French President Nicholas Sarkozy today presented his new cabinet. One of the positive surprises is the nomination of former Prime Minister Alain Juppé to lead a superministery for ecology and sustainable development including environmental, energy, transport and land planning policies. One of Mr Juppé’s main priorities will be to work towards an international agreement to fight climate change. Also on his menu is a reform of the French taxation system along ecological lines. Let’s wait and see whether this superministery will get real powers and how it will co-exist with Sarkozy’s neoliberal economic reform plans. Read Le Monde and Nouvel Obs.
