ER Editor: A reminder that the first round of the French Presidential elections will take place next Sunday, April 10.
This brief article below refers to the McKinsey scandal, which we published on yesterday. It’s really worth checking out for the extent to which Macron is hostage to this company (as are the French!) and how far back it all goes. Freddie Ponton (for 21st Century Wire) has done a great job:

Request to the Constitutional Council: should Emmanuel Macron’s candidacy be re-examined?
On March 8, 2022, a group of three citizens, including an ousted presidential candidate, submitted a petition to the Constitutional Council to request that the candidacy of Emmanuel Macron be reconsidered.
Is Emmanuel Macron really transparent? F. Froger / Z9, for FranceSoir / AFP
Until he officially presented himself for a second term, Emmanuel Macron was as discreet as possible, putting his campaign in the background. Today, with the first round approaching, he has failed to avoid the spotlight and the flaws in his candidacy have thus been revealed. Among them, the McKinsey affair has caused a stir since the Senate committee issued its damning report, highlighting “a sprawling phenomenon” of conflicts of interest. In his official statements, on this subject as on the subject of his assets, the outgoing president has not shown great transparency.
Their request is thus based on “conflicts of interest not reported by Emmanuel Macron” , recalling that the Electoral Code provides:
The ban on omitting to declare a substantial part of one’s assets or interests,
The ban on providing a false assessment of one’s assets.
To support their argument, the applicants refer in particular to the links of interest that Emmanuel Macron has with “Mr. Karim TADJEDDINE, associate director of McKinsey France” and responsible for the “Public sector” activity, who “participated in raising funds in 2016 in his favour” and who still stands by his side. Then, they emphasize the fact that the American firm also advises the Pfizer company, the firm for which Emmanuel Macron “contributed to the realization of operations” when he was still a banker.
The request concludes as follows:
“Candidate Emmanuel Macron was therefore in a double conflict of interest which he did not consider useful to point out in his declaration of conflict of interest submitted to the Constitutional Council and thus deprived the latter to be able to carry out its control mission with full transparency and objectivity.”
Finally, the three citizens ask that the institution, guarantor of the “regularity of the election of the President of the Republic,” decide again on the candidacy of Emmanuel Macron. And this, without Laurent Fabius, current President of the Constitutional Council, taking part in the examination. He, too, is held by the octopus McKinsey… (ER: his son is involved as a McKinsey employee.)
