CONTRE-POINT – By removing the ENA, Emmanuel Macron returns to the initial definition of macronism: movement.
Politics is also an art of surprise. Announced two years ago, as one of the lessons of the “yellow vests” crisis, the abolition of the ENA seemed forgotten. Killed by the power of resistance of the upper administration, and its political relays. Buried by a Covid crisis which seems to make subordinate any site not directly linked to its resolution.
Emmanuel Macron felt the danger there would be in leaving his five-year term freewheeling until the next presidential election. Of course, for the time being, it is only expected on its ability to rid the country of the pandemic – therefore the speed of vaccination. But having settled a crisis, even a historic one, does not take stock. And after putting away the pension reform, the head of state risked a chiraquization lawsuit. Even if the scale of the crisis provides it with mitigating circumstances, to give up reforming the country would be an admission of failure, fear, or powerlessness.
Eliminate the ENA and, beyond, rethink
