Proposition to make Corsican the official language of Corsica rejected

Tuesday, July 28, 2009


You can read the article in French here (it's from 21 July). The proposition was rejected with 28 opposed and 19 for, on the grounds that 1) Corsican isn't spoken by enough people properly yet to make it the official language, and 2) considering this, Corsica shouldn't rush to stir up trouble with the central French government.

Sellamat Dave !

Indeed, as long as French is not suppressed as a official language itself, it would not be impossible to make Corsican a co-official language (f.e. Tahitian is co-official in French Polynesia). The real problem must be of a political nature between the Corsican politicians (more or less corrupt, more or less mafiosi...)
