Anne Hidalgo, chosen socialist candidate in the presidential 2022

The French Socialist Party gave this Thursday its unanimous support to the Parisian Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, to be his candidate in the presidential elections of April 2022, in which the surveys a few possibilities of Victoria.

The 208 sponsors received, compared to the 34 of his only opponent, the supply of agriculture and current Header of Le Mans, Stéphane Le Foll, anticipated that there was no surprises in the open vote at 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

The provisional figures of this scrutiny reserved for militants were clear: with a 90% count, Hidalgo took "more than 72%" of the votes, the first Secretary of Training, Olivier Faure.

"I am particularly proud and honored to defend the colors of our party, are the colors of a left that assumes the exercise of power, from a left of government that will never be fully content with indignantly or protest, but wants to act concretely "He held the candidate.

In his ordinary Congress in mid-September, the PS, through Faure, had already supported it, without appointing it, giving support to emblematic proposals launched since Hidalgo announced his candidacy that same month, as the intention to duplicate the salary of the Teachers.

Tonight the leader of the PS admitted that the pending path will be complicated: "We all know here that nobody wants our victory (...) We know your capacity, strength, courage and determination. It awaits you arduous work. You can be sure that you Let's accompany, "he said.

Le Foll had kept his candidacy despite being aware that luck did not play in his favor. "I am a more than marginal candidate, sometimes it takes a lot of perseverance to exist in a political debate," he had claimed this week, claiming to feel despised by the formation of him.

The PS now puts its machinery at the service of Hidalgo and seeks union with other leftist forces, particularly with ecologists, which on September 28 chose the Euro-ounce Yannick Jadot as a aspirant.

His official investiture will take place on October 23 in Lille, a fief of his political mentor, Martine Aubry, with a convention that will make an appeal to the collective mobilization at half a year of those elections.

On the way to the presidential ones already has as opponents confirmed to the Ultraderechist Marine Le Pen or the leftist Jean-Luc Mélechon. Conservatives will choose the representative of him in an internal congress, and the current president, Emmanuel Macron, has not advanced the intentions of him.

The irruption of the writer and essayer éric Zemmour, omnipresent in the French precamient despite not having taken the passage, is another possible obstacle in the presidential ambition of Hidalgo, 62 years and natural of San Fernando (Spain).

The polls attribute to Hidalgo less than 10% of the voting intentions, well below 24% achieved by Macron, according to a survey of this week's EFOP Development Institute, or 22% of Le Pen, which would happen to the second round.

Its possibilities are also reduced by the traditional fragmentation of the left-day vote between socialists, ecologists and the populist formation the Inselian France, by Mélechon, and by a chosen cholented on the right, with immigration as a key factor of these elections.

This Thursday was only the beginning. "Tonight, a campaign that unites all socialist militant forces," said Hidalgo at the Parisian bar L'Office, whom he had summoned the press to offer him the first statements after the recount.

The presidential candidate was elected Council of Paris in 2001 and is Mayor of the capital Gala since 2014. In 2020 he renewed his term under the umbrella of the platform "Paris in Commun", a citizen alliance, according to his words, which gathered politicians of Various sensitivities, from communists to ecologists.

The ecological transition is an axis of its program and also the theme of the round table in which it will participate in Valencia at the Federal Congress of the PSOE, where it will maintain a job with the president of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, and as he advanced This Thursday will speak with him from the "engine role of social democracy in Europe".
