"Hand-sewn"

By allowing the creation of this entity of a new kind, welcomed Castex, the executive was able to "adapt, differentiate, make hand-sewn" - in short, stick as close as possible to local aspirations and needs. A way of seeing immediately opposed to "the creation of these immense regions, some of which have no historical legitimacy and, above all, do not seem to me to meet the growing needs of our fellow citizens for local public action". All of this, Castex said, "never convinced" him.

If the former president François Hollande, at the origin of their creation in 2015 , seems the first targeted, the blow also affects the regions themselves.
