Macron Attacks Brexit, Calls for 'European Federalism' in Pre-Election War Cry

To head off popular discontent, he raised the idea of a European minimum salary, "a social shield for all workers, east to west and north to south, guaranteeing the same pay in the same workplace, and a minimum European wage appropriate to each country and discussed collectively every year".

French President Emmanuel Macron speaks during a news conference at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France, February 25, 2019. "In this Europe, the United Kingdom, I am sure, will find its true place".

The 705 new members of the European Parliament elected in the May 23-26 election will help formulate new EU laws over the next five years and choose the successor to Jean-Claude Juncker, head of the European Commission, the bloc's executive arm. The EU also faces a more assertive China and challenges from Russian Federation, and has differences with the United States, especially over President Donald Trump's "America First" policies. He said: "European rules should ban all discussions of hatred and violence from the Internet". He declined to give further details.

European Council President Donald Tusk, who chairs EU leaders' summits, focused on only one aspect of Macron's reform drive - the creation of a European Agency for the Protection of Democracies to protect EU countries from outside cyber attacks and meddling in elections.

The proposed Conference for Europe "will define a roadmap for the European Union that translates these key priorities into concrete actions", Macron writes.

Surprisingly, the Champions League is now the only available window, the Los Blancos can seek a silverware in the 2018-19 campaign.

Alexander Gauland, the co-leader of the far-right opposition Alternative for Germany party, charged that Macron's "proposals for a "renewal" of the European Union would ultimately lead to yet more rules and bureaucracy and further limit the sovereignty of member states".

Gauland said that "the bigger the problems become in France, the more Macron plays global statesman". But that is not the way.

"We can not wait for the renaissance of Europe - the renaissance of Europe must start now".

But in France, where Macron's popularity has dipped since his election, there was skepticism.

More surprising was support from Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, usually a strong critic of the EU.

"There will be disagreement, but is it better to have a static Europe or a Europe that advances, sometimes at different paces, and that is open to all?" he argues.
