Jean Castex indicated that the LREM list in PACA for the regional ones would withdraw in favor of that of the outgoing president of the region Renaud Muselier (LR). If the Prime Minister mentioned a merger of the lists, Renaud Muselier did not comment.
Prime Minister Jean Castex announced on May 2 the withdrawal from the LREM list in the first round of regional elections in Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, in favor of the outgoing LR president of the region, Renaud Muselier, in an interview with JDD.
The Secretary of State in charge of the disabled Sophie Cluzel, leader designated by LREM in the region “and representatives of the parliamentary majority will integrate the device led by Renaud Muselier”, specified the head of government, implying that the two lists could merge. Contacted by AFP, Renaud Muselier refused to confirm this merger of the two lists, contenting himself to “take note” and “to welcome the announcement of the Prime Minister”.
