Christian Estrosi calls for a rapprochement with The Republic running. In an interview with le Figaro published on Monday 31 August, the mayor of Nice has called his camp, the right, to pass "an agreement with Emmanuel Macron," in view of the presidential election of 2022, to the effect that such an agreement would be subject to conditions. "In order not to spoil all the talents of the right, let's get an agreement with Emmanuel Macron to be our common candidate for the presidential election and that they can participate in the recovery of our country ", explained Christian Estrosi.
No candidate "not obvious" to the right
"For me, this solution is the only way not to abandon our values and our ideas," says Christian Estrosi, stating that no candidate "may not be imposed naturally" to the right. This position of one of the tenors of the right comes as a number of senior Republicans are taking their brands to 2022 : Bruno Retailleau, Xavier Bertrand, Valérie Pécresse, or even François Baroin, who must clarify its intentions in the fall.
