If Michel Barnier evokes loyalty, Valérie Pécresse, another candidate for the nomination of the right, also sends a message to Xavier Bertrand. Before the latter announces his decision in the 20H of TF1 this Monday evening, the president of the Ile-de-France region calls for “unity”. In an interview with Le Figaro, she said: “We need a single candidate to win. I want unity and I have been playing collectively from the start. The Republicans have set the rules of the game that I respect. We must comply with them. “

On December 4, LR activists must vote to choose their champion at a Congress.

The president of the Hauts-de-France Region Xavier Bertrand will be the exceptional guest of the 8 p.m. Journal of TF1 this Monday evening, while he has not yet registered his participation in the Congress of Republicans which should allow activists to appoint the candidate of the right and the center for the presidential election. The deadline for submitting applications is Wednesday.

The Republicans have set the rules of the game that I respect. We must comply with them. “

On December 4, LR activists must vote to choose their champion at a Congress.

Two days before the deadline for submitting candidatures, Xavier Bertrand will say this evening if he participates in the congress which will appoint the candidate of the right and the center for the presidential election, alongside Valérie Pécresse and Michel Barnier.

The president of the Hauts-de-France Region Xavier Bertrand will be the exceptional guest of the 8 p.m. Journal of TF1 this Monday evening, while he has not yet registered his participation in the Congress of Republicans which should allow activists to appoint the candidate of the right and the center for the presidential election. The deadline for submitting applications is Wednesday.

Six months before the ballot, all the aspiring presidents of the Republic are looking for their 500 sponsorships, a necessary condition for participation in the presidential election.

Michel Barnier, who is applying for the right-wing investiture for the presidential election, invited Xavier Bertrand to participate in the LR congress which must nominate the candidate, making it a “question of loyalty and mutual trust”. “All those who have the ambition to carry the project that we have and which corresponds to what the French expect (…) must respect the rules of the game which were chosen by the militants, it is a question of loyalty and mutual trust, “said the former European Brexit negotiator on BFMTV.

The deadline for submitting applications for the December 4 congress is Wednesday and Xavier Bertrand, ex-LR president of the Hauts-de-France region, has not yet confirmed his participation. He pleaded for a “rally” congress implicitly behind him.

TF1 went to meet certain supporters of Eric Zemmour to try to explain their fascination with the polemicist, yet still not officially a candidate, but already announced as one of the great figures of the upcoming presidential election.

According to an Ifop Fiducial poll for Sud Radio published this morning, if Éric Zemmour was a candidate, and Xavier Bertrand candidate from the right, the first would collect 14% of the vote, the second 16% (tied with Marine Le Pen) in the first round of the presidential election. Outgoing President Emmanuel Macron would gather a quarter of the vote (25%).

Contrary to an investigation published last week qualifying him in the second round, the polemicist would be here only the fourth man. This poll confirms, however, the loss of speed of the candidate of the National Rally, tied with the president of Hauts-de-France. On the other hand, it confirms that Xavier Bertrand is ahead of his competitors from the right and from the center, since Valérie Pécresse would only collect 11% of the votes in the first round.

The president of Hauts-de-France has still not said what he wanted to do at the Congress of Republicans on December 4. The presidential candidate always leaves the mystery hanging over his participation, or not, in this meeting which must determine who of Valérie Pécresse, Michel Barnier, Eric Ciotti, Philippe Juvin, will be the champion of the right and the center.

“We must not divide the forces of the national camp. (…) To fight between us does not make any sense”, declared Sebastien Chenu, deputy RN of the North on franceinfo. “We only have an opponent Emmanuel Macron”, “gravedigger of the national interest”, argued the spokesperson for the RN, considering Eric Zemmour “ideologically” close to the RN.

The RN mayor of Perpignan, Louis Aliot, sees in Eric Zemmour “the novelty in the political system”, which he also judges to be “in the same political family” as the RN. “But today it is dividing the national family,” he lamented on CNews.

“When we start to divide the French or to distinguish the citizens according to their race or their identity. It ends in tensions. People are already too back to back in our country. We need a president who is credible, who brings solutions “, estimated this Monday morning Michel Barnier, questioned on the probable candidacy of the polemicist.

Michel Barnier denounces the “double game” of Edouard Philippe. On BFMTV this Monday, the candidate for the LR nomination tackled the ex-prime minister: “He says interesting but surprising things which show a double game. We must put the streets in order and in the finances. Ca means there is disorder. Why would we keep the same president then? “

“He said ‘I want to make a new political offer’ when he was Prime Minister for three years. So why maintain the same president? There is a kind of club around a man,” said Michel Barnier.

The ex-PS presidential candidate Arnaud Montebourg intends to work for the recomposition of the left and to build a “rally” potentially going “from the Gaullists to the Communists”, while also distinguishing himself from Jean-Luc Mélenchon, considered “too sectarian”, that of the extreme right.

“We must build a sort of new formula National Council of Resistance, given the risks weighing on our nation, ranging from Gaullists to Communists. It will be built in the countryside”, pleaded Sunday Arnaud Montebourg, who calls for “to open up” and not to remain “sectarian”.

The former Minister of Productive Recovery under François Hollande, who launched himself outside the party, wants to “propose a vision of the country which is new, which has never been really defended on the left, except at a certain time by Jean-Pierre Chevènement “, a former minister who is at the same time republican, social and sovereignist.

“The ecological, climatic and sovereignty issues which are before us oblige us to restructure the vision that the left has always had”, insists Mr. Montebourg.

LFI leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon “cannot win, this is one of the reasons why I am a candidate,” argues the one who is credited with 2 to 4% of voting intentions in the latest polls.

“The proposal I am formulating is a unifying proposal. His is unfortunately excessively radical and sectarian,” he said.

The presidential election is in six months, but tensions are already high against an Eric Zemmour who takes the opportunity to occupy the field. The polemicist would for the first time be qualified in the second round against Emmanuel Macron with 17 to 18% of the voting intentions, according to a poll. Marine Le Pen tried Sunday to mark his difference from his potential competitor in 2022 Eric Zemmour, by highlighting “his greater social sensitivity” and accusing him of neglecting the “end of the month of the French”.

Otherwise, the question arises for Emmanuel Macron who is still not declared: which campaign for which project? If he is the favorite in the polls, the Head of State is facing an unprecedented political situation with uncertain opponents, so many traps for those who again intend to advocate “overtaking” to get re-elected and who can count, now, on “Horizons”, the political movement launched Saturday by Edouard Philippe.

Faced with this breakthrough, the right is advancing in the fog, entangled in the endless process of appointing its candidate. Environmentalists, socialists and rebels are still competing for the leadership of a left which weighs less than 30% in the polls, several officials nevertheless hoping for alliances by February. Seven candidates are advancing for the time being on the starting line, if we retain only those who have a chance to collect the 500 sponsorships: the Insoumis Jean-Luc Mélenchon (fourth in 2017 with 19.58% of the votes). ), the ecologist Yannick Jadot, the socialist Anne Hidalgo, the communist Fabien Roussel, the champion of reindustrialisation Arnaud Montebourg, and the anti-capitalists Philippe Poutou and Nathalie Arthaud.
