Christiane Taubira is officially a presidential candidate. She won the Popular Primary on Sunday, January 31, a victory that she conditioned on her continuation in the race for the Elysée.
The former Keeper of the Seals of François Hollande’s five-year term (2012-2016) now wants to try to unite the left. Otherwise it will only add one more candidacy to those of its competitors: Yannick Jadot (ecologist), Jean-Luc Mélenchon (LFI), Anne Hidalgo (PS), Fabien Roussel (PCF), etc. And so from the division to its political wing. A position for which she had been criticized in the 2002 presidential election: candidate of the Radical Left Party (PRG), she came thirteenth from the first, with 2.32% of the vote. The figure of the Socialist Party at the time, Lionel Jospin, also failed, with 16.18% of the vote, in favor of Jacques Chirac and Jean-Marie Le Pen in the second round.
