Bruno Retailleau officially candidate for the head of the party

The boss senators LR, Bruno Retailleau, lifted the suspense this Friday in the columns Figaro : he is officially a candidate for the presidency of his party. “I consider that Laurent Wauquiez had all the qualities to preside over our movement but, in his absence, many asked me to introduce myself”, explained Bruno Retailleau to our colleagues.

A few hours before, he had already garnered a lot of support. “I hope that Bruno Retailleau will be a candidate” for the presidency of LR, had thus affirmed on point MEP François-Xavier Bellamy, believing that “he can bring a lot”. The senator of Bouches-du-Rhône Stéphane Le Rudulier had also brought in L’Express his support for Bruno Retailleau, who according to him “has a political line close to that of Eric Ciotti but has a more unifying temperament”.

The President of the Senate Gérard Larcher had also already estimated that Bruno Retailleau “has all the qualities to preside over our movement”.

Aurélien Pradié soon candidate?

The election of the president of LR will take place on December 3. Faced with the mayor of Orleans, Serge Grouard, Eric Ciotti was so far a favorite. The latter and Bruno Retailleau will attend the back-to-school campus of young Republicans, this weekend in Angers, as will party number 3 Aurélien Pradié who would also prepare his candidacy.
