Leftist commie Macron?. Seriously. --93.191.139.9 (talk) 18:52, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

They don't literally say that, but they refuse to admit his centrist, and their article goes on a tangent. —вιgℓʝвιgℓ (ᴛᴀʟᴋ/sᴛᴀʟᴋ) 15:49, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
He's a run of the mill slightly right of center centrist that has managed to pass himself off as a slightly left of center centrist due to the current political climate. Evil Zionist (talk) 18:28, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

A supporter's point of view[edit]

Note: I am pro-Macron and French, so if I am not being objective please tell me. Moreover, my sources are mostly in French; although I found some in English, I can't guarantee the websites that provide them are as trustworthy as the French sources.

"The Good" seems a bit weak to me. It would be worth mentioning:

-his project to put a bonus/penalty system in place on the subject of unfixed/fixed term contracts, to encourage companies to make less of the latter and more of the former (https://www.archynetys.com/business/emmanuel-macron-puts-the-bonus-penalty-on-the-table-to-fight-against-the-abuse-of-cdd/);

-his ambition to create an european minimum wage (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-minimum-wage-eu-labour-european-commission-a8908761.html);

-the progressive removal of the housing tax for most households (https://parispropertygroup.com/blog/2017/macron-announces-changes-impacting-real-estate-in-paris/) ;

-or the opening of medically-assisted procreation to all women (https://www.france24.com/en/20180925-france-bioethics-body-backs-medically-assisted-reproduction-all-women-lesbian-couples), among other things.

And this begs a question: is it just to say that Macron is a neoliberal? Although one could say he is more right-wing than left-wing, he is definitely no Thatcher.

I'm not doing the modifications right away because it's my first time contributing to an article on this website, so I'd rather not take the risk to do something stupid. — Unsigned, by: Qqun / talk / contribs

I would say he is a neolibreal and I know others who agree, but by all means feel free to improve the article. NekoDysk 21:04, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
