Not a candidate for the primary of the left
The former socialist deputy, who in recent years has become an entrepreneur and producer of honey and ice cream, has been slow to establish his strategy, as evidenced by “test balloons”, according to his entourage, his media interventions in recent months. Covid contamination, which has “laid flat for four months” at the start of the year, finished disrupting the timing of his declaration.
The former minister wants to stay away from the PS apparatus and will not participate in any primary, he who lost two in 2012 and 2017. He aims nothing other than to be “in the second round” of the presidential election.

Despite the lack of support from a party, Arnaud Montebourg confided “to feel the legitimacy to bring to power” the “ideas, struggles and projects [qu’il dit avoir] worn in the past “ and today become according to him “the center of gravity of the convictions of the French”, like the fight against neoliberal globalization, or reindustrialization and the Sixth Republic.
Still, for the moment, the one who was president of the departmental council of Saône-et-Loire does not exceed 5% in the few polls that tested him. His candidacy is added to many others on the left, from the rebellious Jean-Luc Mélenchon to that, likely, of the socialist Anne Hidalgo through the candidate from the environmentalist primary.
