We did it nationally, we have to do it locally

, ”immediately attacks MP Éric Poulliat.

Saturday and Sunday, the 668 members of Renaissance in Gironde are called upon to choose their president for the next five years by electronic vote.

At the head of a list where Bérangère Couillard, the Secretary of State to the Minister for Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion, appears in second position, the parliamentarian believes that his victory would fill two important gaps in his party at the local scale.


The president, without wanting to offend Mr. Skalli, would have political weight while the energy must be deployed throughout the Gironde and not mainly in Bordeaux, where he is a municipal councilor

", argues the one who endorsed his second parliamentary term.

A need to gain in scale is all the more important according to Éric Poulliat as Bordeaux, where the National Renaissance Congress will sit in September 2023, could "

become the seat of Macronie

The daily life of our movement is not just a matter of elected officials.

the accumulation of mandates


The name of the new president of Renaissance Gironde, in charge of the 25 members of the office and the local political strategy of the party, will be announced on Sunday around 6 p.m.
