12:10 p.m. : “I call on you to follow the path of reason and of the heart, (…) a path in which its authority will be returned to the State, its sovereignty to the Nation, its identity to the French people.”

11:54 : “This democratic victimization is really tiresome.”

The President of the Law Commission of the National Assembly swept aside the criticisms of the sponsorship system, recalling that “history has shown that no political current has ever been absent from a presidential election for lack of sponsorship”.

11:51 a.m. : Hello, finally a major voice in this campaign! #TAUBIRA

11:51 a.m. : it’s true that there were not enough candidates from the left! Fortunately Mrs. Taubira arrives…,

11:51 a.m. : In the comments, you are divided on this declaration of candidacy. Some welcome this news, others see it as just one more candidacy.

12:05 : “We need to feel our immense diversity.”

After detailing her fourth priority focused on the Republic, Christiane Taubira looks back on her career and the meaning of her candidacy. “We are different, and the Republic is indivisible because society is not uniform.”

11:44 am : “The third major priority is ecology, it’s the business of the century, we know that.”

11:43 am : The second axis of the priorities of the candidate Taubira revolves around social justice. It proposes in particular to revalue the minimum wage to 1400 euros net per month.

11:39 : “Our young people must be able to study, because they are our future.”

Christiane Taubira now presents her priorities, starting with youth. It offers an income of 800 euros per month for 5 years to allow young people to study without having to work.

11:36 : “I am a candidate for the presidency of the Republic”, announces Christiane Taubira.

11:34 am : “I am committed to you because I share with you the aspiration for another mode of government. We want a government that knows how to listen and decide clearly. We want a government that knows how to listen to our abilities rather than infantilizing us …”

Christiane Taubira uses the figure of speech of the anaphora to draw the type of government she wants for France.

11:35 a.m. : “I see those hopes stubbornly nurtured.”

Christiane Taubira is speaking at the moment from Lyon, where she must announce her intentions for the presidential election. Our journalist Antoine Comte is on site.

11:08 : “Looking for sponsorship”, title on its side The voice of the North. The daily followed in the wake of the supporters of Jean-Luc Mélenchon in search of the 500 promises of signatures of elected officials necessary to present themselves.

11:02 : “The threat of abstention weighs on the presidential election”, warns Le Figaro. “The candidates are worried, while the French have still not entered the campaign.

10:42 : “It’s here [au Louvre] that we are going to close the Macron parenthesis, the parenthesis of a policy which has made the French suffer a lot, which has greatly weakened our country.

Marine Le Pen officially launches today in the race for the Elysée with a speech recorded at the Louvre and which will be broadcast at midday. By choosing this place, where Emmanuel Macron had celebrated his victory against her in 2017, she hopes to revive her duel against the outgoing president.

10:38 : “Division is assured defeat”, warns again on franceinfo Samuel Grzybowski, co-founder of the Popular Primary. Less than three months from the first round of the presidential election, the organizers of the Popular Primary are presenting this afternoon the modalities of this election, the objective of which is to “cause a rally” left-wing candidates.

09:54 : “Disoriented”, the activists of the Socialist Party regret “the division” from the left. While Christiane Taubira must formalize her candidacy, adding a name to the list of contenders on the left for the 2022 presidential election, franceinfo went to meet activists of the Socialist Party. Disappointed, some prepare to “a useful vote” for Emmanuel Macron or Valérie Pécresse.

10:04 am : It will put an end to the (false) suspense, today around noon. During a trip to Lyon, Christiane Taubira must lift the veil on her presidential ambitions, after announcing at the end of December that she planned to be a candidate “facing the impasse” of a left more than ever divided. We come back on this occasion to five moments which marked the career of the former Minister of Justice.
