Uniting Right-Wing Candidate: Sarkozy’s Strategy Against Le Pen

Nicolas Sarkozy has again dubbed Gérald Darmanin as the most credible right-wing candidate to beat Marine Le Pen in the 2027 presidential election.

The only way to beat Marine Le Pen in the presidential election in 2027 would be a “candidate of the Republican right” capable of “federating the right-wing elements who are in Emmanuel Macron’s majority” and those currently “in the opposition”, judged, this Wednesday, August 23, Nicolas Sarkozy. “Without unity between these two camps, nothing will be possible”, he declared, on TF1, estimating that it will be necessary “to create the conditions for this gathering”.

The former President of the Republic even went further, by giving the candidate who, according to him, could take on this task. And unsurprisingly, it is Gérald Darmanin, whom he dubs in his latest book. “He is someone I love very much, who has been very faithful to me. I appreciate its modest origins, I appreciate the fact that it is not formatted like so many others by the big schools. »

“Afterwards, will he one day be a candidate? It is he who will decide. Will he ever be elected? My God, it’s still so long. Until then, there are still four years. Let’s try to see with the current President of the Republic what can be done, ”he added.

“When you are a government party, you never play the worst policy,” he said to the Republicans (LR). In 2022, Nicolas Sarkozy supported the re-election of Emmanuel Macron, and not the candidate of LR, Valérie Pécresse.

The unfair trial against Le Pen

He also judged Wednesday “unjust and insulting” the “illegitimacy lawsuit” brought, according to him, to the leader of the National Rally Marine Le Pen. “A party which presents candidates for the elections and which has a parliamentary group of a hundred deputies, how can one say that they are not Republicans? And I don’t like this systematic far-right trial, these moral lessons,” he said.

However, “I’m not for Marine Le Pen because I think she doesn’t have the experience, she doesn’t have the team and she doesn’t have the project. His economic project is detestable. This is the project of the left thirty years ago. […] I will never vote for her”.
