Le Parisien interviewed several members of La République En Marche regarding Anne Hidalgo on August 9. The latter believe that the Mayor of Paris could be a major competitor if she decides, despite what she has said, to run for the 2022 Presidential.

Interviewed by Le Parisien on July 23, 2020, Anne Hidalgo proclaimed loud and clear that she “will not be a candidate” in the presidential elections of 2022. “On the other hand, I will take all my part in the debate based on my experience and my action,” added the one who was re-elected on July 3 at the head of the city of Paris. This Sunday, August 9, our colleagues reveal the mistrust of members of La République En Marche towards the 61-year-old mayor.

A parliamentarian interviewed believes that “it would be a serious mistake to underestimate her” because she could be a major competitor against . The representative of the Left would indeed, for several LREM politicians, be able to stand for the next Presidential elections. “Hidalgo is the most dangerous”, says one of them. “She is not cold in the eyes. She is not trembling like a leaf, which, at this level of play, does not forgive,” said the latter. A senior official from the President of the Republic’s party says he “must be taken very seriously”. “She is a bad mayor, but I have always said that she would be an excellent candidate. Contrary to what she repeats, she is in a logic that is nationalizing. It is not trivial to go see Eric Piolle “, continues the anonymous politician, evoking the proximity of Anne Hidalgo with the member of Europe Ecology Les Verts, who is also the Mayor of Grenoble.

A Mayor who leaves LREM members on the alert

A member of the majority told our colleagues that “Macron’s entourage is watching Hidalgo, that’s for sure”. “She is a solid politician, who won two elections in Paris, who knows the campaigns, the media … On the left, things are played out between her and Yannick Jadot”, he says, referring to the 53-year-old environmental activist. For him, Anne Hidalgo could be a formidable adversary “if she created emulation around her, if she told a story around a candidacy that would bring together socialists, environmentalists, civil society and that things got off to a positive start”.
