|Title:||Should 'Première Dame' be a formal job title?|
|Series/Date:||Debates August 2017|
|Source Origin:||Professional/public/political organisation|
|Source Type:||Background, News source|
|Notes:||In his 2017 Presidential election campaign French President Emmanuel Macron promised to give official status to the role played by the president's wife. Anything else would be 'hypocritical' in view of the public role that this position entails.
However, in August 2017 he scrapped the plan in the face of a petition against the move. European media commentators ask whether he was too quick to abandon a good idea?
