at the Elysee Palace together.
