20 April. The debate between the two rounds of the presidential elections should take place on Wednesday, April 20, at 21:00 on France 2 and TF1 TV channels, the two TV channels announced.

It will also air on BFM, CNews, LCI and France info. However, the names of the two journalists who will not lead are not yet known. These debates have become a tradition since 1974. Only in 2002 they did not take place, Jacques Chirac refused to participate in the exercise against Jean-Marie Le Pen.

In 2017, the two-round debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen was watched by almost 16.5 million viewers on all channels that broadcast it, down from the 2007 and 2012 editions.

Interview of the day

Anticorrosive. McKinsey, Alstom, MSC case: Cases in which political and financial conflicts of interest have surfaced have become more frequent over this five-year period. During this presidential campaign, Anticor carried out two significant actions: a leaflet for Gallimard, “Resist Corruption” and a manifesto presented to twelve candidates for the highest office. “Cultural fight” against corruption, explains the president of the association, Eric Alt.

As for the McKinsey case, he believes that “it poses a problem for the functioning of the state. In particular, we were interested in the use of McKinsey in the vaccination campaign, while the government could do it. The problem is this: in trusting these firms to evaluate public policy, we often forget that the conclusions are based on a pronounced ideology. Efficiency, according to the Accounts Chamber, has also not been demonstrated, because. advisers whose daily rate is equal to the monthly salary of a civil servant. »

Anticor also made fifteen anti-corruption proposals to twelve presidential candidates. Four answered. “This is another third of the candidates, and we expect several more. But it is true that there is a cultural battle to be waged. I don’t think we can talk about tolerance, but there is humility. For this reason, some may be tempted to abstain. The example set by elected officials is very important. But by our actions we want to show that each of us can change something. »

Big Oral Day

Agriculture. It is the turn of the National Federation of Farmers’ Unions (FNSEA) from Wednesday morning to give the “big oral” to candidates in the presidential election. If Yannick Jadot, Jean-Luc Mélenchon and Anne Hidalgo decline the invitation, several candidates will be in Besançon over a twelve minute presentation followed by a question and answer session.

Marine Le Pen, Eric Zemmour, Valerie Pecresse, Fabien Roussel and Jean Lassalle are present, while Emmanuel Macron will speak at the congress via video link.

Performances that take place the day after publication of the survey, commissioned by the agricultural union Ifop, held from February 24 to March 14 with the participation of 1,500 farmers representing French farms. According to the poll, farmers “would vote 30% for Emmanuel Macron, 13% for Valerie Pecresse, 12% for Eric Zemmour, 11% for Marine Le Pen, 9% for Jean-Luc Mélenchon, 8% for Jean Lassalle, 7%. for Yannick Jadot.

Support of the day

Hunting. FNC President Willy Schraen said in an interview with Le Parisien that he would vote for Emmanuel Macron in the first round.

The choice that seems to be made partly by exclusion, dismissing quickly – and without surprise – Yannick Jadot, Jean-Luc Mélenchon and Anne Hidalgo. The FNC boss then disqualified Fabien Roussel because the PCF candidate would vote in the second round for the best left wing candidate; Marine Le Pen, “the primal embodied primal animalism”, in the words of Willy Schraen; and Eric Zemmour because he is likely to call for a vote for Marine Le Pen on April 24th.

As for Valerie Pekress, Willy Schraen accuses her of “signing in 2021 the association’s regional animal charter L214 with anti-hunting measures.”

So that leaves Emmanuel Macron, to whom the president of the National Hunters’ Federation weaves praise: “In these five years, not a single law or amendment has been adopted that could harm hunting. Every time we had a problem with the Minister of Ecology, he intervened. Indeed, it should be remembered that Nicolas Hulot left the government shortly after the meeting, which was attended by lobbyist Thierry Coste.

Absent day

Nicholas Sarkozy. Conversely, there is one whose positioning is still pending, and that is Nicolas Sarkozy. In 2017, the former president of the republic announced his support for François Fillon sixteen short days before the first round in a Facebook post that was deleted. It is clear that the date has already passed.

While Anne Hidalgo could count on the presence of François Hollande last week in Limoges, Valerie Pecresse has so far rallied Chirac’s name on the side of the former heads of state through the mediation of Claudius.

According to information from the Parisian, confirmed by France Inter, Nicolas Sarkozy is also not expected to attend the LR Porte de Versailles candidate’s meeting next Sunday. A promotion that the candidate didn’t seem to have hoped for for a while, as she told RMC last week, “I’m tracking my route.”

Transcript of the day

Health. What are the proposals of the twelve candidates in the presidential election for health reasons? The CentreFrance editorial staff delved into their programming in three areas: fighting medical deserts, the hospital and the attraction of medical professions.

The future of regional health agencies, funding for hospitals, the state of nursing homes, medical staff salaries, hiring, what to do with the numerus clausus, medical research, nursing homes… Topics that water most programs.

Serious analysis of the day

Environment. The Shift Project, a think tank that “works in favor of a carbon-free economy,” invited candidates to explain how they can move the country off fossil fuels over the next five years.

Three of them feel less ill than the rest: “Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Valerie Pecresse and Yannick Jadot describe in their letters to Shift a fairly accurate approach to some basic issues. Among other candidates, the described approach remains mostly superficial But on the whole, the analysis laments the lack of a plan. “We don’t think any of the candidates take that approach.”

Why Wednesday doesn’t resonate with the presidential campaign?

In particular, the lack of precision in building a low-carbon industry, the precise definition of levers and specific targets for moving towards greater sobriety, the issue of integrating climate issues into education, or even the issue of climate adaptation are pointed out. change. ” The system problem is still visible through the narrow end of the telescope. nuclear alternative against Many still feel that renewables are largely sufficient to fuel the energy transition debate. And the issue of oil yield often boils down to debate for or against electric car or public transport ‘, concludes the study.
