He had promised a “Remontada”, but Arnaud Montebourg should finally give up presenting his candidacy for the 2022 presidential election. He must take stock of his intentions via a speech made this morning at 11:30 a.m.
The news of this imminent withdrawal had been announced yesterday, Tuesday, by the France-Presse agency, which indicated that it was based on sources close to the candidate.
This Thursday morning, the former socialist minister of François confirmed a speech via his Twitter account.

On the other hand, according to the information available, no rallying announcement should be made.
After negotiations for several days with the communist Fabien Roussel and Christiane Taubira, these would have given nothing, and this in a “definitive” way, underlined those close to Arnaud Montebourg.
Although during his wishes for the year 2022, Arnaud Montebourg had promised “to count on him to take a unifying path”, this announcement of withdrawal would echo his message of December 8. Indeed, he had not hesitated to say he was “ready to offer his candidacy for a common project and a common candidate”.
