The resumption of activity in bars and restaurants - which only terraces are allowed in Ile-de-France - will be a source of "tensions", fears candidate LR for mayor of Paris. On the Europe 1 antenna Monday morning, Rachida Dati deplores the management of deconfinement in the capital. Evoking a deconfinement "in an unequal way", she explains that she "would have liked that we could deconfinate for everyone".

The government has indeed provided that only the terraces of restaurants and cafes can reopen in Ile-de-France from Tuesday. And Anne Hidalgo announced on Saturday the possibility for these establishments to occupy part of the public space free of charge with their terraces.

"There is going to be a dispossession of the Parisian public space"

"We are going to deconfine the terraces but there was no anticipation, no organization (...) It was not concerted with the cafetiers, and even less with the residents, ”she pointed out, criticizing the outgoing mayor Anne Hidalgo. “Those who do not have a terrace will get on the sidewalks, even on the roadways, or the parking spaces (…) that will generate tensions between customers and residents, and also with pedestrians. There will be a dispossession of the Parisian public space ", continues the candidate. "If we only open the terraces, we will have places of fixation on these terraces and the public space which were already very tense," she added.

If she had been mayor of Paris, she assures that she would have "anticipated this organization from the first day (of confinement)". "I would have welcomed all the restaurateurs, hoteliers and merchants by giving them compensation measures," she explains and she would have pushed for a reopening "as much as possible. "The restaurateurs made proposals for a new organization of work, they were not heard or supported," she said.
