Nicolas Chapuis: Emmanuel Macron did everything on Tuesday 30 August, to avoid the subject of his candidacy in 2017, while sending clear signals. He clearly set a horizon “next year” . Already, in July, he had assured that the movement Running! was intended to carry a “Presidential Project” . The suspense seems low. It is unlikely that Emmanuel Macron gives all this trouble to finally give up.
That said, the now former Minister of Economy and Finance wants to remain master of his calendar and especially its communication . With the announcement of his resignation, he offers a big visibility. It certainly reserve his nomination for later in order to keep the cartridges.
The timing of this announcement is a little surprising. Why now, when he could leave to continue a wedge right?
Emmanuel Macron already planned to leave in July. The attacks in France have led to delay his resignation to avoid giving the impression to jump ship at the worst time. This September, he took advantage of a tiny breath, just after the weekend where the line was torn, to have its own media window. Communication plays a big role in the timing this decision

Emmanuel Macron has clearly explained that he wanted to devote to Power Up!, And therefore should not join another organization.

Emmanuel Macron also knows that if he has an electoral base, this may not be the one going to vote in a primary from the left.
Do you think that Emmanuel Macron may finally be in the service of François Hollande, by appearing in the first round or participating in civic primary Socialist Party and launching the Hollande campaign themes?
this that have long wanted to believe the supporters of Francois Hollande the most optimistic. Emmanuel Macron would actually be an advantage for Francois Hollande, it would be responsible to round up an electorate that no longer believes in the power and François Hollande campaign ideas. But that is if François Hollande has never had control, the creature escaped the master long time. Emmanuel Macron plays its own partition since it is in Bercy. His decision to resign seems to enact a new stage in its emancipation.
