In an interview with the weekly magazine Paris-Match thats due to appear in shops from Thursday, Domenique de Villepin recognizes that he "wanted to move quickly" on the contract first engages (CPE). "Now, it is necessary that I explain and convince. I will do it until the end because I believe in this policy", declares it. These remarks, made last Friday, lie within the a report covering several weeks devoted to the Prime Minister. Villepin, wishes "that one does not forget that I was already the Prime Minister at the time of the crisis of the suburbs" last November, estimates that "in politics, one receives many blows " and that it "is necessary to know how to box".
