Five years ago, then Minister of the Environment and President of COP 21, she applauded with a smile the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement. In recent weeks, Ségolène Royal has come back into the spotlight as the chief rammer of macronism. The choice of the term “Beauvau de la Sécurité”? The illustration of an executive “disconnected from the people”, she said on Sud Radio on December 8, ensuring that not many people know the address of the Ministry of the Interior. “In the depths of our countryside, people know what a calf is, a calf that is beautiful, yes…” she laughs hilariously.
Two days later, on RTL, the ex-ambassador of the poles thanked in January, curls the communication of the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, that she enjoins to “shut up his mouth while he shuts the mosques ”. Among the Walkers, it is an understatement to say that we are overwhelmed by the repeated tackles of the former presidential candidate of 2007, whose name has nevertheless circulated several times to enter the government.
“About shutting your mouth, when do you think you apply your advice?” »Replied on Twitter Coralie Dubost, deputy president of the LREM group at the National Assembly. “His only strategy is to create a buzz to exist with an assumed populism, it’s ridiculous, sighs the LREM deputy from Moselle and ex-socialist Ludovic Mendes. Ségolène Royal has spent too much time on the poles: she needs to come back to reality and realize that her time has passed. “
The person concerned does not care and assumes. “If it’s taken up and criticized, it means that I spoke correctly,” she slips to the Parisian. In the past, my intuitions such as just order, participatory democracy or fraternity have been made fun of a lot. Themes that have never been so topical. “Royal does not intend to ease off his media appearances and his pikes in the executive. “There is such a lack of humility and experience,” she laments. When you love politics, you are sad to see a president causing so many disorders. I have all the more freedom to say it because I supported it at the start. “
But what is the former socialist minister looking for? In recent months, she says she has never stopped working, writing two books on “good governance” between two courses on “climate justice” at the school of public affairs of Sciences-po. Is she still thinking about a presidential candidacy? “If this proves useful, as part of a collective decision, starting with the PS, I am ready. I have the experience of a campaign. “But she specifies in the process that” if someone is better placed than me on the left to unite and to campaign, it will not be a problem for me to support him. “
“I won’t let anything be done”
Claiming not to be “in revenge”, the former contender for the Elysee has two convictions: “it is time for a woman to be president” and the period is for seasoned leaders. “The French are vaccinated against candidates appearing out of nowhere and adorned with all the virtues. I think they will choose experienced figures, like in the United States with Biden. With their qualities and their faults known and not discovered during their mandate: it is less glamorous but more secure! Another certainty in the form of a warning: “I will not let the presidential election do anything. “
His “friend” Luc Carvounas, mayor (PS) of Alfortville assures him: “It is not in a personal thing but in the accompaniment of the left. It’s a strong, independent voice that also embodies a form of popular common sense. Despite the 8,000 claimed members of his association Désirs d’avenir and the support of a few elected officials who remained faithful, a presidential adventure today seems risky. “It is difficult to be and to have been: Ségolène Royal is also accountable for the balance sheet of the socialists in power and has no clear strategy”, judges one of his former fellow travelers, for whom “the dynamic is today more on the side of Anne Hidalgo ”. Another experienced woman on the left.
