A letter, “very simple, very classic”, will launch an important political week in France. His resignation letter ready, Prime Minister Jean Castex is indeed on the verge of leaving Matignon, leaving the field open to speculation betting on a woman to replace him for the June legislative elections.


“It’s a new era that is opening up,” commented Sunday with the Parisian John Castex. The self-proclaimed “Prime Minister of Intendance” said he was leaving “without remorse or regret”, after 20 months at Matignon.

Eyes are now turning to the Head of State Emmanuel Macron, who receives this Monday for lunch the President of the European Council Charles Michel. He assured a week ago in Berlin that he already knew the name of his next Prime Minister, endowed according to him with a “social”, “ecological” and “productive” profile.

Since then, rumors have been swirling. The only certainty, believes his entourage: it will be a woman. Especially since 74% of French people are for it, according to an Ifop poll published in the JDD.

Bayrou’s advice

For the head of the Modem François Bayrou, an ally of Emmanuel Macron, you need a person, man or woman, who has “leadership, experience. And you need a fairly great empathy with the President of the Republic “because” when the President of the Republic hates the Prime Minister things can only turn out badly, “he stressed to the Grand Jury on Sunday, citing the case of François Mitterrand and his Prime Minister Michel Rocard (1988-1991).

After those of the Minister of Labor Elisabeth Borne and the former Minister of Health Marisol Touraine, the name that comes up insistently is that of Catherine Vautrin, former Minister of Social Cohesion of Jacques Chirac, who had given her support to Emmanuel Macron before the 1st round of the presidential election. Problem: this former LR MP, who campaigned against same-sex marriage in 2012 and 2013, bristles on the left.

A “baby Borloo” in Matignon?

Also points to the name of the Vice-President of the Senate Valérie Létard, stamped “baby Borloo” for having started in politics in Valenciennes alongside the centrist Jean-Louis Borloo, before being Secretary of State in charge of green technologies in his ministry. of Ecology from 2009 to 2010, within the Fillon government. She also ticks the “social box” since she was Secretary of State for Solidarity in the same Fillon government from 2007 to 2009.


The choice is all the more expected as it will confirm or not the orientation that the Head of State intends to take, who has promised to take into account the anger expressed by many French people during the crisis of “vests yellows” and during the presidential election, and to change the method.
