“I am a candidate for the presidency of the republic”, officially announced the former minister of François Hollande during a militant rally for the union of the left, in the Croix-Rousse district of Lyon, a symbolic choice in a nod to the Canuts, the former workers of this silk district.

Submission to the popular primary

The former presidential candidate of 2002 (2, 32%) promised to submit to the citizens’ initiative of the popular primary, an “investiture” by left-wing voters -120.000 registered to vote-, whatever the result.

Even if her supporters pretend to believe that nothing is won, she is the favorite of this consultation, d as much as the other left-wing candidates whose names will also be proposed in this ballot on Saturday have all refused to submit to it, Anne Hid algo (PS) in the lead. The mayor of Paris must also speak at the beginning of the afternoon to react to the declaration of Christiane Taubira, who will be the guest of the JT of 20 hours of France 2 .
