The themes :

The budget cut by 10 billion euros. French economic growth will be less vigorous than expected in 2024, with a forecast reduced to 1%, announced the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire, unveiling 10 billion in savings “immediate” to meet deficit reduction ambitions. The savings will relate in particular to the current expenditure of ministries, development aid and the “MaPrimeRénov’” system thermal renovation.

Is the far right part of the Republican arc? Emmanuel Macron believes that the National Rally should refrain from attending the entry ceremony into the Pantheon, Wednesday February 21, of foreign communist resistance fighter Missak Manouchian, in an interview with the daily L’Humanité. “Far-right forces would be advised not to be present, given the nature of Manouchian’s fight”declared the head of state.

Israel threatens to send troops into Rafah. “If by Ramadan, our hostages are not at home, the fighting will continue everywhere, including in the Rafah region”, warned Benny Gantz, member of Benjamin Netanyahu’s war cabinet. The Israeli Prime Minister himself goes further by assuring that his armed forces will enter the Palestinian city whatever happens.
