Hidalgo and Transportation at the Olympics, Episode 2. A week after her controversial outing on the set of Quotidien, the mayor of Paris was questioned again on the issue this Wednesday during the press briefing to present the security system around the 2024 Olympic Games. "You love controversy. I don't give a damn," she replied dryly.

Anne Hidalgo had indicated on the set of the program "Quotidien" of TMC that the transports would not be "ready" for the deadline of the Games, arousing the anger of the minister dedicated to this subject Clément Beaune, the Minister of Sports and Olympic Games, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra as well as the president of the Ile-de-France region, Valérie Pécresse. "We work very, very well together," the PS mayor reaffirmed on Wednesday.

"We chose to be transparent"

As far as transport is concerned, Anne Hidalgo has repeatedly said that there is "still work to be done". "We're going to have to do it. I'm just hearing and taking public transport. I'm a user. We have chosen to be transparent. We're not jumping in and saying: everything is easy, everything is ready, everything is finished. We're telling the truth. We don't just observe and denounce, but we work on it," explained the mayor of the capital.

Anne Hidalgo is in turmoil with this new controversy. Before the Olympics were transported, Anne Hidalgo had been criticised by her opposition for a trip, both official and private, to Tahiti, where she took part in working meetings on the Games, whose surfing event takes place on the waves of this Pacific island, without going to the competition site.
