    This article would benefit from adding a few more sources. For example:
    – “fiscal policy” section. “policy being implemented is meant to reassure those who pay a higher band of income tax” — what is this policy? Lowering the taxes? Keeping them the same?
    – “modernising administration”: a link to Sarkozy’s and Hollande’s unfulfilled promises would be good
    – “Brexit”: a link to a statement about France’s view? Same with the statements about NATO.

      Hello Adam, thanks for the suggestion. I’ve added links on fiscal policy, administrative reform, Brexit, NATO.

    @Jack Barton, thank you for further editing. A remark, if I may: while the Reuters report dwells on the ‘high-risk’ programme President Macron pushed through the 2 houses sitting in congress, the notion of President Macron being ‘Jupiterian’ was written in The Guardian by Emmanuel Carrère who spent several days in the company of Macron in the Caribbean. May I suggest that you insert 2 links instead of 1, the high-risk aspect to the Reuters report, and the ‘Orbiting Jupiter’ piece to Carrère’s very interesting article in The Guardian? Thanks.

      Hi Jean-Jacques. Ok sure, our policy is to explicitly attribute the Guardian so I will add that.

    Not exactly “bias” but I would prefer statements like “the French economy was sluggish, social cohesiveness was low, and the general mood was downbeat” to have some sort of supporting evidence. Are there any surveys etc.?

      Hello Alan, thanks for your comment. I did not elaborate on some basic elements, which have been dealt with in many media reports over the past decade, and that is also true for the Macron presidency. More specifically to your point about surveys, a link is provided in the last chapter of this essay to data on the satisfaction rating of E. Macron. A general remark, if I may: as this is an essay, not a ”breaking news” or general reporting, I have tried to bring together a number of aspects which are often treated separately and in more detail.

    @Fapps and @Cassandra. I’m posting this remark again: Hello Staff, this piece was first reviewed by Burhan, and we had an exchange on this Talk page, but that seems to have been deleted. He had suggested deletion of subtitles, some improvements, and addition of links, all of which I carried out. Is Burhan still in charge of editing this, and if so, how come he can no longer be contacted here, nor on Slack? Otherwise, could editorial staff now clear this for publication, please?

    Done. Thank you Burhan.

    Hi Jean-Jacques, can you please review the piece one last time, and on your approval, I will publish it. Thank you.

    Hello Burhan, last night (Wednesday), I made the suggested changes, added links and deleted section sub-titles. But then this afternoon I discovered some of that work disappeared, for instance the section sub-titles have come back. Also, our exchanges on this Talk page have vanished. Could you give me an idea of when you might finish editing and clear this for publication? Thanks.
