Sophie Pornschlegel and Yann Wernert discuss to how Macron will use the French EU Council Presidency in 2022 as a stage for his election campaign.
Relance, Puissance, Appartenance (Relief, Strength, Belonging): this is the motto under which France will take over the EU Council Presidency in the middle of the French election campaign in January 2022. What it means when the election campaign coincides with the EU Council Presidency, which issues will become important and to what extent Macron will use the Council Presidency as a stage for his election campaign are discussed by the two guests with French-German roots Sophie Pornschlegel from the European Policy Centre and Policy Fellow Yann Wernert. One thing seems clear, French is more likely to be capitalized on in the French EU presidency than the EU is in this presidency.
