Investiture of Anne Hidalgo by the PS: "Who is now mayor of Paris?"


FIGAROVOX / TRIBUNE - Yesterday, Anne Hidalgo obtained the nomination of the Socialist Party for the presidential election. Elected officials of the mayor of Paris are worried that the mayor's chair is now left vacant, they demand from the candidate that she specify the identity of her replacement.

She kept repeating it.

No, no and no, 2022 does not interest him.

I'm not looking for anything else (...) Paris fills me up.

I will not be a presidential candidate

, ”proclaimed Anne Hidalgo on June 23, 2020, in an interview with



End of pseudo-suspense: after long weeks of waiting, the mayor of Paris decided to formalize her candidacy for the next presidential election and obtained the nomination of the Socialist Party.

Who is now mayor of Paris, while Anne Hidalgo explains openly that she is doing something else: Douai, Villeurbanne, Arles, Nancy, Montpellier, Blois, Nancy, Rouen,….

The mayor of Paris has undertaken a tour of France to “destroy its Parisian image” before 2022.

Parisians did not vote, just a few months ago, for an absent mayor, abandoning her great responsibilities to campaign throughout France.

Signatories of the platform

In short, everywhere except in Paris!

Her own statements aim to break away from her image as a Parisian by saying that she wants to

"start by putting an end to the contempt, to the arrogance, to the disdain, to the condescension of those who know so little about our lives but decide far from us, about everything. , all the time, without us ”


Is she going to give us the blow of "too many things to be decided in Paris"?

Parisians did not vote, just a few months ago, for an absent mayor, abandoning her beautiful responsibilities to campaign all over France for weeks, worrying more about her election as head of the country than of the city of which she is the first magistrate.

Managing a city, and even more the capital, requires attention, a daily presence, and constant listening.

It is a full time job.

So who is the mayor of Paris in his absence?

Is she on unpaid leave?

Who sits on municipal councils and consultation meetings?

Who negotiates with the institutional partners?

Who receives the prefect, companies, associations, residents?

Who manages the unforeseen, emergencies, crises?

But above all we ask ourselves: who is interested in the concerns of Parisians?

To their concerns?

To their legitimate demands?

And there are many: back to school, failure of the fundamental mission of cleanliness of public space, real estate prices, worrying drift in city finances, flight of the middle classes, chaotic mobility, massacre of the aesthetics of the capital…

We are not questioning the result of the municipal election, but we are entitled to ask you: who is mayor of Paris today?

Signatories of the platform

We are not the only ones to worry! This legitimate question, its own majority is asking: a former PS parliamentarian was received coldly when he wanted to alert him to the presence of too many rats on the quays of the Seine. The absence of mobilization of Anne Hidalgo, it is her deputy David Belliard who speaks about it best:

"the one who won the municipal council on this promise must be fully invested in the realization of this project for which the voters to him. have trusted. The campaign therefore opens a period of uncertainties for the mandate. But being mayor, and all the more mayor of Paris, is a very demanding mandate. It is very difficult to imagine that we can do both correctly and today the device does notis not clear ”.

So we ask you a question, Ms. Hidalgo: who is the mayor of Paris at the moment?

Respecting democracy means respecting the results of the elections: we are not questioning the result of the municipal election, but we are entitled to ask you: who is the mayor of Paris today?

And who will be next since you obviously want to give up your mandate?

Parisians want to know.
