French President Emmanuel Macron has approved a new €1billion trial that will make national service mandatory for 16-year-olds.

Macron has approved the scheme which will see 3,000 boys and girls join the Universal National Service scheme’s test run in June.

The new service is said to be more stringent compared to the one the President promised back in his 2017 election campaign, according to The Times.

Macron was a candidate for former President Jacques René Chirac’s original national service scheme.

Boasting about his 're-vamp' Macron announced:

“Each young French person will experience military life, even briefly, to allow our democracy to be more united and increase the resilience of our society.”

The French army has criticized the scheme already, calling it a costly distraction from their job.

In response, Macron approved a month-long hybrid civilian-military service that launches with two weeks of compulsory residence on military grounds.

French teenagers will be issued uniforms and drilled in exercises, which includes saluting the French flag.

The junior education minister said: “This moment of republican communion is important.

“I have found in my contacts with the young an attachment to the symbols of the republic, which has doubtless been reinforced by the terrorist attacks of 2015.”

The teenagers drafted will consist of a mixed class of recruits.

Macron’s government stated they want social mixing that they believe to be one of the principal benefits of the national military service.

When the teenager's reach 18, they will be encouraged to join the military permanently.

Macron hopes that he will have more than 800,000 teenagers recruited by the year 2024

But it doesn't come cheap; the trial will cost one billion Euros every year.

But the French President's original plan was condemned in a Senate report as a “colossal effort regarding human resource, which we fear would absorb the energy of the armed forces.”

Macron recently deployed riot police armed with "anti-terrorist" semi-automatic assault rifles, using live ammunition, to deal with the Yellow Vests protesters on the streets of France. 

Officers were filmed brandishing the deadly weapons by Arc de Triomphe in Paris on Sunday, as Macron's law and order crisis spirals out of control.

Anti-terror police were deployed carrying Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifles by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris on Saturday afternoon during at a demonstration by unarmed French citizens against President Macron's globalist policies.
