After Emmanuel Macron, whose “studious” vacation in Brégançon, in the Var, began almost a week ago, place for ministers, on leave, after the end of parliamentary work with the usual guidelines not to be too s away from Paris. Asked to remain in their posts until the end of the debates in the National Assembly and the Senate, Thursday afternoon, the ministers were instructed, via a circular, to choose a destination “compatible with the exercise of their responsibilities “. And to remain reachable “if necessary”. Clearly, they must stay two or three hours from Paris at most.
