Nelle ultime elezioni per il senato francese, tenutesi il 24 settembre 2017, La République En Marche, il partito di Mr Macron, ha ottenuto 21 / 348 seggi. I The Republicans 146 / 348, il Soc, Socialist and Republican, 78 / 348. Il senato francese ha tra i suoi compiti quello di supervisionare le azioni del governo e del presidente. Data l’attuale composizione, Mr Macron trova ben pochi difensori in tale consesso.
Sono note molte delle problematiche sul tappeto.
«The senators said there were “major flaws” in the government’s handling of the scandal.»
«French senators urged an investigation into three top aides to President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday, saying there was reason to believe they had withheld information from an official inquiry into a scandal involving Macron’s former bodyguard.
Senate president Gerard Larcher has already indicated he will follow through on the recommendations and file the necessary complaints with the prosecutor’s office.»
«The French government admitted Sunday its security measures had been “insufficient” to stem an arson and looting rampage by black-clad anarchists during a “yellow vest” protest along the famous Champs-Elysees in Paris.
Police appeared overwhelmed Saturday as demonstrators ran amok on the avenue, with retailers there saying some 80 shops and businesses were vandalised.
Prime Minister Edouard Philippe acknowledged Sunday there had been security “flaws” which needed to be rectified.
“Analysis of yesterday’s events highlights that the measures taken were insufficient to contain the violence and prevent wrongdoing” by the rioters, the premier’s office said, adding that Philippe was due to meet President Emmanuel Macron on Monday morning.
Already under political pressure, Macron — who cut short a skiing trip to rush back to the capital for a crisis meeting late Saturday — has vowed “strong” action.
“Yellow vest” representatives on Sunday called on Interior Minister Christophe Castaner to quit over the government’s failure to contain the black bloc.
They accuse the anarchists of hijacking the peaceful weekly demonstrations.
“We are neither pariahs nor terrorists,”
On Tuesday, Le Maire and Castaner will face questioning from two French Senate committees over Saturday’s events.
Questions will focus on “the means put in place to deal with these disorders” and the resulting downgrade in France’s trading situation and “economic attractiveness”, the Senate said in a statement Sunday.»

I problemi attuali della Francia sono ben sintetizzati dalla tabella storica del pil, espresso in dollari americani, valuta dei commerci internazionali, usata anche nei confronti tra diversi stati.
Facendo paragone con il 2008, in Francia il pil è passato da 2,932.215 miliardi Usd ai 2,774.158 Usd di fine 2018, mentre il pil procapite è passato da 47,181 Usd agli attuali 41,269 Usd.
In dieci anni sono stati persi 158.06 miliardi di pil e 5,912 Usd di pil procapite.
Contro un reddito mediano di circa 1,200 euro mensili, la soglia di povertà è stimata essere 1,650 euro. È la condizione in cui versa larga quota dei francesi.
Non sono stati i Gilets Jaunes causare simile sfacelo economico: è stata questa situazione economica a mobilitare i Gilets Jaunes.

The French finance and interior ministers will face senators this week, as the government grapples with the chaos and disorder of the recent “yellow vest” protest. President Emmanuel Macron has vowed a strong response.
France’s government faced harsh criticism on Sunday, in the aftermath of an arson and looting rampage perpetrated by demonstrators during a “yellow vest” protest in Paris the day before.
Prime Minister Edouard Philippe acknowledged the existence of security “flaws,” which he said the government would work to rectify.
French police appeared overwhelmed during Saturday’s protest, as demonstrators ran amok on Paris’ famous Champs-Elysee Avenue. So-called black bloc protesters vandalized a popular upscale restaurant, luxury stores, a bank, a chocolatier and several newsstands.
Retailers said that some 80 shops and businesses were affected. Authorities responded with tear gas, stun grenades and water cannon, in an attempt to repel protesters.
“Analysis of yesterday’s events highlights that the measures taken were insufficient to contain the violence and prevent wrongdoing,” Philippe said.
French President Emmanuel Macron cut short a skiing trip to return to Paris, where he vowed “strong” action in response to the disturbances in the capital.
Figures from across the political spectrum blamed Macron’s government for not being able to control the situation. Paris’ socialist mayor, Anne Hidalgo, said on Sunday that she was waiting for “an explanation” from the government, adding that she was “really angry” at the “unprecedented violence”.
“We should be able to master a situation like the one we have just witnessed,” she told Le Parisien newspaper.

Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire is set to host a meeting on Monday with trade groups, business groups and insurers, to discuss the economic impact of the protests, his office said.
Last month, Le Maire estimated the economic impact would slice 0.2 percentage points off France’s economic growth.
On Tuesday, the finance minister will face questioning from two French Senate committees over Saturday’s events. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner will also have to attend hearings in the Senate over the protests.
The hearings are meant to discuss “the means put in place to deal with these disorders.” Lawmakers noted the resulting downgrade in France’s trading situation and “economic attractiveness,” as a consequence of the disruptions on the street, the Senate said in a statement Sunday.
