Northern candidate Gerald Darmanin, Bruno Le Maire and Eric Dupond-Moretti, who did not attend applications.
The Minister of the Interior announced his candidacy on the 10thi northern constituency, where Emmanuel Macron came out on top with 57.2% of the vote in the second round of the presidential election and which includes part of the city of Tourcoing, of which he was mayor. “It was pretty logical that after five years I wouldn’t hide, that I was going to see the voters.”said Mr. Darmanin during a press conference in Bousbecque (North).
His deputy will be outgoing MP Vincent Ledoux, a member of the pro-Macron Agir right-wing party, who could hold his chair if Mr Darmanin were elected and re-elected to government. Potential candidate Les Républicains (LR) for the constituency, Claudine Hue, present at the press conference, announced that she would “sustain” the Minister of the Interior, from the right.
While still a member of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP), Mr Darmanin was elected in 2012 to the same constituency. He resigned in January 2016, due to multiple terms, following the victory of Xavier Bertrand in the regional elections of the High of France. He then became vice-president of the regional executive, until his appointment to the first government of Edouard Philippe in 2017 and his membership in La République en Marche (LRM).
Bruno Le Maire pledges to remain “fully committed to national politics”
Another heavyweight in the government, Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire, announced on Thursday in Evreux that he would not run in the June 12 and 19 legislative elections. “I have always said that I would not serve more than three terms. I keep my promises “, he said during a press conference. Also coming from the right, the 53-year-old had been elected first deputy of the 1stD Eure constituency in 2007 under the UMP seal. Re-elected in 2012, he retained the constituency in 2017, this time by LRM.
The minister assured that it still remained “Fully committed to national politics”. “Since 2017 I have been participating in government action under the authority of the President of the Republic. Along with all the other members of the majority, I mobilized for his re-election. I deeply believe in the values and the project that the President of the Republic defended in 2022 and which won the majority approval of the French and French.he argued Thursday morning.
“Political life needs clarity and change in its practices”and a constituency “It is not a right or a pension: it imposes duties, including giving way to new or different personalities”he also loved Bruno Le Maire, before stating that he would chair the support committee of his successor, his deputy Séverine Gipson, 51, who has held the benches of the National Assembly since the appointment of Mr. Mayor in government.
Same option for Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti, who will not be running in the North. The guardian of the seals “does not intend to seek a mandate as a deputy in the North”explained his surroundings to the Agence France-Presse, while political indiscretions evoked a candidacy in the 15thi constituency of this department from which it originated, won in 2017 by Jennifer de Temmerman (ex-LRM).
According to information from World, Richard Ferrand (LRM), François Bayrou (MoDem) and Edouard Philippe (Horizons) will offer a joint press conference this Thursday afternoon at 3 p.m. They will present their confederation project, bringing together the three parties, for the legislative elections.
Still according to our information, La République en Marche has an executive position at 12.30 pm to ratify the first investitures of the majority, which will then be announced at the end of the day.
