As mentioned with comparaisons with Tony Blair

 

Was this location where he set up his campaign victory win, or was this already reserved for whoever won? Where was Le Pen going to have hers if not here?

For the first question, I don't know, but I guess the candidates may choose the places. When Hollande won, I remember he did that speech on Tulle (His commune), where the explanade was smaller. And then, Le Pen choose a smaller place, in part because the people of FN vetoed the presence of representatives of the press like Le Monde, Liberation and others. In full irony, the majority of the Russian press was there with Le Pen.

Immediately after his investiture, President Macron will be welcoming members of the International Olympic Committee to Paris on next Sunday evening.

The only drawback: his enmity with Anne Hidalgo, mayor of Paris, who supported the socialist candidate Benoît Hamon."They do not appreciate politically but they agree on the OG case," says Christophe Castaner, spokesman for the movement.

Democratically speaking, Anne was never going to get exactly what she wanted. The realistic alternative would have pleased her (and many, many others) far less.

Also Anne Hidalgo (Which I respect her) has other problems inside the party to solve than creating problems with Macron and he's open to negotiate.

I said both sides (Males and Females), I warned that.

And yep, France is a semi-presidential Republic since the foundation of the V Republic in 1958 with Charles De Gaulle. The creator of this new political system (Michel Debré) was the first Prime Minister. The President (Head of State) has equal powers like a classic presidential regime (For example: USA), but also as a different head of governement (Related to internal administration) France has a Prime Minister, which also serves as link between the President and the Parliament. It's an upgrade work comparing the Vice-president of the USA, as an hybrid of the European Parliamentary systems. In the crazy days of 7 years of presidential periods (Changed with Chirac by the 90s), the Parliament was from one party (center-right) and the President from another party (center-left), then the P. Minister was the vindication of cohabitation government for both parties. A nutcase in politics :lol:

They're all talking about their fond memories of the 1984 Games, because LA's mayor was there and apparently two people from the Evaluation Commission participated in those Games. I bet it's not going to be the same when they visit Paris, and you all know why.

That's why LA can wait a little bit longer. Paris has waited long enough.
