An the evening of Sunday June 9, an advisor to the Elysée drew a parallel between the dissolution of the National Assembly caused by Emmanuel Macron and that decided by de Gaulle, on May 30, 1968, to emerge from the crisis. The context, he clarified, has nothing to do with it but the objective remained the same: to regain lost legitimacy. Nearly sixty years ago, this operation resulted in a Chamber largely won over to the General, who had played to the fullest on the legitimist reflex of the French, tired by weeks of blockages. After the “dog”order restored.

As soon as the dissolution was announced, the president used this power, denouncing the ” mess ” and the ” fever ” maintained by the extremes who sow confusion in the Assembly and pollute public debate, while threatening the government with censorship. “Without dissolution, it would have been a disaster”he said, on June 18 on the island of Sein (Finistère), where he celebrated the 84e anniversary of the General’s appeal. Here we are.

His calculation is clear: play on the fears of the French, to whom he wishes to appear once again as the only reassuring recourse (” You know me “), the guarantor of order and its stability, in the face of extremes and their excesses. But this time, it’s the opposite: the head of state, whose role is to cushion shocks, appears to be the one who organized the disorder. “Mr. President, how could you put us in this situation (…), this chaos? »a walker on the island of Sein called out to him on Tuesday. “His decision, which was not understood, gives rise to a loss of direction and great concern for the future”says the pollster (IFOP) Frédéric Dabi, according to which “the French seem to think that “the dog is him””.

“It puts France on the verge of a nervous breakdown”

What else “democratic” one “return to the people”, the president has repeated since June 9. The hasty organization of this election, however, raises many questions. Rarely has there been such a short time frame for calling an election: only twenty days, the minimum time required by the Constitution. Before it even begins, the campaign will already be over. This haste compromises the holding of substantive debates and handicaps candidates who have not had time to prepare, far from the conditions of serenity that should allow the “democratic breathing” desired. On June 30, during the first round, alone 4,011 candidates will be able to present themselves to the French, compared to 6,290 in 2022.
