«Administrative simplification should not be imported into democracy and constitutional rights! »

METERardi January 30, before the national representation, the premier minister, Gabriel Attal, pronounces these general political discourses and announces the dépôt d’un second joint green industry project «propose notamment to concentrate the work of the CNDP (National public debate commission) Uniquely on national projects.

The temptation of gagner quelques mois ne vaut pas le coût qu’elle engendre: the reduction of constitutional rights and the risk of an atteinte à l’environnement à l’abri des respect. Assuming that the réussite de la transition ecological ne soit qu’une affaire de nouvelles industries plus vertes, le gouvernement se trompe de chemin.
