The government reshuffle was greeted on Monday by a barrage from the side of rebellious France while the RN accused Emmanuel Macron of ignoring “once again” the result of the legislative elections.
A “macronie at a standstill” for LFI
Even before the official announcement of the new government casting, many LFI executives fired sharp arrows on Twitter, comparing the executive to a “Titanic” in which “few volunteers” had wanted to board, according to the expression of the deputy Manual Bompard.

His colleague from Seine-Saint-Denis Clémentine Autain saw in the reshuffle the reflection of a “macronie at a standstill”. “Nothing new under the gray sky of the government (…) A little game of musical chairs, rare new profiles obviously acquired by old neoliberal recipes”, she tweeted, also attributing the ousting of Damien Abad, targeted by an investigation for attempted rape, to “feminist pressure”.

Several rebels also aimed their criticism at the general policy statement expected on Wednesday, again summoning Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne to submit to a vote of confidence.
“The lifespan (of this new government, editor’s note) will perhaps be 48 hours. On Wednesday, the Prime Minister must submit to a vote of confidence, or else a motion of censure,” threatened Alexis Corbière.
Announcements on this “future” #government seem to be: “We take the same, we start over” or the last quadroon of radicalized macronists.
Its lifespan will be perhaps 48 hours.
Wednesday, the 1st Minister must submit to a vote of confidence, or else Motion of censure.

“The main thing will be played out in the National Assembly thanks to the vote of the French who did not give an absolute majority to the macronie”, added his lieutenant Ian Brossat.
The very critical RN
