Chantal Jouanno will not leave his post. The revelation of his monthly salary of 14 666 euros gross forced him to withdraw from the organization of the great national debate wanted by Emmanuel Macron but the president of the CNDP does not intend to resign, despite the pressures of the executive.

Power wants her skin, but Chantal Jouanno refuses to give in to pressure. She has already withdrawn from the organization of the great national debate, she does not want to leave her position of president of the National Debate Commission (CNDP). My resignation " would be incomprehensible to the launch of a great debate, " she said Friday in the columns of Figaro .

Chantal Jouanno stands up and responds to attacks. It deems " unworthy " calls for resignation launched by the spokesman of the government. Thursday, Benjamin Griveaux had invited the president of the CNDP to " learn the lessons " of its decision, described as " incomprehensible " to exclude the great national debate. It is " an amazing challenge to the independence of our authority, " Chantal Jouanno annoys in Le Figaro , targeting at the same time Edouard Phillipe. The Prime Minister on Wednesday had " regretted " his departure " because, in the context we live in, those who serve and who love the state have engaged in a form of mobilization rather than remoteness ".

While the debate wanted by Emmanuel Macron to get out of the crisis of the "yellow vests" is struggling to organize, the withdrawal of Chantal Jouanno greatly complicates the task of the government seeking him for two days one or more substitute (s) ) emergency. The practical details of the organization of the debate will be announced by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe on Monday, ie ... the day before the launch of this consultation which will take place on the whole territory and which is planned to last two months. For the occasion, Emmanuel Macron will go on Tuesday to Bourgtheroulde in the Eure.
