Emmanuel Macron addresses his vision for the future of France


French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday addressed the elected members of the Assembly and Senate about his vision for the the future of France. This was the first time a French president has hosted his opening policy speech at the luxurious Palace of Versailles. Though he drew a lot of criticism from the French newspapers, his Vision is quite clear of what he wants.

Macron won the election with a majorityTELEMMGLPICT000133703525-large_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqA7N2CxnJWnYI3tCbVBgu9XR0USyrJzgvsVvXI3DQd4g of 308 seats out of 577 in his party’s. He promised for a total changed political reform by cutting the number of seats in both the houses of parliaments by a third. His vision as addressed by him is to cut short the total number of Assembly members to 385 from 577 and Senate members to 232 from 348. He also stated to put decision to the french people in a referendum if the parliament rejects his plans.

The most highlighted was his say on the state of emergency. France has been in the state of emergency since the Paris terror attack back in November 2015. It was an horrific incident that killed 130 people. Macron ensured that he will lift the state of emergency and also reestablish the freedom the French people enjoyed once. New laws would be enacted to fight against the terrorism. It would allow the French government to shut down places that promote extremism.

While speaking about the European Union, he said they will rise back. European Union was said to have lost its way post the recession that hit 10 years back. What the union wants is a pool of great leaders to work together towards its glory and he showed his priority on making sure that the union is back to what it used to be.
