With the reshuffle of the cabinet of President Sarkozy on 14 November 2010, our Maire,

It is not easy to remain at the pinnacle of power in the centralised French state. The more impressive that Armand Jean cardinal duc de Richelieu stayed at this sharp pinnacle for more than twenty years, albeit in the seventeenth century. But not so bad either for M. Novelli to be compared with his great predecessor.
