Municipal in Paris : the debate between the candidates postponed to Thursday - The Point

due to the social movement in BFM TV, linked to an announcement of job cuts, the debate between the candidates for the Paris city Hall, which was to be held on Wednesday 24 June, is postponed to Thursday evening. Earlier in the day, the candidate PS to his re-election to the Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo has decided to abandon this debate, which was the object to Agnès Buzyn (LREM) and Rachida Dati (LR). Anne Hidalgo has asked " the string-to postpone the discussion, in order to respect the right to strike of its employees, that they can voice their demands, for their employment and for a quality information ".

"I called Rachida Dati and Agnès Buzyn to do the same," adds Anne Hidalgo, who received a delegation of the strikers to 15 hours. They " have chosen to exercise their right to strike ", a right "fundamental" and " I respect him ", she adds. For his part, "Agnes Buzyn is not going to participate in a debate in which three candidates are not present," responded to the Agency France-Presse, his director of communications, Gaspard Gantzer. "We are very committed to the right to strike and freedom of association, but we don't have to express ourselves on the internal organization of firms," he continued.
