Thierry Breton, Stéphane Séjourné or Laurence Boone are expected to lead the list of the Renaissance presidential party in the June 2024 elections.
Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne ruled out Tuesday, November 21, from being the head of the majority list in the European elections in June 2024, thus brushing aside rumors about her possible candidacy. “It’s not my project – but I have no doubt that we will have a good head of list to carry out projects in which, as you will have understood, we very much believe», declared the head of government in an interview with the readers of Latest news from Alsace on the sidelines of a trip to Strasbourg.
The rumor of an Elisabeth Borne candidacy goes hand in hand with that of a government reshuffle which resurfaces after many weeks of speculation in the spring and finally the confirmation of the head of government in July. Several names are also circulating to lead the majority list: Stéphane Séjourné, who heads the presidential Renaissance party and who is already an MEP, Thierry Breton, European Commissioner, or Laurence Boone, Secretary of State for Europe.
In an OpinionWay poll published Monday, the National Rally list led by its president Jordan Bardella received 28% of voting intentions, nine points more than that of the majority. In addition to the RN, other parties such as the ecologists or the communists have already announced their head of list. At the beginning of the month, Élisabeth Borne indicated that the designation of the person who will lead the list of majority parties would take place “When the time comes“.
