Presidential 2022. Clash, bet, withdrawal… Echoes of the campaign

Arnaud Montebourg renounces the presidential election, the divorce between Jean-Luc Mélenchon and the popular Primary, when will Emmanuel Marcon declare himself a candidate? The echoes of the presidential campaign.

On the agenda

This Thursday, January 20 morning, six spokespersons for presidential candidate Valérie Pécresse (LR) take stock of Emmanuel Macron. Philippe Juvin (LR) is moving to Côte-d’Or, on the theme of old age. Marine Le Pen (RN) is in Fréjus (Var), a day dedicated to health. Anne Hidalgo (PS) visits her support committee in Creil (Oise). Christiane Taubira is the guest of Sciences Po Lille. Fabien Roussel (PCF) will talk about fuel prices at 1 p.m. at the Saint-Arnoult toll.


Arnaud Montebourg, cantor of the “remontada”, throws in the towel. He will not be a presidential candidate. “I have not succeeded in uniting my candidacy with other candidacies, in a common program”, he said.


Nothing is going well between Jean-Luc Mélenchon and the organizers of the Popular Primary, still campaigning for a left-wing union candidate for the presidential election. A short video, filmed in October, has been posted on social networks in recent hours, listing the ingredients that, according to the organizers of the Primary, will make it possible to compel Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Yannick Jadot and Anne Hidalgo to engage in this adventure. “In these images, the head of this organization claims to prevent us from having a loan, to sink us in the polls, today enrages Jean-Luc Mélenchon (LFI). I do not want to be involved in any way in this story, with funny aspects! »


Meanwhile… The People’s Primary certifies that it has reached 288,000 registered voters for online voting from January 27-30. Registration is open until January 23. The candidates for this Primary are: Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Yannick Jadot and Anne Hidalgo (reluctantly), Christiane Taubira, Pierre Larrouturou, Charlotte Marchandise and Anna Agueb-Porterie.

When ?

When will Emmanuel Macron declare himself a candidate? Very clever who can say. The predictions have been going well for several days. Latest: within two to three weeks. The bets are open…
