Podcast: Rebuilding Notre Dame gets political, French presidential powers, and village politics

Podcast: Rebuilding Notre Dame gets political, French presidential powers, and village politics
 
Spotlight on France episode 3 RFI

This week we look at democracy in France: a conversation about the power of the French presidency and how French people trust their mayors more than other politicians. We meet a local councillor in a small village, who talks about his role on the very basic levels of French representative democracy. Also, Notre Dame's reconstruction has become political. And a new public debate - over what to do about nuclear waste. Plus, we go to the movies.

In this episode:

- J'Veux du soleil, film by Francois Ruffin (@francois_ruffin), MP and journalist

- Vincent Martigny (@vincentmartigny), assistant professor of politics, Ecole polytechnique

- Donogh O'Brien, local councillor, village of Saint-Outrille
