The mayor of Paris will continue on Sunday evening with an interview at 20H de France 2.
She in turn launches into the race. Anne Hidalgo will announce her candidacy for the presidential election Sunday morning from Rouen. A speech by the mayor of Paris is scheduled for 10:45. However, we should not expect a show of force. While sympathizers will be present on site, the “crowd” effect is not sought, says those around him. “The idea is not to hold a meeting”, explains one of his relatives.
“Former industrial city, looking to the future”
On the other hand, some 200 elected socialists will be there, starting with those who today represent his close guard. Among them: Carole Delga, the president of the Occitanie region, Michaël Delafosse, the mayor of Montpellier, Johanna Rolland, the mayor of Nantes, Jean-François Debat, the mayor of Bourg-en-Bresse … civilians are also expected on site.

The future candidate chose Rouen because the Norman city raises several issues that she wishes to address throughout her campaign. “It is a former industrial city, turned towards the future, in the grip of reindustrialisation in connection with the green economy”, underlines an elected official. Another advantage of Rouen: its proximity to Paris, where the candidate will return in the evening for an interview at 20H de France 2.
In the afternoon, Carole Delga, pillar of the upcoming campaign, will be on her side in Grand-Quevilly, for the Rose Festival organized by the PS federation of Seine-Maritime. The president of the Occitanie region – described as “guest of honor” – will meet socialist activists there.
