Several tenors socialists have in the line of sight of the regional elections of next year. In some regions, such as in the Ile-de-France, the primary will have to decide between the contenders at the top of the list.

Requinqués by their good results in the local elections, the socialists are already preparing for the regional elections of 2021 (the date for which has not yet been precisely determined). “Currently all those who have desires begin to be expressed, but this does not mean that they will necessarily be candidates at the end “, smiled Pierre Jouvet, the national secretary in charge of elections at the PS.
Sometimes names are circulated without the knowledge of their owner. This is especially the case of Bernard Cazeneuve, as some would see well to the top of the list socialist in the Normandy region, although it is unlikely that the former Prime minister of François Hollande accepts.
Region’s most coveted because of its importance, and that the socialists have directed for seventeen years with Jean-Paul Huchon, Ile-de-France interested in multiple personalities. A heavy weight intends to launch themselves into the battle of the investiture : the former boss of the PS Jean-Christophe Cambadélis (which after a tough diet seems rejuvenated ten years). The name of Najat Vallaud-Belkacem also recurs with insistence in the corridors of the PS, but the former minister of Education remains very discreet.
The designation process is not stopped
“To win in the face of Valérie Pécresse, there must be an incarnation strong,” said Luc Carvounas, the mayor of Alforville, who is campaigning for her candidacy. “Najat has not been damaged by the previous quinquennium, and it would be a very good head of the list if she wants,” adds the former mp for the Val-de-Marne, ready to wet himself in the shirt “to turn the meter on electoral” by taking the lead in the regional list in his department. Other names, such as those of senator Rachid Temal, or the president of the group PS to the region, Maxime des Gayets, also circulate.
We seem to be well on your way to a primary in order to designate the champion of the PS for the capital region, the first region of Europe. For the time being, the designation process is not yet formally arrested, but it is likely that the socialists call on, as in the past, their members to choose between the candidates. These primaries can also be used to select the heads of lists in the departments, in coordination with the head of the regional list.
If this process is successful, the vote internal PS could be held as early as this fall. At the same time, the socialists do not despair of eventually convince their partners to the left to make common list with them in the 1st round. The PC would be ready, but EELV, including the national secretary, Julien Bayou would like to lead a list green independent in Ile-de-France, just to show the intentions in the reverse…
“The lesson of the municipal, it is the logic of the gathering”
In the regions of Hauts-de-France and the South (Provence Alpes Côte d’azur), the possibility of a unique list of the left to make dam to the far right, however, is quite large. “If it is not done to present common lists in these two regions, it is that we did not understand the movie “, wants to believe Pierre Jouvet. He still hopes that a comprehensive agreement, the socialists agreeing to waive to the top of the list in areas where they are not outgoing and where conservationists are better placed than them. The most blatant example being the region-Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes. In exchange EELV could support in the 1st round of the presidents PS outgoing in regions such as Aquitaine (Alain Rousset) and Occitania (Carole Delga).
But it will still take much discussion to get there. In Country of the Loire, now led by the right, the former minister Guillaume Garot is working for the moment with a “citizens’ group “composed of people from various professional fields, in order to” develop new ideas ” from the concerns of the citizens. “The issue of the nomination will come after,” says Garot to that ” the lesson of the municipal, it is the logic of the gathering “. Not sure, as I already said, that EELV can hear it as well in this region.

The ecolo party also hopes to pass in front of the PS in Normandy, in Aquitaine, in the far-East (where the socialists could pull up behind Pernelle Richardot, president of their group in the regional council, unless Catherine Trautmann does not fit also in the dance). The party should be more quiet in Britain where the outgoing Loïg Chesnais-Girard can rely on the return in strength of the PS in the towns of brittany. Finally, in the Bourgogne (Marie-Guite Dufay), Centre (François Bonneau), Aquitaine (Alain Rousset) and Occitania (Carole Delga), SP table on the re-election of his outgoing.
