how Macron reframed Darmanin after the Stade de France fiasco

According to our information, Gérald Darmanin was expressly asked to stop discarding and stepping up.

Five days later, the incidents on the sidelines of the Champions League final match at the Stade de France continue to cause ink to flow. And at the top of the state, the sequence also aroused anger. Emmanuel Macron had very little taste of the management operated by Gérald Darmanin, learned BFMTV confirming information from RTL. His minister seemed to discard at first, before proceeding differently.

“We can say that he was furious”, according to a close friend of the head of state at BFMTV. “The Minister of the Interior was expressly asked to step up and stop explaining that we were not responsible for anything,” confides this same source.

Reported remarks which echo those with vitriol quoted in The chained Duck this Wednesday. According to the weekly, Emmanuel Macron considered Saturday’s “spectacle” to be “pitiful”, “shameful” and “unworthy of France”.

“20,000 supporters is the attendance of a large market on a Saturday morning”

According to our information, the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister asked in particular that the tenant of Beauvau no longer discharge on the Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castera, whose performance was deemed to be of good quality on RTL on Monday , and in front of the press on Monday noon, together with Gérald Darmanin.

“All day Sunday, Darmanin’s cabinet explained that it was not a subject of the Ministry of the Interior, but a subject of Sports… even though he had tweeted from the security PC. Then when it was again become an Interior subject, he explained that they had saved lives. 20,000 supporters, that’s the attendance of a big market on a Saturday morning!”, creaks a minister.

“Fortunately, Liverpool supporters are nice people”

In the entourage of Emmanuel Macron, a close breath: “By the way, fortunately the Liverpool supporters are nice people, and not hooligans.”

The powerful secretary general of the Élysée, Alexis Kohler, was also responsible for passing the instructions to Gérald Darmanin. According to a participant in the traditional Monday meeting at the Château, the subject was approached with “great firmness”. But despite these guidelines, the 20 hours of Gérald Darmanin, on TF1 Monday evening, was not very offensive on the responsibility, judges a close friend of Emmanuel Macron.

“We must understand what happened. There were clearly malfunctions. We must learn all the lessons for future events,” said Matignon. “We have asked that the two ministries lead the meeting”, it is added, because there are public order subjects and organizational subjects specific to Sports.

This identification of malfunctions will be done under the leadership of the prefect Michel Cadot.

“Multitude of dysfunctions”

From Saturday evening, Matignon was in contact with the two ministries, and passed the instructions on Sunday. However, those around Elisabeth Borne reject the argument that Gérald Darmanin would not have taken up the subject.

“The first subject that emerged is the problem of paper tickets and the sports organization. There were a multitude of dysfunctions that we must clarify on the sports and police aspects”, we say.

Élisabeth Borne and Gérald Darmanin saw each other on Tuesday. According to those around her, the Prime Minister had an exchange with her Minister of the Interior on all the subjects of her portfolio, as with the other ministers, and the events at the Stade de France were among the things mentioned.

“All the confidence of the president”

For her part, government spokeswoman Olivia Grégoire assured this Wednesday during her post-Council of Ministers update that Gérald Darmanin “has the full confidence of the President of the Republic”.

According to Olivia Grégoire, the head of state said that he “expects transparency, light on the facts, leads so that it does not happen again, and responsiveness from his government”.

This Wednesday, Gérald Darmanin and the Minister of Sports Amélie Oudéa-Castera are expected at 5 p.m. for a hearing in the Senate.
