A convert to politics almost in spite of himself

In 2000, Annick Girardin, a figure in local politics, created the Cap on the Future party, close to the Left Radical Party. It is the main opposition formation in Archipel tomorrow, identified on the right. Except that political vocations are lacking: she recruits from among her relatives, including Stéphane Claireaux, met in community life. Substitute for Annick Girardin, he became a deputy in June 2014, after a partial legislative process and the appointment of the president of Cape Town for the Future as Secretary of State in the government of Manuel Valls. With the entry of Girardin into the Macron government, he will not leave the Hemicycle for seven years.

The local government “spokesperson”

The deputy, member of the LRM group since July 2017, is considered, by some residents, as the spokesperson for the government on the archipelago, whose community is headed by Archipel tomorrow. At the National Assembly, Stéphane Claireaux positioned himself in the left wing of La République en Marche: in 2019, he co-signed a platform to distribute refugees in rural areas, in order to compensate for the lack of manpower; and he votes against the Comprehensive Security Act, with just nine other LRM deputies. The violent aggression of January 9, 2022 would call his political commitment into question. For the territorial elections in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, in March 2022, his Cap on the Future party has still not presented any list.
