Pierre Charon, “black baron” of Macronie

One evening at the Elysée, Tuesday April 30, a good month before the dissolution of the National Assembly by Emmanuel Macron. The son of the former Senate dentist and a ceramist, holder of no major diploma, is elevated to the rank of officer of the Legion of Honor by the President of the Republic. Pierre Charon, the recipient, was given permission to invite whoever he wanted, and the person concerned has a very dense address book, on the borders of show business, Sarkozie, the police and, now, Macronie. Claude Bartolone and Richard Ferrand, former presidents of the National Assembly, rub shoulders with the host Arthur, of whom Charon was the personal advisor, and his wife, the former Miss France Mareva Galanter, Frédéric Péchenard, former police director, Ange Mancini, former intelligence boss… The actor Christian Clavier, « [son] best friend “is excused.

To cram all of Pierre Charon’s CV into his speech, Emmanuel Macron must have been very bothered, because the star of the evening is somewhat eclectic and, above all, most of his thousand lives are not official. Its influence is exerted in random areas, always in the wake of the powerful. Certainly, he was a senator (Les Républicains) of Paris from 2011 to 2023, but above all he was Jacques Chirac’s handyman at Paris City Hall and the « gun holder » of Nicolas Sarkozy at the Elysée, before becoming one of Emmanuel Macron’s informal advisors. He was director of the Domaine de Chambord, former employee of Elf Aquitaine, France Loto, France Galop, Canal+ and Publicis, but above all the masked supplier, “established since 1974”, of the best gossip from the Republic.

Emmanuel Macron summed it up well: “Pierre Charon’s true profession is to be Pierre Charon: a man of confidence and prescience. (…) Like at Audiard, after a while, you no longer talk, you shoot! (…) Never far from the action, always at the service of the Republic, this is what you are: a man steeped in resistance, in plots that we think are impossible, in crazy projects. » Premonitory?

Since this historic Sunday, June 9, not an article attempting to document the circumstances of the dissolution of the National Assembly has failed to mention Pierre Charon. The one who, with three other demiurges, would have helped convince the president to launch this audacious bet… Or insane. In the game: the memory advisor of the Elysée and former journalist, Bruno Roger-Petit (known as “BRP”), the vice-president of Publicis and former advisor to the Elysée, Clément Leonarduzzi, the special advisor to the president, Jonathan Guémas and… Pierre Charon.
