This is why neither Anne Hidalgo, nor Valérie Pécresse, already too present in the public space. So here is our selection and feel free to comment to display your agreement / disagreement or, better yet, other proposals.
Alexandra Dublanche, a strong head in support of Valérie Pécresse
She could have been a minister under Emmanuel Macron. Passed by a business school, expatriated in Germany then in the United States where she followed the same master’s degree at Harvard as Amélie de Montchalin, Minister of the Public Service, and that Brune Poirson, former Secretary of State, she had the head of the job. But, “these are not my ideas and at least I can look at myself in the mirror”, assures, without regret, Alexandra Dublanche. Since 2011, she has remained loyal to Valérie Pécresse, whom she met at Harvard when she was Minister of Higher Education. It is also the latter which encourages him, shortly after his return to France in 2012, to run for municipal elections on the lists of Pierre Fond, the outgoing mayor of Sartrouville.

Diane Leyre, a Miss feminist
“As a woman, I want to show that one can be Miss France and a feminist”, had affirmed shortly before her coronation, Diane Leyre, then Miss Ile-de-France.

On Wednesday December 15, she also received the Medal for Equality of Hands from Elisabeth Moreno, the Minister Delegate on the issue. She assured to support “the fight against moral and sexual violence, feminicides, or even salary inequalities”. And there is still work to be done. So of course, it may seem cliché when she says that in “2022, we must say stop to racism and homophobia”, but given the rise of Eric Zemmour, condemned for “provocation to racial discrimination”, it is never too much. “My region is multicultural, with people who come from all over the world,” she explains to Parisian.
