I will always play as a collective.

“I am a presidential candidate to restore French pride”
“We must strike the Macron-Le Pen duel, between immobility and demagoguery,” assured the president of the Ile-de-France region during this return which expected nearly 1,500 people, before unfolding the major axes of his campaign. “I am a presidential candidate to restore French pride, to restore order and restore hope,” she said, in front of a poster where her three-quarter portrait was displayed in blue-white -Red.

Believing that “work must pay”, she set the goal “to increase by at least 10%” net wages, “without this weighing on companies, but with a reduction in social contributions”. And for retirees who have worked and contributed all their lives “we need a dignified retirement” that is “at least equal to the minimum wage,” said Valérie Pécresse.
