Coincidence? In the midst of the war of local authorities on the crisis of the garbage cans and the respective competences of the City and the Metropolis, the State has just appointed a new prefect for equal opportunities, in charge of the Marseille plan in large, announced by the president of the republic on September 2 at the Pharo.
The task of Laurent Carrié, who worked on the design of this plan as advisor of the territories to Jean Castex, promises to be complex. The monitoring of the plan had been entrusted to the Prime Minister by the President. In fact, for the past month, certain issues, such as the improvement in the governance of the Metropolis desired by the Head of State, has not really changed. The President had set as the first deadline his arrival on October 16 for the national congress of firefighters. According to our information, he should arrive the day before so that he can see the situation for himself. “I had asked for a political justice of the peace above the local authorities who cannot agree”, explains Marseille LREM deputy Saïd Ahamada. “What happened for the garbage cans is catastrophic at all levels, especially in terms of image. The State did well to appoint a justice of the peace as it did well to request the requisition of agents to collect the garbage. The important thing for the Marseillais is that they are picked up, and that the mayor and the president of the Metropolis face up to their responsibilities. “
Emmanuel Macron will receive the local parliamentarians of his majority on Tuesday to take stock. “The State does not choose between Martine Vassal and Benoît Payan, says the deputy. He works for the well-being of the people of Marseilles. “
