Macron appeared in front of the cameras to promote the website of the “Re-establishment National Council”, which was established recently to bring together representatives from fields such as politics, trade unions and civil society at the Elysee Palace.
BROGAZLI SWEATER HAS BEEN THE AGENDA
President Macron’s speech to the camera in his office, wearing a turtleneck sweater under his jacket instead of a tie shirt, as in the past, was the subject of the country’s press.
Bruno Jeudy, policy editor for the French channel BFMTV, evaluated that Macron’s turtleneck sweater gave a message of support for “the government’s energy saving initiative in the face of fears of winter power cuts and rising prices.”
While energy saving suggestions such as thick clothing instead of increasing the heating temperatures in the face of winter cold in the country were discussed, Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne had started an attempt to “wear winter clothes” by wearing a coat and Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire by wearing a turtleneck sweater.
THE GOVERNMENT’S SUGGESTIONS FOR SAVINGS WAS THE MATTER OF JOY
The opposition called for a solution to the energy crisis instead of criticizing the government and calling for savings.
Some opposition figures also reacted by recalling the images of the ministers’ official vehicles operating in front of the Elysee Palace during a meeting during the summer period.
Some government deputies’ “saving proposals, such as coming to the Parliament with a clothes hanger instead of a dryer, and a blanket,” for the energy shortage, which turned into a crisis after the Russian gas was cut, became the subject of ridicule among the politicians in the country.
FRANCE IS IN ENERGY BOTTLES
The French also commented on social media that “the government is being ridiculed with its advice to save energy instead of solving the energy shortage”.
The interruption in energy supply from Moscow due to the Russia-Ukraine war and the dramatic increase in energy prices, as well as the maintenance of more than 30 nuclear reactors, led to a serious energy crisis in France.
On the other hand, in the country where there is an energy shortage, it is discussed to keep the household temperatures at a maximum of 19 degrees and to impose sanctions on those who do not comply.
