Who will be the Republican candidate for the 2022 presidential election? In an attempt to convince voters, the five candidates for the LR nomination will defend their ideas, this Sunday evening, November 21, during a debate broadcast live on CNEWS and simultaneously on Europe 1.
Broadcast from 8:50 p.m. on both antennas, and moderated by Laurence Ferrari and Sonia Mabrouk, this debate promises to be decisive for Michel Barnier, Xavier Bertrand, Eric Ciotti, Philippe Juvin and Valérie Pécresse.
The date of December 4, when the members of the Republicans will nominate the future LR candidate for the presidential election, is indeed getting closer and closer.
In this context, everyone will be keen to present their project for France, and to persuade as many people as possible of their capacity to occupy the supreme office.
Three major themes
To get a clearer picture, this Sunday’s debate will focus on three main themes: “The security of the French”, “Which France for tomorrow?” and finally “French money”.
The exchanges of “Élysée 2022: the great debate of the Republicans”, official title of the program, will also be to follow on the social networks via the hashtag #DebateLR.

A top trio to decide
Less than two weeks before the decisive congress, Xavier Bertrand is still in the lead in his camp according to the latest polls. According to the last wave of OpinionWay’s “PrésiTrack” for CNEWS, published Thursday, November 18, he is indeed credited with 13% of the voting intentions in the first round, in a configuration where the polemicist Eric Zemmour would also be a candidate. In this same configuration, if it is Valérie Pécresse who is designated candidate LR, she would collect 11% of the votes. Michel Barnier, he appears as the third man with 9% of the voting intentions.

But before the vote of the French, it is indeed the sympathizers of the Republicans who must first pronounce themselves during the congress. However, if we are to believe the latest Ipsos-Le Point barometer, it is a dynamic Michel Barnier that would be felt in the ranks of the right-wing party.
In his political family, the former European commissioner in charge of the Brexit negotiations would have benefited from a strong increase in recent weeks, garnering 58% of support, against 57% for Valérie Pécresse and 56% for Xavier Bertrand. All these elements are part of a battle of ideas that will make tonight’s debate interesting to follow and analyze.
