No step backward in the fight against terrorism, sub-Saharan Africa will remain a theater of operation by the African Union, the G5 Sahel and the Algerian partner. On the economic plan, Emmanuel Macron intends to put the European Union at the centre of his plan. For the development aid, the famous 0,7 % of the French GDP is not denied. Between 2014 and 2016, Minister of Finance visits some countries of the CFA zone, meets Alassane Ouattara, Macky Sall. The candidate went to Algiers where he evokes the crimes against humanity committed by France, before returning to Paris.Who are men and women who will control the African policy of Emmanuel Macron? Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister of Defence of François Hollande, architect of the military operations in Africa, is the inescapable man in the fight against terrorism. Cédric Lewandowski, very close to Jean-Yves Le Drian, and who negotiated the liberation of the hostages in Sahel, should occupy a key post.

Some people know that our political group was reticent about it but we decided to carry on with it because we believe that it is in the interest of the people and it must happen.
