“The first weeks of our action must be devoted to responding to the emergencies of the French,” pleaded the Prime Minister after a two-hour meeting at Matignon with the entire government.
Taking office in mid-May in a context of high inflation, Ms Borne has set three priorities, starting with purchasing power, which will give rise to measures as soon as parliamentary work resumes after the legislative elections (June 12 and 19 ).
“We agreed that there should be neither forgotten nor blind spots. In addition to retirees, employees, the self-employed, public officials, I asked my ministers to pay particular attention to students”, added underlined Ms. Borne in front of the press.
While hospitals are facing a shortage of staff, Ms. Borne assured that she had asked the “ministers concerned” to “make proposals very quickly to take effective measures for the summer”.
Finally, the head of government said she wanted to carry out the “construction site” of ecological planning “at a rapid pace”, calling on all the ministries to “mobilize” and “participate”.
“But these emergency projects obviously do not exhaust the action of the government”, noted the Prime Minister, who gave “three watchwords: speed, efficiency and results”.
In order to follow up on these roadmaps, Ms. Borne announced that a government seminar would take place “before the end of June” around Emmanuel Macron. And that she herself would bring together the ministers “in the same format” every month at Matignon.
