Objective, to reconnect with the French. After the promulgation of the pension reform, Emmanuel Macron addresses the French, Monday, April 17 at 20 p.m., to try to revive his five-year term in an atmosphere of persistent social and political crisis.

The Head of State had lunch with Elisabeth Borne, then received the leaders of his camp and the main ministers, including those of the Economy, Bruno Le Maire, the Interior, Gérald Darmanin or the Ecological Transition, Christophe Béchu, for final consultations before his solemn speech and without contradictors.

"I am here because I think I am useful to my country," the Prime Minister told France 2 and LCP before this presidential meeting, assuring that she belongs to an "atypical category" devoid of personal ambitions.

At the Elysee, it is recognized that these three months of arm wrestling leave "anger in the heads and in the hearts", and it is assured that Emmanuel Macron will take it into account. But above all he wants to "restore overall coherence to his action", "draw perspectives for the weeks and months to come" and "outline the priority projects", continues his entourage. With a confirmed "course": republican order, full employment and reindustrialization, daily progress around education, health and ecology.
