President of the regional council of Ile-de-France, Valerie Pecresse, officially announced yesterday her bid for the presidential nomination of the centre-right Gaullist Les Republicains (LR).

  • Announcing her candidacy in Le Figaro, Pecresse stated that "I want to put the country back in order. In 2022, France must start anew. This summer, I will travel the country to meet the French people in order to enrich my project,"
  • Running under her own centre-right party - Soyons Libres - Pecresse has served as head of the regional capital of the French capital, Paris, since 2015. Prior to this she served as a Cabinet member and spokesperson for the gov't of former President Nicolas Sarkozy.
  • Pecresse has her work cut out in winning the LR nomination. The frontrunner at present is President of the Regional Council of Hautes-de-France Xavier Bertrand. In the latest opinion poll carried out on 27 June, Bertrand gained 20% support in a hypothetical first round election, compared to 12% of Pecresse. There is also the struggle of ensuring a primary election, with Bertrand's supporters arguing his strong lead in polls should allow for his nomination to be decided by senior party figures to avoid a potentially bitter primary.
  • Incumbent President Emmanuel Macron and right-wing National Rally leader Marine Le Pen remain the frontrunners to make the second round run-off of the spring 2022 presidential election.
