MOSCOW, August 6 — RIA Novosti. More than 150 thousand Frenchmen signed a petition against granting the wife of the President, Brigitte macron official status of first lady, writes the Huffington Post.
During the election campaign Emmanuel macron argued that in case of victory his wife will play a “public role”, stressing that it “will not be paid from the taxpayer.” Now the question of the status of the first lady sent for consideration to the National Assembly of France, reminiscent of the Huffington Post.
In the text of the petition campaign organizer, Thierry Paul Valette, head of the public movement “National equality”, said that Brigitte Makron has two or three assistants, two secretaries and two members of security.

The text of the petition was posted by the initiators of the campaign on the website change.org. Document, gathered on Sunday more than 150 thousand signatures addressed to the President of the Emmanuel Macron and Prime Minister Edouard Philippe.
