Manuel Valls also warned the future winner of the 2022 election. “In the last elections, whoever wins believes he has a mandate from the people which authorizes him to govern alone with the majority given to him by the legislative elections. This was Sarkozy’s mistake. It was Hollande’s mistake. This was also Emmanuel Macron’s mistake “. According to Manuel Valls, “to re-mobilize the Republican camp, it will be necessary to go well beyond the borders and not of the single party of the majority as was the Republic in progress”.
“I embodied all the failures of the quinquennium” by François Hollande, regrets the former Prime Minister. Manuel Valls also recognizes personal errors, in particular that “that, having broken the promise not to support a candidate other than the one who won the primary in 2017, I did not realize that this was going to make me the traitor”. The former elected official, now city councilor in Barcelona, admits having lived a “fall due to errors, due to the failure of François Hollande’s five-year term”, after the primary of the left, in view of the presidential election of 2017. “I felt a form of death” following these failures, confides Manuel Valls, assuring that his relationship with the French was “strong”.
