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.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
