23h55 : Valérie Précresse was the first guest of the political program “Elysée 2022”, on France 2. The president of the Ile-de-France region is seeking the candidacy of the right in the presidential election. She discussed with the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin, in particular on the questions of immigration and asylum, and the environmental activist Camille Etienne. Here are three highlights of this political interview.


22h51 : “I promise you that in 2035 (…) there will no longer be a new vehicle which will come out which will be a thermal vehicle, it will only be non-polluting vehicles “, said Valérie Pécresse earlier. This horizon is that of the European Commission. In July, Brussels proposed to reduce CO2 emissions from new cars in the EU to zero from 2035. This will de facto stop sales of gasoline and diesel vehicles on that date in favor of 100% electric engines. . In France, the 2019 mobility orientation law targets the 2040 horizon.

22h19 : Valérie Pécresse mentioned an amendment introduced in the “separatism” bill making it possible to ban the wearing of the burkini in public swimming pools. She accused Gerald Darmanin and the presidential majority of not having voted for this addition to the text. This amendment, carried by a senator LR, was slipped into the bill when it was voted on by the Senate. But it disappeared from the text once it was passed through the National Assembly. The Minister of the Interior had expressed his opposition to this amendment, recalls Public Senate.

22h01 : Valérie Pécresse believes that she would have voted “assisted reproduction for all”, provided that the majority of children can access their origins, as required by law. Over time, the president of the Ile-de-France region has moved away from traditional conservative circles and their demands, as our journalist Margaux Duguet explains in this article.

21h57 : Should we legalize cannabis? “I am against it because drugs are bad for your health and they can screw up the lives of young people (…). I have seen too many young people failing at school and I cannot advocate the legalization of cannabis.”

21h58 : Should the RSA be extended to 18-25 year olds? “I think that the RSA will lock the young people in the assistance and I want to give them an income young-active only in the trades which recruit”, answers Valérie Pécresse. This is questioned by young French first-time voters on various questions.

22h37 : “We have nearly a million unfilled jobs in the private sector”, said Valérie Pécresse a few minutes ago. It’s wrong. There are a little over a million job offers available on Pôle emploi. But available job vacancies are not unfilled jobs. La Dares gives the figure for vacant jobs. There were 264,800 in the second quarter of 2021. Thus in 2018, 3.2 million job offers were submitted to Pôle emploi. Of these offers, 2.9 million had been filled. Or 300,000 unfilled.

A job is considered vacant or not filled when steps have been taken to fill it – for example by placing a job offer on Pôle Emploi – but these have not been successful. Either for lack of candidate, or because the recruitment procedure was abandoned by the company, or because the candidates who answered did not correspond to the expectations of the employer, as explained by franceinfo.

21h35 : “Yes, there are too many immigrants in France”, declares Valérie Pécresse, during her debate with the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin. “Uncontrolled immigration and failed integration can disrupt a nation. We need to reduce flows because we are no longer able to integrate properly. We must stop uncontrolled immigration.” She defends the principle of asylum requests “at the border”.

21h12 : “I just read that Eric Zemmour defended Tariq Ramadan”, has slipped Valérie Pécresse. The candidate for the primary of the right alludes to the last book of the polemicist. The latter evokes a pleasant lunch with the Islamologist in 2012. He also expresses his sympathy for the man accused of rape. It is according to him, “fell into a trap”. According to him, the facts with which he is accused are only “the pangs of love”, report L’Obs.

21h13 : “The Americans mistreated us, we do not treat an ally in this way. I ask Joe Biden that there can be the recognition of a pillar in NATO (…). We must take advantage of this bad way that was made (…) to reaffirm to our allies that we want European strategic autonomy and that we must have it because the United States does not respect us. “

20h58 : Valérie Pécresse has just declared that she had adopted in Ile-de-France, as president of a region, the first charter of secularism in France. It was in 2017. A year before Hauts-de-France, chaired by his great rival on the right, Xavier Bertrand. This “regional charter of the values ​​of the Republic and secularism” has aroused criticism from the left opposition. A recent Mediapart survey (paid item) concluded that it had not brought tangible results. Other national secular charters exist, at school, in public services, especially since 2007.

20h57 : “There is a match and nobody imagined that there could be a match before I prepared my candidacy. I love boxing, and it’s to win. It’s a love that comes to me from afar. I know that I can win this match. This match is not against my friends, it is against Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen. “

Valérie Pécresse also comments on this survey commissioned by LR. “Poulidor is the champion of the French”, she emphasizes again. She says she is more in favor of an open primary to designate the right-wing candidate, while the right still hesitates with a closed congress. “I will also go” in this case, she adds.

20h40 : According to an Ifop poll, of which France Télévisions and franceinfo were aware, 27% of supporters The Republicans polled believe that Valérie Pécresse is the candidate of the right who has “the most luck” to reach the second round, far behind Xavier Bertrand. This investigation was ordered by the party leadership and presented to a political bureau on Wednesday.
