December 21, 2018 – News
On the occasion of his visit to Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche (Haute-Vienne), the Prime Minister has specified certain modalities of the great national debate whose main phase will begin mid-January.
Édouard Philippe: a debate to “allow all French people to say what they want or do not want”
In each region, conferences of a hundred citizens drawn will discuss the results of the debate.
“The idea is to ensure that French people who are not [usually] the most involved in the public debate can give their opinion, at national, regional and local,” said Édouard Philippe.
The aim of the Government is for the debate to be “at once neutral, innovative and comprehensive” and “to allow us to rebuild something collectively as a nation”. The Government will be “much more in a logic of listening than in a logic of speaking,” said the Prime Minister.
