Refusal to side with Yannick Jadot

During this interview, Anne Hidalgo also rejected the call to side with the candidacy of Yannick Jadot, launched the day before by Sandrine Rousseau. At the same microphone, the special advisor of the environmental candidate had called for Anne Hidalgo to join their campaign instead: “I said, come Anne and collaborate with us, come and cooperate with us, come and take your place in this ecological and social adventure. “ “It is not a question of domination, of humiliation of one political force vis-à-vis another”, she had assured.

Anne Hidalgo firmly refused this call on Monday, October 25:

The PS candidate thus insisted on the legitimacy of the incarnation of her socialist political family in the presidential election. “This family will continue to exist and I will wear its colors with pride. Have we been successful all the time in history? No. Have there been failures, mistakes? Yes. You have to assume them, no one is perfect, but we learn ”, she insisted. Mme Hidalgo thus affirmed: “I am a woman of the left, an environmentalist by deeds, and that, no one will come and take it away from me. “
