France: Petition seeks to stop Brigitte Macron from being official “First Lady”

“Nearly 200,000 people have signed an online petition against the wife of French President Emmanuel Macron being given a formal position as the country’s First Lady. The petition, launched two weeks ago on, demands that no public money be set aside for the First Lady role that Macron promised to create for his wife while he was still a presidential candidate. ‘Brigitte Macron currently has a team of two or three aides, as well as two secretaries and two security agents. That’s enough,’ says the petition, which had collected 188,000 signatories by Monday.” (08/07/17)
