France acts to sever old school tie of political elite

Amelia Gentleman in Paris
Thursday October 23, 2003
The Guardian

The far-reaching influence of France\'s unique finishing school for its political elite is set to crumble with the introduction of a series of reforms designed to inject a more egalitarian spirit into the powerful old boys\' network.
Under proposals presented yesterday to France\'s cabinet, the Ecole National d\'Administration, known as ENA, would be uprooted from its central Parisian home, conveniently close to the nation\'s key ministries, and shunted out to Strasbourg. Reformers also favour abolishing the guarantee of high-flying civil service posts for all graduates.

ENA grooms 120 future civil servants, politicians and business leaders every year and has educated two of France\'s last three presidents and six of its last eight prime ministers.

But the all-pervasive, exclusive nature of its influence sits uneasily with the current administration\'s commitment to governing for the people, not just for the elites. The prime minister, Jean-Pierre Raffarin - one of the few not to come from the ENA mould - set up a committee in February with instructions to propose wholesale reform.

The suggestions proffered yesterday come as part of a broader campaign to smooth out inefficiencies in France\'s civil service. ENA was founded by Charles de Gaulle in 1945 to train a small cadre of technocrats every year in how to run the country, and its tentacles run through all spheres of influence in France.

Enarques, as its students are known, are selected from within the civil service or picked from among the best students at the country\'s most academic universities, during a gruelling three-month entrance procedure which culminates in le grand oral - a 45-minute interview where questions on any imaginable subject will be fired at the candidate.

The top 20 graduates are automatically granted powerful positions at the summit of the civil service, without having to submit application forms or go through interviews; more junior posts are presented to those who do less well over the 27-month course.

No students have to look for jobs after the course, an ENA brochure explains - \"the jobs come to them\". Initially most graduates went straight into civil service positions, but increasingly they abandon the poorly-paid public sector to use their unrivalled training and impeccable connections to earn fortunes in business.

As well as President Jacques Chirac, former president Valéry Giscard d\'Estaing, and recent prime ministers Edouard Balladur, Michel Rocard, Alain Juppé, Laurent Fabius and Lionel Jospin, the enarques include Jean-Marie Messier, the disgraced former head of Vivendi Universal, and the EU\'s trade commissioner, Pascal Lamy.

But the enarques\' ubiquity has increasingly triggered resentment. An ENA official suggests that the school is a victim of its own success: \"Enarques are identified with politicians, bankers, and those who \'run France\' in the collective imagination. If something goes wrong somewhere, it must be traceable to an alumnus who made a mistake.\"

The government is determined to take firm action. \"No one today should feel like they own a position,\" the head of the reform committee, Jean-Paul Delevoye, said as he set out his determination to change the \"jobs for the boys\" principle governing the school. \"The employer should be able to recruit the most suitable student.\"

The proposal to relocate to Strasbourg, where the college already has premises, is partly justified as a cost-cutting measure, but is also a symbolic gesture from a government committed to decentralisation and to demonstrating that France is not ruled by metropolitan elites.

The reform committee\'s suggestion will be debated in parliament today.
