The strategy is the same as that of Emmanuel Macron. Prime Minister Elisabeth Bornewent, by surprise, to a market in Poissy (Yvelines) this Friday morning shortly after 10 a.m.
After Macron’s surprise visit to Dole yesterday, Borne is doing the same this morning: before her trip to the Safran factory in Yvelines, she will go with Gabriel Attal to a market in Poissy. information @the Parisian

An impromptu visit before a planned trip with Olivier Dussopt, the Minister of Labour, to Safran Landing Systems in Vélizy-Villacoublay, in the same department. The two members of the government are supposed to address the subject of the employment of seniors, which is particularly delicate since the measures on the subject included in the pension reform have been challenged by the Constitutional Council.
In the footsteps of Macron
During her stroll through the Poissy market, the head of government exchanged a few words, calmly, with customers and traders. Elisabeth Borne essentially found herself facing support from the majority, who notably congratulated her on her work.
The day before, Emmanuel Macron had also offered himself a surprise walkabout on the Dole market (Doubs), in order to show that he continued to come into contact with the French despite the promulgation of the unpopular pension reform.
The executive therefore seems to have adopted this strategy, which allows it to circumvent boos and pot concerts organized on the fringes of all government travel planned in advance.
