Is France's new president getting too powerful? Before flying to Estonia for an EU summit, Emmanuel Macron posed with police as parliament works on a bill to permanently give them enhanced search and seizure powers - powers granted after the Paris attacks. The idea is to enshrine parts of the ongoing state of emergency into common law. Meanwhile, Macron has made good on his campaign promise to bypass parliament and enact controversial labour reforms by decree. So does he have too much power?
