Macron makes appointments amidst controversy

Paris, Jul 3 (Prensa Latina) French President Emmanuel Macron appointed several officials amidst political crisis, used by the leader of the National Rally (RN), Marine Le Pen, to accuse him of an "administrative coup d'état".

In a Council of Ministers, Philippe Tireloque was appointed as national director of Active Services of the Police and Public Security and Jérôme Harnois as prefect of the department of Charente, among others.

The day before, Le Pen had launched on the France Inter channel the hypothesis that Macron was preparing an “administrative coup d’état” with appointments that she considered a measure to hinder the cohabitation in power, if RN achieves the absolute majority in the National Assembly.

The party identified with the extreme right is favored to dominate the lower house after the second round of legislative elections on Sunday, although it will have to be seen if the number of deputies for the control of the Bourbon Palace, set at least 289 of its 577 seats, will be enough.

The absolute majority would allow RN to have the post of Prime Minister, which would be exercised by its current president and head of list in the European elections in June, Jordan Bardella.
