The Presidents of the Fifth Republic : Jacobins or Girondists ?

More than any other, the question of decentralization is quintessentially political, and the competences granted to the regions have varied, sometimes significantly, according to which party was in power. Declared “indivisible”, until the upcoming and probable independence of New Caledonia and without forgetting the constitutionalizing of its “decentralized” organization, the Fifth Republic can also be described through the history of the relationship between the centre and the regions. The centuries-old opposition between Jacobins and Girondists, even deprived of its revolutionary meaning, seems to have survived. A chronological approach to this great narrative allows us to see where each of the eight presidents have stood and to understand more clearly the “Girondist pact” which should be reflected in the next constitutional revision.
