POLITICAL SCAN - "It will be judged on acts," says European Affairs Minister Nathalie Loiseau after the entry into the government of the far right in Austria. The left criticizes the restraint of the executive.

How far is the time when Europe pilloried Austria for bringing the far right of the FPÖ to the government. It was after the legislative elections of 1999. Chancellor Wolfgang Schüssel had then made a deal with the ultranationalist Jörg Haider. In December 2017, change of tone. No boycott or punishment after the decision of the conservative Sebastian Kurz to entrust three regal ministries to the FPÖ - Interior, Defense, Foreign Affairs. Because it's time for restraint. Not to say realpolitik. Asked about France InfoTuesday, the Minister of European Affairs Nathalie Loiseau recalled that the "vote is sovereign". "We will all be very attentive, especially on everything related to the separation of powers, the media, the independence of justice. We will judge the acts, "she said. As for the FPÖ, once described as a neo-Nazi movement, the minister has judged that this "party has changed".

A change that reflects a change in the political balance of power in Europe. The push of the far right (Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, etc.) has changed the game. "There is a populist shift in some European countries, which is not good news," said Nathalie Loiseau. We can clog our ears not to hear. "But, in diplomatic matters," we often talk to people who do not look like you ".

PS goes to the creneau

The restraint of the French government made it react, especially on the left. PS MP Luc Carvounas criticized Emmanuel Macron, Public Senate, his lack of reaction after the formation of the Austrian government Saturday: "You have just three ministers in Austria far right ministers. There is just a small subject "... As for the former president François Hollande, he ruled Monday on his Twitter account that" the composition of the new Austrian government with the far right in ministries is contrary to the values ​​that the Europe is wearing.

In a completely different way, the vice-president of the FN Louis Aliot greeted the Austrian coalition, highlighting on BFMTVon Tuesday, that the FPÖ was not "a party of extreme right, any more than the FN" and that the right hand of the right in Austria proved the interest to operate rapprochements between neighboring political formations.
