Firstly that of secularism, insufficiently understood and sometimes poorly applied, up to the highest summit of the State,” indicates Carole Delga.

The announcement of the creation of this new structure comes in the middle of a controversy. Thursday, December 8, the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron participated in a ceremony marking the start of Hanouka, the Jewish festival of lights… at the Élysée village hall. Emmanuel Macron thus triggered an explosion of criticism accusing him of violating secularism.

“The Élysée is not a place of worship”, Carole Delga immediately (and strongly) reacted. “Two days before the anniversary of the 1905 law, it is a bad signal sent by the State to the Republic. We do not compromise with secularism. This common point is precious but fragile,” she added.
