Eric Zemmour must declare himself a candidate on Tuesday – Release

Presidential Election 2022dossier
The far-right polemicist planned to post a video around noon on social networks before inviting himself at 8 p.m. on TF1 to announce his candidacy for the presidential election and get out of his air hole.

The announcement will finally no longer be a surprise … After weeks of false suspense fueled by intense media hype, Eric Zemmour will be a candidate for the presidential election of 2022. Far from a bombastic statement live on a historic place as his team once imagined, the former CNews columnist must announce, according to our information confirming those of other media, this Tuesday at noon via a video posted on his Twitter account. The far-right polemicist will then be the guest of the 20 hours of TF1.

The opportunity to parasitize a little more, in passing, the last debate of the candidates for the nomination of Les Républicains, which will begin, as soon as its 20 hours ended, on the competing channel, France 2. Zemmour has the intention, according to the winner of the convention of the traditional right, to recover the most conservative members and voters, in particular those who supported Eric Ciotti and who had voted for François Fillon the previous time. The choice of the date of his first meeting, Sunday at the Zenith in Paris, when we will know the LR candidate on Saturday, was also thought to deprive the right of media oxygen and try to seal the expected relaunch of a political family which he has so far managed to overtake in the polls.

Eric Zemmour is playing big with this official statement: three days after his middle finger thrown to a passerby in Marseille and captured by an AFP photographer, it is urgent for him to relaunch a campaign that has been derailed for several weeks: skidding ahead the Bataclan on the evening of the anniversary of the attacks of November 13, 2015; questionable comments about transgender students, Jean-Michel Blanquer and Doctor Mengele; “Joke” – just as dubious – by pointing an exhibition rifle at journalists in a lounge dedicated to the military and security; difficulties to be credible on the economic and social subjects which return to the front of the campaign debates… The one who benefited from a media surprise effect to pass very quickly the bar of 10% in the presidential polls does not have, in On the other hand, failed to gain the upper hand over his competitor on the far right, Marine Le Pen, who remains ahead in the investigations and appears, by contrast, less “dangerous” than him. Hence the urgency for him to quickly get out of his air hole.
