Presidential 2022: “no hypothesis on the candidates” is ruled out
“I do not rule out any hypothesis on the candidates”, explains Christian Jacob, including a rallying to Xavier Bertrand, the president of the Hauts-de-France region (ex-LR), who formalized his candidacy for the 2022 presidential election last week.
“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 right-wing candidates and of the Center”, specifies the president of the Republican party. 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”, adds Christian Jacob.
