Affaire Mathieu Gallet : le gouvernement dans une position délicate

Mathieu Gallet le président de Radio France sera-t-il démis de ses fonctions

Mathieu Gallet le président de Radio France sera-t-il démis de ses fonctions

Ce dernier avait été condamné le 15 janvier pour "favoritisme" lorsqu'il dirigeait l'Institut national de l'audiovisuel (INA). Se pose alors la question de sa légitimité au poste de PDG des antennes de Radio France. Cet appel sera suspensif. Elle a estimé qu'une procédure disciplinaire peut être indépendante de la procédure pénale: ainsi l'employeur ne méconnaît pas la présomption d'innocence (Cour de cassation, Chambre sociale, 13 décembre 2017). C'est lors des questions libres, que le président de Radio France aurait donné des réponses peu satisfaisantes aux yeux des conseillers. Mais il est fort d'une paix sociale retrouvée et d'un bilan solide, avec des finances qui devraient revenir à l'équilibre cette année et des audiences record (26,3% de PDA lors de la dernière vague de Médiamétrie septembre-décembre 2017). Pour Catherine Morin-Desailly, présidente de la commission de la Culture, de l'Education et de la Communication du Sénat, la décision du CSA " a pour mérite de réaffirmer l'exigence d'exemplarité des dirigeants de l'audiovisuel public et de protéger l'entreprise, à un moment où l'attention de son président est mobilisée par les nécessités de sa défense ". " Le temps d'ouvrir les candidatures et de procéder aux différentes auditions contradictoires, la procédure pourrait s'étendre jusqu'en juillet ", souligne André Gattolin, co-auteur d'un rapport sénatorial sur la réforme de l'audiovisuel. "Ma responsabilité, c'est l'indépendance du CSA", a martelé son président il y a quelques jours. Mathieu Gallet avait fait appel de sa condamnation mais le CSA n'a pas attendu la décision de la cour pour statuer. Après le prononcé de cette sentence, le gouvernement avait réclamé son départ, mais Mathieu Gallet refusait de l'envisager. Puis une période de tuilage est prévue par la loi, de l'ordre de trois mois. En attendant, le doyen des administrateurs de Radio France nommés par le CSA assurera l'intérim à partir du 1er mars.

La ministre de la Culture Françoise Nyssen avait jugé inacceptable son maintien à la tête du groupe public de radios. Avec la concertation menée avec les entreprises, elles sont censées alimenter un futur projet de loi, qui sera présenté en conseil des ministres fin 2018, selon le calendrier fixé par Emmanuel Macron.

"Le SNJ demande l'interruption des discussions sur l'avenir de l'audiovisuel public jusqu'à ce que Radio France ait retrouvé un dirigeant légitime, aucun intérimaire ne pouvant raisonnablement engager l'avenir et l'existence même de l'entreprise", ajoute-t-il.
