Monday February 4th
French President Emmanuel Macron is set to visit the Essonne department in the greater Paris region of Ile-de-France as part of his national consultation (Grand Débat) tour.
The French leader will meet elected representatives from the region and local associations
The debate was launched in January in the hope of quelling months of anti-government unrest on the streets.
The defamation case brought by former MP Denis Baupin against media organisations Médiapart and France Inter is set to begin on Monday.
Baupin was accused of sexual harassment back in 2016 when he was deputy parliamentary speaker and launched legal action against his accusers.
