The opportunity to clarify the main lines of its policy

The entourage of the president had already announced that he would speak on National Day, "probably in the context of an interview on television", reviving a presidential tradition that he had suppressed.

This interview will be an opportunity to clarify the main lines of its policy, two years from the presidential election in 2022, and to come back to the health crisis linked to the coronavirus and its consequences on the country. The new Prime Minister Jean Castex will make his declaration of general policy before the National Assembly the next day, July 15.
