The mayor Les Républicains de La Garenne-Colombes and presidential candidate was the guest of the franceinfo channel, Monday, August 30. He considered “absurd” Emmanuel Macron’s proposal to organize the reception of Afghan women in France.

Philippe Juvin, LR mayor of La Garenne-Colombes (Hauts-de-Seine) and candidate for a possible right-wing primary for the presidential election, was the guest of “24 h politique”, on franceinfo, Monday, August 30. Asked by Gilles Bornstein, the elected representative reacted to Emmanuel Macron’s comments on Afghanistan in Le JDD (subscribers article), the day before. In this interview, the President of the Republic declares that “there are many [Afghan] women who have been educated over the past twenty years, especially in the cities, and who must be helped to escape repression”.

“This declaration does not mean anything”, estimated Philippe Juvin, for whom “we cannot accommodate half of the population of Afghanistan”. “The president must stop communicating,” he said.
