"what is this mess?", exclaims Xavier Bertrand. While regional elections are scheduled in march 2021, the prospect of a postponement of the election in 2022 - so after the presidential election - has clearly annoyed the presidents of the region. If any of them has not been officially contacted, the subject is on the table of the executive, as revealed by The JDD this weekend. "It is true that the president and all of his interlocutors have not completely closed the door. The president thought about it," confirms a part of the majority of the Figaro. "There is now nothing written or researched", wants to believe in a history of the campaign.read also : distrust dominates between Macron and the presidents of the region
During a lunch with the president of the Regions of France, Renaud Muselier, which took place on Monday at the Elysée palace in the presence of the minister Jacqueline Gourault, the head of the State has been very clear, according to information from Figaro. "I will help you (financially) if you help me to see the regional after the presidential election because I have political opponents among you", said Emmanuel Macron, as reported by Renaud Muselier to the presidents of region that he had then by phone. "I'm not going to give money to my opponents," added the president of the Republic.
A way to return to the political ambitions of some of the presidents of the regions that are cross-eyed on the presidential election, as Xavier Bertrand (Hauts-de-France), Valérie Pécresse (Île-de-France), and Laurent Wauquiez (Auvergne, Rhône-Alpes) ? "The president raised the question of the electoral calendar in the light of the implementation of the recovery plan in the fall, in which the regions will be closely involved," said the Elysée. "The chair opens the debate in the general interest. You can't ask what the regions participating in the recovery plan but that they interrupt their action for six months because of the campaign".
"It is totally inappropriate for the president then you handle all the crisis. He is in charge of the presidential or French?" rebels elected. The regions request that the State of the financial compensation after the decrease in their revenues, because of the health crisis. "The head of State we made a blackmail ? It is totally anti-republican", is concerned that another president of a region."A political maneuver" to avoid a blow of LREM"
"One day, Emmanuel Macron wants to change the date of the presidential election to go forward, the next day he wants to change the date of the regional decline. The elections this is not a game of dice ! Behind the elections, it is the people ! And the people we respect", said Xavier Bertrand, the opposite of a deferral election in 2022. "The local authorities have been shifted for health reasons. This is not the same thing as a political expediency, personal or presidential", supports the president of the Hauts-de-France. A message shared by other presidents. "The elections, it is a rendez-vous with the people. This is not a choice of personal convenience or of the president of the Republic or the presidents of the region," admits the entourage of the president of the Île-de-France, Valérie Pécresse.
For the regional executive, a change in the calendar would be seen as "a political manoeuvre" to nine months before elections, "to avoid a snub of LREM before the presidential election" and "to weaken the presidents of the region". "It is clearly in the line of fire", indicate number of elected members. All have noticed that the head of State, Sunday evening, was not mentioned. "Yet, we, in a week, we had masks !", reminds of a president of a region, to emphasize the key role of local authorities during the crisis.The editorial team conseilleLes regional elections, already in all têtesLa Republic on implementation on the regional elections in view of 2022SujetElections régionales8 commentairesB_le 15/06/2020 20:56
