Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
is that the man/woman ratio is calculated only on the 15 'ministres', and not on the overall government. I understand Sarkozy trying this, but why do the media let him get away with it?

Do you mean TF1 who's new #2 was Sarkozy's campaign boss? France television, headed by Carolis who got his job because he had made a nice documentary about the First Lady, Bernadette Chirac ? Le Monde which is ultimately headed by Alain Minc, über member of the vast Conservative Neo Liberal Blood Sucking conspiracy ? The numerous Lagardère-who-witnessed-on-our-new-President-wedding?

Yeah, I wonder, too.

Also, on the whole that government is very, very traditional. All tendencies of the majority are carefully represented, a couple "new and amazing" minister to have press articles but very bigwigs in the other important positions...

According to Le Monde today, it seems the former UDF centrists and liberals who joined the UMP in 2002 complained and threatened to form an independant group at the National Assembly from the UMP, which is why they got good representation in the government.
