Last quote by Natalie Nougayrède

Macron’s election victory boosted Merkel’s position too. A new Franco-German partnership could reinvigorate both countries. As Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron warmly embraced in Berlin on Monday, one widespread narrative was that, for all the Frenchman’s chutzpah, he was the much weaker partner. Here was an untested newcomer seeking favours from Europe’s most powerful leader. Here was the president of a troubled France, sitting down with a German chancellor whose national economy keeps barrelling ahead and whose personal clout seems all but invincible.feedback

Natalie Nougayrède has most recently been quoted in an article called Macron’s choice of music - Europe’s anthem - said more than words. Natalie Nougayrède said, “France’s new president campaigned against narrow nationalism. That’s why his win matters for Europe. It was no coincidence that the music Emmanuel Macron chose to accompany him, as he walked in victory through the Louvre esplanade on Sunday night, was Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, the official anthem of the European Union. This election was, first and foremost, the rebuttal of what could have been – for France, Europe and the west at large – a slide into a new dark age. To say this in no way diminishes the other accomplishments of Macron’s win: the youngest French president in modern history, and a meteoric rise that slickly took advantage of crumbling traditional political structures.”. Natalie Nougayrède has been quoted a grand total of 15 times in 12 articles.

Natalie Nougayrède quotes

France is a country beset by scandals and security fears – and with the mainstream parties crumbling, anything is possible. Marine Le Pen’s far-right Front National party has never been closer to power. That is not to say she will be elected president in May. When in 1962 Charles de Gaulle introduced direct universal suffrage for the presidential election, he cushioned it with a two-round voting system in which a 50% majority is required in the runoff. Le Pen seems set to pass the first hurdle, but not the second. In that case, the biggest danger lies not so much in her entering the Elysée Palace, but in her party becoming the largest opposition force in the National Assembly after the parliamentary elections in June. But don’t be mistaken, a worst-case scenario is possible.feedback
