In a video posted on his social media for New Year’s Eve, Socialist Party leader Olivier Faure confronts Emmanuel Macron in a party of “Macronpoly”, a parody inspired by the famous board game. A humorous and quirky wink to show that the Union of the left will always be present.
If Emmanuel Macron bowed to the exercise of the traditional presidential address on the evening of December 31, he is not the only one to have translated his wishes to the French on this last day of the year 2022. opposition have in turn presented their wishes on their social networks or even their websites. On the side of the Socialist Party, on the other hand, the leaders of the PS have decided to stage the first secretary Olivier Faure in an unpublished clip.

A parody of the board game
In this three-minute video, Olivier Faure faces Emmanuel Macron in a game of political Monopoly, nicknamed for the occasion “Macronpoly”. Each case visited by the Head of State thus corresponds to a measure he has taken and each time, it is immediately countered by the proposals of the first secretary of the PS. For example, when Emmanuel Macron lands on the box drop in unemployment compensation, Olivier Faure responds with a revaluation of the minimum wage to €1,500.
A little later, in the box “Exemplary Republic”, the socialist cuts down cards Alexandre Benalla, Nicolas Hulot or Damien Abad. After being blocked by a 49.3 and tearing up the pension reform card, it was finally Olivier Faure’s Union of the Left and Ecologists who ended the game and finished off the president.
Emmanuel Macron then suffered a final tackle: he received an SMS from Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne notifying him of his McKinsey appointment, alluding to the controversy over the government’s excessive use of the consulting firm.
