“We are reaching out, the state, to continue to support the region” led by the former LR candidate in the presidential election, the government spokesman said on Tuesday.



Government spokesperson Olivier Véran judged on Tuesday "

a bit big

" to hold the State responsible for a possible increase in the Pass Navigo, reminding Valérie Pécresse of the "

responsibilities

" and "

skills

" of the regions .

in terms of transportation.

The president (Les Républicains) of Ile-de-France said she was "

forced to submit

" at the beginning of December a "

socially unacceptable

" price increase of 20% of the Passe Navigo after the government's refusal to increase the "

mobility payment

" companies.

This is a local contribution from employers with more than 11 employees, collected by Urssaf in order to finance public transport in the regions, departments and municipalities.

Valérie Pécresse evokes in a letter of November 25 the possibility of a monthly increase of the Navigo to 90 euros, while the operating costs of regional transport fly away.

According to her, an increase in the contribution of the companies would make it possible to limit the tariff to 80 euros monthly, against 75 today.

"

Forgive me, but as it is a competence of the region, regional transport, and as it is a competence of the region to set prices, that a regional president considers it to be the fault of the State if it increases the prices of its own transport, it is as if I were telling you that it is the fault of the State if the price of the TV that I bought in a supermarket has increased

“, replied Olivier Véran during the report of the Council of Ministers.

"

It makes no sense

," insisted Olivier Véran.

"

We are reaching out, the State, to continue to support the region, to look with it if there are any difficulties to try to ensure that the increase in the price of transport tickets in Île-de-France does not weigh on the purchasing power of households and in particular of the working middle classes

”, continued the government spokesperson.

You know, it's a bit redundant, you had Anne Hidalgo a few weeks ago, who explained that it was the fault of the State if she increased her property tax by 50%, (and) Madame Pécresse who explains to you that it is the fault of the State if the price of the metro ticket is increased

".

"

+It's the fault of the State+,

“, he concluded.
