Here we go: seven months before the presidential election, the candidatures are becoming clearer and the strategies are being put in place. Although the left forces are stagnant at 30% in opinion, Anne Hidalgo launched Sunday from Rouen to make her image less “Parisian” but relying on regional and local elected representatives. Its slogan on “the French team of mayors” is in tune with the times, its desire to “build a more just France” is not eating up, its intention to increase salaries in a period when we Spending at all costs cannot harm him: in short, it is pure Hidalgo, smooth, full of good feelings but without any specific plan for the future. At a time when the Head of State has nationalized the economy by being more socialist than nature, while the debt is reaching peaks, the country is in the process of deindustrialization, one can hardly imagine how the mayor of Paris intends to stop the stalling of the French economy, apart from its desire for ecological transition. But Yannick Jadot exceeds her in the polls. No doubt it is necessary to refer to her controversial action in the capital to have an idea of ​​what this elected official who advances masked would do to power. While the first secretary of the PS Olivier Faure was ready to resolve to an ecological candidacy, the former Minister of Agriculture Stéphane Le Foll, who was the right arm of the PS of François Hollande, is the only one to ask for an internal debate on what still makes the specificity of Jaurès’ party. We will see in the coming weeks if “a return of enthusiasm, a dynamic” becomes clearer, as the PS mayor of Clermont-Ferrand, Olivier Bianchi, calls it. For the time being, Anne Hidalgo uses the quilt technique which has not been so successful for her in the past. But will the French be fooled?
