Former French Foreign Minister and EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier is running for president of France. About this he stated live on TF1 TV channel.
“I have made a decision to be a candidate for the presidential elections in April next year. In less than 8 months the French will elect their new president, ”Barnier said.
“And the world that surrounds us is a dangerous world. We see it at this very moment in Kabul. And this is a fragile and unfair world. This can be seen from climate change and the disasters that they entail in our country, ”Barnier said.
He pointed out “a lot of suffering and injustice, a lot of schisms.” “I am determined to nominate myself for the presidency of a reconciled France, who will respect the French and make them respect France,” he said.
Barnier will represent the center-right Republicans. Presidential elections in France will be held in April 2022.
