How Montebourg tries to treat his exit – Presidential Election
| Breaking News Updates | Usa news



End of game imminent for Arnaud Montebourg. Weighing barely 1% in the polls, the champion of “Made in France” is preparing to officially throw in the towel and give up his presidential ambitions. According to “Le Figaro”, he acknowledged his “failure” in front of his campaign team on Tuesday, refusing to carry a simple candidacy for testimony. “Arnaud Montebourg noted that he was not going to have the 500 signatures,” officially recognized one of his relatives, Senator Laurence Rossignol. And without a party behind him, he could hardly hope to convince the banks to lend him money.

A campaign at a standstill

Arnaud Montebourg’s package does not look like a political earthquake, his campaign having been at a standstill for a long time. The former Minister of Productive Recovery has not sent a single sign to voters since his December 31 wishes, apart from a tweet condemning Emmanuel Macron’s remarks on the unvaccinated and another on the occasion of the 7th anniversary of the attack on Charlie Hebdo.

Object of mockery from the announcement of the name chosen to run for office (the “Remontada”), his presidential adventure had definitely derailed in early November, following his proposal to block private money transfers to countries that refuse to repatriate their nationals. Faced with the outcry on the left, including within his own troops, Arnaud Montebourg had quickly backpedaled. But part of his team had then let go.

The staging of his phone calls to other candidates of the left had made the buzz in mid-December. But she also finished classifying him in the category of candidates lacking credibility.

The stake is now for him not to lose more feathers. First objective: to remain in the game of the future recomposition of the left, by rallying to the “good” candidate. Not only the one who will achieve the best score, but also the one who will offer him the best guarantees for the legislative elections to come.

Two main options are on the table: the communist Fabien Roussel and Christiane Taubira, who should formalize his candidacy this Saturday, January 15. However, there is no shortage of disagreements with the latter (particularly on nuclear power and Europe). But Senator Mickaël Vallet, spokesperson for Arnaud Montebourg, told AFP that “the discussion was lighter than with others”.

The issue of debt recovery

Beyond the resumption of proposals, one of the crucial points for Arnaud Montebourg will be the financial aspect. According to the Politico site, a GA report, dated last Friday, “mentions about the movement he now chairs, the Commitment: the assembly gives mandate to the president to negotiate the takeover of the campaign debt, in the event of an electoral agreement ”. Politico recalls that Yannick Jadot had obtained the commitment that the PS erase its campaign slate of € 200,000, in 2017, when he withdrew to support Benoît Hamon (a promise that was never kept).

Whatever happens, Arnaud Montebourg will have work to make people forget his poor 2021-2022 campaign. A disappointment that follows his two previous failures in the presidential elections of 2012 and 2017, where he had each time finished 3rd in the socialist primary.
