Received by Emmanuel Macron this Wednesday, Édouard Philippe campaigned with the head of state for a “grand coalition”.

“It is necessary to call to responsibility the political families who are not used to working together”said Édouard Philippe when he left the Élysée. “Voters must be taken seriously”, estimated the president of Horizons, recognizing a “difficult exercise”.

“A deal”

“Coalition, grand coalition, I am very open about semantics”, he added. For the former Prime Minister, we must achieve “an agreement, a common program” with opposition parties.

The mayor of Le Havre does not envisage “discussions” only with “The Republicans” and the moderate left wing”socialists or ecologists”, not with “far left and far right”he specified.
