Emmanuel Macron chooses former minister Thierry Breton

If Emmanuel Macron proposes Thierry Breton to the European Commission, it is because the man in question is multicard. Elected in Poitou, CEO of France Telecom, Minister of the Economy under Jacques Chirac and new CEO of Atos, a digital giant: a CV provided for a position at very large perimeter. The future French commissioner will deal, among other things, with industry, domestic markets or defense. This engineer from the right had, when he was at Bercy, an obsession: the debt.

His resume is made of back and forth between politics and companies. European opposition MEPs see this as a risk of conflict of interest. “He is the boss and shareholder of a digital box in his portfolio, there is the digital.Her company receives money from the European Union.On again, we are in the confusion of genres”regrets the Green MEP Yannick Jadot. After the rejection of the candidacy of Sylvie Goulard, Emmanuel Macron takes the risk of a new snub? For him, it's no. Thierry Breton was a supporter of Emmanuel Macron in the first round of the presidential election. It remains to pass the course of the next hearings in the European Parliament.
