Disavowed by the Council of State about the authorization of the burkini in municipal swimming pools, the mayor of Grenoble, Eric Piolle confirmed “to take note” of this decision. Eric Piolle will not counter-attack. While the Council of State confirmed on Tuesday the decision of the administrative court of Grenoble to suspend the new internal regulations of municipal swimming pools, allowing women to bathe in burkini, the mayor of the city confirmed this Wednesday at the microphone of CNEWS that he took note of it. “The Council of State is the highest administrative court, so obviously we respect this decision,” he said. “He lent us an intention, which is an excessive departure (from the general rule), for reasons of religious claim. This is not our intention, but we hear his message and we respect it,” continued Mayor EELV. “DESPITE EVERYTHING A FORMIDABLE PROGRESS” The order of the highest administrative court in the country in fact estimated on Tuesday, like the administrative court at the end of May, that “contrary to the stated objective” of modifying the rules of swimwear accepted, the adaptation of the text “was only intended to authorize the wearing of the burkini in order to satisfy a claim of a religious nature”. The judge considered it “likely to affect the proper functioning of the public service” and “undermines” its “principle of neutrality”. Eric Piolle had already indicated on Tuesday that the city of Grenoble took note of the decision of the Council of State, while continuing to defend the new internal regulations for swimming pools, which he carried. He said on social networks that it was “despite everything (a) tremendous progress since it allows, beyond the point suspended by the administrative court, equality for women and men, by the lifting of the monokini ban”. The new rules of procedure for swimming pools are nevertheless a tremendous step forward since they allow, beyond the point suspended by the administrative court, equality for women and men, by lifting the ban on monokini for women . – Eric Piolle (@EricPiolle) June 21, 2022
