Indeed, according to the list made public in the Official Journal, Saturday January 1, 2022, 547 Legion of Honor will be awarded during the year.

The name of the latter is likely to make a lot of talk. she was criticized by her positions and her statements at the very beginning of the health crisis. She was also indicted for “endangering the life of others”.

The personalities chosen to receive the highest French national distinctions are “famous or unknown to the general public“. They will be “divided into different ranks (knights, officers, commanders …)“, can we still read in the Official Journal. For this new promotion of decorated, the last of the quinquennium of Emmanuel Macrin, the public sector is widely rewarded since it represents 30% of those awarded. Bruno Lasserre, vice-president of the Council of State, will for example become a grand officer.

It is then the economic sector which is put forward with the medal awarded in particular to the cook Thierry Marx (officer). Culture is not forgotten either with the distinction offered to the composer and conductor Betsy Jolas, or Pap Ndiaye, who in 2021 took over the head of the French National Museum of the History of Immigration (Palais of the Porte Dorée in Paris).
