Almost half of the French, indifferent to the 2024 Paris Olympics


47% of the French are indifferent to the Olympic Games to be held in Paris in two years, while only 26% are interested, according to a survey published on Monday by “Le Parisien”.

In a survey by OpinionWay, in conjunction with a follow-up ministerial meeting on the Olympics chaired by the French president, Emmanuel Macron, it also indicates that 19% of the French are “uneasy” about the holding of this event and 7% ” impatient”.

Despite the chaos of the recent Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid, the majority of French (66%) believe that security is guaranteed at tests held in the French capital, including those in the State of France of Saint . -Denis, scene of the controversial decision of the Champions.

At the end of the meeting chaired by Macron on Monday, the president of the organizing committee, Tony Estanguet, said that they will launch exclusive electronic tickets to avoid counterfeit paper, one of the triggers of the chaos in the Champions League finals. .

Regarding the controversial opening ceremony in the center of Paris, on the banks of the Seine and where at least 600,000 people are expected, the French are in favor of 65%, despite the report of the French Court of Auditors.

This body, alarmed by the chaos at the Champions League final on May 28, has warned that the strengthening of security at that ceremony is very important, because, for the first time in the history of the Olympic Games, it will be held in an open space. And not in a closed room.

The French government announced today that between 7,000 and 11,000 police will be deployed each day -except for the opening of the Games- and there will also be around 17,000 private security agents each day.

Although the Executive has assured that there will be no skids in the budget for the Games, 40% of the French fear an increase in taxes to cover the event.

Also, the Olympic Games organization announced the schedule for the tests and the sale of 10 million tickets, which will be done in stages starting in December 2022.

To make the appointment accessible to the most people, 1 million of them will be at the low price of 24 euros and only 8% will be 200 euros or more. EFE
