A relative of the two men died : "But that is what they are going to do in this galley. They are going to defend a candidate burned that is going to end up charred!" Gaspard Gantzer, and Pierre-Yves Bournazel, however, have accepted the mission. Saving the campaign paris, Agnès Buzyn before the second round of municipal scheduled on June 28. The candidate LREM has promoted Tuesday morning the first as the communication manager and the second as a spokesperson. The objective is clear : to forget about the candidate in mid-march in the World, and refocus on the program. The former Health minister had explained to the evening news to have prevented the executive from the month of January of the epidemic wave that would break on France. And had qualified the holding of the first round on march 15 "charade"... The controversy has been such that the candidate has been reluctant to the end to maintain his candidacy."I know the difficulties"
"there has been a lot of unfair attacks. Agnès Buzyn will finally be able to explain", stresses Gaspard Gantzer prior to the interview of the candidate, in the Figaro, unveiled this on Wednesday night. The communicator, the short-lived candidate for mayor, has seen other. Between 2014 and 2017, it has been the communications adviser of François Hollande at the Elysée palace. Suffice to say that in catch-up as a troubleshooter, the man knows... But with Agnès Buzyn, the challenge seems even greater. With the health crisis that never ends, it's hard to turn the page of polemics. In fact, it is necessary to rethink, redefine a strategy. All in only a month... "I know the difficulties, I'll offer my experience. I think that it is necessary to be pragmatic, to be truthful, and above all to talk about the project," says Gaspard Gantzer, who was also, between 2010 and 2013, communications advisor and spokesperson of Bertrand Delanoë, former mayor socialist of the capital (2001-2014). He knows how to twist the political machine in paris.
Appointed spokesman, Pierre-Yves Bournazel admits it willingly be on the "front lines" of this rescue. The member of parliament of the 18th arrondissement, also advisor of Paris for more than ten years, going to his side to rush headlong into the media. Her calendar is already filled with early morning and interviews with journalists. He knows : the same issues will come up again. Agnès Buzyn, is it still credible? Can it still do campaign? Has she not been betrayed by the government after his remarks to the World? Besides the attacks of the opponents. Already tough, they are likely to be accentuated in the course of the campaign. Pierre-Yves Bournazel is holding well in hand his argument : "Contrary to its critics, Agnès Buzyn was at the heart of the health crisis, because she was taking care of at the hospital." The argument should come back, again and again, in the days to come..."I have not stopped working"
In the place of the political struggle, the two men will do everything to brag about the program of the candidate. The two promise new measures, inspired by the crisis, in particular on the theme of solidarity. Online meetings must be held in the next few days with all of the colistiers to put all the good ideas of their own. "For my part, I have not stopped working since the beginning of the crisis," says the good student Bournazel.
The two parisians will have to agree to successfully complete the remontada, which not many people did not believe - starting with the members of the majority. They know each other well : after being around a few years ago at the town hall, they were close at the beginning of the campaign in paris to try to tie up a joint application. This had not resulted. Both provide, however, share a relationship of friendship" and "a great mutual confidence". It should be noted finally that neither the one nor the other is inserted to The Republic in march. A problem to represent a candidate supposed to wear the colors of the movement, presidential? Replica of Bournazel : "This is proof that we have a team of very diverse and very diverse". No doubt, the critic is ready.
