Edouard Philippe is not known for his tendencies of green. Emmanuel Macron will yet have to deal between the aspirations outputs of the vote and a Prime minister who comes out even stronger for municipal elections.
In le Havre on Sunday evening, Edouard Philippe and his list were elected widely, with 58,83 % of the vote. Will he take his chair of mayor in the next few days ? Although a position of strength, it was not quite the card in his hand. It is the head of State, that Edouard Philippe meeting head-to-head this Monday morning, to decide on the reshuffle is announced for soon.

This popularity has not stopped rising since the beginning of the crisis of the coronavirus, with a gain of 13 points in three months.

It does not govern (always) with surveys, but Emmanuel Macron is well in the face of a puzzle. The French would not necessarily mean that it “removes” the prime minister, Edouard Philippe. It must at the same time engage in a social and ecological change clear, as claimed in the ballot boxes on Sunday evening. That is to say, tip the balance LREM on his left side.
