“At the end of the summer, we will see if a candidate wins and if so, it will be necessary to take all measures to rally behind this candidate. Xavier Bertrand is one of the candidates of the right and of the center”, assured Christian Jacob. But, for now, “I am not committed and the Republicans are not committed to the candidacy of Xavier Bertrand. He is in his role but it is not our calendar”, according to the president of LR.
In the second round of the presidential election, “Emmanuel Macron is the worst candidate to face the National Rally” by Marine Le Pen, according to Christian Jacob. “The responsibility of the right and the center is to have an alternative project, with an alternative candidate capable of going to the second round. From then on, I do not rule out any assumptions about the candidates.”, he stressed.
Moreover, for the regional elections, “we provide total and unfailing support to Xavier Bertrand, as we do for Valérie Pécresse”, who also left Les Républicains.
