POLICY – Will the leak continue? After the mayor of Toulon, Hubert Falco, Christian Estrosi announces that he is leaving Les Républicains. The mayor of Nice, former minister of Nicolas Sarkozy, explains this Thursday, May 6 to Le Figaro wanting to “ensure (his) total freedom of speech”, after the psychodrama in his political family around the true-false alliance between LREM and Renaud Muselier in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur for the next regional ones.

Scratching “the drift of a faction that seems to have taken the leadership of the party hostage”, he now pleads for “to reconstitute a large modern political formation to unite people of the right and the center around a real project.”

“Leaving my party is a painful decision for the Gaullist that I am,” explains Christian Estrosi for whom “the limits of what is acceptable have been crossed” after the – sometimes violent – exchanges that have punctuated the last meetings of Republicans. “I had never suffered such violence in my party,” he said again, taking as an example the qualifier “evil” used against him and Hubert Falco.
