The Minister of the Interior asked members of the government to limit their travel. At issue: the exceptional context in terms of public order.
PMany ministers will be on the ground next week. In the Council of Ministers, Wednesday September 13, Gérald Darmanin asked members of the government to limit their travel as much as possible, according to information from RTL, so as not to mobilize police officers and gendarmes who are already busy elsewhere. A decision taken due to the “exceptional context in terms of public order”, the Minister of the Interior would have explained to his colleagues, according to the radio.
Each ministerial trip mobilizes, in fact, a significant number of law enforcement officers to ensure their security. And between the Rugby World Cup which has been played in France since September 8, the visit of King Charles III from September 20 to 22 and the Pope’s visit to Marseille on September 22-23 during which he will celebrate a mass at the Vélodrome stadium and will go up the Prado in a “popemobile”, a very busy week awaits the police.
Ministerial agendas to review
Gérald Darmanin is entering “the start of a big sequence for him, with his work cut out for him, where we must not miss out,” a participant in the council of ministers told BFMTV. “The Minister of the Interior is in his role of preparation and anticipation. There is not much surprise…” explained another minister.READ ALSO Gérald Darmanin, confidences of a freedman

This announcement also comes during the government reserve period already in force, limiting announcements in the departments affected by the upcoming senatorial elections.
