“There are regular contacts but not only with Taubira,” indicates Willy Bourgeois, a close friend of Arnaud Montebourg. It is true that it is easier with her than with others, they are in the same logic of candidacy for union and common project. They met. But it’s not a question of time, there is a fight to be waged with others as well. “
On the side of Christiane Taubira, it is confirmed that there are “real discussions with Arnaud Montebourg” concerning a potential rallying. “The two personalities know each other well and appreciate each other, entrusts to the Parisian a member of his team. Taubira supported Montebourg during the primary on the left of 2011. Be careful, everything can still change. But Montebourg is currently negotiating the essential points of his own program that he would like to see included in that of Taubira. “
Since the beginning of December, the cantor of “Made in France” has remained withdrawn from the public debate after having called for “the unification of forces around a common candidate” on the left for the presidential election, saying he was “ready to offer his candidacy to a common project and candidate ”. Shortly after, Christiane Taubira, announced “consider” her candidacy for the presidential election of April 2022, but refused to be a candidate “more”.
Taubira candidate this weekend?
She said on Sunday that she would submit to the result of the Popular Primary, a citizens’ initiative that aspires to bring out a common candidacy on the left. The investiture of the device will be held from January 27 to 30, and has already registered 110,000 registrations to vote. Christiane Taubira could formalize her presidential candidacy this weekend, perhaps during a trip.
If she presents herself, she could find herself in direct competition with the candidate of the Socialist Party, Anne Hidalgo who has not closed the door to the recognition of “the popular nomination”, but on the condition that the environmental candidate Yannick Jadot do the same.
