National Council President Stephane Valeri received Minister of State Serge Telle in a first official meeting to discuss important matters in the context of the relationship between the Government and the elected assembly.
It comes just a few days after the first session of the newly elected National Council.
The absolute priority for the new majority is the question of housing. Mr Valeri and Mr Telle will very soon discuss the subject in a full special assembly of Council members, meeting in a Plenary Study Session.
Among the projects on the agenda will be the potential for housing for Monegasques, including in a new commercial centre in Fontvieille. The provision of accommodation for Monegasques in all parts of the Principality is a major preoccupation for the new National Council.
Mr Valeri also asked that the National Council be kept fully informed, as an institutional partner, in every stage of the ongoing negotiations with the European Union.
The meeting, which lasted for more than an hour and a half, also touched on the question of the National Council’s vision for a public and pluralist television service, and on the opening of a debate on the monopoly of Monaco Telecom.
Victims of domestic violence will now be able to seek help at pharmacies in Monaco, as authorities ramp up measures to protect vulnerable women during lockdown.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
