After the results of the French elections were announced, a losing candidate in a “financial trouble”

but troubles Republican Party She did not stop there, because the losing candidate found herself in a dilemma, because she would not be able to pay the expenses of the womanfor election campaign.

From the party headquarters on Monday morning, the Republican leader announced that she personally owed a loan of up to five million euros. In order to “complete the financing of her campaign”, she asked French And her supporters “emergency help to make up for the expenses of her campaign.”

and excluded Valerie Pecres From the presidential elections in the first round on Sunday, April 10, with a historically low result.

The president of the Ile-de-France regional council came after receiving 4.8 percent of the vote, far from the leader, Emmanuel Macron (27.84%) and the National Front candidate, Marine Le Pen (23.15%) and the leftist Jean-Luc Mélenchon (21.95%). As well as the controversial far-right Eric Zemmour with 7% of the vote.

unexpected scenario

In the face of this weak percentage, political analyst Stefan Zomsteig said, in connection with the “Sky News Arabia” website, “If the presidential candidate, regardless of his political orientation, obtains less than 5%, which gives the right to recover 50% of the campaign costs. For president, his party will have to finance all costs incurred out of his own pocket.”

Because of this scenario, which Republicans, who were waiting for 8 to 10 percent of the vote, at worst, did not anticipate, Valerie Pecresse said her party could not “handle the campaign expenses” and its “financial situation is difficult.”

Therefore, it was necessary for her to launch a “national appeal for donations, which she addressed to all those who gave her votes, and who preferred the beneficial vote, to all French people associated with political pluralism and freedom of expression.”

She also indicated that she “personally owes up to five million euros” and the campaign cost seven million, and that is why she called for assistance to be provided before May 15, the date for the recovery of the amount of compensation for the entire Valerie Becres campaign from the French state.

As a reminder, Chris’ personal assets amount to approximately 10 million euros, according to her declaration to the High Authority for Transparency of Public Life that was announced at the beginning of March. In addition to three homes worth more than 4 million euros, she also recorded that she owns about 1 million euros of shares in the “General Electric” group, making her the Republican candidate one of the richest candidates in this election.

With this call for solidarity and standing with the traditional right-wing party, Valerie Pecres recalls a previous election incident that affected the party itself. After ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy’s campaign accounts were invalidated in 2012 by the Constitutional Council for exceeding the cap, he was also forced to ask his activists to help him pay his debts. The party then launched a “great national subscription” on its website and €11 million was raised in less than two months thanks to what they called “Sarkothon”.

And it doesn’t look like Pecres will be the only one to ask for donations after her defeat. On the night of the election results, the Greens candidate, Yannick Gadot, also paved the way for the generosity of the French, and said in his address to his supporters, “From this evening, the Environmental Party needs your financial support to continue its main battles. I invite you to go to the Support Advocates website. Environmental Protection to make a donation.”
