Yannick Jadot unveils the organization chart of his campaign team

Yannick Jadot, invested on September 28, environmental candidate for the 2022 presidential election, took all his time to build his campaign team, which will be led by MEP Mounir Satouri. « To build this team, I started with a promise from Yannick Jadot: he always wanted to bring his political family together ”, explains Mr. Satouri, who was already piloting Mr. Jadot’s campaign during the environmentalist primary. “When I suggested placing Sandrine Rousseau [finaliste de la primaire] at the heart of the campaign, it is part of this promise. We tried to put the right people in the right place. It has little to do with convention negotiations or power-balance arbitration using a calculator. We trust everyone. “

However, the environmentalist candidate wanted to respect all political balances within the Europe Ecology-Greens (EELV) party, which was heavily involved in the presidential campaign. Sandrine Rousseau, who had lingered after her defeat to express unambiguous support for Yannick Jadot, became chair of a large political council tasked with campaign strategy, in which the other primary candidates – Delphine Batho, President of Génération Ecologie and Member of Parliament for Deux-Sèvres, as well as Eric Piolle, Mayor of Grenoble – will be special advisers.

Yannick Jadot also wanted to display a strongly feminized team. Marie Toussaint, MEP and at the origin of the petition “The Affair of the Century”, which aimed to sue the French State for its inaction in the fight against global warming, is appointed political advisor. Just like Karima Delli, president of the transport committee in the European Parliament.

Citizen governance

Eva Sas, member of the executive board of EELV, will be “advisor every 100 days”. As such, it will have to translate the presidential project into a legislative and regulatory arsenal ready to be implemented during the first weeks following the arrival of Yannick Jadot at the Elysee Palace. A key position, because Yannick Jadot will be eagerly awaited on the realization and feasibility of his proposals.

Unsurprisingly, Matthieu Orphelin, deputy for Maine-et-Loire and ex-member of La République en Marche, inherits the coordination of the candidate’s seven spokespersons, including Mélissa Camara, close to Sandrine Rousseau, and Marine Tondelier, support from Eric Piolle. This spokesperson has four women and three men. Citizen governance has also been imagined, as a place of political arbitration. It will be made up of ecological voters drawn by lot, and co-directed by William Aucant, member of the former citizen convention for the climate desired in 2019 by Emmanuel Macron.
