Xavier Bertrand estimated Monday, October 4 on franceinfo that the Congress of Republicans, on December 4, was “very late to agree”. “He just had to tell the Republican authorities”, replied on France Inter Valérie Pécresse, president of the Île-de-France region and a possible right-wing primary in view of the 2022 presidential election. “Today there are rules, you have to respect them”, she explained, stressing however that “the acceleration of the calendar” don’t make him “no more afraid than democracy.”

“There are collective rules and these collective rules I respect them and from the start, we have to play collectively, judge Valérie Pécresse. We must respect democracy, the terms of the selection of the candidate of the right. ”
After ruling out the option of a primary, Republican activists must nominate their candidate in early December, in a two-round vote. The conditions “were decided by activists who spoke out democratically and they made the choice of democracy, continued Valérie Pécresse. An internal democracy within the Republicans party, which I regret, I would have preferred that we take advantage of this moment to gather around us, but whatever, the debate is closed. “
