Retired from the national policy
After his defeat at the primary of the right in 2016, then that of the candidate LR François Fillon in the 2017 presidential election, Alain Juppe said he would devote himself to his local mandate, away from the national authorities of the right.
However, he has repeatedly demonstrated his support for the Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, and the reforms led by Emmanuel Macron, distancing itself at the same time with the line of Laurent Wauquiez.
The Elysee confirmed Thursday night at LCI, he would appoint former minister Jacques Mezard to the Constitutional Council. As for the Senate Speaker, Gérard Larcher, he declared at the same time that he would appoint the Senator LR of Cher François Pillet.
