In the absence of another candidate “of weight” than Xavier Bertrand, some, on the right, will beg François Baroin. On the left, on the contrary, it is the overflow. In order to nibble the popularity of their comrade Yannick Jadot, some Greens multiply leftist gestures. After removing meat from school canteens (in order to please an electorate whom he had already flattered by laying the first stone of a mosque, while he refused to participate in the Christian ceremony celebrating the end of the epidemic plague of 1643?), the mayor of Lyon, Gregory Doucet, boasts of a high debt “less dangerous than the covid”. Will he thus win votes?
A sincere “regionalism”
In any case, Anne Hidalgo is threatened. Until then credited with 6% of the vote in the first round of the presidential election, the socialist mayor of Paris sinks in believing to please when she calls for three weeks of anti-covid confinement. Is she trying to get closer to the Greens, whom she pinned yesterday when they refused to baptize a street with the name of Professor Samuel Paty? Difficult, when we support the regional candidacy of Audrey Pulvar against the EELV Julien Bayou. So, Hidalgo displays a sincere “regionalism”. As proof: the Parisienne, daughter of Spanish immigrants raised in Lyon, will undertake a provincial tour, from Nancy to Rennes. Will she succeed in dethroning Jean-Luc Mélenchon? Weakened since his “blast of lead” in December 2018 against the prosecutor and the police, the leader of France rebellious, whose rating is still close to 10%, seeks to bounce back. He launches a T-shirt with the phrase that earned him so many taunts “The Republic, it’s me!” It might appeal to young people.
