Édouard Philippe, who is expected in Quebec, will not be present at the CNR

The former Prime Minister is represented by the Mayor of Albi in the National Council for Refoundation.

Édouard Philippe will travel to Quebec (Canada) from September 6th to 9th, which prevents him from attending the National Council for Refoundation (CNR). The former prime minister will be “accompanied by economic and port players from Le Havre”his entourage told Le Figaro on Thursday.

The president of the Horizons party will visit the ports of Montreal and Quebec before being received by the mayors of these two cities. The City Council of Le Havre will hold a conference in front of the students of Laval University and at the XVI. World Congress of the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC).

Édouard Philippe asked the mayor of Albi, Stéphanie Guiraud-Chaumeil, to represent him at the organized CNR 8 September in Marcoussis (Essonne). The National Council for Refoundation conceived by Emmanuel Macron should make it possible to launch a broad consultation with around forty qualified personalities. But the resistances – starting with President LR of the Senate Gérard Larcher– as well as trade unionists decided not to go there or to criticize him, considering that the CNR weakens Parliament.

“Bound to the parliamentary character of the Fifth Republic”

Édouard Philippe was also skeptical about the possibility of creating this new body. “I am attached to the parliamentary character of the Fifth Republic. Nothing can compete with the National Assembly and the Senate. It is these two chambers that discuss and vote on the law. It is a great responsibility that should not be taken lightly.he said to him Figaro last June. Adding in an ambivalent formulation: “It would be absurd to want to replace Parliament with anything else, and that’s obviously not the President’s aim.”.
