The info not to be missed
Complete silence at LR. After a final debate bringing together the five candidates for the nomination of the Republicans for the presidential election, the votes opened this Wednesday at 8 am. In the running are Michel Barnier, Xavier Bertrand, Éric Ciotti, Valérie Pécresse and Philippe Juvin. The winner will be known on Saturday at 2:30 p.m., after a first round whose results, Thursday, will determine the two finalists.
The vote promises to be very open, each of the four “big” candidates – Philippe Juvin appears to be an outsider – being able to claim the second round, especially as the approach of Congress has attracted new members. In total, 140,000 people will be able to vote – a far cry from the approximately 4 million voters in 2016, but it was then an open primary where everyone, for 2 euros and a profession of faith, could vote.
The fourth and final debate, Tuesday evening on France 2, was also an opportunity to talk about their program beyond immigration and insecurity, which dominated the campaign. All pledged to support the winner of the Congress.
