Thanks, but no thanks. In an interview published on Monday 30 August by Le Parisien / Today in France, Former Justice Secretary Rachida Dati calls on Republicans to “Close the hypothesis of primary“ in front of the presidential elections and to meet again “behind one candidate in January”.
Too bad Republicans don’t learn “New [leur] experience and [leurs] past mistakes regarding the primary: hatred, division, catapults”, the mayor of the 7th arrondissement of Paris “phone call [sa] political family to close the hypothesis of the primary”.
I don’t understand our haste. We are only in August. I’d rather everyone campaign in January and get behind one candidate.Rachida Datic

Rachida Dati believes that“To date, there is no clear candidacy”. “I will support and campaign the sole candidate from the right and center”, she adds.
