Philippe Seguin, a social Gaullist and former law professor, was married to a farmer. In 2001, she was elected to Oise's town hall. She was also national secretary of UMP (ancestor to the Les Republicains, LR Party) to the middle classes during Nicolas Sarkozy's presidency.
She was elected senator for Oise in 2011. In 2011, she remembers meeting Emmanuel Macron, a young Minister of Economy. He used to cross his department to take her to Amiens or Le Touquet. He would always ask her "How's Beauvais?" at each meeting. It has changed since I crossed the city to get home. "I was like, ..." he flatters me," she says.
She was opposed to marriage for all and was Francois Fillon's supporter in the 2017 presidential election. He is still at his side on Trocadero podium. Since then, she has left LR "a sclerotic political party" to support Emmanuel Macron, who "bluffed” her. During the "great debate", which followed the "yellow vests", she made a connection with him. She was elected president of Villes de France, an association that brings together communities of between 20,000 and 100,000 people. He applied for her advice, "Trust the mayors!"
She was one of the architects for the "Action - Coeur de ville” program to revitalize centers in medium-sized cities. She was also the leader of the National Agency for the Cohesion of the Territories (a public institution that ensures coordination between the State, local authorities and the state), which she described as "the challenge of the next five years". She said that she explained why she was chosen to lead the National Agency for the Cohesion of Territories. This subject is, according to her, "the challenge of the next five-year period."
The government will be led by the woman who claims she is close to former Prime Minister Edouard Philippe. She will also find well-known heads like Bruno Le Maire, Gerald Darmanin and Sebastien Lecornu. The right wing continues to grow.
