The resignation of Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and the appointment of Jean Castex tacitly opens the electoral campaign for President Emmanuel Macron which effectively ends of the old world, general interest and ushers in personal ambition.

If the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron had wanted, officially at least, to end his five-year term, it is a safe bet that the tenant of the Elysée Palace would not have done otherwise. By appointing Jean Castex, a high-ranking official and an expert on the machinery of the State, the President of the Republic clearly assumes his choices for the future: to expedite current affairs and the reforms under way, however difficult they may be, and to devote himself to his re-election.

The parenthesis of Father of the Nation in which Emmanuel Macron had tried to slip, without success, unscrewing in the polls for the benefit of Edouard Philippe then Prime Minister, during the confinement will have had only one time.

For President Macron, the time has come to reinvest the clothes of the conqueror because power and its conquest are not satisfied with sweetness. However, once again, the return to civilian life of Edouard Philippe, newly elected mayor of Le Havre, questions the ability to speed up political time.

Role and Sacrifice

By closing Act I of his mandate by the resignation of the Government of Edouard Philippe and by opening the second by the appointment of Jean Castex, Emmanuel Macron presided over a function that had been criticized for his omnipotence.

It is in no way insulting to assert, the facts confirm it, that the new Prime Minister will have only one of the most minor roles to end on the evening of the second round of the presidential election.

In fact, the situation which prevails today tends, and this is certainly what is most worrying, to evade, even to despoil, the French of a second part of active and efficient mandate because placed in the shade of the 2022 election. The electoral highway which opens before the President of the Republic, and which he intends to take, will have only one purpose: to arrive first.

However, the crisis of representative democracy that we mentioned a few days ago also goes through this tendency, which has become a habit, for tenants of the Elysée Palace to sacrifice the last years of their mandate for the benefit of their re-election.

And therefore, to question the meaning that the latter confer on the general interest and on the superior interest of the nation, both of which compete with personal ambition itself driven by taste and the lure of power.

Campaign and Ambition

Some would have thought, however, that the President would wait until September to open the fires of the campaign, but the Covid-19 pandemic has upset a private calendar of two and a half months of confinement during which time has stood still. suddenly stopped.

So, in fine, does this mean that President Macron will have effectively ruled for three years to devote the last two years of his mandate to a potential re-election, entrusting the keys of the country to a high official experienced in the mysteries of the state?

Everyone is free to think and say it. But it does not take a great political strategist to draw the contours of the ambition of the President of the Republic, he who wanted since his election to break with the old world, employs, not without a certain awkwardness, methods that made it the good days.
