Do you speak En Marche’s Newspeak fluently? We have, in recent years, learned the word “burex”, now discover the “steerco”. Reminder: the “burex” is the executive office of the presidential party, a very official governing body. The “steerco” is something else, less institutional, more operational. It comes from the English “steering committee” which means in French, steering committee. There are 7 members of the “steerco”.
In fact, they call themselves the “G7”. Stanislas Guérini, party boss, Marie Guévenoux his deputy, Clément Beaune, Secretary of State for European Affairs, Jean-Marc Borello, one of the first Walkers, Stéphane Séjourné, MEP and advisor to the president, Sibeth N’Diaye, and the deputy Roland Lescure, meet (in video) on Friday at 5 pm, and they speak… politics. The regional ones of course but above all they are starting to think about 2022 …
And this is where the “G7” identified a big problem. They fear that the next presidential election will be placed under the sign of the post-truth. Being aware that they will be accountable for a balance sheet, they are afraid that their opponents will not be content to criticize the action of Emmanuel Macron, but squarely present a situation of the country which would not, in particular on the economic level, not conforms to reality.
Stéphane Séjourné, for example, proposes that we ask for an audit of the Court of Auditors next fall on public finances. In the hope of obtaining a document with consensus on the state of the country. A sort of anti-fakenews screen to guarantee fair competition. Usually, it is after the election that we do the accounts, there, it may take place … before.
