Three months after the launch of the great national debate, decided to appease the crisis of "yellow vests", Emmanuel Macron is finally about to reveal the remedy he intends to administer to the country. Friday, April 12, the Elysee assured that the head of state should address the nation "In the coming days".

"It will be Sunday evening or Monday night, a speech on television", thinks he knows a regular of the palace. A speech that could be coupled with a letter published in the regional daily press. "Nothing is decided, it is enough for someone to come out crazy during the weekend and he can change everything", nuance one of his regular visitors.

The only certainty, the President of the Republic has no right to error. That he manages to convince a majority of French – especially the one who continues to support the challenge of "yellow vests", despite the violence – and it is the prospect of living a second half of five years quieter that opens to him . Whether "Deceptive"as many members of the government feared, and that is the risk of having his mandate hindered.

In recent weeks, all ministers have sent their ideas back to the head of state, through Matignon. At each Council of Ministers, the "Part D", the one reserved for informal discussions, was devoted to solutions to the crisis. But no one knows what Mr. Macron has remembered. "He listens but does not say anything", wonders a secretary of state. "I do not know what will come out at the end of the bench", confesses a heavyweight of the government.

"Zero tax tolerance"

At his invitation, several ministers launched ideas in the public debate. Not surprisingly, the strongest at this game were those from the right, more experienced. Whether on pensions or public spending, Bruno Le Maire, Gerald Darmanin and Sebastien Lecornu gave voice.

"There is an asymmetry between the right wing of the government, armed for controversy, and the left wing, more novice and more moderate: the power of the word is not the same"recognizes a minister from civil society.

To listen to Edouard Philippe, the question of the tax burden will be at the heart of the presidential announcements. "Our country has reached a kind of zero tax tolerance today, pointed the prime minister during the restitution of the great debate, April 8. We need to lower taxes faster. "
