Valérie Pécresse, LR candidate for the presidential election and president of the Île-de-France region, was the guest at 7:50 a.m. and reacted to Emmanuel Macron’s speech yesterday, in front of the European Parliament.

Emmanuel Macron spoke on Europe yesterday, in front of the European Parliament. “I believe that Emmanuel Macron’s speech disappointed many Europeans” says Valérie Pécresse. “They had the feeling of a diversion of the French presidency of the European Union for the benefit of a presidential campaign.

The president was jostled by the opposition, French, and besides many MEPs left during the speech given the turn of the sequence.

"Its objective is to oppose the populists to the progressives in order to raise the populists. Emmanuel Macron's speech is disconnected from the reality of Europe. Basically, the speech was not up to the challenges. There was nothing on European energy policy or border control"Valérie Pécresse denounces lyrics"hollow".

"Emmanuel Macron is doing the same thing in Europe as he is doing in France, thundering declarations which tense up, which divide and which cause this to block the advance of a European defense."

In his speech, Emmanuel Macron explained that he wanted to include the right to abortion in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. Valérie Pécresse says she is in favor but according to the presidential candidate, it is necessary "convince people", because "some countries today are not in favor of it".

"Emmanuel Macron knows very well that his proposal will remain a dead letter, he will never have unanimity on this proposal so it is essentially a proposal of internal policy to say to the French, look, I defend abortion".

Also asked about the new teachers' strike, candidate LR said she understood "the exasperation of the educational community as a whole and the parents." "We put in an untenable protocol, we did not consult them and I had proposed to delay the start of the school year by a week. We would have listened to the opposition once (…), we would not be there.
