Continued unrest in France has weakened Macron
The Washington Times pointed to the desperation of the French president to control the current unrest in the country following the murder of a 17-year-old teenager and wrote that recent developments have weakened Emmanuel Macron.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): The American newspaper "Washington Times" in an analysis pointed to the recent crisis in France following the murder of a 17-year-old teenager by a police officer of this country and wrote that the crisis of the murder of a French teenager weakens Emmanuel Macron.
In the introduction of this report, Macron's managerial weakness is pointed out and it is stated that even in normal circumstances, Emmanuel Macron needs the help of his allies to govern France.
The newspaper continues that the French president has worked with the traditional right to get things done, and the center-left has helped him achieve other things. France's current challenge is greater than any that a French president has faced in more than two decades.
The Washington Times added that Macron must convince politicians from across the French National Assembly to support him even on small domestic projects.
This report then pointed to the recent unrest in France and wrote that it has become almost impossible for Macron to rule a country that is already polarized; because a suburban police officer stopped a yellow Mercedes-Benz and fatally shot the 17-year-old driver in the chest and started 6 days of chaos throughout the country.
Last year, in the second round of the elections, Macron defeated Marine Le Pen, the leader of the French far-right party, and succeeded in winning a second five-year term as president, but two months later, his centrist Renaissance party won the majority. He lost the parliament. Marine Le Pen's "National Community" party won an unprecedented number of parliamentary seats.
The Washington Times then went on to say that despite his narrow victory over Le Pen, Macron had big ambitions. His first big goal was to increase the retirement age from 62 to 64, which he had to do through the parliament. He also hoped to re-industrialize France, improve working conditions, and finalize a new immigration bill. Abroad, Macron worked for European sovereignty and independence in the fields of economy, energy and defense issues.
This American newspaper then returned to the recent French crisis by raising these issues and wrote that last week Macron had to leave his trip to attend the European meeting in Brussels halfway to hold an urgent meeting with his government regarding the French crisis. .
Also this week, Macron, at the last minute, delayed the trip to Germany that was planned to show the strength of bilateral friendship despite differences in energy, defense, economic and other issues.
The Washington Times explained that the changes in Macron's agenda actually reflected another awkward situation for the French leader in the past three months, when Britain's King Charles III's visit to France was delayed by violent protests against pension reforms.
German Chancellor Olaf Schultz has said that he is watching the situation in France with concern.
