During a press conference this Saturday at her campaign HQ, candidate LR in the presidential election blasted a “president who was tough with the weak and weak with the strong”.
A “ pile of renunciations ”
During her speech, Valérie Pécresse also denounced a “ chatty presidency ” with “ words without a future “And” broken promises “. If she is elected, the president of the Ile-de-France region wishes “ to fight (…) the accumulation of renouncements and inertias ” and to put an end to ” state powerlessness ”, a“ evil that is eating away at our country ”. According to her, if Emmanuel Macron did not succeed, it is also because he acted alone. “ The outgoing president has staged a solitary presidency disconnected from the deep aspirations and daily difficulties of the French “, she attacks. On the contrary, it wishes to rely on “ collective intelligence “. “ Neither egocentrism nor narcissism, I will not be a soloist president but a conductor “, she promises, insisting on her desire to give back “ from power to the territories ”.

According to her, the President of the Republic is “ hard with the weak and weak with the strong “.
It is “not the role” of elected LR officials to sponsor Éric Zemmour
Asked about the rumors that have been running for a few days, according to which LR would discreetly help Eric Zemmour by not sanctioning his elected officials who would grant him their sponsorship, the candidate said that it was “ not (his ) role ”nor that of LR elected officials to provide assistance to the nationalist. “ The elected Republicans bring their sponsorship to their candidate and must sponsor their candidate “, she ruled. However, Valérie Pécresse believes that when “u a political figure represents a current of thought, she must be able to present herself “. “ We must fight so that all those who do not think like us can say it “, she defends. And to add that for her, the question of the anonymity of the elected officials sponsoring the candidates – deleted during the mandate of François Hollande – “ arises “. “ When a certain number of mayors find themselves unable to sponsor the candidate of their political heart, it is problematic for democracy “, she concludes.
