The boss of the MoDem, François Bayrou, said he was convinced that the center would be "the political current that will win" the presidential election of 2027, calling in an interview with Le Parisien the possible applicants to wait because the ballot will be played "in the last months ".
While a recent poll places former Prime Minister Édouard Philippe far ahead among right-wing voters with a view to 2027, François Bayrou recalled that "the presidential election is not aimed at right-wing voters", but that “it is aimed at all French people”. “And the basis of the majority is the center. In 2027, it is this political movement that will win. I believe it, and I will do anything for it,” he said.
As for the ambitions of the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, who distinguished himself at the end of August during his political comeback, François Bayrou invokes his own "experience" which "helps us not to be moved by the upsurges, the tensions, the impatient".
