Alain Juppé. “Sarkozy has the advantage, I for now I have the opinion” – Ouest-France

He also addressed criticism thinly veiled Nicolas Sarkozy following the founding congress of the Party of Republicans (former UMP).

The whistles and boos that accompanied the former prime minister and to a lesser extent Francois Fillon on arrival at the podium in Paris on Saturday had damaged the image of unity that Nicolas wanted to return the party Sarkozy still marked by a war of fratricide leaders.

“Hysterical among militants”

“The militancy has its virtues, he also its risks: the risk of sectarianism, the risk of rejection of the other, the risk of imprisonment is a strong risk “ said Alain Juppe in issuing the” Great appointments Europe 1- iTELE-The World. ” “There are always some hysteria among activists. “

The former Prime Minister, who made the most serious rival figure of Nicolas Sarkozy for the presidential nomination right, had been heckled in February at the National Council of the UMP when he advocated union with the Centre. “I am not alone in this party that we must open up” , has he said Sunday. “The DNA of the UMP, it is the union of the right and center, I did not observe that the Republicans had given up DNA. If that were the case, I think it would be quite dangerous for the future “.

” I organize my small business “

In a thinly veiled reference to President Nicolas Sarkozy of Republicans, who denounced in particular “the terrifying spectacle of the family drama of Le Pen and the terrifying mediocrity of those who govern us” ( ), the mayor of Bordeaux has questioned the “tone of some discourse” which they felt was “somewhat strong, somewhat excessive” .

Reinforced by several polls that give the winner against Nicolas Sarkozy during the primary in November 2016 will nominate the candidate of the right and center at the 2017 election, Alain Juppe put forward its weight in the opinion. “Nicolas Sarkozy has left, I for now I have the opinion” , has he said. “I organize my small SMEs, sometimes it happens that performing SMEs are more effective than large CAC 40 companies” .


When Nicolas Sarkozy and Alain Juppé engage in a war … –

The image, again, will remain printed Alain Juppe is preparing to speak at the congress of the new party to which he belongs – Republicans – and the many activists boo. He replied, not without irony, he likes the militants, including those who are chasing their vengeance, they are “family”. Whatever, shouts and whistles echo the first passages of his speech. At the foot of the tribune, Nicolas Sarkozy does not outline any appeasement movement, not a sign, not a gesture, not an indication of appeasement towards his supporters, because they are his, who attack the mayor of Bordeaux. It is frozen and will remain frozen. Further proof – but it is only useful? – That a political war to death is now officially declared between the former president and his former foreign minister. It is no longer analysis, attitudes or postures that may be common to them. Nicolas Sarkozy and Alain Juppe will now shine on everything and as soon as possible.


Sarkozy deliberately chose permanent aggression, denunciation to slander, insult and personal attack if deems it necessary. Thus the Socialists and their leader would they have excluded themselves from the Republican camp. Why? According to the president of RS, they would have betrayed the Republic, repudiated its cardinal principles, abandoned our national and collective corpus. Holland, Valls, Bartolone, Le Drian, Fir or Macron, a-Republicans, not Republicans, anti-republican? This is what Nicolas Sarkozy now intends drumming every day for the French to regain lost popularity except in the heart of the militant right.

Juppé refuses this travesty of democratic dialogue. Right? Obviously. In opposition? Without any restraint. Convinced also that François Hollande was mistaken as to the economic policy to drive? That goes without saying. The mayor of Bordeaux bears not only his “moderation” but it meant at any price to play the game of exaggeration, denunciation or even slander. The frontal combat against the left, yes; caricature, no. By following these principles, Alain Juppe is confident of conquering the central axis of French society, a first majority in the primary of the right and center, a second majority at the second round of the presidential election.

Sarkozy is convinced, of course, that his rival wanders, that the French expect a straight right, a hard right and virulent defiance Marine Le Pen on his land, its themes and theses.

Juppé-Sarkozy, Sarkozy-Juppé, one of the two errs, by definition.


Nicolas Sarkozy, once fascinated by communitarianism to the Anglo-Saxon hard fan of the priest, pastor, rabbi or imam by definition superior to teacher and the teacher – not old, it dates back less than ten years – has made a complete rotation of ideological top. He now advocates an ultra design, closed, lay-laïcarde of secularism, a design that, you must know, has never prevailed in the French model is pragmatism, adaptation of donations granted piecemeal. That Jewish students in public education skipped school, lessons and homework on Yom Kippur has never aroused the slightest protest. This was so, and it was well well. More question, according to Nicolas Sarkozy, to compromise. Secularism, secularism all, no accommodation, even cause a series of unnecessary clashes. To complete his demonstration, the former head of state recalled the last weekend that was hostile to alternative school meals, so pork for everyone.

Alain Juppé at the head of a big city, knows that such a radical posture will cause repeated fractures in French society, as hundreds of thousands of children will be placed cantilevered in contradiction, their family of one side, teachers from the other. Remain faithful to the primordial foundation of secularism, obviously, but without wishing to humiliation. Juppé knows that by insisting much and as hard on the theme of secularism, Sarkozy has the will to radicalize the political confrontation, especially about the place of Islam in France. It will replicate with measure; it will suggest nuanced solutions. The extent and grade will they have their place in the next presidential confrontation? Nothing is less obvious.


Now Nicolas Sarkozy more control than ever the party, a “new” organization. LR will be at his boot, RS will be built to be made available. That’s why Alain Juppe, immediately after the founding congress, considered it essential to return to the primary, its conception, organization. A primary right and center …; a primary where can express the millions of French, so open, truly open, not only to the activists and supporters of LR. However, Alain Juppe, and he made it clear this weekend, has little confidence in a primary qu’organiserait that bidouillerait rather the Sarkozy clan installed by force of circumstances to the direction of LR. Therefore Juppé demands guarantees of honesty and transparency. Therefore Juppe suggested that, otherwise it will dry primary to stand directly in the first round of presidential elections – which would be suicide for the Republican right, but too bad

The conference is. past. Vive policy and its charms among Republicans!


Republicans launch the battle of alternation – Le Figaro

Reinforced by the congress of the new party, Nicolas Sarkozy is preparing a reshuffle of management teams and ambition displayed as a “Republic of confidence.”

” This day is a day of rebirth …, “commented Nicolas Sarkozy at the end of the Congress of Republicans. A renaissance to forget the mistakes of a party felled by the scandal of Bygmalion case and the 2012 crisis A renaissance for the reconquest of power in 2017 he has assumed by strongly denouncing the government and proposing to rebuild in the country confidence in politics that no longer exists, “in any part of society.” But a still fragile revival, despite its recent electoral victories.

In this Saturday spring, Congress of Republicans still showed yesterday a convalescent movement. The room was not as packed as expected. “We could have had more people, but it was a Saturday, and everyone paid cash its place,” observes a close Sarkozy, about 10 000 to 12 000 people present – 17,000 according to organizers . “We look forward to hearing the crowd in Poitiers PS Congress next week,” said one adviser Nicolas Sarkozy already glad of mobilization.

Without a doubt, the launch of the Republicans will was less spectacular than Sarkozy’s enthronement congress president of the UMP in November 2004. It was then celebrated in Sarkozy providential man. This time, the Congress was supposed to be that of a collective. Participants are loaned to exercise for five hours in the floating attention of a very marked right room, which has cheered the speech of a particularly pugnacious Laurent Wauquiez in the stigmatization of “foreigners”. François Fillon, freshly greeted by whistles, has “managed to return the room”, recognizes a relative of Sarkozy, “but Juppé left her indifferent,” and made a speech “shifted, as if before a school trade “.

” Sectarianism, it’s not us “

boos, considered an inevitable by folklore entourage of Nicolas Sarkozy, have nevertheless clearly shown that the staging image and unity for which the former head of the state tirelessly since his election as head of the party will be more and more difficult to hold, as its own militants seem determined not to play the game. On Saturday, it’s not on stage, but in the room we felt rising competition which announce very rough for the primary in November 2016 . The exasperation of Nicolas Sarkozy with regard to Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet already indicates that the organizational transition that had been set there six months will probably not be left as is. On the plateau of France 2 on Sunday night, the boss of the Republicans, “regretted the few whistles” and he stressed his determination not to “play the game of the division” before entering the primary campaign after the summer 2016. With the re-founding of the new party, we have “laid the foundations of alternating tomorrow,” he added.

The exasperation of Nicolas Sarkozy with regard to NKM already indicates that the organizational transition will probably not be left as it is

The speech of Nicolas Sarkozy nevertheless set an ambitious goal, that of a “Republic of confidence.” “When trust is lacking, everything collapses, and we are not so far from the collapse,” he insisted. “This distrust should challenge us, we must be careful in what we promise tomorrow to be sure that we will hold tomorrow,” he admitted, aware that she is also for him, who has been in power Supreme over five years. “The Republic of confidence, it’s a nice slogan, but that confidence will not come back if they promise too much. At over-promise, it creates distrust, “warns Hervé Mariton, recalling that Nicolas Sarkozy’s slogan in 2007 was” Everything is possible “.

The new head of the Republicans has also used to play its role as opponent. “He was elected head of the party to cleave, not to be consensual,” warns one of his advisers, who remembers “what was said on the Socialist Party Nicolas Sarkozy when he was in power.” The former head of state said little about the National Front and many left. But he would not take the tone of humor to denigrate. He has appointed Francois Hollande once, and he also denounced “the terrifying mediocrity.”

In this systematic indictment, Sarkozy spoke out against the “socialist pretension to a monopoly of the Republic. ” “Sectarianism, not us!”, He has proclaimed, referring also to judicial cases against him and stating that in “the Republic is not trying to win in the courts that we lost to the people! “. And finally, the man of the day, to be reconciled to everyone, has been Éric Woerth, who has had a number ovations after being shut in the Bettencourt affair.

A man drunk killed a 22 year old woman and injured three people, including two seriously, before being overpowered and arrested by police.

A sensitive area in the outskirts of Metz (Moselle) woke up in shock on Sunday after a fatal shooting in the street at night.

Equipped with an automatic gun with a caliber 9 mm acquired unlawfully and whose port No individual, he opened fire, killing a young woman of 22 and wounding three others.

Already convicted, including for illegal firearms, the alleged gunman could seek revenge after an “altercation amid Alcohol”, for a seemingly “trivial” cause, said Sunday Attorney Metz, Christian Mercuri.

In addition to the young woman of 22, died after being hit by several bullets, the brother of the victim, 25 year old, and a young man of 18 years were in very serious condition, one shot in the head and one in the abdomen. Their days were still at risk Sunday afternoon, said Mr. Mercuri. In total, fifteen casings were found in five different crime scenes by investigators.

Shots taken for firecrackers

“At first, we all thought they were firecrackers, and then I saw a gunman firing at everybody, “said Dylan, 20, an employee of a maintenance company. “I did not meet the eyes of the shooter to risk taking a bullet,” says Louisa, 43, who was returning home with the younger of her two children when she heard the shots. From her window, she then saw the help that were busy trying to revive the young woman of 22 years in vain

By the time we tried to revive her with blows of cardiac massage, d. Other shots were heard within a radius of 500 meters and the police threw the heels of the shooter.

Mastered taser

Spotted by an equipped patrol taser guns to electrical impulses, the alleged gunman was neutralized by the time he was going to “take perhaps another victim,” said an investigator. “If he had time, he would undoubtedly have opened fire” on the police, the gun is still loaded and ready to fire, according to Police Commissioner of Public Safety Moselle, Olivier Saudreau. There were other reserve ammunition in his pockets.

“The attacker took enormous risks” by setting plays the police, noticed the senator and mayor of Woippy, François Grosdidier (Republicans ) while praising the “great professionalism” of law enforcement. The prosecutor praised their “exceptional coolness” that allowed to avoid further burdening the terrible toll of the tragedy.

Placed in custody, the alleged gunman was to be brought before a judge Monday instruction for an indictment, probably to murder and attempted murder if the investigation helps retain premeditation of acting out. The man had been sentenced to five years’ imprisonment, suspended for some sexual assault and violence and offense against legislation on arms.


Sarkozy, Juppé, 2017 … Things to Remember in charge of weekend … –

Exit the UMP . The new party led by Nicolas Sarkozy is now called, according to the wish of the former head of state, “Republicans”, a name approved by more than 83% of members, which, however, less than half have expressed during the internet voting held Thursday and Friday. Nicolas Sarkozy gathered his troops Saturday, May 30 Porte de la Villette in Paris to rebuild the party qu”il chairs, crucial step in his reconquest of power strategy in 2017.

For the occasion, Nicolas Sarkozy has made a relentless prosecutor “left”, accused of “betraying the Republic.” Concluding the founding congress of the movement he wanted to see succeed the UMP, she was born in 2002 from the will of Jacques Chirac, the former Head of State said he wanted to “rebuild the Republic of confidence” word hammered relentlessly. But it was not without first pounded those who tried to deprive him of the name.

Mediocrity Holland

He even speak of ” the terrifying mediocrity “of President Francois Hollande. “By what right and? Above all, who could refuse us the name of Republicans,” railed Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking after 3:00 p.m., after a succession of speeches in Paris frugal decor Event Center, a sheet metal rectangle the stifling atmosphere quickly.

An allusion to judicial proceedings in various quarters against a “privatization” of the republican idea. “To those who accuse us of confiscating the Republic, we respond that, if they had not betrayed her, if they had not abandoned, if they had not lowered, we would not have need today to face, “he told the president of the opposition party.

A vocabulary that is not to the liking of everyone. Former Prime Minister Alain Juppe, candidate for the primary right to the presidential election of 2017, said Sunday the Grand appointments Europe 1 / iTELE / Le Monde that he would not use the same “excessive vocabulary” that “attack people.” “ I said I was an open man on the right and not sectarian. A vocabulary is a bit up the heat, which attacks the people, it’s not my kind of beauty.”

This was again wiped hearty boos Saturday. The mayor of Bordeaux said – unusual in a political forum – that it “was her pain,” without undermining its “determination”. For the final family photo, the former Prime Minister had set back. Nicolas Sarkozy sent a fraternal look for side by side. Returning to the Sunday incident, Alain Juppe said: “I know the activists (…) The militancy has its virtues It also has its risks, the risk of sectarianism, the risk of refusal of.. other. The risk of incarceration is high risk. He still has it in some hysterical activists. “

Whistles for Fillon and Juppé

François Fillon, another candidate for the primary, also suffered whistles. Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, the number two of the former UMP, denounced the fact that Alain Juppe Sunday and François Fillon had suffered jeers founder Republican Congress, seeing it as “more than a quack” and saying that “it should not be that the Republicans “. “I hate that!

You can whistle all you want, from the time when there is a primary, it is the French who will decide,” insisted the former Minister Nicolas Sarkozy . “It’s more a quack, I is not what I like in politics. It is especially a shame,” she has said.

Some presidential stables greet their champion in the heat, as Bruno Le Maire, wreathed in its fight against the reform of college – theme that obsessed delegates – but the audience was Sarkozy devil. “The primary, that is another thing, the games are very open, it will be tight” in “this very room Sarkozy”, analyzed the juppéiste Benoist Appeared.

2017 was on everyone’s mind but the first target of Republicans is clearly the December election with no region out of range, according to leader of the Ile-de-France, Valérie Pécresse

Fillon and Juppé met with boos – Le Figaro

VIDEO – On the occasion of the founding congress of the party “The Republicans” who stood up to the Villette, both former prime ministers have faced a hostile reception, and upon arrival on the premises.

The first mission of the day was both very simple and very delicate. When launching its new collection, Nicolas Sarkozy had at heart avoid false note. Nothing must disturb the first congress of the Republicans and especially not the perspective of the primary in 2016, for which everyone prepares.

All morning, however, the tension was palpable Porte de la Villette. At their arrival, Francois Fillon and Alain Juppe were able to measure themselves that they were not unanimous among militants. Some quickly repressed jests even welcomed the entry of the mayor of Bordeaux in the great hall of the congress. But the attention of most militants then turned to the forum, at breakneck speed, the speakers succeeded. The tone was set.

In the early afternoon, François Fillon suffered the first whistles at the podium, when his name was announced. Even at the height of the war that was opposed to Jean-Francois Cope for nearly two years, never a national meeting of the UMP had experienced such an episode. The former prime minister, accusing the blow, is located behind the desk, visibly affected. He has not changed a line from his very speech written, as usual.

“It is not allowed to disappoint”

“We decided to call our” Republicans “: this choice requires us more than any other because when we take the Republic as standard it is not allowed to disappoint,” said the candidate the primary. “Some people think that we will convince the French taking all turns squeezing to the right, others driving in the middle of the road, not to mention the demagogues who say you can let go of the steering wheel and looking back, has he ridiculed then. I do not want to cut the slices in France, I take it as a block, with love, with the conviction that we must reinvent all to hope, propose and act. “

Encouraged by some bursts of applause, the former prime minister did not fail to specify what he expects from his new party. “If the Republicans were a campaign machine, an army barracks where adherents come to look for orders; if we were not the family where the fraternal debate on each floor; if we were only conflicts and invective against those who think and act differently; if we were not the interpreter of all French sensibilities while the Republic is not in us, “he assured.

A few minutes after being booed, Fillon could not be clearer. “Our Congress can not be a ripolinage the past, but must be a new start,” he further stated. And, a sign that its determination remains intact from the perspective of 2017, Fillon also stressed that “to read the polls, everyone seems capable of returning to normality Francois Hollande.” “But the central question that must be answered: What is it,” he launched before leaving the podium, this time the applause

” Some of you hiss me. Some … Çela makes me sad but it does not change my determination, because you are my family! “

A few minutes later, Alain Juppe, in turn, suffered the wrath of much of the room. The mayor of Bordeaux began his speech without waiting for calm returns. “I’ll tell you a secret, he explained. Some of you hiss me. Some … Çela makes me sad but it does not change my determination, because you are my family! “The” confidence “, hammered, is enough to restore calm. The former prime minister then explained that the alternation will be possible only on two conditions: “collect and gather around a project.” “It does not make good choices in the division,” he says. Addressing beyond the few thousand militants, “the French and the French who are listening,” he called for “a happy and ambitious nation.” The mayor of Bordeaux took the podium to develop again its happy identity project for France and “living together”. “I would suggest to French and French to the nation of the XXI century, not that of nostalgia, but of harmony.” Despite all his efforts, Alain Juppe is however really applauded when he mentions that “the one who allowed the gathering “of the day. Immediately, the room begins to chant “Nicolas, Nicolas”. At the forum, the former Prime Minister barely spoke again. “Wait, it happens,” he says before assuming “you can, my dear Nicolas, count on my support in the task is yours for the presidency of the Republicans.” The room was white-hot. Nicolas Sarkozy could move on stage.

“We are fortunate to belong to a political family that counts among its ranks a statesman like Alain Juppé. This is wealth, “says the former president as an introduction. Then he takes the time to cite Francois Fillon, Bruno Le Maire, Jean-Pierre Raffarin, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, Laurent Wauquiez, like so many “opportunities” for his party. This time, each name will be welcomed by large applause.

“The call of May 29,” or the Valmy Nicolas Sarkozy – Liberation

On the same subject

Let’s call the “Call of May 29″ since it is undeniable, something its glorious elder on June 18

The same simplicity, the same drama that will escape the sincere patriots. We believe it printed on a slightly yellowed paper, in a context of tricolor beautifully. No fuss, no fancy typography is rustic, like that of a clandestine printing

In this address very fat, very simple but so strong that we discover this Saturday on our virtual walls. “Calling all Republicans of France.”

And, finally, the “Unite” exclamatory that irresistibly evokes the manifesto of Karl Marx. Note the striking similarity between the energetic signatures of General de Gaulle and Nicolas Sarkozy.

This is because the situation is serious and the country in great danger. It took at least that to announce this important event: a new party will be born in France. Not a party but a force, a movement as the country has ever known.

How not to think that other call, the call of the convention calling on all French to save the Republic. For reading this text flirting dangerously with the ridiculous, it is a new “mass uprising” that they are causing. This Saturday, the Villette will be the Valmy Nicolas Sarkozy. Remember, more prosaically, that this battle will be won if the party manages by 2017 to double the number of its members to date of contribution.

Who are all these “Republicans in France” called to to get up? Adherents of the refounded UMP, the party must be called Republicans (LR)? They are, explains Sarkozy, much more than that: they are “all who love the French Republic, the miracle by which so many men in the world who have fallen asleep subjects woke citizens” . We see that this is still a lot of people!

Further, the text becomes a little more explicit. The call is aimed more specifically at “those who suffer to see the Republic back every day,” “those who always choose the openness to the universal against the ‘communitarian confinement “. On this subject, Sarkozy was very clear. For him, the fall of the Republic begins where meals substitutions are served in school canteens.

The Republican is also the one who refuses to give to others the control over their own destiny. Suffice to say that for Sarkozy, Schengen is frankly not Republican

And then he will not “abandon war origins and memories”, “sense of destiny common. ” The Republican is not at all favorable to the history of the college programs, those who speak too of colonialism and slavery. It is not ready to accept a legalization of GPA, because he thinks that “the human person is not a commodity to be bought and sold.”

In summary, these Republicans were then perhaps “awakened citizen.” They will lie, for sure, ample sarkozystes.


A day to turn the UMP into “Republicans” – Le Monde

Le Monde | • Updated | By

Activists arrive at the Founding Congress of the new right-wing party,

They will converge from all over France for attend a funeral and a birth. Approximately 20,000 activists and UMP executives are expected, Saturday, May 30, from 10 am at Paris Event Center (19 th arrondissement of Paris) to participate in the rebuilding of the main party congress of the French right. During the day, the party leaders and activists turn to the thirteen UMP page to start Republicans, a new party designed by Nicolas Sarkozy to win back the Elysee. But behind the beautiful collection of festive image, also play a ball of ego between primary contenders for the November 2016

  • How will unfold this congress?

The UMP debt 69.3 million had to do with the means at hand. Gone are the days of high masses as at Le Bourget in 2004, when Nicolas Sarkozy was inaugurated as President of the UMP in an American show. Also ended costly splendours and pasta with truffles some meetings of the 2012 presidential election, a period when Bygmalion managed logistics and juggling the bills.

This time modesty is displayed. For this Congress, the Treasurer Daniel Fasquelle communicates a budget of 550,000 euros, away from 6 million to 8 million euros Bourget. Activists have to pay their travel, food, and they will be called upon to direct the crowd or provide security. Some will attend the convention of a tent outside, as the UMP did not have enough money to rent a larger room

Read also:. A congress UMP submitted the wagon

On this day, the UMP will celebrate the vote results released Friday night. After two days of electronic consultation, 83,28% of activists in favor of the new name The Republican. 96.34% of them have validated the future status of the new training and 94.77% approved the list of the political bureau. A triumph? Not quite because participation was skinny (97,440 voters or 45.74% of members to date of contribution). But Nicolas Sarkozy can enjoy.

This vote had been imposed on him by supporters of Alain Juppé to Nicolas Sarkozy, which would be fine. In polls, supporters of right seemed rather reluctant to this change of surname, but the body of the militant UMP traditionally royalist, has allowed the former head of state to complete his work.

The day will be organized in nine thematic sequences. Fifty personalities will speak. Nicolas Sarkozy wanted to stage the “descent” between the RPR, UMP and Republicans, and former glories as Bernadette Chirac, could occur between two clips on the history of the movement and of the Republic. Angela Merkel sent a video message, and personalities, such as navigator Maud Fontenoy and the former tennis player Marion Bartoli, will be involved. Nothing but classic.

  • What’s the issue of the day?

For the former President of the Republic it is the party enact transformation, one of his campaign promises of autumn 2014. But Nicolas Sarkozy is already dreaming of unit images around him. This conference will allow him to show a little more like the central character of his political family. A political asset for the future. The former head of state put on the party to unite around him hundreds of thousands of activists, a solid foundation to address the first round of the primer in November 2016.

His new training Republicans, is a machine that should allow it to regain the Elysee. “With this convention, it creates the event around it. It requires the media and his opponents to articulate their schedule according to what he has set up “, an analysis of his supporters Rue Vaugirard.

The former president of the Republic had nevertheless regained the UMP obligation. Surrounded by business, he needed to protect themselves and especially not to leave the device to an opponent like Alain Juppé. Since then he has portrayed as a savior and unifier of a family that was torn after his retirement during the confrontation between Jean-François Copé and François Fillon.

The year 2015, with elections in favor of the UMP, Mr Sarkozy allows to reinforce this image. Candidates for primary can only join the rally in order not to appear as dividers. In resigning himself to count the days until the beginning of 2016 … “This is a coronation, enthronement quips near Alain Juppé. But for us, there will not be a before and an after. The place of our calendar continues without distort the purpose. “

  • What are the speeches of monitor?

Nicolas Sarkozy will close the debates between 3 p.m. and 16 hours. Since November 7, 2014 at the Porte de Versailles, at a rally where he had made a very long speech, the former head of state should pose as herald of a republic that would be threatened by sectarian weakened by intermediate body and perverted by the so-called socialist egalitarianism instilled, for example with the college reform.

Alain Juppe is expected to speak just before Mr Sarkozy. For the mayor of Bordeaux, declared candidate for the primary, exercise is subtle. It must mark its difference without rushing sarkozystes militants. When the UMP national council on February 7, the mayor of Bordeaux had been whistled by many executives when he raised the necessary alliance with the center. “If Juppe is whistling, the fault would be on the side of Nicolas Sarkozy, who has not managed the gathering and unity of his family” , predicts Gilles Boyer, political advisor to the Mayor Bordeaux.

All other tenors will occur at the end of each thematic sequence. Bruno Le Maire, who has long pondered his speech should be the defender of debate within his own family. “Each candidate will defend its own vision and its method of government. Primary is a great appointment democratic: it will give us an opportunity to finally decide questions that we have put under the carpet for years, “ told the World the likely candidate for the primary

Fillon Juppé, Mayor … Who will break the mood of the Congress of … – The Express

“The Republicans” have been called “The Gathering” but Nicolas Sarkozy has chosen the first option. Nevertheless, the president of the UMP expects his friends they are all gathered this Saturday. The unit primarily to celebrate the birth of his party the next century. No no side, no escape.

Nicolas Sarkozy has ensured that this founding congress does not give the image of a coronation. The Barnum deployed at Paris in November 2004 remained in archival boxes. The president of the UMP has promised to play modest. He did not take the stage after a triumphant entrance in the middle of the crowd. He listens carefully to his predecessors in the Tribune, Bruno Le Maire, Francois Fillon and Alain Juppé.

The Mayor not there “to sing the praises of the chef”

At eighteen months of the primary, its competitors also will they play the game? “We do not seek the clash” immediately evacuate Jerome Grand Esnon strategist Bruno Le Maire. The deputy from Eure planned a speech unsurprisingly, far from political considerations “to get high”. His entourage, however, that the candidate not yet declared to the primary draw the outline of a possible program for 2016 around the notions of “renewal” and “profound changes”. “We are not here to sing the praises of the party leader”, asserts a lemairiste.

Fillon and “the fiery spirit of the gathering”

In contrast to a Bruno Le Maire on the rise, François Fillon him returned to court Thursday to testify in the case against Jean-Pierre Jouyet and two journalists from the World . A he asked the secretary general of the Elysee to “break the front legs” of Nicolas Sarkozy? The defense could not prove it with certainty. 48 hours later, the former prime minister still take the stage with the label of “traitor” that 20,000 activists expected this Saturday will be happy to stick him in the back. Do not bother to distance the president of the UMP. The speech of François Fillon will be a “call to courage, responsibility and firmness. Spread the message to say that with France decided and renovated, everything is possible”, taking place around him. And unity? “We are animated by a strong spirit of togetherness.”

Matthew Deprieck

Bertrand on another field

For different reasons, Xavier Bertrand has no interest either to mark its difference. The time of the primary is for him not come. The priority this year 2015 is in regional Nord-Pas-de -Calais-Picardie. “If some take advantage of the congress to voice their difference, it will not be understood,” he said Tuesday at the Le Figaro .

Matthew Deprieck


Juppé “prohibits is nothing”

Rest Alain Juppé. The mystery surrounding his speech is thick. “It is forbidden to nothing,” said in a waffle impeccable, his advisor Gilles Boyer, recalling that between 2002 and 2004, the positions were reversed. Alain Juppe led the UMP, Nicolas Sarkozy eyeing the 2007 presidential and did not hesitate to make it known. Last February, during a National Council, a sort of mini-conferences, Alain Juppe had mocked the “Pavlovian reflex” of UMP militants ready to boo Christiane Taubira soon as his name was pronounced. Twice he had also recalled its proximity and support to Bayrou, triggering the whistles from the audience. The mayor of Bordeaux does not prohibit this Saturday to replay the score.

bel air unit could be especially troubled by the chorus of whistles. The sarkozystes activists present this Saturday could be tempted to disrupt the speech of their favorite opponents. They then have the choice between François “the traitor” and Juppé “provocative”.
