Thanks, but no thanks. In an interview published on Monday August 30 by Le Parisien / Today in France, former Minister of Justice Rachida Dati calls on Republicans to “close the hypothesis of the primary” for the presidential election and to meet again “behind a single candidate in January”.
Regretting that Republicans don’t learn “no [leur] experience and [leurs] past errors concerning the primary: hatred, divisions, slingshots “, the mayor of the 7th arrondissement of Paris “call [sa] political family to close the hypothesis of the primary “.
I don’t understand our rush. We are only in August. I would rather be in favor of everyone campaigning and ending up behind a single candidate in January.Rachida Dati
