81 days before the presidential election, Emmanuel Macron will deliver a speech in the European Parliament, where the opposition will challenge him, the environmental candidate Yannick Jadot in the lead. This Strasbourg speech marks the beginning of the French presidency of the Council of the European Union but also of the period during which the Head of State, still not declared a candidate, could take the step, officials of the majority having indicated that he wouldn’t before.

A fervent pro-European, at 11:30 a.m., he will make a speech of about twenty minutes to MEPs, where he will outline his priorities (sovereignty, Schengen, climate, minimum wage in particular), before a debate in the hemicycle. He will then have lunch with the new Speaker of Parliament, Maltese Conservative Roberta Metsola, and then hold a press conference. An important place will be left to French elected representatives during the debate: for the far right to Jordan Bardella and Nicolas Bay (RN), for the right the MEP to François-Xavier Bellamy (LR), for the radical left to Manon Aubry ( LFI), and for environmentalists to Yannick Jadot, the only presidential candidate to sit in Strasbourg.
