Alexandre Saubot renounces the presidency of Medef


The absence on the starting line of the president of France Industrie is not insignificant in this election.

After almost a month, Alexandre Saubot has decided not to prolong the suspense: he will not be a candidate for the presidency of Medef.

Unlucky candidate against Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux in the previous election of 2018, he did not wish to repeat the experience in 2023.

"The issues of sovereignty and reindustrialization of our country are my main concern",

explains the president of France Industrie and former boss of the powerful Union of Industries and Metallurgy Trades.

"I will continue to devote myself fully to it"

, he adds, to justify his choice not to start racing again.

While potential candidates have until early May to declare themselves, three suitors have formalized their candidacy: Patrick Martin, current delegate president of the employers' organization, Dominique Carlac'h, vice-president and spokesperson for Medef, and Pierre Brajeux, the delegate president of the French Federation of Private Security.

The absence of Alexandre Saubot on the starting line is not insignificant in this election.

Many are those, within the employers, who do not see how the right arm of Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux, Patrick Martin, could now not win.

The declared candidates still have to collect 150 sponsorships from the 560 members of the general assembly.

Once this support has been validated, the campaign will continue for the candidates, who will have to convince the 1,100 delegates from professional and territorial organizations to vote for them.
