  • ‘Paris committed to Syrian peace,’ French FM tells FRANCE 24

    The escalating clashes along Syria's border with Turkey reflect the need for a comprehensive peace plan for the war-torn country, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault told FRANCE 24 in a wide-ranging interview on Wednesday. Ayrault also touched on Europe's refugee crisis, the challenges facing a post-Brexit European Union, and the "puerile" burkini row that has dominated headlines in France.

  • New Prime Minister Manuel Valls unveils reform agenda

    "Too much suffering and not enough hope." Those were the first words uttered by France's new Prime Minister Manuel Valls before parliament yesterday when he delivered his maiden speech and asked for a vote of confidence. So is Valls, who was until his nomination a popular interior minister, already a very different prime minister than his predecessor Jean-Marc Ayrault?

  • Military intervention in Syria: Opposition calls for vote in Parliament

    When it comes to war, in France, the president of the republic is the only one to decide. Or so says the constitution. But with the UK and the US giving their say to Parliament on a military intervention in Syria, François Hollande could not prevent lawmakers to hold what turned out to be a fractious debate. Even though it was not concluded by a vote, the discussion in both chambers of Parliament brought to the fore deepening divisions between the ruling socialists and the opposition.

  • Environment minister sacked: Hollande gets tough

    On the menu this week, the guillotine is back. The environment minister Delphine Batho was swiftly axed after criticizing the budget, and she is very unhappy about it. Also on the menu, another very unhappy person: former president Nicolas Sarkozy abruptly resigned from the Constitutional Council after France's top court ruled that he had breached official spending limits during last year's election campaign.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
