The Minister of Culture took note of the first instance decision of the Court of Créteil against the President of Radio France, Mathieu Gallet, for events dating back to 2012 to 2014, when he was President of the National Audiovisual Institute.

The Minister of Culture reaffirms her commitment to respecting the rules of public procurement and to exemplifying the leadership of institutions and public companies. These demands are the indispensable foundation of the confidence of our fellow citizens in public action.

The current law gives the Superior Council of Broadcasting the sole power to appoint and dismiss the mandates of the directors of public broadcasting companies.

The ongoing reflection on the transformation of public broadcasting foresees the evolution of the methods of appointment, with the objective of guaranteeing the independence of the media, while reinforcing the responsibility of the directors before their board of directors.
