For several weeks, the detractors of Emmanuel Macron have criticized the vagueness of his program. But according to him, the program is not “the heart” of an election campaign.
Presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron said to Le Journal du Dimanche that it is “a mistake to think that the program is the heart” of an election campaign. According to him, “politics is mystical”.
The former Minister of the Economy, who has been accused of being vague about his program, said in an interview that “politics is a style.” For him, “it’s a magic. You have to define the heart of what you want to wear.”
While affirming that he “does not seek to be a Christian preacher,” Emmanuel Macron declared to the JDD : “The Christian dimension, I do not deny it, I do not claim it.”
Emmanuel Macron, who is expected to win the second round according to recent polls, has been several times mocked by the socialist candidate Benoît Hamon. “We see the young cheetahs, the creatures of the system that a skilful manipulation suddenly transforms, perhaps through grace, into a great transformer,” the former Minister of Education ironically told his inaugural speech on 5th February.
The candidate of the right François Fillon called him “guru “, left wing opponent Jean-Luc Mélenchon called his supporters last week to be wary of the “hallucinogenic mushrooms that grow in the political jungle and bubble media,” wondering “where are his programs.”
Macron “will recapitulate his proposals at the beginning of March”
Also questioned in the JDD, his adviser Jean Pisani-Ferry, who spoke about the future timetable for the movement En Marches!: “In early March, he will summarize his proposals and the major commitments on which he will invest the political capital conferred by the election. ”
