LR: candidates have displayed their ambitions in front of party officials

While waiting for the third debate broadcast this Sunday, November 21 at 8:50 p.m. on CNEWS, the five candidates for the nomination of the Republicans (LR) for the presidential election, met today in front of the National Council of Republicans in order to defend their program.

It was in Issy-les-Moulineaux, on the stage of the Palais des Congrès that the candidates Michel Barnier, Xavier Bertrand, Valérie Pécresse, Philippe Juvin and Eric Ciotti, followed one another. Faced with the 700 registered people and the leaders of their party, including the leader Christian Jacob who had promised “listening and respect”, the five members tried to convince those “who will campaign”, as underlined by number two LR , Annie Genevard.

The latter welcomed this exercise of great oral which remains “different but completely complementary” to the televised debates, in which are generally privileged the regalien as well as the purchasing power, regretting that the questions related to the health, the culture, or even education, are not sufficiently addressed. “We also have things to say” defended Ms. Genevard.

Unanimous against Emmanuel Macron

Basically, not really anything new was observed, in particular the reproaches of the five candidates towards Emmanuel Macron. Indeed, Xavier Bertrand who offers a program based on authority, territory and work, did not hesitate to label the latter as a “gravedigger”, while Michel Barnier judged “the management of power, of solitary, arrogant and sometimes contemptuous ”on the part of the French president.

Moreover, contrary to this policy, Michel Barnier has let it be known that he undertakes to hold “a clear course” around three main priorities which are according to him: “electroshock of authority, halt to the immigration and serious budget ”.

Like her rivals at the time, Valérie Pécresse was very critical of Emmanuel Macron and believes “that he burned the fund and made a hold-up on their ideas”. To support her speech, she does not hesitate to highlight her experience acquired at the head of Ile-de-France and promises “a fight against medical desertification and against dropping out of school”.

Two points on which Philippe Juvin joined him, in addition to pleading for “an end to the disorder”, particularly migration. However, he stands out by claiming to want to work in the development of Africa.

Eric Ciotti, for his part, is the most right-wing of all with his “French renaissance project”, somewhat reminiscent of François Fillon’s policy, with the three pillars based on “authority, identity and freedom”.
