Éric Ciotti, deputy and departmental advisor LR of the Alpes-Maritimes and primary candidate that his party could organize in the context of the 2022 presidential election, called on Saturday, August 28, 2021 for a
peaceful countryside, before his candidacy speech in Levens, in the hinterland of Nice.
It is a campaign that I wish serene, peaceful, on ideas, the deputy for Nice told the press, before speaking in front of around 2,000 of his supporters seated in a rural atmosphere.
Ciotti wants a “peaceful” primary on the right
The French look with concern at the threats weighing on France, we must provide them with answers in unity, insisted Eric Ciotti, two days after unveiling his candidacy for the Republican primary.
Our family must be united, united, I have no opponents in this election, only friends, whether Xavier Bertrand, Valérie Pécresse, Philippe Juvin or Michel Barnier, maybe others, we have a duty of unity, he continued.
We know that at the exit it will only take one candidate, if there are two, it is not even worth going further, to warn Éric Ciotti:
This is not a quarrel, let alone a war, it is a process of coming together that will allow voters to choose the best or the best for France..
“Strong” and very right-wing ideas
During this primary Eric Ciotti intends to advance
strong ideas like
blood rights to obtain French nationality, so as not to become French by chance,
a flat tax on income tax or
the very sharp reduction in inheritance taxes.
Similarly Éric Ciotti intends to make proposals
to give meaning to the course of the Republican school also for
a major climate preservation policy, with science and progress as solutions, particularly through nuclear energy.
During his speech, referring to his
friends Laurent Wauquiez and Bruno Retailleau, ultimately non-candidates for this primary, Eric Ciotti launched
a call to all those who share with (him) this fight to defend together a strong France served by a strong right.
It is September 25 that the LR members, during a virtual congress, should endorse or not this process of primary on the right. Until then, polls should make it possible to calibrate the contenders.
Xavier Bertrand, ex-LR, who for the moment is ahead of his rivals in the polls, but without crushing the match, has so far categorically excluded from participating in any primary.
