The postponement of the announcement of a new government is a strategy of the Head of State to “shift the benefit of victory”, assures Emmanuel Macron’s entourage on Saturday May 14 to franceinfo. >> Why is Emmanuel Macron taking so long to form his new government? Jean Castex will not resign before his return from the Vatican on Sunday evening. For his part, the President of the Republic claimed to know his next Prime Minister on Monday evening. But he never stops waiting to reveal it. Necessary “phase” of “decantation” between his two five-year terms, explained the President of the Republic two weeks ago, to ensure the return to calm and harmony. Postponing the presentation of those who will embody the “new momentum” for as long as possible is, however, a tactic, assures the entourage of the president to franceinfo. Eight weeks between the second round of the presidential election and the second round of the legislative elections is too long, and this lapse of time is enough to seal any message launched too soon, believes a friend of the head of state. Emmanuel Macron is therefore trying to “shift the benefit of victory”, explains a fellow traveler of the president. Waiting, according to a member of the presidential party, will also allow him to broaden his recruitment pool, especially since the union of the left, according to this same member, throws the last social democrats into his arms. However, Emmanuel Macron will appoint his new ministers just days before the start of the reserve period, which begins on May 23. Just put in the light, they will have to stay in the shadows. An astonishing choice, unless the objective is to immediately shine the spotlight elsewhere, in particular on the “new method” promised by the President of the Republic for his second five-year term, suggests a government source.
