Thunderclap at Radio France. Wednesday 31 January, the superior Council of audiovisual (CSA) has decided to put an end to the mandate of Mathieu Gallet. A decision strongly criticized by Frédéric Mitterand, who puts forward “the rumor absurd,” with Emmanuel Macron, who would have played in its favour.

Mathieu Gallet has been revoked Wednesday, January 31, of the presidency of Radio France by the CSA. A radical decision, which shall take effect on the 1st march next. According to the seven members of the board in charge of the case, the recent conviction of Mathieu Gallet for acts of “favoritism” towards the national audiovisual Institute (INA) – he was sentenced to one year suspended prison sentence and € 20,000 fine – would have resulted in his immediate removal. A decision strongly criticized by Frédéric Mitterand, the former minister of Culture under Nicolas Sarkozy, who denounced the close ties between the government and the Wise : “I thought that the CSA would assert his independence in the face of pressure from the government, he entrusted to the Parisian. This is not net. There is a story behind the story. Is this a political decision ? I have to ask. I even wonder if the rumour absurd to link with Emmanuel Macron, that the future President had referred during his campaign, has not played in his favour. “

Frédéric Mitterand is thus referring to the rumours of a liaison between Emmanuel Macron, then candidate to the presidential election, and Mathieu Gallet, which would lead ” a double life “. The leader of the Walk had immediately denied this information during a meeting at the théâtre Bobino in Paris, recalling that he was married to Brigitte Macron for several years.

In the Face of these statements, the government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux wished to make things clear at the microphone of Europe 1 on Thursday 1 February, claiming that the Elysée was not the decision-maker of this revocation.
